The B List - Movies to Freeze the Blood

In honor of how freezing cold it is outside I decided put together a list of some of my favorite winter movies. So, snuggle up under a blanket and check these out:

Ravenous (1999)
A chilly cannibal tale that takes place during the Mid-Nineteenth Century in the Sierra Nevada mountains. Guy Pierce stars as a dishonored soldier who shows up at the fort just in time to fight a stranger hellbent on killing and eating everyone . This dark comedy that is one of my favorites,

John Carpenter's The Thing (1982)
Taking place in Antarctica, John Carpenter's The Thing is a brilliant Sci-fi/horror where anyone could be the monster. From beginning to end, this film is a suspense thrill ride that is full of surprises.

Groundhog Day (1993)
Some argue that this film is not sci-fi, but Bill Murray's "stuck in time" antics are both unexplained and hilarious. One of my favorite comedies of all time has everything you need to weather any blizzard.

Lady Snowblood (1973)
Taking place during Japan's Meiji era, Lady Snowblood tells the tale of a child born to revenge her family's murders. A classic revenge movie that influenced Kill Bill and others.


The Shining
The Empire Strikes Back
