Everest will chill you to the bone – and that’s just starting with the story.

The movie recounts a horrific 1996 tragedy in which eight climbers lost their lives trying to summit the famed Himalayan peak. “There was a cluster [of summiters] on the top,” explains director Baltasar Kormékur. “In the end, what happened is that a lot of small things went wrong and waylaid them. People missed their passes, then a big storm hit.” (Jon Krakauer’s best-seller Into Thin Air was about the same events.)
