An outrageous murder-mystery for the 'Me Generation'. Seven young strangers go to a spiritual retreat for a journey of personal growth, taking in jealousy, hatred, sexual perversion and a little murder on the way.
Ten years ago, after being accused of a hideous murder of a mother and her twin daughters, Sean Veil became paranoid, filming himself along twenty-four hours a day to have an alibi if necessary. The small time psychologist Saul Seger became a famous forensic profiler and writer with the case and every now and then he accuses Sean Veil of the crime. The reporter Katie Carter believes in Sean's innocence. When the body of the missing Mary Shaw is found, Sean has to prove where he was five years ago. However, the tapes that can prove that he is not guilty have mysteriously disappeared from the storage shelf and Sean suspects that Saul has stolen them to incriminate him. Written by

Lee Evans actually shaved his head and eyebrows for the film, despite being warned that his eyebrows may not grow back again. See more »
During the reconstruction video, the mother lights five candles on a birthday cake. As she lifts the cake, one of the candles goes out, but in the next shot, the candle has been re-lit. See more »
You seem kind of relaxed, if you don't mind me saying. For a man who's about to spend the next 30 years sucking unwashed dick.
You seem kinda jealous, if you don't mind me saying.

This is a pretty cool movie. Very stylish with all the handy-cam shots and the unsaturated colour.
A great performance from Lee Evans.
The plot was great but I found the ending a little too convenient and clichéd. I think it would have been better to spread some of the revelations around a bit, or at least give some stronger hints - or did I just miss them? Or was a different ending initially planned?
While watching I was distracted by wondering how such a guy could finance himself for so long? Would have been nice to have been given a simple reason.
Coincidentally I'd watched The Final Cut the evening before and couldn't help noticing the similarity and opposites of the two films. In The Final Cut the main character is tormented by guilt for something he remembers doing, whereas in Freezeframe Veil is tormented by accusations of doing something that he believes he didn't do. Both characters use av-recording technology to help themselves cope.
Anyway, well worth seeing.
