Film: Jack Frost (1997)

Tommy: I said, who's there?

Jack Frost: Well it ain't fucking Frosty!

Jack Frost is a Slasher Movie duology about a serial killer who gets mutated into a snowman. Both films are campy direct-to-video efforts, but the first one is better known due to sharing its name with a family film.


This film has examples of:

  • Blood from the Mouth: Jill, after being raped to death
  • Chekhov's Gun: Ryan's oats, that he laced with anti-freeze.
  • Clueless Deputy: Joe, though none of the police force is particularly competent.
  • Covers Always Lie: Yeah, Jack Frost looks NOTHING like he does in the poster you see here.
  • Deadpan Snarker: The titular Jack Frost, as well as Chris and Marla.
  • The End... Or Is It?: As our heroes bury what's left of Ol' Jack, little do they realize that the antifreeze of which Jack is now a part is bubbling...

Jack Frost 2: Revenge of the Mutant Killer Snowman has examples of:

  • Alas, Poor Villain: The deaths of Jack's snowball children in the sequel-one of them dies in Jack's arms and causes him to cry a Single Tear and vow for vengeance.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Jack puts his stamp on a snowball fight by throwing his projectiles with such force that they take people's arms off.
