When teenage prostitute Cindy Paulson (Vanessa Hudgens – Sucker Punch) is found by police officers – beaten and pleading for her life – in an Alaskan motel room, everyone is quick to dismiss her version of events. However, US state trooper Sgt. Jack Halcombe (Nicolas Cage – Bad Lieutenant), soon comes to believe that Cindy is the only surviving victim of a local serial killer, responsible for a series of murders of young women in the past decade. Lacking the support of his department, Halcombe must find Cindy, gain her trust and form an unlikely partnership in order to track down the man who still wants to kill her.
John Cusack’s (2012) portrayal of cold killer Robert C. Hansen is his most chilling performance yet, bringing the horrific true story alive to audiences. THE FROZEN GROUND is directed by Scott Walker and also stars global hip-hop legend Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
