One of the most terrible movies ive ever seen. The acting was beyond awful. Even the soundtrack was crap. Someone using a Kmart keyboard hitting random notes. This piece of garbage should be put on ice forever.
With its low-budget, schlock aesthetic, and irrepressibly bad acting, Ice Cream man bears more than a passing resemblance to its older horror comedy cousins of the 80s. However, by the mid-90s when this film was made, the somewhat charming lack of self-awareness seen in movies like Street Trash or The Stuff, had been replaced by a kind of tiresome, heavy-handed irony slopped on with a trowel. It's not that Clint Howard isn't gleefully weird-because he is-or that seeing a model of David Naughton's detached head on top of a giant ice cream cone isn't funny-because it is. What makes Ice Cream Man so sleep-inducing is that having JoJo Adams wear stuffed clothes to make him look heavy, or casting random B-list celebrities like Sandahl Bergman, Jan-Michael Vincent, and Andrea Evans, doesn't come across as cheesy ha-ha, just cheesy. A majority of the jokes register as overly ripe, stiff, and forced, and the child actors end up giving the most inspired performances. Overall, Ice Cream Man has the feel of a bad porno without the sex.
It is a weird old slasher movie.
Purely fantastic. Clint Howard plays the creepy Ice Cream Man to perfection. And for once the kids can actually act. Great movie. I highly recommend it.
It's Just A Big Ball Of Goofy Moments
Funny jokes (mostly) and i'm here from Dead Meat
Horror, high camp comedy as a deranged ice cream man bumps off children fantastic, you couldn't wish for more than vile children getting their just deserts!
One of my favorite childhood horror flicks. Campy, but good.
2/5. Clint Howard is fun and this movie wins points for how bizarre it is, but it's very messy and could have been much better.
There are no Bad Movies only happy, happy, happy, happy ones.
