The second movie, which I have yet to see but will likely blind buy in a heartbeat, is Green's latest opus, Frozen. Billed as minimalist survival horror, a genre I love to death with other greats like Open Water, Trigger Man, and El Rey de la Montana, it centers on a threesome of snowboarders making a last night run down the slope who end up trapped on the ski-lift. Before you jump to the conclusion that that's a stupid premise, you really ought to watch the trailer, which looks to be intense, gripping, brutal, and altogether awesome. Due out on blu-ray and DVD on September 28th.
Green is definitely a director to watch, and may give other American shock directors a run for their money. I'm more hyped on work by the likes of him and Ti West and Larry Fessenden right now than I think I ever was over the work of Eli Roth (an admitted master of his craft, but his ego rubs me the wrong way) or others in his camp like James Gunn. There's a lot to like in the indie horror scene in the states right now, almost enough to give the French an actual contest for the kings of modern horror..
