Cult Hysteria!
26 April 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Low-budget cult films like this keep me alive! The acting is awful and so is the directing, but The Refrigerator is just such a hillarious killing machine. It just moves and grabs someone. This film was so funny and just plain wonderful. Ranks up there with one of the surefire cult classics. If this isn't a cult classic, I don't know what is. Try to find this film on video. If you can ever find it, buy it because it's rare and hard to find and A MUST HAVE for anyone serious interested in the horror genre. I found it for $2.00 in some mom and pop store in New Jersey, and I watch it every now and then. You'll get more then one or two chuckles! ***1/2out of****With writing that's so bad, it's good!
