The Last Winter

Ron Perlman     d/ Larry Fessenden

This film represents a new horror genre: ecological horror. An oil extraction outpost in the arctic is beset by creepy crawlies and things that go bump in the night. We begin with a cast of a dozen or so and watch them dwindle down to...maybe none.

Pretty effective. A bit slow-paced in the middle section but the time was spent developing some of the characters so we got to care while they were eventually dispatched. Good miss-en-scene, sound design. LF has been making good quality scary movies for decades with little money...this is another.
