Unrelenting suspense from beginning to end in spite of a few shortcomings
Somewhere near the arctic circle scientists happen upon a mammoth, frozen in the ice. As it turns out the age-old creature itself maybe dead, but inside the mammoth there’s something very alive…
“The Thaw” is following in the footsteps of “The Thing” (isolation scenario) and “Slither” (disgusting bugs). Clearly showing its low budget the movie still manages to get all its effects good enough to be convincing and its mostly unknown acting-ensemble pulls off their respective characters nicely. Val Kilmer does an OK job – something to be considered a pleasant surprise these days. If you are a fan of his, know that Kilmer gets only little screen time.
To me “The Thaw” really delivered. Just like “Splinter” it’s one of those small productions that make you shiver and cringe by what you see on screen as much as by making you imagine how it would be to be confronted with the horrors they show you. Instead of “Highlight-Reel-Slashing” and a scare now and then you get constant terror till the end and a depressingly desperate and hopeless scenario.
Was everything great about “The Thaw”? No. But all it’s shortcomings never hinder the emotional impact of the movie which is what I think movies are all about. I think the prominent (pushy) Global Warming theme of the movie has put some viewers off so much that they don’t give this little gem enough credit.
Thaw…Not Exactly Chilling.
It had some brief moments of entertainment, but overall it was Luke warm at best. The producers must’ve blown their budget on hiring Val Kilmer to fill some dead spots in the movie. Kilmer kind of walks through this movie and plays a dopey doc that wants these parasites to infest mankind just to make a point about global warming. Supposedly this movie takes place very cold (or somewhere in Canada.) Unfortunately, there isn’t a lick of smoke we can see exiting their mouths in a supposed subzero climate. As a matter of fact, there was barely a drop of snow to be seen anywhere. Oh yeah, global warming. Throw in a bunch of 30 something year old grad students that are supposedly the most brilliant of their class and viola! LOL! Whoever the actress was that played Kilmer’s daughter, should be given a Golden Turkey award for most pathetic portrayal of a confused daughter to a wacky mad scientist. I mean bad!! This movie delivers thrills for a buck at Red Box, but it’s not worth a penny more.
