In the early 1980′s, Robert Hansen terrorized Alaska. He murdered between 17 and 21 women prostitutes he picked up specifically for the purpose of playing a twisted and deadly game. After raping and torturing his victims to his satisfaction, he would fly them in his private jet into the Alaskan wilderness and let them go. Then, he’d hunt them like deer.
The Frozen Ground is a new film based on the hunt for Hansen, starring John Cusack as the killer, Nicholas Cage as the detective who took him down and Vanessa Hudgens as Cindy Paulson, a 17-year-old prostitute who narrowly escaped Hansen’s lethal grip. Cindy escaped as Hansen was about to load her into the plane, and, still handcuffed, ran to police.
