Jack Frost (1997) Film Review

I’ve watched Dead Snow and Jack Frost? Damn, I must really be in a Christmassy mood, huh?

Directed by Michael Cooney, Jack Frost is a horror comedy centering on a murdering snowman that terrorizes the townspeople, especially Sheriff Sam Tiler (Christopher Allport), of Snowmonton.

And the psychopathic snowman slaughters people in the grisliest ways possible. For instance, Jack Frost decapitated Billy, a local bully, with his sled; his head flew clean off. Sally, Billy’s mother, is choked with festive Christmas lights, and her head is repeatedly bashed against beautiful ornaments. And Jake, Billy’s father, is finished when an entire axe is jammed down his throat.

Even though Jack Frost is crazy, he still manages to unleash some powerfully comedic puns. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • [I’m] the world’s most pissed-off snow cone.
  • Is it cold in here, or is it just me?
  • Listen, I got a point to make with you. [Said after hitting someone with an icicle.]
  • Don’t eat yellow snow.

And the only thing that can kill Jack Frost is…antifreeze! (We discover this fact when the Sheriff pours his son’s “special” antifreeze oatmeal onto Jack Frost, who starts to howl and burn. What child uses antifreeze in oatmeal?!)

Overall, Jack Frost was decently comical. Who knows…you might even begin looking at snowmen in a whole new light.

  1. All the snow puns make me think of Schwarzenegger in Batman & Robin. Amazing 🙂
