Critic Reviews for Mister Frost

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

The film does grip, despite the sometimes below-par quality of both the camerawork and the acting.

Mr. Goldblum, Ms. Baker and Mr. Bates (in a relatively small role) all seem professional, restrained and uncomfortable, which is at least a tribute to their good sense.

Thousands of actors have played Lucifer, but none has ever given him this particular charismatic brand of idiosyncratic loopiness.

"Mr. Frost" is silly, but not silly enough. The problem with movies like this is that they've forgotten how to be absurd.

Muddled is the perfect word to describe this mess.

Audience Reviews for Mister Frost

Anxiously waiting for this to be released on DVD in the U.S. so I can buy it and watch this creepy gem again!

None of this is particularly terrifying or gripping, especially since Gallic writer-helmer Philippe Setbon is incapable of creating any suspenseful doubt about whether Goldblum is indeed Satan, or merely a dangerous schizophrenic with psychic and hypnotic powers.

Jeff Goldblum plays the devil. Quite awesome when I was still actively watching it; got a little too bombed to finish it. But I'll probably watch this again because this is a movie that for me is fun enough to watch a few times.
