I have to say that my decision to see every film on the DPP Video Nasty list has largely been a good one, as I've discovered many films; films such Possession and House on Straw Hill, that I otherwise might not have seen. But when I see a film like this, it really does make me wonder why I ever bothered. If there ever was a film to make the works of Edward D. Wood Jnr look like masterpieces, this one certainly is it; as poor production values, combined with a hideously unlikely plot line and a rather suspect script ensure that Frozen Scream is one for the 'must not see' list. The film takes in the idea of cryogenic freezing, and attempts to make a zombie movie out of it. The main plot point focuses on the soul and how it is lost through freezing. This idea is never explained, and perhaps even worse than that is the fact that there is very little in the way of zombie action, and overall; it just made me wonder exactly why this film got banned. I'm guessing that the helpful censors were simply in need of more films to ban and, with this being a zombie film, it got on the list regardless. The film does feature someone being injected in the eye; but it's not done very viscerally, and we're not allowed to see much. Overall, you'll miss absolutely nothing by not seeing this film. We thank the lord for small mercies, and the fact that it doesn't last long is one indeed. Therefore, this film comes highly NOT recommended.
