Storyline

Two friends, Jack Frost and Nat, survive the war in Afghanistan... but the intensity of the war changes both men in irreversible ways. Jack Frost becomes a masterful painter and con man. Nat becomes a vampire. These two former friends are now pitted against one another as these lifestyles naturally cause conflict to arise. A classic con-artist-has-to-kill-his-now-vampire-former-best-friend story. Also, Gary Busey is here as an art collector and advice distributor... for whole minutes at a time. Written by Zeke Zee

Trivia

Kevin Van Hook actually created Frost as a comic book about a decade earlier. The first comic book story introduced the vampire, in an admittedly somewhat Kolchak Night Stalker style approach. However, the sequel mini-series, Frost: The Dying Breed, featured no vampires at all, but rather served as a Wilbur Smith/Wild Geese/Dogs of War/Soldiers of Barabbas style mercenary/modern adventure story.

Absolutely without redeeming features.
27 August 2003 | by dlfasigSee all my reviews

This is one of those rare movies that has absolutely nothing to recommend it. From beginning to end there are no high points. There aren't even points high enough to be called low - it is unrelentingly abysmal.

The acting is so bad you wonder if the cast members are even allowed to join Actors' Equity. I've seen better set design in high school plays. Continuity was awful, costumes were awful, everything was awful. Every possible detail was neglected or overlooked.

It drew an R rating - ostensibly for violence and nudity - but if that's what you're looking for, don't bother. The violence is tame and so poorly choreographed and directed that you're more likely to yawn than gasp. And you can see as much nudity on prime time broadcast TV. The actors aren't even good looking. Not even the gratuitous nude (her whole part was gratuitous not just her nude scene).

Do yourself a favor and leave this one alone.
