Suspended Animation

Hollywood animator Tom (Alex McArthur) gets lost in the Michigan woods after a snowmobile ride goes wrong. He finds refuge at an isolated cabin inhabited by two sisters (Laura Esterman and Sage Allen). Initially grateful to them, Tom soon realizes that the women are cannibals who peg him as their next meal. Tom's friends manage to rescue him, but he's perpetually haunted by his horrific ordeal, which he eventually turns into a screenplay.

Since the movie's sensibility ranges from the preposterous to the absurd, there are few genuine frights.
Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News  full review
 
A sturdy, well-made piece that never quite overcomes its structural flaws.
Dave Kehr, New York Times  full review
 
It has pace and variety and, best of all, it consistently has the courage of its imaginative and daring screenplay.
Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Feels a lot like two different Hancock jobs stitched together.
Ellen Fox, Chicago Tribune  full review
 
Describing what's bad about this movie is like describing what's orange about an orange, but suffice it to say that the best performance is given by a crucified raccoon.
Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Alternately tense and cheesy, Suspended Animation returns its director, John Hancock, to the blood-soaked turf he spaded 30 years ago with his ageless nail-biter Let's Scare Jessica to Death.
Edward Crouse, Village Voice  full review
