Jack Frost (1996)

Frosty's coming to town... To KILL! A fateful accident turns the homicidal maniac Jack Frost into a giant mutant killer snowman. Now, Jack has returned to terrorize the small mountain town of Snowmonton while seeking revenge against the sheriff that locked him away. JACK FROST has all the makings of a great B-movie: a ridiculous villain, awful humor, and a wintery holiday setting. Wise crackin' Jack is given only the worst one-liners as he spreads his bloody holiday cheer around town. The actors add to the absurdity by playing everything perfectly straight, despite being chased by a killer snowman made out of fluffy white Christmas flock. Director Michael Cooney does earn a few cheap laughs along the way, although most will be laughing at the movie, and not with it. As far as murders go, the film packs in quite a number of ridiculous deaths, including a decapitation by sled, an icicle impalement, and an axe to the face (not what you would expect). Look for Shannon Elizabeth in an early starring role.

Rating: 5/10.
Entertainment: 7/10.

  2. Mr. Banane, if you like really cheesy Slashers, this one can be a ton of fun. I try to watch it every year along with SANTA'S SLAY!
