The Thaw - Val Kilmer and co v ice age parasite in The Thing...I mean The Thaw

Quiet Earth spotted this one.

A deadly prehistoric parasite is released when a Woolly Mammoth is discovered in a melting ice cap. Faced with a potentially global epidemic, four ecology students must destroy the parasite before it reaches the rest of civilization. One-by-one they are infected and one-by-one they turn on each other. Soon the survivors are left with only one choice - to make the ultimate sacrifice and burn everything to the ground... including themselves.

Sounds a little like the dilemma the people had in John Carpenter's The Thing - plus lots of the visuals have a similar quality (which is no bad thing as long as it is done well. The Thaw stars Val Kilmer, Steph Song, and Kyle Schmid and is set to be released sometime this year.

Kilmer is so washed up, he looks like crap. I can't imagine what it was like to work with the guy at this point in his "career". I'm not familiar with the other actors but Kyle Schmid looks interestingly different in this movie but the trailer doesn't rock me. Yes, it really reminds me of "The Thing" (2nd one). I'm not optimistic this will be good but just the same I'd like to see it since I'm a Schmid fan.
