Last Winter, The (2008)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Last Winter, The (2008) Larry Fessenden's latest is about a group up in Alaska who are at odds with each other. Ron Perlman wants to bring in his oil boring equipment but James Legros tells him that the permafrost is melting and it can't support all that weight and they won't be able to bring in the equipment. Perlman gets him fired, but in the meantime, while he's waiting for the plane back, one of the group members freaks out and walks out one night into the ice, naked. They find his body, eyes ripped out by ravens. There's also a videotape, as he had a camera with him, which shows that something else is indeed out there. The two Inuit workers talk about the Wendigo and thus ties this as a sort of sequel to Fessenden's previous WENDIGO.

There's a scene where a plane crashes into their building and people are running around on fire, but it's not the cheap CGIi fire, but real fire, and it has much more of an impact because it's convincing. The same goes for all the scenes with the ravens, particulary in the last scene when they are eating someone's dead body. Real birds, not CGI birds. The wendigo itself is CGI, though, and because it's so ethereal looking it works.

THE LAST WINTER is purposely vague, which increases the sense of unease you get while watching the movie. The ending reminded me of the ending for RESIDENT EVIL, as it amounted to the same thing...the end of the world.
