"Wind Chill" is a 2007 horror film starring Emily Blunt and Ashton Holmes. George Clooney and Steven Soderbergh are among the producers of the project.

In this film, a young woman from a northeastern college shares a ride home to Delaware for Christmas with a strange young man she meets from their school Ride Board. After a few hours of driving, the guy detours to what he considers a shortcut, Route 606.

The girl (Blunt) discovers the guy is not from her hometown and is an admirer-classmate from school. He reveals he knows much more about her than she had realized, causing her to become very nervous. When their car gets run off the road by another car on "scenic" Route 606, she becomes suspicious this was all planned, however she soon realizes her strange companion is the least of her worries. As the temperature drops to 30 degrees below zero, ghostly figures begin appearing in the woods where ghastly events had unfolded in the 1950s.
