Camp Classic That Might Have Had A Better Reputation If Released in the 1980s
16 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

An average rating of 4.4 on the IMDb usually means that you're going to be watching slightly less than mediocre fare , especially if it's a horror movie that went straight to video but this is entertainment of the lowest order . It might be a good film but it's like classic clip from Fox News where Sean Hannity criticises Christopher Hitchens for being " incredibly mean and incredibly thoughtless " and that's a good enough reason to love both Christopher Hitchens and JACK FROST

Any film that has a serial killer being regenerated as a snowman deserves some credit for that bonkers premise alone and the film does make the best of this premise and what makes it even more outstanding is that it is incredibly mean spirited . Take a scene where a teenage bully gets his head bitten of and the parents of the deceased bully and his victim get in to an argument and the victims father states that " Your son is a couple of feet higher than mine " only for an onlooker to blurt out " Not any more he ain't " . Who needs William Goldman when you've got killer one lines like that ?

This scathing dialog - much of it spouted by the eponymous monster - reminded me of the wise cracking villains we had in 1980s horror films like Freddy Kruger or Channard Cenobite from HELLRAISER 2 . Indeed I constantly found myself having to the check the IMDb hadn't done a major error in giving the year of its release as 1997 because the whole look and feel of the movie screamed 1980s to me . A lot of this might have been down to the slightly murky and grainy cinematography but even so the whole fabric screams that it's a film from ten years earlier something of a golden age for the horror genre . In fact if it had come out ten years earlier then this would have been a film held in much higher regard which it does deserve . Highly enjoyable low grade entertainment that did raise a few chuckles
