Haunted by memories of his previous battle with the killer snowman, the Sheriff from the first 'Jack Frost' movie takes a holiday trip to a tropical island with his wife and some friends... only to be pursued by the re-constituted frozen killer, who can now not only survive the warm temperatures, but he can also reproduce himself (!) in the form of tiny homicidal snowballs. Naturally, gory mayhem ensues (with a few rather obvious nods to 'Gremlins')
This camp-to-the-max, cheap as hell sequel wasn't nearly as much fun as the first 'JF,' mostly because the cast plays up the comedic factor this time around. It was actually funnier when they played everything straight in the first movie, as if they were in a 'real' horror flick. The evil snowball critters were a hoot though.
Make no mistake, neither of the "Jack Frost" films are anywhere close to being GOOD movies, but they're so bad that they're actually kind of awesome in a weird way. Put them both on your Twisted Christmas video viewing list.

Give the film a break - it is what it is...

"This movie was never intended to be a horror/scary movie. The filmmakers CLEARLY meant for it to be a campy, funny film, with a lot of humorous deaths along the way. If you watch it with that in mind - NOT expecting anything truly scary - but just a disposable, kill-90-minutes-on-a-Saturday-afternoon movie. The production values are nil, and the acting and script are unquestionably sub-par, but on that one certain level - that very specific level I mentioned previously - this movie actually has some funny scenes and isn't as bad as others have made it out to be. The strongest point I can make is the one I made already: if you are looking for The Shining or Rosemary's Baby, this AIN'T it. If you're bored or under the influence of something, there are worse ways to spend 90 minutes. Looking for true scares? Skip it. Looking for a quality horror movie? Skip it. Looking to kill some time and maybe laugh a little, and lighten up a bit, you may want to at least give it a try. I gave the one two stars, because one stars are really reserved for those films that intend to scare and pretend to deliver (if only through the box cover artwork and "reviews" from obscure online review sites) and really rip off the audience.
Just by way of background, and while other reviewers seems to prefer to reveal much of the story and plot, I think that sort of ruins the film in many cases. So, you'll want to look for other reviews and reviewers if that is what you are looking for..."
Fun, Not as Good as the First, But Fun

"I have to say, I enjoyed this film very much. I mean, I knew going in that it was going to be a cheesy horror film. Just look at the cover, and you know that. And I was not disappointed. It was fun from the get go with cheesy acting (although the woman who played the main character's wife was very likeable in her role, a much beefier part than in part 1), cheesy dialogue, and tons of gore (at least on the DVD. I hear the VHS is heavily cut). While this is a step down from part 1, in actual film grade and set design, it realizes that from the get go. This one is ten times more self referential than the first one, and also lacks any disturbing scenes (Shannon Elizibeth in the bath tub was one of those scenes in the first one) but still has BUCKETS of gore. I mean, this one has red stuff to spare. And the addition of the little snow ball nasties was a nice touch. They were cute, and very fun to watch. If only they did more CG stuff with them. And on CG, I have to say, the little bit that there was in this movie looked REALLY good for such a cheap budget. If ya liked the first one, check this out. If you haven't seen the first one, watch that instead. Then maybe check this out. Now will someone make a Jack Frost 3!"
SNOWBALLS FROM HELL

"After seeing the wonderful first JACK FROST, I was wondering if the sequel could deliver as well. It's probably not quite as good as the first, only if the premise isn't as funny and original as it was the first time. BUT it's still one howler of a movie. In watching the extras, director/writer Michael Cooney is obviously the class clown with a warped although stimulating sense of humor. One can see why this movie is so outrageously hilarious!
Christopher Allport, Eileen Seeley, Marsha Clark and Chip Heller are back from the original and David Allen Brooks has plastic surgically returned as Agent Manning. They are all priceless, and have some really funny scenes.
But the star of this one is definitely Frost himself and his killer snowbabies. Looking like Gremlins, smiley faces and the Pillsbury Doughboy all combined, their attack on the lodge is hysterical. The deaths are more gruesome in this one, but they're done in such a "cartoon" style, the violence is more camp than gore. Once again, the music is great, not quite as inventive as the first, but nonetheless perfect.
I loved these two movies because they made me laugh!!!"
