Frozen

Three cash-strapped young ski bums (Emma Bell, Shawn Ashmore, Kevin Zegers) con their way onto the slopes, then pay a huge price when a feckless lift operator leaves them dangling before an oncoming blizzard, with no hope of rescue until the following weekend. Writer-director Adam Green (Hatchet) was probably hoping to accomplish something on par with Chris Kentis's terrifying Open Water (2003), in which two scuba divers are left for shark bait by inattentive tour guides. But a stuck chairlift just doesn't exert the same primal terror as a roiling sea, and to make up the difference, Green would need a better cast and sharper dialogue than he has here.
