The new UK quad for serial killer thriller, The Frozen Ground, claims that we finally have a serial killer film to rival Seven. A bold statement indeed, but one which I cannot take seriously. Seven is perfection, in every aspect, and you are going to have to come up with something incredibly unique to ever come close to being as good as it, let alone rival it.
However, while The Frozen Ground has no right being compared to Seven, the new UK trailer certainly delivers a menacing atmosphere and a truly chilling vibe that really works. Simplicity is the name of the game here, and the trailer barely shows anything but delivers everything. I was intrigued by this film as we really don’t have enough serial killer flicks in my opinion, and on first impressions I thought we had a film that would pay homage to the classic serial killer flicks of the 90’s. This new trailer indicates that The Frozen Ground might actually be worth seeing, and it just might be quite good!
Written and directed by Scott Walker, The Frozen Ground cast includes John Cusack, Nicolas Cage, Vanessa Hudgens, Radha Mitchell, Katherine LaNasa, 50 Cent and Dean Norris.
The Frozen Ground arrives in UK cinemas July 19th.
“Frozen Ground” follows Alaskan detective Glenn Flothe (Cage) as he sets out to end the murderous rampage of Robert Hansen (Cusack), a serial killer who has gone unnoticed for 13 years. As the bodies of street girls start to add up in Anchorage, fear strikes a chord with the public. Risking his life, Detective Flothe goes on a personal manhunt to find the killer before the next body surfaces. When a seventeen year old escapee reveals key information about the case, Flothe is finally able to trail the killer. But will he catch him in time to save the next victim?
