I had heard about this movie on a couple of my favorite movie websites and I decided to check it out when I noticed it was going to be showing at a small theater near my college campus. I wasn't expecting much; in all honesty I was hoping it wasn't going to be so cheesy I was going to have to leave half way through. But "The Last Winter" was a very, very cool little film with a couple of very eerie and creepy scenes that really come out of nowhere. The story revolves around an oil drilling crew stationed in Alaska who experience supernatural feelings and visions before a horrendous series of grisly incidents begins to take place. The movie has a fairly strong message about global warming and though I'm not one who worries about this because I really feel it's pushed on us so much to get political leaders elected more than anything, the movie still works. Fissenden is the director of the horror film "Wendigo" and this film deals with the ancient beasts, as well as the darkness of the human psyche. If you like bizarre horror and Ron Perlman from "Hellboy," then check this little gem out!

Don't let a few negative opinions dissuade you from discovering this chilling and intelligent indie gem.

If you are a fan of moody, thought-provoking thillers drenched in melancholia (very close in tone to something like John Carpenter's The Thing) then this film is for you.

If you gravitate towards the more popular, mainstream horror fare or just the gory stuff, try watching this with an open mind and hopefully expand your horizons!

A truly excellent genre film.

Not the best film I've ever seen, but a damn good one and definitely worth seeing, especially if you're in the right frame of mind. The story is creepy, the atmosphere even more so, and the acting is good for an independent film. If nothing else, this movie is a refreshing change of pace from the same old hollywood "blockbuster" sequels, tired "super hero" remakes, or yet another Will Smith retread... Just how many times can an actor play the same role in different films before audiences get bored?

Give it a shot. You may be surprised.

An interesting movie that has a range of good and bad points.

A brief synopsis would be that here we have a small group of people in a very harsh environment who start to experience supernatural things. A sort of cabin fever sets in and they hold on to their reason to differing extents. The fact that this is played out in the harsh arctic adds a different dimension to things. As per any extreme of nature, you only need a couple of minor things to go wrong before you are deeply in trouble. Throw in people losing their minds - or having their minds messed with by the supernatural - is hardly going to help.....

Outside of Ron Perlman there are no really big names here for my mind and the acting isn't always brilliant. But it is steady enough and given what appears to have been a limited budget the movie gets the job done that it set out to do. And this has been achieved through old fashioned suspense and through the movie not really bothering to explain much what on earth is the nature of the supernatural. In many movies you get that mapped out for you. That X sort of monster wants Y to happen. Here it is more vague. And again, the setting of the film is part of the reason it works. The sense of tension would not be anywhere near as high without the film conveying a sense of isolation.

This is a three star movie. At the end of the day it is a fun Sunday afternoon flick to watch. Or as a gift for the horror fan in your circle of friends.

Somewhat problematic, but I enjoyed it. Before I get into what I liked or didn't like about this film, I wanted to comment on the negative reviews. I found it ironic that so many of them seemed to direct the majority of their anger at the environmental themes found in the film, as opposed to the camera work, storytelling, and acting.

It's a work of fantasy, people. If you don't happen to subscribe to current global-warming theories, this movie isn't attempting to change your mind. I mean, tying global warming to vengeful supernatural entities that may or may not exist outside of the minds of the protagonists? Do any of these reviewers really think Larry Fessenden is trying to suggest that this is what's really going on with the environment?

It struck me more as a "what if" film. If I watch a film about a young girl possessed by demonic entities, I don't base my enjoyment of it on whether or not I believe in god, the devil, or the minions of either.

I can enjoy The Exorcist, whether or not I believe that the events it depicts could happen in real life..

(puts soapbox away)

The Last Winter is slow, but very atmospheric. Comparisons to the John Carpenter version of The Thing are pretty apt, with regards to setting and tone, although The Last Winter is far less bleak and paranoid, and the characters are more appealing.

It certainly takes its time developing and the effects are modest, but fairly effective. Or maybe I just have a soft-spot in my heart for daemonic elk? Some very nice performances, as well, although Ron Pearlman's character is perhaps a bit overdone. The swooping camera movement that mimics the viewpoint of the crows (ravens?) that appear in the film as they fly over the survey camp was a very nice touch.
