D&D 5E Icewind Dale Films for Inspiration

So having recently read the book Alive about getting stranded in the Andes, and having watched The Thing tonight my Icewind Dale blood is thawing nicely.

What other films, TV shows or books would you recommend to get a person into the Icewind Dale mood? Particularly in the thriller/horror vein?

If anyone recommends Frozen, Ice Age or Happy Feet they’re getting blocked 😂😂😂


[Edit] So far

Alive
The Thing
The Day After Tomorrow
Empire Strikes Back
30 Days of Night
Pitch Black
Cliff Hanger
Call of the Wild
Alien v Predator
Everest
The revenant
The Grey
The Road
Game of Thrones
Shackleton
X-Files (Episode Ice)
Frozen 2 (under duress)
The Terror
1 Hour Photo

Ahah. I’m actually watching that one now. In a world affected by a supernatural winter, it actually seems pretty reasonable. I particularly like the build up.

If you're going to be running Rime of the Frostmaiden specifically, then Pitch Black might be appropriate. Really play up the darkness element of the setting.

What was that mountain climber movie with Stallone? He was some sort of alpine guide/rescuer.

Call of the Wild might have more old-school feel with survival, even the Disney other sled dog movies are good. You could even stretch the AvP movie with a secret aliens base under Antarctica with the Predator people hunting them. I also recall a cool WW2 escape movie where some people are in Siberia and escape and need to walk to India to be rescued.

Not a film, but the episode from the first season of The X-Files called "Ice," in which Mulder and Scully discover parasitic ice worms in an arctic research lab in Alaska that take over the host bodies.

1-Huor Photo with Robin Williams had some good stuff on insomnia with the 24hour darkness of the far north. Actually, that movie was about 24hour light instead. Both could be problems in Icewind Dale
