The Last Winter (2006): Horror / Mystery / Thriller

Kubrick’s and Carpenter’s influences mix in this thriller that went utterly under the radar. A slow burn, dark, claustrophobic, environmental, psychedelic mystery that will make the viewer want to find out how this arctic mystery ends. With characters like the ones you meet here, you’ll probably find yourself undecided whether they deserve what’s happening to them or not. Production-wise, it’s an ambitious effort that falls short in the use of CGI. I guess the budget of two and a half lemons takes the blame for that one. Despite the school of thought you follow, the film does not make it easy on your final decision as to whether it is a half-baked or a well-crafted film. One thing is for sure though, it won’t leave you indifferent.
