It’s never too early to start planning what gifts you’d like to give out to your friends and family during the holiday season, and if any of your loved ones have a fondness for cheeseball horror comedies, the MVD Rewind Collection is releasing a special treat this December: on December 14th, MVD is bringing both Jack Frost (1997) and its sequel Jack Frost 2: Revenge of the Mutant Killer Snowman to Blu-ray!

Copies of the first movie can be pre-ordered at THIS LINK, and you can get the second movie at THIS LINK.

Both Jack Frost movies were directed by Michael Cooney. The first one has the following synopsis:

He’s got ice in his veins and he’s giving cold-blooded a whole new meaning… his name is JACK FROST. After five years of terror and 38 bodies in five states, serial killer Jack is on his way to execution. But a freak accident with a truckload of genetic material in the middle of a snowstorm mutates Jack into a killer snowman. Now only an army can stop the slayride of terror from this frosty monster with icicle fangs. Hell has just frozen over… he’s the abominable Jack Frost.

And here’s the synopsis for Jack Frost 2:

Jack Frost (Scott MacDonald), the chiller killer is back and he’s mad as hell. An accidental lab experiment resurrected the evil snowman, but this time, the crystal killer can’t be stopped by fire, bullets or even his worst enemy, chemical anti-freeze. With revenge on his mind, Jack sets out to finish off his nemesis, Sheriff Sam (Christopher Allport), who is vacationing on a Caribbean island. Sam’s balmy paradise turns into a Winter Terrorland when Jack freezes the island and quickly ices everyone around him. No one can stop the chilling killing spree when Jack can travel as lethal liquid or fatal, frosty flakes. Just when you thawed it was safe to go back in the fridge!
