Nice surprise from Troma.
10 March 2005 | by (Mansfield, CT USA) – See all my reviews

I came across Frostbiter by renting a DVD called Nightmare Never Ends: Troma Triple B-Header, Vol. 4 (2004). It features "The Nightmare Never Ends", "Igor and the Lunatics", and "Frostbiter". I wasn't expecting too much but thought I would get some entertainment value out of the three movies. Forget about the other two movies. Frostbiter would be worth the rental or maybe even a purchase if it stood alone. This is a blood and guts, horror/comedy, B movie. The Wendigo is a shape shifting monster in this movie and it takes on many interesting forms, some humorous but all deadly. Lots of violence, some nudity, and quite a few laughs. It's low budget movie and it certainly has some problems, but it's not bad. I thought the music was great but had a problem with it being too loud, especially when there was dialogue going on. I recommend this movie but you really have to be a B horror movie fan to enjoy it.
