Product Description

A chronicle of the life and art of the comic, provocateur, and social critic, George Carlin.

Amazon.com

Busy character actor Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) provides the main impetus to see Hypothermia, an old-fashioned creature feature about a monster lurking in the depths of a frozen lake. Rooker acquits himself well in his everyman role as a husband and father who takes his family on an ice-fishing vacation; once there, his plans are upset by the arrival of an obnoxious father-son duo, as well as the more disconcerting discovery of an aquatic monster with gastronomic designs on Rooker and company. Produced by Larry (The Last Winter) Fessenden's Glass Eye Pix, which oversaw such inspired independent horror films as The Innkeepers, House of the Devil, and Stake Land, Hypothermia aims for the lean, no-nonsense feel of a '50s-era monster movie, with director James Felix McKenney (Satan Hates You) executing the story in just 72 minutes. That approach hones the focus down to the struggle between Rooker and the monster, though it also leaves little room for fully developed characters that are more than just victims in waiting. One can also appreciate McKenney's decision to use a full-body suit for his monster instead of CGI, but the result is awkward and unconvincing, which neutralizes much of the tension used to set up its appearance. Still, Rooker does much of the heavy lifting, with able assist from vet Blanche Baker, and the chance to see him in a heroic lead role after decades of heelish character parts may be the picture's chief selling point. --Paul Gaita
