Chandler, the creator of the Gemini device in the Arctic lab, is kept well hidden by his staff. His psychological arguments are conducted through an audio speaker system wired throughout the underground lab, and his voice leads Dr. Paul Thorson back to the entry room. Corporal Gordon reminds him that if they don't get inside the inner room, "there won't be a world". Paul screams there has never been a problem he can't solve. It turns out that Chandler is individually telling each of the four people what they want to hear, just to keep Paul from getting inside. Corporal Gordon is armed with an ax when Paul takes aim with his gun. Written by Dorkinbrooke

The Big Freeze
24 April 2015 | by kapelusznik18See all my reviews

***SPOILERS*** With communications mysteriously cut off from the US military top secret research base in Northern Alaska the top physicist of the super secret Gemini Project Dr.Paul Thorson, Sean Patrick, is flown in by helicopter to investigate. It soon becomes apparent that the survivors of the base camp, the others just walked outside into the freezing -40 below temperature and froze to death, seemed to have lost their minds. There's Cpl.Gordon, Gordon Michael Woolvett, who keeps banging at the locked tight security door, where the Gemini Proget is kept, claiming that if he doesn't brake in and stop the project from being activated it will be the end of all life on earth!

Checking out the remaining crew Dr. Thorson finds them to be no saner then the whacked out Cap. Gordon. There's mathematician Morgan, Nancy Sorel, who just mindlessly doodles on a blackboard numbers and formulas that make no logic or sense, to Dr. Thorson, at all. Then there's the commander of the base itself Skyles, Kieth Hamilton Cobb, who sits behind his desk watching the cartoon channel and playing video games for hours at a stretch!

***SPOILERS***It's when the secret locked door is finally opened after Cpl. Gordon got shot in a struggle with Dr. Thorson, who later ended up shooting both Morgan & Skyles, that the shocking truth was finally reviled to him by the person in charge of the project the bug eyed looking suffering from sleep deprivation Dr. Chandler,Ian McShane, himself. A truth so mind boggling that in order to shut him up Dr. Thorson lost it and indistinctly shot Dr. Chandler dead! And with that not only did Dr. Thorson put an end to Dr. Chandler and the Gemini Project but to himself as well!
