Usually, horror filmmakers end up descending into the work-for-hire world of television direction after their career has waned a bit and the studios are no longer calling. In the case of Adam Green, he began in television, made his segue to the big screen, and used that clout to go back to television for the most popular work of his career.

This week we review "Hatchet II" director Adam Green's latest, "Frozen", and debate the finer points of Wolf sentience.

Winter. I think it’s a safe assumption that we’re all sick of it. The groundhog sacked up and braved his shadow so spring is on the horizon. Let’s not forget that we’re in the middle of February though. Sure, we’re seeing 50 degree temps in central Indiana but Mother Nature could turn around and slap us with another foot of snow at any moment and nobody would really be surprised.

The bleakness of winter is wearing us all down, so why not bolster that depression with 10 Winter Horror Flicks?

When the BGH Crew began discussing its nominations for its list of the top ten horror films of the year, one thing became rather obvious. While it's been a year filled with lots of quality horror films -- indeed, some might even say risky films -- there wasn't that one movie that broke away from the crowd to truly establish itself as the best.

Now that October has arrived, the time has come for horror fans to start queuing up their favorite films, putting up their Halloween decorations, and bundling up for the incoming cold. It's an exciting time of the year for sure, but once Halloween is over with, there are few seasonally-appropriate modern films that capture the bleakness of the upcoming winter months in the way that "The Shining" and "The Thing" both do so well.

Fans of director Adam Green have reason to be extra happy this morning. Anchor Bay has announced that they will release the ski slope shocker "Frozen" on DVD and Blu-ray this September. Although the premise sounds a little goofy, the film looks absolutely fantastic. Personally, I can't wait.

IFC will unleash director Stuart Hazeldine's psychological thriller "Exam" to VOD on July 23rd. The film in question looks like a peculiar mix of "Saw" and "Cube", with a bit of David Fincher thrown in for good measure. However, depending on who you are, this might not be a recipe for delicious cinematic success.

In order to get misshapen butts into theater seats, Dimension is promoting Piranha 3D with a series of posters featuring the several scantily-clad women on a boat. Isn't this supposed to be a horror movie? I know genre fans are unnaturally obsessed with naked women, but this just sad. And people wonder why I'm not overly excited about this one.

Remember that movie "Open Water" that came out a few years ago about the divers stuck in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sharks? "Hatchet" director Adam Green is probably hoping you don't because his new movie "Frozen" looks to be exactly the same idea, only with a chairlift over a desolate ski resort replacing the open sea and wolves standing in for the sharks. All cynicism aside, the real-life survival horror aspects of this could make this a fun "what would you do?" movie that will haunt skiers for years to come.

The official website for "Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy" has launched and is pretty impressive for "Elm Street" fans. Included are tons of behind the scenes photos, fan forums and more.

Adam Green sits down with Dread Central to answer questions on his upcoming feature "Frozen".

In an effort to prove that sometimes the little guys do win, casting has begun for "Cruel Logic". An expansion of director Godawa's short film of the same title, the movie follows a serial killer professor as he seeks revenge on his psychiatrist.
