In Adam Green's FROZEN, three young skiers get stuck high above the ground on a ski lift and must figure out a way to save themselves before Mother Nature wields her icy breath. Green's film HATCHET, as well as his yearly Halloween shorts, have put the director at the forefront of young, notable horror directors working today. Now he's back at this year's Sundance, premiering his latest film.

But FROZEN isn't as much a horror film as it is a survival drama. It begs the question "What would you do if you found yourself in this live or die situation?"

Better yet, what would the film's actors, Shawn Ashmore (X-MEN), Kevin Zegers (DAWN OF THE DEAD), and Emma Bell (GRACIE) do if they found themselves really in this situation? Find that out, and more about the grueling production of FROZEN, in our interview with the writer/director and cast. Luckily, it did not take place on a ski lift...

And for you HATCHET fans, Green lets us in on a secret from the upcoming sequel to the film. Let's see if any of you Gordon and the Whalers can decipher the ambiguous morsel of information he gave us.

Who spotted the cameo by friend Scott Weinberg of Cinematical, who thought it funny to drop in unexpectedly to say "Hi"? Oh, that Weinberg!
