A mad scientist tries to create a drug for immortality. Before he manages to test it however he is kidnapped by his fellow scientists who are part of a cult who believe that the drug plus low temperatures will be able to create frozen zombies.

Frozen Scream was briefly prosecuted in the UK under the "video nasties" but was withdrawn from prosecution.[2]

Critical reception[edit]

AllMovie called the film an "unintentionally surreal" and "highly bizarre experience psychotronic devotees should enjoy enduring."[2] Writing in The Zombie Movie Encyclopedia, academic Peter Dendle called it a "dismal and homely backyard effort".[3]
