Frozen Scream

Please choose a format above.

When a movie was shot in 1975, never distributed to theaters, and eventually released eight years later on VHS as part of a two-pack, you KNOW it’s gonna be good. That’s the Frozen Scream promise!

Allegedly a zombie movie, Frozen Scream is mostly about cultists in black robes chasing people around with needles and then sticking them in freezers. Like the undead, the film feels stitched together from lots of different pieces that have nothing to do with each other. The most prominently bizarre result of this is voiceover narration busting into scenes where it doesn’t belong, running over character dialogue in a technique that can only be called “absolutely maddening.” Ever wanted to hear a detective being interrupted by his own narration, and also his voice in the narration is different from his voice in the scene? This film’s for you!

It’s pure chaos, but we kind of love it. Another high honor: when it was released, Frozen Scream was one of the first films the UK government added to its “video nasty list”, which was a real thing that existed! 

Video nasties! Freezer zombies! What more could you want? Put your shrieks on ice and join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for Frozen Scream!

Rated TV-MA for nudity, gore, sexual situations, and an excessively terrible song.
