Frostbiter is a hilarious B-Movie!
14 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, it's cheesy. But once you start, you'll enjoy the cheese! Plus, the rock and roll is fun: Great hooks and driving beats.

Frostbiter is about the Wendigo which has been portrayed in many movies and TV shows... even Charmed. But this movie is fun, creepy, cheesy, hilarious, gory, and a great pick for a snowy night when you're in the mood for popcorn and a B-movie! Think back to the days of the Killer Tomato or the Blob or the Gremlins or Friday the 13th or the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. All of those became cult classics because of a certain amount of CHEESINESS! And frankly all were better done than this one, but... I'd love to see this flick in a drive-in theatre, sitting in the backward-facing backseat of an old station wagon. Yup - that's the kind of movie this is.

Ron Asheton ain't the best actor - or really anything even remotely close to the second from worst... but there are still fun monsters, gore, scary faces, creepy old people, a plane flying through a snow storm.

And hey - anyone who's lived in Northern Michigan knows of the tales of the Wendigo. It's Big Man. Really Big!
