Well met, HMN fans -
Happy spring! The weather is finally starting to warm up. Hence in true HMN fashion, we want to take you skiing with 1988’s “Iced”!
This ski slope slasher begins with a group of smarmy kids gathered at a ski resort for fun, skiing, and sex. Two of the knucklehead bros decide to have a ski race at night to win the affections of a girl. Sounds logical. Unfortunately, one of the two bros meets with an unpleasant fate, but not before vowing revenge on, well — everybody. Four years later (this movie spans nine years total — take that, Boyhood!), the same group is mysteriously invited to the opening of new ski resort, and are offered deluxe accommodations in a spacious lodge. Fun, skiing, and sex commence once again. However, they are soon violently dispatched one at a time by a ski-masked killer. The remaining kids desperately try to stay alive and figure out the identity of the killer. Could it be the ghost of their dead friend? And can they get a refund for their lift tickets?
“Iced” is so much damned fun. The kills are bloody, the dialogue is cheesy, and the nudity is nudey. Ever want to see a naked guy do coke? “Iced” has got you, bro. The movie is also a cautionary tale about teasing friends with mental illnesses. It’s just not a good idea! One of the movie’s stars is Lisa Loring, the original Wednesday Addams on “The Addams Family”. Even Morticia would be aghast at this character’s poor hot tub etiquette. It’s double black diamond entertainment. Here's a spoilerific bunch of clips (don't watch if you want the kills to be a surprise):
