Decent enough for what it was.

"Most of the opinions on this movie are mixed, either it's a ***** classic or a * DUD. The truth is it's just a solid little movie that doesn't really stand out either way.A group of mismatched travellers are snowed-in in the Rocky Mountains. An officer (Adam Beach) stumbles across a bloody room and two of the hotel customers are missing. Since no one can come or go, he reasons that one of the travellers is the killer. The film scuttles along from there as most of these films do.The characters are mostly irritating stereo-types - the black trucker with a shady past who's set his life straight, two redneck brothers, a bimbo, and a sleazy guy who would play Chuck Woolery's evil twin if they starred in a soap opera. Also along for the ride is Rose McGowan as a woman who's just passing through -- or is she? A poor-but-honest hotel keeper -- or is he? And a kid who is autistic -- or is he? Okay. He is.The one thing that keeps me from rating this higher is some of the dialogue. One-liners fall flat time after time and as the villain is trying to escape in a Snow-Cat he keeps delivering corny phrases apparently to keep himself amused. I hate that!If you thought Joyride and Jeepers Creepers were ***** affairs this might be a good movie for you, but if you're looking for nuanced examples of characters clashing against one another pick up Hitchcock's Lifeboat instead.Mildly recommended."
A great film with suspense and excitement.

"This movie was a real treat for me. Rose McGowan is my favourite actress of all time. She plays a great part in this movie as Nancy. Adam Beach also plays a good part here. The movie focuses on the dead of winter. It is freezing cold outside and everyone is becoming agressive. It doesn't help that their is a lunatic going about killing people. I reccomend this movie to anyone who likes suspence and light horror."
Who Is The Real Killer?

"Movie was great. Kept you guessing who was the killer amongst the people stranded in the mountain storm. Family loved it. We watch it when family come over. Enjoy Native American actors (Adam Beach)."
