Some folks don't get it. This is _supposed_ to be a parody, albeit one made on a low budget. The producers don't take themselves too seriously, and the end result is something a lot funnier than the over-blown Michael Keaton '98 version. Every aspect of a killer snowman is explored as the antagonist shoots icicles, decapitates a kid with a sled, has sex with a woman using his carrot nose, kills a victim by turning her into a Xmas tree, and displaying the same indestructible aspects as a Terminator. Other amusing moments to watch for are: the opening narration (done by a Malcolm McDowell wanna-be), the horny teenagers breaking _into_ the sheriff's house to have sex (??) and the cast's refusal to speak any obscenity: lots of "Hecks" and "Darns" are inserted at the most inappropriate times. This is a great movie to kill 1-1/2 hours with if you can pick up the tape at bargain rates or catch it on cable.
