Review by Jarred Thomas

Prior to Christmas break, a young woman Emily Blunt (listed in credits simply as "girl") accepts the idea from a cell phone texting session to use the campus "Ride Share" program as an alternative to riding the bus back home to Delaware. Finding a posting on a bulletin board, she catches a ride home from a stranger, Ashton Holmes

REVIEW:

Thereís a lot that could have worked here and unfortunately Wind Chill falls victim to the clichťd horror formula that has plagued the cinema since the first Friday the 13th film. Well, itsí not quite on that level, in fact, itís actually better than the film just mentioned but it certainly could have been on par with the Shinning.

The failure with Wind Chill is that it doesnít quite seem to know where to go with its own original idea.

The idea of the ghost story on the road is intriguing. The Hitcher was great because it took a road trip and blended it with the horror theme while evoking psychological twists. Itís a film that succeeded in its original idea and never lost track.

The first half of Wind Chill creates a compelling and psychological feel to it that keeps you captivated throughout. The performances, particularly from Emily Blunt who always does a nice job with the roles sheís given does fine here as a student looking to travel from college to home, but in need of a ride.

Her savior comes from a fellow college student with a car offering her a much needed ride. They never exchange names, so throughout the film weíre never told you they are. Thatís fine.

While traveling together, the two strike a few awkward conversations with the boy giving away bits of information that leaves the girl feeling uneasy around him. He seems to know certain details about her life, which raises the question: who is he?

Turns out that the guy is more than he seems and is actually an admirer of hers whose been watching her while in class. He then takes a detour off road and when their car gets run off the road by another car on scenic Route 606, she becomes suspicious this was all planned.

However she soon realizes her strange companion is the least of her worries. As the temperature drops to 30 degrees below zero, ghostly figures begin appearing in the woods where ghastly events had unfolded in the 1950s. Itís at this point where the novelty wears off and we find ourselves in familiar territory.

Wind Chill is not a bad film. The car scenes are well done with some engaging dialogue that gradually builds suspense overtime. Itís evokes the psychological component that works well and proved more effective than the later ghost horror theme that appears towards the end. Itís that supernatural element that actually hurts the film and takes you out entirely making the rather enjoyable experience in the beginning moot. Wind Chill is a film that could have been more but settle for less.
