I watched the 2013 Lionsgate Docu-thriller The Frozen Ground on Netflix DVD. It is a Scott Walker film, who both wrote and directed the movie, which was his first. It is a factual based account of the Alaskan State Patrol hunting down a serial killer with the help of the only known victim to have gotten away. The Frozen Ground takes place in and around Anchorage Alaska in 1983. The movie is produced by Curtis Jackson (50 Cent – 13, Setup, Freelancers, Escape Plan movies, The Prince, Spy, Den of Thieves) who also is the pimp in the film.
