In this sequel of the first Jack Frost movie, Sheriff Sam Tiler, his wife Anne, and Sam's two deputies (also husband and wife) decide to go on a Caribbean vacation to take their minds off the traumatic events of the previous movie in a place with absolutely no snow. Their holiday will be short-lived, however, as the thawed murderer gets inadvertantly re-frozen and brought back to life. As if that weren't bad enough, he now has the ability to remain frozen even in tropical temperatures, and he's headed south to settle some old scores.Written by

It rained the entire four weeks of shooting the movie, resulting in a tropical island with an amazing lack of sun. See more »

The DVD version released by Una-pix/Ardustry has more gore, nudity, and bad language than the VHS version. The VHS version has most of the gore, profanity, and nudity taken out, which is bizarre. The major differences between the DVD and the VHS are:
The deadly snowball fight is more gruesome. Tons of Blood splatters out from a man's arm onto a woman right after it's ripped off by the snowball. Also, there are shots of people getting gutted and killed by flying icicles and snow balls, with lots of blood everywhere. The VHS version cuts out before anybody is hit by the icicles or dies.
There is nudity in the scene where the woman jumps into the pool naked.
More gore in the scene where the three girls are killed by the beachside when Jack first comes onto the island.
Profanity is in in this version (barely any in the VHS).
More gore to practically every other murder in the movie. The DVD version also has a higher body count because the VHS cuts alot of deaths out.
If you have been reading my user comments, you will have seen that I enjoyed the original "Jack Frost" movie. I thought it was a pretty funny black comedy. So when I heard they had made a sequel, I was set to rent it. However, none of the video stores in my city got it (knowing that video stores watch screeners, that should have been my first warning.) It took years for me to get a copy, which I did by my Internet DVD renting service. On the DVD, I saw that there was a 3 year gap between the film copyright and when it was released on DVD - which should have been my second warning.
Anyway, I watched the movie, and I was sorely disappointed. The movie looks like it was made on a budget much smaller than the first movie (if that's possible). While the cheapness occasionally gets a laugh (check out the "airport" near the beginning), most of the time the movie looks very tacky. Some parts look like they were shot on videotape and not film!
Despite the cheapness, I might have still enjoyed the movie had it the wit of the first movie, but it doesn't. The humor this time around seems very forced, with (among other things) too many lame wisecracks by the snowman. The script also suffers from having a number of boring stretches, a lame climax, and the movie having to resort to ripping off "Gremlins".
Is there anything good about this sequel? Well, I thought that there were a few decent splatter scenes, which managed to be gory and amusing at the same time. But they are not enough to make it worthwhile to slog through the boredom and lameness in the rest of the movie.
