Ice Cream Man


Clint Howard kills people and puts them in Ice Cream. He also gives people Ice Cream with bugs and eyeballs in it. Just something he does.

    Ice review Phelous (see what I did there =D )

    The credits of the episode are referencing Dingo’s Pictures’ Pocahontas but I don’t think I saw Wabuu and friends in the review, was it ?

    David Warner is the kind of actor who, when you see his name in something stupid, you’re like “yeah, okay, that tracks.”

    “Sundae Bloody Sundae” is a great subtitle. That alone should have justified the sequel.

      Well, we all know David Warner will appear in anything. I was actually surprised they got David Naughton, Sandahl Bergman (no Conan the Barbarian references, Phelous?), and Jan-Michael Vincent in on this as well, though JMV is so clearly not giving a shit (look, you got my name in the credits, that’s all you’re gonna get). It’s like a little slice of the 80s. Then again, I suppose none of them were doing all that much at the time (except for David Warner, who probably did this between his voice work for Gargoyles and Biker Mice From Mars). Also, it was nice seeing Joe Bob Briggs interviewing Clint Howard. He must have shown this on Drive-in Theater or TNT’s Monstervision. Man, that takes me back.

        Forgot he was in Gargoyles. I should rewatch that one, see who else I can identify.

        You want to know something really weird? Greg Weisman, creator of Gargoyles, producer of Young Justice, and tons of other things…was a voice actor on the dub of Ikki Tousen. I saw that on the credits and was thinking, “oh, there’s no way that’s the same guy, must just be someone with the same name.” Nope!

          Who WASN’T on Gargoyles? It had almost the entire cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, including Jonathan, Frakes, Marina Sirtis, Brent Spiner, Michael Dorn, and LeVar Burton, plus Avery Brooks, Colm Meaney, Kate Mulgrew, John Rhys-Davies, Clancy Brown, Sheena Easton, W. Morgan Sheppard, Dorian Harewood, Rob Paulsen, Matt Frewer, Cree Summer, Tim Curry, Peter Scolari, Richard Grieco, Robert Culp, Darren McGavin, Cam Clarke, Nichelle Nichols, Jim Belushi, Roger Rees, Paul Winfield, Sarah Douglas, Tony Jay, Ian Buchanan, Tony Shalhoub, Hector Elizondo, and Roddy McDowall!

    The value of bitcoin fluctuates wildly. However the trend is for one of them to be worth hundreds of dollars. This doesn’t fit with calling him the the 6 million peso man or discount dollar man.

    Despite how it sounds; nonplussed actually means confused, puzzled, or perplexed. The way it’s used here seems to imply that the character is ignorant or oblivious to events around him.

    I think if this movie went all out on the camp and comedy it would have been better. It seems like it tries at times to have a serious plot, and by paying an actor like Jan Micheal Vincent to come in and literally refuse to act were big downsides.

    The over-the-top nature of the slayings, and having a capable character actor like Clint Howard could have made this a camp classic if they had a more streamlined and competent comedy script.

      Yeah, it’s like this movie is simultaneously trying too hard and not trying hard enough. Howard is clearly doing his best to breathe life into a sub-par script, while Jan-Michael Vincent is just counting the seconds until the check clears. If you’re going to do a movie with a subject as inherently goofy as a killer ice cream man, you really need to go for broke, throw caution to the winds, and ramp up the crazy. As is, it comes off as just a lukewarm horror comedy, neither particularly funny or scary.

    Clint Howard is the true genius of the family. His brothers films are boring.

    Ice Cream Man reminds me of Dr. Giggles which was a movie my friends really liked when we were 15 years old. Any plans on reviewing that?

    My Aunt is the Mistress who got to share a Scene with Clint Howard and a Ice Head Cone.

    On the other plus side, I’m related to a famous Person who was IN ‘Ice Cream Man,’ as opposed to being related to a famous Person and BEING IN ‘Ice Cream Man.’

    Oh, BLESS you, Clint Howard. Making even the most hopelessly crap projects somehow worth it.
    Actually, I was shocked myself that those severed heads are amazingly well done. The prop guy must have put his best work into those, and for a project like Ice Cream Man?? I’ve seen high budget horror films that don’t even come close to that quality! (Then again, a lot of high budget movies have idiotically chosen to use CGI effects where they seriously didn’t need to).
