Another one bites the Frost!
20 July 2006 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Well well…Lloyd Kaufman and his Troma-Company nearly had me fooled there for a moment! Especially during the intro, "Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo" looks like it'll become an atmospheric and professionally plotted horror film, with an interesting topic and eerie set pieces. Very much UNLIKE the usual Troma products, in other words. In an isolated cabin deeply hidden on Manitou island, an elderly hunter explains that he's the guardian of a mythical monster called the "Wendigo". The Wendigo is an ancient Indian cannibalistic creature and a spiritual circle of human skulls prevents its resurrection. When the new hunting season opens, the circle is broken and, from that moment, the movie also turns into a typical Troma-production! We're talking lousy acting performances, a total lack of tension and continuity and the most absurd gory situations imaginable. The defeated guardian appoints a new one and, even though it totally remains unexplained why this girl is the new "chosen one", she travels to the island and combines forces with a clique of macho hunters. The monster kills every person on the island and it's not even safe anymore to eat chili… "Frostbiter: etc…" is an amusing low-budget horror flick as long as you're not expecting any logic. The gore is plentiful and cheesy, with several decapitations, ripped off faces and hideous cabin-demons that refer to Sam Raimi's "The Evil Dead"-films. There even is a giant poster of "Evil Dead 2" hanging on the wall. The dialogs are often very funny because they just don't make the slightest bit of sense. The only truly annoying aspect is the choice of totally inappropriate rock music that even plays when the characters are talking. Overall, worth a look if you're an undemanding fan of cheesy horror crap.
