A magnetic performance by Jeff Goldblum is reaosn enough to watch this spellbinding cult classic that will have you gripped from the first. A serial killer is sent to an institute for study after refusing to speak to anyone but a young member of the hospital. Is Mr Frost the devil himself?

5.0 out of 5 stars The single scariest movie I've ever seen 14 Nov. 2003
By Kirsten R - Published on
I think my title says it all, but this is the scariest movie I've ever seen, and I've seen a lot. No other movie, not "Poltergeist," not "Amityville," not "Jason," not "Freddy," not "Damien," or even "The Exorcist" ever scared me like "Mr. Frost" did. This movie f***** me up for a good week and ruined my sleep like no other movie has ever been able to do. Now THAT'S a good horror flick!
I think the brilliance of this movie, and what many present-day directors forget, is that we can imagine things 1,000 times worse than they actually are. And in "Mr. Frost" the director doesn't show us the gore, death, and destruction caused by Mr. Frost. Instead the director alludes to the horrible, torturous deaths Mr. Frost has caused and lets us, the audience, fill in the gaps with our incredibly creative minds.
There is also the added bonus, as other reviewers have mentioned, of the wonderful dialog between Mr. Frost and his psychiatrist about the nature of the world. Is there true evil in the world, and is the true evil really manifested in Mr. Frost? And if there is true evil, how will the psychiatrist respond to it?
All in all, a great movie, especially for those of you who like to think about movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still waiting for the DVD!!! 12 Mar. 2009
By Jason McKenna - Published on
With all the dumb, highly predictable, badly written and poorly acted "B" rate horror/suspense movies out on DVD, why don't they release a great one?!? Gerrrr! This is truly a GREAT movie! I'll leave out the synopsis because of repetition.

Jeff Goldblum does a remarkable job with this character! His slightly off kilter personality suits this role perfectly because we're never quite sure if he is who he seems to be. He won Best Actor for this role by the way.

This movie reminds me of days of old when writers didn't assume an audience was full of morons who couldn't think for themselves and needed to be hand-held throughout the whole movie.

If you want big explosions, gallons of blood, and flesh ripped asunder, you won't find them here. What you will find is some great acting, skilled use of suspense, a unique story, and a music score that perfectly matches the odd mood that'll stick in the back of your mind for a long time to come.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE release this on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best psychological chillers ever. 10 May 1999
By Chad Huffman ( - Published on
This is one of the more underrated "horror" movies ever, slipping out of the genre even into a more suspense/psychological thriller category. What keeps it pegged as a horror film is the fact that Goldblum plays Satan, but the whys of the movie are what makes it stand apart from the rest. He is not come to reap souls and claim the world in fire and rivers of blood, only to prove to the world one simple thing: true evil still exists. He does that rivetingly well. The original story and Goldblum's excellent sinister demeanor make the flick.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Film long overdue on DVD 7 Jun. 2006
By J. Garcia - Published on
I have not seen this film since its release back in 1990. It blew me away back then. I have been waiting for its release on DVD.. Look forward to that day. It is my favorite Jeff Goldblum overall performance. .. and as the story unfolds it keeps you thinking .. an amazing .. creepy.. yet engaging film.

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate, and a Chill and a Half 28 Mar. 2005
By Santeria - Published on
Watching this back to back with HIDEAWAY is absolutely colossal.
MR FROST, or sometimes THE AMAZING MR FROST, is an icy slice of manifest evil. Probably done on a low budget, the excellence of this film lies in the acting, and superb direction. As has been noted by some commentators , Goldblum's ability to work effectively in any role, lies in his plain and straightforward approach. The horror of the film lies not in the smack in the face slash-gore approach, but in the subtle insinuation of a diabolic power and it's attack on science in this age of "reason". The point of Frost's encounter with a totally "reasonable" person of science, is that his actions speak more than the words of all the reason that science can make available. As the Psychiatrist says, "Shut up, just up... you are already dead", and Frost replies"... No... I am ... reborn". And the horror transforms.
I have not seen a book version of this film, but if there is, it would be, I assume, an awesome, insightful, and very penetrating , item.
The major impression that this film gives, is that with a great script, some good actors, a superb cinematographer, you can still do a good film; with all of the high budget flops now, it still comes down to... does the film entertain? As basic as it sounds, many forget this, and yet MR FROST, HIDEAWAY, et al., all seem to achieve a high quality with a fraction of the budget.
