Lovecraftian Horror Film FREEZE Scored by Duncan Ritchie
From Dark Temple Motion Pictures comes FREEZE, the latest horror movie from director Charlie Steeds (THE BARGE PEOPLE). Starring Johnny Vivash, David Lenik, Ricardo Freitas, Jake Watkins, Rory Wilton, and Tim Cartwright, the Lovecraftian horror film follows a rescue mission to the North Pole, spearheaded by Captain Mortimer (Wilton) to retrieve an old friend and his lost expedition crew. But he gets more than he bargained for when his ship is frozen into the ice sheet and set upon by bloodthirsty fish-creatures. Mortimer and his surviving crew flee the ship, beginning a treacherous journey to find safety in a frozen desolate wilderness. Suffering from starvation, frostbite and a slow madness, they find shelter inside a snowy mountain, but… are they as safe as they think, or have they entered the heart of the creatures lair?
The film has been scored by photographer, digital artist, and musician Duncan Ritchie, known for scoring the horror film BLACK LAKE (2020), co-producing the talk-show TALKING THE ORVILLE (2022), and scoring the short film THE THING IN THE APARTMENT: CHAPTER II (2017; using his band name “Flowers for Bodysnatchers”).

“The arctic horror movie won the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival’s Best Film Award 2022, which gives it some legit Lovecraft cred,” writes John Squires in an article for the Bloody Disgusting website https://bloody-disgusting.com/movie/3740236/freeze-trailer-lovecraftian-fish-monster-movie-won-h-p-lovecraft-film-festivals-best-film/.
