With no pretension to anything other than the basest Z-movie thrills, this tale of a wise-cracking homicidal snowman is not to be confused with the Michael Keaton-starring shit-hurricane of schmaltz released the following year.
Jack Frost sees a psychopathic maniac return to his old hunting ground to continue his killing spree.
Accidentally transformed into a snowman on his way to prison when a crash throws him into some secret government experimental goo (or something), there’s soon no stopping Jack and his inexhaustible arsenal of snow-related puns.
With its insistence on enforced merriment and a script seemingly made up of Christmas cracker jokes taped together, it certainly nails the seasonal spirit.
