Hello Supercult West! This is Supercult South Bad Movie Professor Cameron Coker (BS in “Killer Snowmen” with a minor in “Weaponized Hair Dryers”) and I’m reaching out to you from across the country to help hype tonight’s screening of Jack Frost!
Not to be confused with the 1998 family comedrama, Jack Frost, where Michael Keaton dies and comes back as a snow man so that he can continue to disappoint his family from beyond the grave, this Jack Frost is a 1997 direct to video comedy/horror film. With a 7% on Rotten Tomatoes, there’s no escaping the fact that Jack Frost is a pretty bad film, but I’m here to propose an alternative interpretation. I believe that Jack Frost and its equally awful sequel, Jack Frost 2: Revenge of the Mutant Killer Snowman, is actually an elaborate prequel for a new batman supervillain.
Think about it! Jack Frost is a convicted serial killer who is genetically mutated into a pretty awesome cold-themed supervillain. Jack Frost can morph into a giant snowball and charge a group of cops, travel as water and refreeze himself in order to attack someone in the bath, he can survive stabbings, gunshots, and melting. Jack Frost was also released just a few months after Batman & Robin and the film is almost entirely composed of gruesome and ridiculous snowman murders punctuated by Batman and Robin style cold puns.
Jack Frost is the Joker crossed with Mr. Freeze crossed with Clay Face! And you know who plays Jack Frost in the 1998 family film? Michael Keaton, aka, the original 1998 Tim Burton Batman! What was the production company for the 1998 Jack Frost? Warner Bros. Entertainment, the parent company of DC comics! And who else makes entertainment? The distributor of the 1997 Jack Frost, A-Pix Entertainment! Coincidence?! I THINK NOT!! OPEN YOUR EYES PEOPLE!!
You heard it first Supercult! The Truth is Out there! And it’s in really bad movies like tonight’s feature!
Supercult West is proud to present Jack Frost!
