Horror With a Side of Cheese: JACK FROST

Hello, horror lovers! Welcome to another edition of Horror With a Side of . If you are new to the column, here’s the lowdown. I am on a search for the cheesiest horror movies ever made. I talk about my latest find on the first and third Friday of every month.

Additionally, I rate each film on a scale of one to five slices. Several factors go into the rating, such as acting, plot, effects, dialogue and re-watchability. This edition’s movie may give you a chill. With winter winds beginning to blow, I am talking about the 1997 movie Jack Frost. Not to be confused with the family-friendly film of the same name that came out about a year later, starring Michael Keaton. Stick around to find out how many slices I give this one.

About Jack Frost

A serial killer is on his way to his execution. Along the way, the vehicle wrecks, and Jack Frost (Scott MacDonald) perishes in a spray of genetic material. Everyone assumes Frost is dead; however, he has been transformed into an evil snowman bent on revenge.

After his transformation, Frost hunts for the person responsible for putting him on death row. As he goes about his journey, anyone in his path is fair game. Will someone find a way to stop the vengeful snowman, or will he accomplish his mission, taking out as many people as possible?

Jack Frost also stars Christopher Allport, Eileen Seeley, Stephen Mendel, Rob LaBelle, F. William Parker and Jack Lindine. Michael Cooney and Jeremy Paige wrote the story, and Cooney directed it.

This film has a six percent Tomatometer Score and a 30 percent Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Trigger Warning

There is one trigger warning for this film. In one scene, the snowman commits SA against a young woman. To make matters worse, the appendage is an icicle.

My Thoughts

In theory, this movie should be an epic cheesy horror. It’s a killer snowman! It lives up to that idea in some aspects, while in others, it fails.
