A small group of explorers was mapping out a new area that has been discovered in 1996 this area has been too cold to explore for the past few years but now the ice storms have stopped and it has become a warmer environment. Exactly 5 miles away from the nearest city is a city that seems like it has been in the snow storms for years now.
The group ran back and got help and reporters, this town became populated quickly but there are questions that haven’t been answered.” What happened to all of the people and how do we get into the buildings?” said one of the reporters. They began walking through the town looking at the buildings that had huge icicles hanging from the roofs and ledges.
The group moved on as one of the teams of reporters went off to another part of the town; the camera man came around the corner and immediately dropped the camera. The sight that has stunned this man was of people stabbed up against the walls with icicles, the eyes of these people have been plucked out by either the killer or birds. The blood has grouped up in the ice that is going down the whole wall.
The news crew was sickened by this so they ran back to the group leaving the camera and bringing them back to the wall, but when they returned to the wall the bodies where gone but the camera was still there recording live. The camera man picks up the camera again as the reporter begins announcing “we have witnessed something of great terror tod…” she is interrupted by her cell phone. Her boss was on the other end of the call. He said “what is going on down there! We saw something on the wall but now it is gone.” The reporter whispered into the phone “there were bodies hung on the walls.” He exclaims back “there was something on the roof moving! Get him to pan back to it now!” she points to the area when he said he saw something. The camera didn’t show anything this time but there was something there before something moved those bodies away.
They began the tour again trying to forget about what the others claimed that they saw. Suddenly they begin walking into thick fog and snow, some of the reporters began to wonder where they were going. The back of the team was rather quiet but they should be okay.
One of the camera men was filming this blizzard but suddenly the film cuts off. He begins to try to fix it but a freezing cold hand grabs his mouth and muffles his screams. The main reporter looks back and sees a white cloaked figure holding the camera man’s face. The figure digs its fingers into his throat ripping it opens then dragging him into the fog. The head reporter runs after him screaming the rest following.
The trail disappears as do the screams for help the only thing they can hear is the never ending cry of the wind. The group has had enough of this and they all start walking back. The only thing is that the storm has covered they’re tracks, so they all start wondering through the town, as the storm began to progress. They find a building that has glass windows covered in blood but still cracked. The reporter hits the camera from her fallen camera man against the glass, causing it to shatter.
She signals for the rest of the team to come into the building, they all move in and look at the powered down room. It seems to be an office of some sort an old office at that all of the pictures where black and white and all of the papers are out of date. As they are in here they begin to fix they’re cameras and equipment. As they are doing that the reporter realizes that he phone has no signal now “Great!” the reporter exclaimed as she put her phone away, the camera begins recording live again.
They walk through the building walking to the next floor then looking out the window at the frozen city. Something can be heard clanking down the hall way as if it is walking to them. They quickly arm themselves with office supplies that could damage the foe. The sound gets closer and closer until something darts in front of the door. They all throw stuff at it but instantly realize that it was just a snow fox. As they look at the fox something drops down to the window behind them breaking it and grabbing the tech producer and pulling him down to the ground with him. They all turned around and saw a small mist of blood as there tech manager disasapeared with the same white cloaked figure from earlier.
They all run back to the floor they came in through and ran to where the body would have landed, but there was nothing there, not even a print in the snow. They all look scared as they begin running to where they think the exit to the town is. The reporter looks back quickly and see’s the tall white cloaked figure this time she could see it’s, frost bitten, non-eyed face. She ran faster knowing that if her co reporter goes down she is dead meat. They come around a corner and see there camera man and they’re tech manager with their stomachs and necks ripped open and their eyes ripped out of their skulls.
The camera is getting all of this fear and sending it live to the news station. People are throwing up and running out of the news station. The co reporter looks back with the camera and sees the figure again this time it was screaming at them and holding a large icicle. The reporter saw this and ran as fast as she could knowing that this creature was getting closer to her. They come around another corner with even more bodies hung by knifes and icicles but this time there was writing in blood on the wall saying “fear the cold!” They do their best to ignore this as they run faster trying to get back to the news van.
The co reporter looks back wondering if it was still after them, the creature has disappeared for now but they continue running wanting to get out of this place. They continue to watch the roof tops and the corners for this fearful figure. They spot it on the roof top in front of them so they turn another corner trying to avoid it. Even though they think they are escaping its grasp it is just guiding them farther away from the van making them go the complete opposite way. When they start to get closer to the towns square the figure disappears.
The main reporter runs back the way they came wondering it is clear, but when she comes around that corner the frost bitten monster jumps down and rips her eyes out with a shard of glass making her death as painful as he can make it be. The co reporter runs over to the beast and tries to kick him but his leg is immediately grabbed and thrown to the side and it continues stabbing the helpless victim’s throat.
The co reporter grabs the camera and charges at the murderer but is stopped again by it, but this time the beast breaks the man’s arm with its bare hands. He falls to the ground in pure pain feeling helpless he begins retreating but the camera is on the ground partially recoding this torture. The white hooded figure seems to want to drag out his death longer so it climbs the building wanting to hunt him like an animal. The man grabs the camera and begins running to the vehicle once again with a small ounce of hope. While he is running he puts the camera so it can show his face as he says “if I don’t make this I want to say that I love my wife and kids, you all will make it without me and I will see you all soon.” He continues running but suddenly an icicle is driven through his back and sticks out of his rib cage nearly piercing his heart.
The creature whispers in his ear “fear the cold.” He repeats it till the poor reporter bleeds to death. Blood dripping on the camera’s lens showing his slow painful death to everyone in the new station. This camera remained on till the snow covered it and caused it to shut off. But before this camera shut off a message flashed on the screens of the station saying “do not enter my town unless you want this same fate and remember fear the cold.”
