Ahhhhhhhhhhhh! Brain Freeze!
5 November 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

This completely worthless piece of cheap European-produced 60's guff is available in a DVD box-set called "Tales from the Future", along with eleven other titles that really don't deserve to be seen by anyone. In fact, a more suitable – albeit less appealing – title for the collection would have been "Tales that belong in Oblivion for being so crappy". "Frozen Alive" is a boring, overly talkative, tension-free and soporific romantic melodrama that only just pretends to be a Sci-Fi story. A scientist and his attractive female German colleague are performing scientific experiments on chimpanzees, like putting them in the deep freezer for three months, but what they are really doing is fall madly in love with each other. Meanwhile, the scientist's alcoholic wife is killed by her lover and he gets blamed for it. Of course, it's rather suspicious of him to volunteer as the first human guinea pig immediately after his wife goes missing. Everything about this tiresome little production is insufferably mundane, from Bernard Knowles' motionless direction over the incredibly wooden acting performances of the two leads onto the irritatingly clichéd dialogs. Delphi Lawrence's performance as the arrogant wife in a seemingly permanent state of drunkenness is believable, but boring & pointless nevertheless. If you want to see nonsensical stories about triangular relationships and married people nagging to each other, you're probably better off watching "The Bold & the Beautiful" or any other randomly sappy Soap Opera show, instead of wasting money on a DVD-collection that supposedly contains Sci-Fi movies. Bah!
