    The film isn't very interesting because it isn't well made. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Succeeds royally at building a sense of apocalyptic dread. It isn't quite so successful at sustaining that mood, and Fessenden resorts to blurry images of totemic spirit forces and stampeding moose specters to get where he's going. And where exactly is that? To a place designed to scare the bejesus out of us planet-pillaging consumers. show more

    Among cautionary tales of gloom-and-doom, it may out-gore Gore, but it doesn't entertain. show more

    The Last Winter sounds like a genre-movie platypus - a little bit of this, a little piece of that - but it stops short of laying an egg. In fact, it works eerily well. show more

    Who said that an environmental horror film couldn't be didactic and spooky at the same time? show more

    Scott Foundas L.A. Weekly

    The Last Winter won’t win many fans among those who place the saving of union jobs above the repairing of the ozone layer. But this is a horror movie with many inconvenient truths to tell about the ways in which we are willingly destroying our planet. show more
