Open Water on a Ski Lift
Before we get to the next trailer, and it’s a goddamn winner and a half, an admin note: Dan has set up a Facebook “Fan Page,” which is completely different and better in every sense, than the existing Pajiba Group we have set up (I don’t know why — just go with it). So, we’re starting all over, and hoping to move our 1,700 Group Members over to the “Fan Page,” so that we can better corral you all. In addition, sometime over the next few days, someone (either me or someone I can trick into doing it) will create on the new fan page one post that includes all the real names of the Pajiba commenters (or, at least those who have officially outed themselves on FB) so that you can match the commenter with their FB profile and befriend them (if they’ll have you). Who doesn’t want to know Sparkletit’s real name is or what Skittimus Maximus really looks like? Also, Tracer Bullet will verbally abuse you in a completely new forum! It’ll be awesome.
Now, onto the trailer: This one is for Frozen, which has got to be the most stupidly awesome premise since Open Water. What’s more terrifying than being stuck, alone, in the ocean surrounded by sharks? Being stuck for days in a ski lift, of course. It comes from Adam Green, who is also responsible for a short called TiVo, about a DVR that becomes obsessed and starts killing people (awe. some.)
How they manage to turn this into a full-length movie will be interesting to see, but the two-minute trailer might set the new bar for unintentional comedy for a horror movie. And the quote-whore blurbs just kind of clinch it for me. Dig on this:
