Personally I like my horror dark, gritty and scary. A good horror villain is key in most, if not all good slasher/monster flicks. From Jason Voorhees to Pinhead, Freddy Krueger to Leatherface, horror villains and monsters serve (mostly) one purpose, to terrify! Scare the shit out of audiences and make us all cringe in fear. Well that’s the idea anyway. Here are 6 hilarious horror villains that make me laugh every time! Enjoy.

Jack Frost. 1996.

Jack Frost is an American horror comedy film written and directed by Michael Cooney and released in 1996. The movie takes place in the fictional town of Snowmonton, where (on the week before Christmas) a truck carrying serial killer Jack Frost (Scott MacDonald) to his execution crashes into a genetics truck. The genetic material causes Jack’s body to mutate and fuse together with the snow on the ground. Jack is presumed dead and his body melts away. Netflix However, he comes back as a killer snowman and takes revenge on the man who finally caught him, Sheriff Sam Tiler (Christopher Allport). The film has since become a cult classic. (Wiki)

I decided to get into the holiday spirit by watching all of the Christmas related horror flicks I could get my hands on. The first one across the table was Jack Frost, wow. I’ve never been a fan of horror comedy (granted a few exceptions ofcourse) so I wasn’t to enthusiastic about watching Jack Frost. The really badass poster got me though, couldn’t resist. Total B-horror fest all the way here folks, you either love em or hate em. Poor acting, bad dialogue, cheesy soundtrack and a weak plot make this a difficult watch for the serious horror fan, but if you can get over the negative aspects of the film it does tend to get enjoyable. The murderous snowman is really a total laugh; paper-mache coated with some plaster of paris (I guess thats what it’s all about with this one). Lots of wacky killing including a kid getting decapitated by an old fashioned sleigh, some guy getting an axe down his throat, a woman getting strangled by xmas lights, a woman getting killed by sex with his carrot nose (ya you heard right) and many more crazy ass deaths. The evil snowman loves to make wise cracks while he kills his victims which I found quite amusing actually. How do you combat a ruthless snowman killing machine you ask? Why hair dryers ofcourse (makes sense doesn’t it). All in all Jack Frost is for B movie lovers, cult horror fans and overall crappy horror comedies; not at all what I’m into personally. I did have a pretty good time with this flick though; a wise cracking psychotic killer Snowman…..what’s not to like! Jack Frost @ IMDb.
