Remember that scary movie we told you about, the one where a group of rascally kids gets stuck on a chairlift, and then night falls and wolves start howling and terror surely ensues? Yeah, well, maybe we shouldn't have been so flippant about the whole thing. A German snowboarder got stranded on a chairlift in the Austrian Alps last weekend, and had to burn cash to stave off hypothermia.
We're no film critics -- we are mere ski bums moonlighting at a ski magazine -- but lately we've been hearing the snarky complaint that Hollywood has run out of ideas. Thus, the complainers say, the parade of remake after remake. (Clash of the Titans 2010, anyone?) So we were pretty psyched to hear about a new ski film due out next month -- a new ski horror film.
