What Are You Doing This Weekend?

My hope is that your answer to that question is "Supporting original horror, of course!"

I hate to beat a dead horse and tell you once more to go out and support Frozen this weekend, but it's becoming pretty damn clear by the reviews that there'd be no better way to spend your weekend. I'm not just talking reviews from horror sites like Bloody Disgusting and Dread Central, i'm talking incredibly positive reviews from mainstream media the likes of Rex Reed, Richard Roeper, Gene Shalit, and The New York Times(!). This kind of positivity for a horror movie from mainstream media outlets is very uncommon and it's looking like Adam Green is set to win us all over this weekend - both Hatchet fans and non Hatchet fans alike. Lest you have any doubts about this, here's just a little taste at what some people, people with highly respectable thoughts on movies, are saying about Frozen....

"Frozen delivers as an entertaining, suspense-filled, sometimes wonderfully grotesque little scarefest." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times

"Calm and jaded as I am, I was left so paralyzed with terror by this movie that I chewed a whole pencil in half watching it." - Rex Reed - The New York Observer

"A minimalist setup delivers maximum fright in “Frozen,” a nifty little chiller that balances its cold terrain with an unexpectedly warm heart." - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times

If you're in any of the following states listed below, there's a good chance you'll be able to get Frozen this weekend, so head on over to Ariescope and check the full theatrical listings for the theatre closest to you.

California
Colorado
Connecticut
Delaware
Illinois
Massachusetts
Minnesota
New Jersey
New York
Pennsylvania
Texas
Utah


If it's not playing near you, call up your theatre and demand it! Although given the incredible reviews and buzz thus far, i'd bet we'll be seeing Frozen get a wide theatrical release real soon.

As for me, my tickets are already purchased and i'll return either tonight or tommorow with my thoughts.

Stoked to catch this. Chris and I are hitting a Saturday matinee. A friend of mine that skis is refusing togo becuase he's a stupid weak baby.

I'm a snowboarder and that makes me even more excited to see the movie!

On some rare occations like today, I miss living in California. It is not playing anywhere near me. I was looking for something to do while husband was playing poker/watching super boring (bowl) on Sunday. Lonely Bones it is then. Sad, very sad. :(

Cheers!

I would go out and see this (even though I didn't like Hatchet), but sadly I live in SC so there's next to no chance it will come here.

Im glad to see so much positive support getting behind the film! Getting in to the limited screenings is tough with the kid, but if it does make the theatrical release I will be doing my best to support it!
