Please Don't Shoot The Writer or Not This One.

"As much as it pains me to reveal the truth, I wrote the original script for Ice Queen. Not much remains. Actually, only the opening scene where the military convoy gets attacked and the concept of the airplane crashing into a mountain side and causing an avalanche to cover the ski resort are mine. The rest, blame the producer and director.
This film started life as "Avalanche Run" which was a sort of Romeo and Juliet on skis story. Two rival gangs, the poor but proud locals and the rich, snotty guests, face off over the love of a local girl who found fame in the big city. There were three (or was that four) production companies involved. Somewhere along the line one of the suits got the idea that the film needed a virus. So that's where the convoy and plane crash came in as a group of...I wasn't allowed to call them terrorists....steal an experimental virus, crash into the lodge, and so we get that as the ticking time bomb. The rival gangs must work together to escape before the crushing weight of the snow brings down the lodge on their heads and crushes the vials of virus, releasing it and wiping out every living thing for miles around. Then, apparently 2 weeks prior to production, another suit said that either the film got a monster or they were pulling out. Apparently the producer and director, rather than contacting me, put their own writing skills (sic) to use and rewrote 95% of my script. The result...well, read the reviews.
Oh, and for a look at what happens when a script of mine gets produced right - look for Prison of the Psychotic Damned, coming October 2006."
A cherry Icee is more fun

"The only redeeming value is the Pamela Anderson look alike. Her implants have to be the perkiest two things this side of the Swiss Alps.
A movie loaded with loop holes and bad acting, it is propelled by it's dull awfulness. Only the pamela type girl has any acting sense."
It's a Cult Classic and I'm in it!

"This is a cheesy, schlocky, wonderfully campy bad horror flick. I was lucky enough to be in this classic (Uncle Ed). tHe Edgewood crew and Dave G and Neil were great. The rest of the cast were fun. Harmon is the Man. Let's do Ice Queen 2 The Bitch is Back."

"Terrifying film that mixes the clostraphoic feel of THE DECENT with the fear factor of "Dawn of the Dead". You won't want to watch this one alone. Spent most of the night checking my windows and doors to ensure they were locked. Made my cats stay inside the rest of the night. I kept dreaming the Ice Queen was waiting for me in my driveway, next to a snow drift. The only other film that gave me nightmares after seeing it was "Jaws". This film does for snow boarding what "Jaws" did for swimming. Not for the faint of heart. The Ice Queen moves in such a terrifying way that "28 Days Later" looks like a high school production of "Pippin" next to this film."
