The crew find that the nearby melting glacier is leaking a red liquid, turning the local wildlife into ravenous biological monstrosities. It quickly turns out to be a very special juice - with unexpected genetic effects on the local wildlife.

"After his promising hourlong debut, the zombies-in-Berlin film, Rammbock, Austrian director Marvin Kren turns things up a notch for The Station (Blutgletscher), a feature-length thriller-horror hybrid featuring mutated mountain creatures that appear at an Alpine glacier that’s mysteriously covered in a red substance that looks like blood."

"Again written by Kren’s regular collaborator Benjamin Hessler, this is another compact genre item that offers enough variations on established clichés (from films like John Carpenter’s The Thing especially) to keep things pacey and entertaining. The science employed to explain the crossbreeding that creates the unsurprisingly aggressive animals is somewhat murky, but thrill-seeking fans are unlikely to object as this is a creature feature that’s all about how to battle the beasties -- hint: always keep a core drill handy -- and not how they came into this world, which seems of secondary interest at best."
