The Last Winter is a 2006 horror film directed by Larry Fessenden and starring Ron Perlman and James Le Gros.
KIK Corporation is attempting to dig for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. Environmentalist James Hoffman is on hand to make sure everything is on the up and up, much to the chagrin of drilling team leader Ed Pollack. With the schedule being grounded to halt due to an unusually warm winter and Hoffman's erring on the side of caution, Pollack's patience is wearing thin. With another team member showing signs of cabin fever and added drama of Hoffman sleeping with a former lover of Pollack's, tempers and tensions run high.
Is it all an unfortunate coincidence, perhaps hydrogen sulfide gas released from the permafrost, or is something much more sinister and super natural lurking in the harsh Alaska climate?
This film contains examples of:
- A House Divided
- Did Not Do the Research: This movie takes place in the The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge during winter. Meaning there should be little to no light during the day. Most of the films scenes take place during the day.
- Driven to Suicide: Almost played straight. The character was technically killed; however he DID disrobe to go out into the freezing winter night.
- Gaia's Vengeance
- Jerkass: Pollack and Hoffman.
- Mysterious Antarctica: Alaska this time, but pretty much played straight.
- Nightmare Fuel
- Space Whale Aesop
