The fishermen quickly notice that the fish below the thick ice aren’t biting, and Ray thinks the Cotes’ state-of-the-art gear, including a loud ice drill, has scared them all away. But the two families’ petty squabbles are soon eclipsed by a much greater enemy: Something unnatural and ferocious is under the ice and its prey is human. Miles from civilization and with only a few inches separating them from the freezing water below, the Pelletiers and the Cotes must find a way to work together to fight the vicious creature that’s out to hunt them.
Directed by James Felix McKenney (Automatons, Canniballistic, Satan Hates You) and produced by the creators of new cult classics The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers and Stake Land, HYPOTHERMIA is as taut as a fishing line snagged by a barracuda. This modern spin on the classic monster movie features memorable performances from horror vet Rooker and co-stars Blanche Baker (Sixteen Candles, The Girl Next Door) and Greg Finley (“The Secret Life of the American Teenager“).
