1905, the North Pole: Captain Mortimer (Rory Wilton) is on a rescue mission for an exploration vessel that got lost in the ice a couple of years ago that's also important for him on a personal level, as the captain of that ship, Streiner (Tim Cartwright) was a very good friend of his. However, once up in the icey seas, Mortimer's ship hits an iceberg, an incident that costs many a sailor's lives, and ultimately the only survivors are Mortimer, his second in command Barnabas (Johnny Vivash), privileged beyond belief Gideon (David Lenik), crewmen Charles (Jake Watkins) and Marlowe (Ricardo Freitas), and stowaway Carmen (Beatrice Barrilà), who make it off the boat to some nearby caves to wait for the next rescue mission - which might be two years off, which is not too pleasant an outlook giving the cold and lack of provisions. The good news then is that they actually find Streiner, and alive even - but the not so good news is that he has gone insane and dangerously so. But the real bad news is, our heroes also stumble upon some reptilian-like humanoids - and they're out to feast on humans ...


Now of course, this is a movie that takes its inspiration from rich horror history, and Alien most readily springs to mind, but also a number of other influences from H.P. Lovecraft's body of work (which is even quoted in the film) to Creature from the Black Lagoon and in a more roundabout way classic Doctor Who, but that doesn't mean the film's a mere copycat, as taken by its own terms, Freeze works as a pretty cool suspense piece that's tight where it ought to be, places the scares in all the right moments, and builds up tension very nicely. And a very competent cast only helps to make this a pretty cool genre piece for sure.
