DVD review | Blood Glacier | This blood curling mutant creature feature puts a crazy new spin on The Thing

BLOOD_GLACIER_DVDSplicing its way onto DVD this week comes the blood chilling Austrian creature feature Blood Glacier from Rammstock director Marvin Kren which pays homage to John Carpenter’s cult sci-fi The Thing.

Working in a remote outpost of the German Alps, technician Janek and a cohort of scientists are stunned to discover a bleeding blood glacier parked high up in the mountain range. As the gory infected berg melts the blood, attracts the local wildlife only to transform them into hellish hybrids and monstrous mutations.

As this fusion of nightmarish creatures evolves in the life-giving mountain air, a second group including Janek’s ex-girlfriend advance towards the base in what will become a showdown of humans vs. nature upended into giant wood lice, beetle-foxes, crossbreed flying predators and much, much worse.
