ICE CREAM MAN (1995)

Home

Directed By:
Paul Norman

Starring:
Clint Howard

Rated R
Genre: Horror
Format Used: Netflix DVD
Contains: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence

THE PLOT:

Gregory was abused by an Ice Cream Man when he was a kid so when he becomes an Ice Cream Man as an adult the bad memories drive Greg over the edge and he becomes a cold blooded killer, putting his victims on ice and turning their body parts into ice cream filling.

The Police are clueless and only one little boy suspects the truth but nobody believes him.

ZEDD'S OPINION:

A new twist on the serial killer genre, which shows that anyone can be a serial killer. Why didn't the ending credits mention his name which was Gregory not just Ice Cream Man? There was a scene when the cops were asking Greg a couple of questions and he gave one a scoop of Rocky Road with a human eye ball and he eats it. Besides a moment of ewww! You'd never see the cops on CSI taking anything from a suspect, they would have said "No thank you." Either the cops in Pasadena are complete morons or they didn't write it correctly. That and the fact Greg was just a normal guy with no mask or anything, stimulating yes, perfect, no. 7 STARS.

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

As usual Zedd is too lenient on these lower budget crappers. Even though this isn't as bad as some, it's still far, far from perfect. I think the dialog was somewhat corny, no fault of the actors. I blame the writer for the dialog. Anyway, it's not horrible, but I can only in good faith give it 5 STARS.

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ STORY (The story works.)
+ GORE EFFECTS (Really gross.)
+ CAST (The cast does great with what they were given.)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- DUMB COPS (They aren't to except anything from a suspect to say the least food, food can be poisoned.)
- DIALOG (VOLTRON thinks there is some cheesy dialog in this.)

...AND FINALLY...

- NOT FOR EVERYONE (If you aren't big on this type of genre, then this isn't for you.)
