‘Snow Falls’ (2023) Movie Review: A Horror Thriller with… Intents

A horror film about isolation that is a rather B Series thing or other.

Review

Total
5/10
Overall
5.0/10

Snow Falls is a horror film directed by Colton Tran starring Jonathan Bennett, Patrick Fabian and Victoria Moroles.

A low budget film about some young people isolated in a log cabin that is just a horror film about young people, evolves as that and behaves as that, simply along the lines of pre-established parameters.

It is up to scratch technically and rhythmically, but the script falls short.

Storyline

Some friends are trapped in a winter storm. With no electricity and barely any food, they will be prey to terror, paranoia and deep dread about the snow that surrounds them.

Review

Five young middle class (upper middle class) drinking shots of whiskey and enjoying their youth in a horror film. We have seen the pattern stated so many times in horror films that right from the beginning we feel a certain weariness in spite of the good presentation in the vein of The Shining. Admitting the plot and the clear topic it has, we find ourselves with the problem any genre faces: giving us that “extra” and having its “own voice”. Snow Falls, unfortunately, does not manage to take that step ahead that will make it stand out and in some way, make it “unforgettable”.

If it were a dating app, it would be… yes, okay but I wouldn´t go out twice with the date, in a movie that lacks the fascination that the characters should have, leading us correctly into the intrigue on a rhythmic level (this is done okay), but it crumbles in the vacuity (what a word) that it has in its initial statements.

It stands up for itself in the photography, the rhythm, not in the script of a genre that either surprises or fails.

Snow Falls does not triumph nor does it achieve that extra point it needs to surprise us in spite of the, admittedly, unstintint work of Colton Tran who stars and produces the movie.

Our Opinion

This is a horror film that is not at all hair-rising (a bad thing), which averages as a thriller and, does know how to set its pace and on a film level, behave. But we are afraid it will not convince the viewers.
