Tom (Aaron Kjenaas), his girlfriend Jeannie (Dawn Laurrie), his sister Karen (Connie Snyder), her boyfriend Chris (David Fields), and their friends Ron (Jim Cagle) and Lissa (Eve Montgomery) are on a snowmobile trip in the wintery mountains of Wisconsin when Tom and Chris, in an apparent attempt to prove themselves alpha male, decide to have a race - which ends in a nasty accident giving Tom a concussion and some very nasty bruises and putting him in what appears to be a coma. As there's no one around for miles, our heroes take abode in an abandoned building that appears to have one day been a religious holiday camp but is now ... a bit creepy. And while the others take care of Tom, Ron volunteers to drive to the next town to get some help. Once they've taken care of Tom, the girls find some kind of ouija-like witchboard and decide to try it, just to pass the time - but it seems the board does have some occult powers, as it brings Tom out of his coma and sees to it that Ron has a lethal accident - unbeknowest to the others of course.

Lissa walks off in the building on her own and finds out some stuff, like that the camp was secretly also the base for a group of Satanists, and that a bunch of murders happened on the premises. She doesn't get to tell it to the others anymore, as she's met with a nasty accident that somehow had to do with Tom. And while Tom and Jeannie have sex to celebrate his speedy recovery, Chris and Karen die rather nastily as well. And when Jeannie realizes they're all dead and she's alone at the camp with Tom, who might not be the Tom she knew and fell in love with anymore, it might already be too late ...


To say that The Chill Factor re-invents the horror genre single-handedly would be nothing short of a gross exaggeration, as this is a movie that sticks to genre mainstays and conventions rather rigidly and in fact seems to be a rather typical product of its time - and that's fun, too, actually, as while The Chill Factor might not be wholly original, it's well-made, atmospheric, invests some imagination into its death scenes, and moves along at a brisk pace. It might be no masterpiece, but it's just the right spooker coming down nostalgia avenue to relax to after a long day of work for some welcome chills, bits of tension and jump scares.
