The movie is not about ghosts but about madness and the energies it sets loose in an isolated situation primed to magnify them.”
— Roger Ebert
Let’s talk about a movie in which the menacing main character is a danger to family members, whose volatility increases after a long isolation inside a giant, ornate, high-ceilinged building in a cold, desolate landscape. Perhaps the acquisition of a brand new leadership position set off an unraveling this character cannot control.
An innocent protagonist, touched by the supernatural, is locked out of a forbidden room inside a giant, ornate, high-ceilinged building in a cold, desolate landscape, and forced to play childlike games alone in its incongruously cavernous hallways.
“Light, of my life. I’m not gonna hurt ya…I’m just going to bash your brains in. I’m gonna bash ’em right the fuck in.”
In Hans’ final confrontation with Elsa he adopts the brutal tone of Grady in forcing Elsa to reckon with the real damage of which she’s capable.
Hans: You can’t run from this!
Elsa: Just take care of my sister…
Hans: Your sister? She returned from the mountain weak and cold. She said you froze her heart. I tried to save her, but it was too late. Her skin was ice. Her hair turned white…Your sister is dead… because of you.
It is also Hans who visits the locked-away Elsa before the culminating scene, in which her icy power closes in on Anna and Olaf. Moviescostume.com
