Simpson and director of photography Mark Garret manage to place the audience well inside the disoriented, dystopian world inhabited by Veil.

Evans is wonderfully vulnerable and insidious as the mischievously named Sean Veil.

Sadly, after a promising opening, John Simpson's feature debut dissolves into a disappointing hodgepodge of risible overacting and transparent plotting.

Audience Reviews for Freeze Frame

This dark, moody and atmospheric drama is drenched in black and gray shades, almost devoid of color and life. It has an interesting gimmick that is stretched a bit too thin..either the lead character is guilty and is mentally ill, or is innocent and the world is out to get him. The acting by Evans is on spot, however the surrounding cast tries too hard at times, and their performance suffers. The plot is a one trick pony that sustains life by continually twisting and turning, so the viewer is kept wondering till the very end, when more twisting is conducted than a chubby checker song. Orwellian in tone, this film is a fairly original piece of work thats worthy of your attention.
