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

Did You Know?


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.

new love for cinema

This movie was absolute crap. Nothing in it makes sense. It's funny because there's just no point. Read the tagline! What the hell does that even mean? Were they trying to make a horrible film?

The lead actor, whose name is Jack Frost in the movie, looks like a cross between George Michael and Kevin Smith. It's all downhill form there. They try to incorporate some sort of ridiculous war story into the plot, and it doesn't work at all. All of the actors just look goofy and the writing just makes no sense at all. They do throw in some nudity for good measure though, and to keep people from turning the movie off. I imagine they were trying to make Frost into some sort of cult hero like Ash or something, but, no, not even close. He walks around with his stupid sunglasses killing people. It's all really, really lame. So, yeah, they got all that. Then they got some top of the line computer effects. The helicopters in the movie will blow you away, I totally couldn't tell they were fake, same goes for the bats. I couldn't believe that the director, or whoever the hell it was did a special feature w/ commentary for the special effects. They're laughable at best. The whole movie is laughable actually. Gary Busey's total screen time is about 2 minutes. 2 non-consecutive minutes.

If you're looking for a laugh, definitely check this out. The complete non-sensical-ness(word?) all will have you cracking up.
