An impressively precipitated, but ultimately average, horror lampoon.
15 July 2003 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

There's a whole world of horror films that are positively hilarious without intending to be...however, horror film parodies generally don't work well. This one is slightly better than most, and it's slickly made for a movie at this lowish production level. Still, THE REFRIGERATOR is as slight on laughs as it is on scares, and would probably have been more successful as a short subject than a feature.

The idea of a refrigerator being the Earthly gateway to Hell carries with it a lot of possibilities, but this film just doesn't begin to realize its own potential. It may be fun enough as a casual time-filler, but ultimately comes off feeling like a feature-length SNL skit. Take this one or leave it...you may find it enjoyable. I, for one, stand at the equator with one foot in the "no" zone.

4.5 out of 10 stars.
