YMMV: Jack Frost (1997)

  • Camp: It's a movie about a Serial Killer turned mutant killer snowman who gets killed by antifreeze-laced oatmeal, and who kills people while making tons of snowman-related puns. Please try and guess why people call it campy.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: Christopher Allport, who played Sheriff Sam Tiller, was killed by an avalanche.
  • Just Here for Godzilla
  • So Bad, It's Good: The film has been noted for camp value.
  • Special Effects Failure: The spawn of Frosty in the sequel are made of very primitive CGI.
    • Not all are CG. Most of the spawn are actually puppets.
    • Snowballs bounce harmlessly off extras.
    • Many (if not all) of Jack's kills in the second film are also combinations of the costume and primitive CGI, particularly the snow anvil. And then there's Jack's snowdiving near the end of the movie.
  • Ugly Cute: The spawn in the sequel.
  • Uncanny Valley: The Snowman, due to the lack of CGI.
