NO ONE KNOWS YOU’RE UP THERE.
One late evening, three friends (Emma Bell, Shawn Ashmore, Kevin Zegers) go for a last run at a New England ski resort, but are trapped in a chairlift high up in the air. Everybody who’s been in a chairlift has probably felt unease at some point and Hatchet (2006) director Adam Green cleverly captures that feeling in this thriller. He does what he can with a naturally limited concept and even throws in a pack of unusually bloodthirsty wolves… but some scenes are unintentionally comical and the characters remain uninspired.
2010-U.S. 93 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed by Adam Green. Cast: Emma Bell (Parker O’Neil), Shawn Ashmore (Joe Lynch), Kevin Zegers (Dan Walker), Ed Ackerman.
