Jack Frost is a horror-comedy movie from 1997. The movie was directed by Michael Cooney and produced by Jeremy Paige. The cast includes Scott MacDonald, Christopher Allport, Stephen Mendel, F. William Parker, and Shannon Elizabeth. The movie is about a snowman that comes to life and terrorizes a small town named Snomonton. The movie starts on Christmas Eve when a dangerous criminal called Jack Frost (not the singer-songwriter) is being transported by a sheriff called Sam Tiler (Christopher Allport). Suddenly, the transport vehicle collides with a truck that is carrying a genetic material, and both Jack and the genetic material merge into one. The result is that Jack turns into a snowman. Sam believes that Jack is dead and continues his journey to the town.

Meanwhile, the snowman comes to life, and he goes on a rampage, killing the residents of the town. The snowman kills the local bully, a girl who had a crush on Sam, and a few other people. The movie does not reveal how the snowman kills the people, but it shows some amusing and creative deaths.

Sam becomes worried when he hears about the murders, and he suspects that Jack might have come back to life. He teams up with the local scientist, Dr. Stone (Stephen Mendel), to figure out how to stop Jack. Dr. Stone reveals that the genetic material that Jack absorbed was an experimental material that could give life to inanimate objects.

Sam and Dr. Stone realize that Jack can only be killed by heat, and so they come up with a plan to defeat Jack. They lure Jack into a greenhouse that is heated, and Jack melts. The movie ends with Sam finding Jack's harmonica, which Jack had given to his son before he died.

Overall, Jack Frost is an enjoyable horror-comedy movie that is perfect for the Christmas season. The movie has a low budget, and the special effects are not great. But the movie's humor and imaginative deaths make up for the lack of special effects. The movie is not very scary, but it is entertaining and has a few jump scares. The acting is average, but the movie's script is good, and it keeps the audience engaged.

One of the highlights of the movie is the performance of Scott MacDonald as Jack Frost. He brings a creepy and funny vibe to the character. The movie also features Shannon Elizabeth in one of her earliest roles. She plays the role of Jill Metzner, a girl who has a crush on Sam Tiler.

In conclusion, Jack Frost is a fun horror-comedy movie that is a must-watch for fans of the genre. It has a few flaws, but it is still entertaining and funny. It might not be suitable for children due to the gore and violence. But adults who enjoy cheesy horror movies will definitely enjoy Jack Frost.

Jack Frost is a 1996 fantasy movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 29 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
