It’s the most wonderful time of the year as they say and what better way to cherish this holiday season that to watch a movie about a serial killer turned into a homicidal snowman.
You read that right. For this edition of “Horrible Horror Movie Wednesday” I am dedicating it to the direct to video cult horror flick Jack Frost. This is not to be mistaken with the heartwarming family film starring Michael Keaton, this Jack Frost is a very very different kind of entertainment.
Why do you need to watch this, you ask? Since you insist I will happily tell you.
Like many monster movies the villain is created by one elaborate freak accident. Super duper evil serial killer Jack Frost is being transported to his execution during a snow storm, then a horrible car accident happens with a truck carrying mysterious toxic chemicals and BAM, Jack Frost is fused with snow and is now a walking talking heart warming killing machine.
Jack has vowed revenge on the Sheriff who captured him and is taking out his friends one by one in ridiculous ways and since his soul is fused with snow he is practically indestructible and can exist in frozen, liquid, and gaseous state (ruh roh).
Some highlights from this classic family film:
- There is a death by tree ornaments, ensuring the holiday spirit of the movie.
- It turns out the chemicals are part of a grand conspiracy! Yikes!
- There is Snowman rape. Yup. Shannon Elizabeth gets violated by the evil snowman. It’s up there with the tree rape from Evil Dead and you will never look at a carrot the same way again.
- Hairdryers are used as a form of self defense. Deadly hairdryers!
Well, I think that’s all the convincing I need to do. Let’s throw in a trailer just for the cherry on top.
