A trip home for Christmas through a desolate backwoods road ends in a disaster for two college students that are left stranded in the snow after surviving a horrible accident. As the pair soon finds out, the road has claimed many other victims in the past, victims whose ghostly remains continue to haunt the lonesome patch of highway. WIND CHILL is a beautifully shot and atmospheric ghost tale that uses cool blue filters, harsh weather conditions, and creepy shadow figures to create an overall unsettling mood. Emily Blunt and Ashton Holmes draw the audience in with a strong initial build, but unfortunately their momentum is lost after the hour mark as the script loses focus and dissolves into a muddled mess. Before this, however, it does create sufficient thrills, suspense, and tension through Holmes' dubious intentions and the understated spirits haunting the forest. Gregory Jacobs delivers another case of style over substance that offers enough chills to earn itself at least a single viewing.
