Directed by Brandon Slagle (Crossbreed), based on James Cullen Bressack’s story and adapted by Robert Thompson, Forst stars Vernon Wells as Grant and Devanny Pinn as Abbey, a father and daughter who have not seen one another for years. She wants him to be part of her life as well as the part of the life of the child she is pregnant with. They go fishing and on the way, the car slides off the road, stranding them on the side of a dangerous mountain during a storm.
Grant tries to go for help while Abbey is trapped inside the car, covered in blood and near death thanks to injuries and freezing weather blasting through the smashed windows. As she struggles through madness, she’ll do anything to stay alive. Seriously, I looked down for a moment at the end and I was absolutely shocked by this movie. How often does that happen?
Oh yeah — that wolf on the cover totally shows up too. But man, what happens in the third act? You’re either going to be so astounded you’ll pull up closer or quit this movie in disgust. There’s nothing in-between. Trust me.
Frost is available on digital and blu ray from Cleopatra Records. There’s also a soundtrack featuring Rick Wakeman (Yes), Geoff Downes (Yes/Asia) and Terry Reid.
