Father Frost

Please choose a format above.

Pig sleds, murder trees, Russian children left in the woods to freeze to death: Father Frost may just be one of the greatest love stories of our time!

Nastenka is a beautiful teenage girl with one weird quirk: she can literally control the passage of time. In a just world she’d be given a mediocre Marvel show for people to wildly overrate, but in Father Frost she’s cast out into the woods by her evil stepmother.

Meanwhile, after dissing a human mushroom, the proud Ivan finds himself sporting the head of a bear. From here, the movie starts to get kind of kooky. Not only does Nastenka reject Ivan, he also has to fend off hordes of weirdos who worship him as the first communist furry. 

Will Ivan and Nastenka finally be reunited? Does Ivan get into an argument with a hut? Did Nastenka’s gross sister immediately shoot to the top of the “Subjects of riffed movies we’d like to party with” list? Where can we get our own Pig sled? And when the hell does Father Frost show up in the movie that’s named after him? Find out when Mike, Kevin, and Bill take on Father Frost, an MST3K classic (as "Jack Frost") - riffed unedited and in HD for the first time!
