Product Description

It has taken five years to track down serial killer Jack, but he is now on his way to execution. However, when the vehicle he is being transported in collides with a truckload of genetic waste, Jack is transformed into a killer snowman, and goes on a murderous rampage.

Review

Jack Frost is one of the funniest films I have ever seen, and it contains some absolutely classic film comedy moments, which unfortunately will never be seen by most people (the corpse in the rocking chair, anyone?). It's no horror film (I've seen bags of shopping which are more frightening), so just take it as it was obviously intended - an unashamedly low-budget, tongue-in-cheek horror film spoof. PS Jack Frost II is rubbish. --Simon Cox

ok, maybe not the best, but it IS damn funny. It's a film that doesn't take itself too seriously, and doesn't ask you to either. Just sit back, relax and let Christmas come early! I first saw it in the local rental store (it had a holographic cover) and thought it was so preposterous a story that it HAD to be watched. And I'm glad i got it. I hear there's a sequel too. Oh, and just how DO you tell the difference between Snowmen and Snow-women?!!!! --Richard Bennett

This may be the worst film ever made but it is absolutely hilarious. The bath scene had me crying with laughter. This is not a horror but a classic comedy, watch this film and your life will change for the better. p.s After you see this film you will want to watch 'jack frost 2,' well dont,because that is trully the worst film ever made. --jamkopking --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

jack frost is a 1996 movie that can easily get 1 star for the shoddy acting,woeful script and so on but with that comes a fortunate thing,the film is genuinely funny and filled with quotes that while maybe not as good as say,ash from evil deads,are cool all the same.

To have a serial killer return as a snowman to the town that threatened his life borders on the insane and the shots of jack up close reveal a man in a dodgy white suit,but again it works,not every film could find glory in its failings but with jack frost it works.

The film may never have been made to be viewed for its lack if brilliance but it has become infamous for that nevertheless and scenes where jack asks for a cigarette and then kills the person who he asked with an axe and then jack says 'i only axed you for a smoke' give you an idea of what you are dealing with ,but its that rich vein of quotes that make the film so bad,yet so good,there are lots of shoddy b movies but they will struggle to get 4 stars the way jack frost does,strange,isnt it.

This is essentially a bad movie, there is no plot, the acting is very bad, the budget is non-existent.
It is watchable but you will find yourself bored most of the time.

My family have always loved this alternative Christmas film. Funny and awful. Hate all the cheesy Christmas films - Bad Santa and this one are the best.

OK the idea is fairly reasonable for a horror film but to seriously pull it off you need a good budget and this film has NO budget from the look of it. They must have spent most of it on the clever DVD cover art as it's nothing like what you see in the film. If you're looking for a good cheap horror film then look somewhere else this is not worth a single pound of hard earned money. The acting is terrible and the snowman is just a guy in a suit most of the time and there are a few really cheap and cheesy CGI effects and little blood. The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because it does have a cameo from Shannon Elizabeth who must have been incredibly hard up at the start of her career, she is in a shower scene with the snowman. There is also a sequel to this which is believe it or not even worse! You have been warned!!
