      Steve D Ineffective slasher with little going on. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Worth watching for the ice skating scene. Everything else was just ‘meh’. And the killer reveal at the end — seems like they just decided on one and said ‘Its you’ Rated 2 out of 5 stars 12/10/22 Full Review edward b Really well shot movie and some clever dialogue, good script and well acted by the cast in this different type of slasher, was a little disappointed by the final scenes and killer motive reveal but all in all a good and better than average 80s slasher film 3/5 Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review jonathan m Not a bad movie a little bit slow a little bit well confusing but pointless at parts. Spoiler alert or just plot really. An Actress and her husband are making a movie.... the movie is about a psychiatric patient in order to get the full experience as a psychiatric patient and pr for when the movie is made she decides to fake/ bamboozle her way into the psychiatric hospital with the help of her husband to do some research, and to find out what it's really like..... anyhow she fakes a psychotic breakdown and gets committed but instead of doing research she ends up going crazy for real. Her husband desires to recast when his wife loses her mind, he invites some actresses who want a big brake to his snow house in the mountains to see who he will give the part too by living with them all for a bit ..... crazy wife escapes crazy wife jeloues...... I promise I didn't give any of this away..... see all in 20nmins still Creppy though ..... but it's simple like a long episode of Murder She Wrote that is scary and gory Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty damn unique slasher film. It's lots of fun, with a couple unexpected twists. Some really memorable imagery too. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/04/19 Full Review Audience Member Has a couple of really unexpected twists. That coupled with how the film was put together earns this one a recommendation. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Paul Lê Bloody Disgusting The acting talent is stellar for this kind of movie. Rated: 4/5 Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Paul Freitag-Fey Daily Grindhouse Has some amazing moments even it doesn't add up to much, and there is a reason that scenes like a murder on ice have become more iconic than the film itself. Aug 2, 2019 Full Review C.H. Newell Father Son Holy Gore This film has much to say about the plight of actresses, continually blurring the lines between reality and fiction, as well as character and identity. Rated: 4/5 May 1, 2019 Full Review Tim Brayton Antagony & Ecstasy One of the tiny handful of genuinely unique one-offs in the slasher genre's history. Rated: 7/10 Dec 5, 2016 Full Review Brian Orndorf It's a mess, but an entertaining one thanks to Ciupka's visual ambition and ensemble work from the oddball cast, who deliver the proper level of hysteria to assist what little suspense remains. Rated: B- Sep 27, 2014 Full Review Paul Chambers Movie Chambers On the positive side, there's Vernon and Eggar even being in the film. I enjoy these veteran actors and wish they had more to do. You can also argue the killer's mask is pretty scary. And, at least, the ice skating murder is original. Rated: C Jul 31, 2014 Full Review Read all reviews
