    The Thing. One of my favorites. Truly captures the icy desolate feel of snow and despair.

    The Thing, without a question. The cold creeps in to each scene and the feelings of isolation are dire to say the least. The ending shots of them walking through the empty base are without a creature and without music, it's just empty...

    Definitely The Shining... the feeling of isolation creates the perfect atmosphere of dread.
    Runner up was The Thing but I have to admit...
    I just watched Frozen last night and it gives The Thing a run for its money.
    Damn... Frozen is a great film. Its so tightly crafted and perfectly paced, not to mention genuinely terrifying by making you truly fear for the characters. For a 90+ minute movie that takes place almost exclusively (except for the introductin) in a single, cramped ski-lift, this movie feel quite short... and thats a testament to its quality. Other films, such as Open Water, can feel like 3 hour snooze fests in comparison.

    I have to go with The Gremlins, it's not Christmas without popping in that DVD. It's that perfect movie that is still creepy but you don't feel like a bad person for letting the kids watch it.
     
  7. I gotta go with The Thing. Such a classic movie. Runner's-up are Black Christmas (original of course) and The Shining.

    I'd have to go with Black Christmas and The Thing. I don't know how Black Christmas manages to seem homey and fun at the same time being bleak and creepy, but what an awesome flick!

    The Thing is the best movie you could ever imagine for a stormy winter's night, stuck inside and isolated.

    Within the last year or so, I've seen (for the first time) Cold Prey, Dead Snow, and Frozen. I enjoyed them all, but Frozen was excellent.

    Oh, I also saw Whiteout (with Kate Beckinsale). That one was merely okay.

    For my fave, I'm going to vote for The Thing. Not the '80s version, but the original Howard Hawks version from the '50s! None of these other movies have anything as perfectly haunting and spine-tingling as the scene of the people spreading out on the ice around the buried object to discover that it's perfectly round. Gets me every time (even in Halloween!).

    Keep watching the skies!

    Once upon a time The Shining took that spot easily but after this year's Fantastic Fest I'm gonna have to say I've got a new favorite: Rare Exports!

    What an absolute blast that movie is. I can't wait for the DVD to come out so I can force EVERYONE I know to watch it :)


    (The Thing (1982), while my favorite movie of all time, is not a winter film to me... it's snowy in Antarctica all the time. Even though the film does indeed take place during "the first goddamn week of winter")

    As usual it's hard to pick a number one but I'll go with the remake of The Thing.
