Freeze Me (2000)

A woman faces her inner demons when one of three men that had raped her years earlier takes her hostage in her apartment, informing her that the two remaining men would be returning shortly. She manages to disarm her captor, and then kills him in a fit of rage. With no other options left, she freezes the body, and awaits the other two men armed with an array of weapons and a giant freezer. That is as cool as I can make the film sound, but don't buy in to the seemingly interesting plot line. This is as standard and tiresome as you can make a rape-revenge flick. Unlike the Exploitation classics of the 70s and 80s, there is no emotional draw to the lead whatsoever, and very little cathartic response to the deaths of the villains. While the acting and filming are both handled well, there is just nothing done to draw the audience in or to increase the action or suspense the entire run time. The men arrive, they rape her a while, she kills them, they get put in the freezer. Clean cut and dry. If rape and human Popsicles are your deal, please, be my guest. Otherwise, unremarkable and entirely passable.

Rating: 7/10.
Entertainment: 6/10.
Gore: 4/10.

  1. I thought this was just average although the villains were suitably sadistic. There's worse movies out there for this type of film, though. I must say a friend of mine hyped this one to the moon some years ago and I was a bit disappointed, even though I'm not sad I purchased it.

  2. Agreed V, its not a bad film, but it didnt stand out to me in any way. With Exploitation, I prefer extremely exaggerated characters so that I can live with myself after finishing the film knowing that it was only a movie.. only a movie..

  3. Rape/revenge movies have certainly had a huge comeback over the last decade, huh? I am sure at some point Billy or I will see it. If you give it 7/10, it can't be too bad.
