Consensus: Wind Chill is a ghost story with a clunky and unpolished script that fails to keep viewers in suspense.

Lou Lumenick
New York Post

Almost always, you can expect the worst when a studio dumps a film without advance screenings. But the well-crafted thriller Wind Chill, with rising star Emily Blunt, is the very rare case where somebody (in this case, Sony) goofed.

A moody, spooky tale, rendered with laudable economy.

Reel Film Reviews

...a refreshingly adult horror effort that boasts a pair of phenomenal lead performances.

Well before day breaks, it's the movie's plot (which would have made for an outstanding Outer Limits episode) that has come to seem stuck in an endless loop.

Imagine a campfire story told by Jack London after downing a bottle of Jack Daniels. The chilly atmosphere would be in full force but the plotting might be a bit punch drunk.

Wind Chill, for all its flaws, is an often spooky and imaginative ghost story that contains a genuine creepiness.

Colin Covert

Elevates familiar fright motifs to levels of shivery dismay.

Would have made an excellent short story a'la Twilight Zone, but as a feature film it was stretched a little too thin to be really powerful.

The ending was pretty sad. This movie was good. Not scary though.
