Director James Felix McKenney | 2010 | 73 minutes | Horror | English
Ray Pelletier (Michael Rooker, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, The Walking Dead) is looking forward to a quiet weekend of ice fishing with his family. Unfortunately for him the obnoxious big city father-son duo of Steve and Stevie Cote has picked the same weekend to spend at the remote frozen lake. But the two families’ petty squabbles are soon eclipsed by a much greater enemy: something has awoken under the ice and its prey is human. Miles from civilization and with only a few inches separating them from the freezing water below, the Pelletiers and Cotes must now find a way to work together to fight the vicious creature that’s out to hunt them.
Director James Felix McKenney’s HYPOTHERMIA is a modern spin on the classic monster movie, featuring memorable performances from horror vet Rooker and co-stars Blanche Baker (The Girl Next Door) and Greg Finley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager).
