Trivia

The scenes at the sanitarium were shot at an actual abandoned sanitarium in Pasadena, California. Moreover, the Satanic drawings and graffiti were already on the walls of said abandoned sanitarium. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning sequence, the ice cream truck reads (on the back doors): "Watch Out For Children." Later in the movie, we see that Gregory has painted over the word "For" so that it now says: "Watch Out Children." But, at times, the word "FOR" is mysteriously back on the van, sometimes from one shot to the next. See more »

Watch Out For The Ice Cream Man!
21 April 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is the best killer ice cream man movie I've ever seen. It's also one of the few movies of its kind. The only other movie with a killer ice cream man I know off my head is Mr. Ice Cream Man. Clint Howard does an excellent job at playing the creepy ice cream man. The story is mostly about the Ice Cream Man going around doing bad things and of course selling ice cream to the kids. There's a lot of gory moments in the movie too, one involving a very large ice cream cone! I won't spoil the rest, but this is a movie you must see. It's funny, creepy, and filled with ice cream! One part of the movie that I really found disturbing were the scenes with Gregory in the crazy house. Remember Gregory only Happy Happy Days! The way that Doctor said that was just creepy! Anyway go see this movie, or at least rent it. It's a brain freeze!
