Opening this Friday, in limited release, is writer/director Adam Green’s Frozen.  The film is about three friends that get stranded on a ski lift on a Sunday night.  Since this particular park is closed on weekdays (it’s a New England thing), the friends are forced to make life-or-death decisions while freezing on the lift.  If you’re someone that’s afraid of ski lifts, Frozen will only add fuel to the fire.  The movie played at this year’s BNAT in Austin and at last week’s Sundance Film Festival to very enthusiastic crowds.  I saw a screening and thought it was great.  While the film is limited in locations, the real world aspect and the feeling that what you’re watching could actually happen will freak you out. Definitely recommended.

Anyhow, last week I got to speak with the man behind the movie, Adam Green, and we had an awesome conversation about not only his film, but why Hollywood is obsessed with remakes and what really goes on behind the scenes on a movie set.  Of course we also talked about making Frozen, what’s up with Hatchet 2 (which sounds awesome), and how he put in references to Papa Gino’s and Newbury Comics in Frozen.  If you’re not from the New England area, they’re very popular local franchises.   Hit the jump to check out the interview.  It’s a great one:

Adam Green

  • What does it mean being at Sundance
  • How much does he pay attention to what’s going on online.  Explains the benefits of the buzz and the problems
  • 3:20 – Talks about remakes and the horror fans
  • 4:30 – Explains what really is going on behind the scenes with remakes and directors
  • 6:20 – Talks about the Papa Gino’s and Newbury Comics references in Frozen
  • 7:05 – Is there a Dunkin Donuts reference in the movie
  • 8:30 – Hatchet 2 talk.  Says it’s ten times the movie compared to the first one.  First movie had 7 people die and the sequel has 16.
  • 9:45 – Says they can’t get an R.  Explains why.  It’s awesome.
