Move over deadly plants! The world is about to get a taste of a previously frozen nasty unleashed due to global climate change.

Such is the plot for the new Indie-horror movie The Thaw — which has just signed on actor Val Kilmer in the lead role. The film also stars Martha MacIsaac (Michael Cera’s high school flame in Superbad) as Kilmer’s daughter. So how does this all go down?

Well, apparently, a group of student-scientists stumble upon a thawing Woolly Mammoth in a melting ice cap. Unfortunately, the Mammorth is packing a deadly parasite that had laid dormant (and hungry we might add) for thousands of years. One-by-one, everyone becomes infected, all hell breaks loose, and well, you get the picture. According to the synopsis, “soon the survivors are left with only one choice – to make the ultimate sacrifice and burn everything to the ground… including themselves.” Toasty.

So, expect a happy ending.

Ed Note: Val, c’mon, I’m still waiting for The Saint II. Bring back the guy that played Boris, Elizabeth Shoe, and all the cool gadgets. Eco-parasites are cool and all, but it would be better to see you dress of up in 10 different disguises and screw with people. Thanks!
