This week on the podcast we learn that snow dad is better than no dad, in the 1998 Christmas movie Jack Frost. Not to be confused with the horror movie we covered in Episode 10, this movie does feature a man transforming into a snowman except without all the murder. THIS Jack Frost stars Michael Keaton as musician…well…Jack Frost who fronts The Jack Frost Band. On his way home from cancelling a gig, to see his family, he gets in an abrupt car accident only to return one year later as a snowman. How does he return as a snowman, you ask? Well…we aren’t really sure other than his kid plays a harmonica with no magical powers and all of a sudden the snowman comes alive. This movie is creepy on so many levels and throws so much logic out the window, it’s pretty obvious why it bombed so hard at the box office. It is available on Netflix, so if you’re in the mood for an interesting family holiday movie, then this one is for you!
On the next episode of B Movie Breakdown, we return to the B-Horror genre with the 1984 controversial cult classic Silent Night, Deadly Night. After his parents are murdered, a young tormented teenager goes on a murderous rampage dressed as Santa Claus. Oh yeah, a killer Santa Claus movie! This one is a little harder to find, but if you don’t have it or rent it on dvd, I’m sure it is available on YouTube in some form.
Remember every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
