First Look At ‘Hypothermia’ Creature In Trailer Premiere!

A family returns to their favorite winter getaway for some peaceful ice fishing little suspecting that they are about to become bait for a hideous underwater creature in Hypothermia, a bloody and bone-chilling shocker coming to DVD from genre specialists Dark Sky Films on October 2, 2012.

Ray Pelletier (Michael Rooker; “The Walking Dead,” Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Slither) is looking forward to a quiet weekend of ice fishing with his family at the same peaceful lake they’ve been visiting for years. Unfortunately for the Pelletiers, the obnoxious big-city father-son duo of Steve and Stevie Cote has picked the same weekend to spend at the remote frozen spot.

The fishermen quickly notice that the fish below the thick ice aren’t biting, and Ray thinks the Cotes’ state-of-the-art gear, including a loud ice drill, has scared them all away. But the two families’ petty squabbles are soon eclipsed by a much greater enemy: Something unnatural and ferocious is 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 the Cotes must find a way to work together to fight the vicious creature that’s out to hunt them.

Directed by James Felix McKenney (Automatons, Canniballistic, Satan Hates You) and produced by the creators of new cult classics The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers and Stake Land, Hypothermia is as taut as a fishing line snagged by a barracuda. This modern spin on the classic monster movie features memorable performances from horror vet Rooker and co-stars Blanche Baker (Sixteen Candles, The Girl Next Door) and Greg Finley (The Secret Life of the American Teenager).

    this looks like a lot a fun and looks good EXCEPT for that last shot of the/a creature. that looks fucking stupid but everything else in this looks pretty good!

    I agree exactly.


    damn! actually seeing the creature killed my hopes

  • EvilHead1981

    Movie doesn’t look that bad. The creature looks hokey, but the majority of the film actually looks rather decent. If the acting and characters are good, I could let the goofy looking monster slide. I love the poster. THAT looks old school, like it could be some VHS cover you’d see while strolling down the aisle of the horror section at video store in the 80s. It’s badass!

    “First look”? This is an old trailer, at least 6 months. And the creature at the end ruins the bulk of the trailer.

  • m-m-m-MONSTER_KILL

    I agree with everyone about the monster at the end of the trailer, it looks pretty cheezy. Other than that though, this looms pretty solid, and I fucking LOVE that poster! A lot of indie horror flicks these days try to go for an “old-school” looking poster, but like EvilHead up there said, THAT is old-school.

  • I don’t mind the monster, this looks great and I can’t wait to see it. I’ve seen waaay worse monsters in very good films. That poster is exciting.

  • GunsOfNavarone

    The monster at the end looked like the creature from the end of Leviathan although a much worse version. It’s a shame they ruin a good concept with shitty effects.

    The movie itself looks okay-ish, but that poster is BAD ASS!
