A conveniently placed toxic truck crashes with a prisoner transport truck. 1 + 1 = 2 (Horror formulaic equation) and a killer snowman is born and on the loose in a small town looking for revenge to the sheriff who imprisoned his human form. These ideas always look good on paper but never turn out well. Jack Frost is another premature horror film that came too soon from the industry womb with a ridiculous villain that never should have been. I don't know what's more threatening, Jack Frost or Gingerdead Man?
The highlights of these cheesy rental horror films are kills no doubt, so lets have a look at some of them. Jack Frost can manipulate his molecular structure which results in a really cool icicle shooting appendage. That's a pretty nice addition to an otherwise boring and silly film, but for the most part the kills are stupid and barely humorous. One-liners go into overkill mode in attempt to make this snowman an iconic slasher villain. Thankfully, that never happens.
I cant tell if its satire or not, but Jack Frost "dies" many times in this film. When I quote die, I mean when the hero disposes of him but never does the finishing blow. That scene happens 3+ times as Jack Frost gets melted, shot, soaked up, and finally anti-freezed to death. The methods of his annihilation were entertaining as well as the ingenious storing him in bottles to bury. Jack Frost is pure rental fodder. I could never recommend this as it is not memorable in any sense, but it is a fine novelty.
