Consensus: The Last Winter creatively and effectively uses horror tactics -- fear, tension, anticipation, and just enough gore -- to shock, but never repulse, its audience.

John Monaghan
Detroit Free Press

Fessenden, who directed, produced, cowrote, edited and even has a part in the film rightly values mood at least as much as he does delivering more abominable snow monsters.

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

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's a pro-environmental apocalyptic shocker that works as a thinking man's ghost story pic.

Tom Long

The problem is that the ghostly culprit, some sort of nature spirit, isn't nearly as terrifying as the arguments that Pollack makes, or the fact that the ice in such places really is weakening.

The Last Winter's heart is in the right place, but it isn't pumping any blood.

Prairie Miller
Baret News

An eco-supernatural dreamscape companion piece to Al Gore's cautionary doc, An Incovenient Truth, and a thinking man's figurative and literal sub-Arctic chiller with a turbulent character-driven indie soul.

Owen Gleiberman
Entertainment Weekly

Die-hard greenies may find this as unsettling as it's meant to be. For everyone else, it's closer to an atmospheric act of recycling.

It works eerily well.

As such terror is harder and harder to articulate, the film is most effective when it abandons dialogue and leaves the camera to do its very spooky work.

Supernatural horror with an in-your-face environmental message at its heart. It's all about a crew of oil workers camped in the snowy Alaskan landscape who… More

Somewhat effective thriller, somewhat slow drama and somewhat comparable to 'The Happening'. Not bad but not developed enough to be really good.… More

Great performances, cold eerie atmosphere, and chilling story. This movie is pretty creepy, and although slowly paced, it's still spooky.

An odd film. Hints of an interesting premise but it never completely congeals. Decent performances across the board.
