    The film is ridiculous and laugh-out-loud funny, though it’s sometimes hard to tell if this is intentional or not. Either way, it remains riveting because of its effective tropes.

    Sometimes bad, never boring and, at the last, completely bonkers, it’s proof at least that you can freeze cheese.

    It's good to see Harlin back in the mountains, and while this isn't on par with Cliffhanger's thrills and spills, it's a smartly-executed little whatdunnit.

    As Renny Harlin's career progresses, it seems more and more that his early gems were merely happy accidents.

    It’s cheesy enough fun while it lasts, but in the Harlin pantheon, it isn’t a patch on “Deep Blue Sea.” Then again, few things are.

    The students keep filming when it is insane to do so, and an avalanche of speculative tosh smothers everything except our mocking laughter.

    Harlan’s film—written by Vikram Weet—is a routine low-budget genre picture, with blandly attractive young actors overmatched by the freakiness lurking in the wilderness.

    I watched this on Demand today.. I personally love IFC, it brings simplicity back to the scene, the writing I thought was brilliantly subdued, but was able to allow for a unique juvenile building of fear and excitement for what may lie around the next snow covered bend on the Mountain I am retired army.. I have been to the Urals, my father in Antarctica, I have also been in the Carpathians in Transylvania.. I thought was such a twist, you really have to be interested in conspiracy theories, or interested in per 1960 science.. I do not want to ruin this film for anybody.. But lets say.. I wants you to believe
