One year after the murders in Snowmonton, Sam and Anne head off to a tropical island for Joe and Marla's wedding. Glad to be somewhere snow free for Christmas the friends hope to have a wonderful holiday but Jack Frost is back and he has some new powers.
This sequel to the cult hit which is obviously inspired by 'Critters', manages to be clever whilst pretending to be dumb for fans of the original, by that I mean that Michael Cooney has really thought about his script, and therefore when characters do stupid things, it ends up being a clever joke.
Aesthetically, this film looks sharper but I felt that it made it look cheaper than the original. The cast all have fun with the material and it is far gorier and contains more nudity than the first film.
By films end I had pretty much decided that the first film is my favourite, but I still had fun watching this.
Not an amazing film but Michael Cooney's intelligence shines through. I'm glad that he is now making big budget films.
