I first saw Ice Cream Man (1995) about ten years ago at the Vic Theater in Chicago. The theater often hosts musical groups, but they also do what's called a `Brew and View', showing films and serving alcohol. This particular night was a special one, as the Vic was hosting a mini Clint Howard film festival, showing three of his films including Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979), Evilspeak (1981), and closed the night out with the world premiere of Ice Cream Man. It was a blast as Clint was there to present each of the films, and the audience was comprised of only fans (soon to be drunken fans). And to top it off, we all got little, plastic promotional ice cream scoopers.

Directed by Paul Norman aka Norman Apstein, better known for `adult' features such as Edward Penishands, The Erotic Adventures of the Three Musketeers, and Intercourse with the Vampire, the film, which contains no nekkidness, stars that lovable mutant Clint Howard, younger brother to famous director Ron Howard, better known to most of us as Lil' Opie Cunningham. It's not unusual to see Clint appear in his older brothers films, like Splash, Cocoon, and Apollo 13, but don't think he relies on nepotism to get work as the bulk of his credits, films like Infested, Carnosaur, The Waterboy, to name a meager few, had little or no involvement from the elder Howard. Also appearing from the `where are they now' files (better known as the `what the hell happened to my career' files) is Sandahl Bergman (Conan the Barbarian), Olivia Hussey (Romeo and Juliet, Black Christmas), David Naughton (An American Werewolf in London), Jan-Michael Vincent (Damnation Alley), David Warner (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country), ex-baseball great Steve Garvey, Doug Llewelyn (from the 80's TV show The People's Court...

The 90s started giving us horror villains that were more on the campy and silly side. It must have started with Leprechaun, then quickly the whole subgenre went direct to video and remains there to this day. Even now when you go to your local video store you're likely to see titles like Santa's Slay and The Gingerdead Man on the wall along with Nanny Mcphee and Fun With Dick and Jane. These films may have the horror film structure, but basically they're comedies made for horror film fans. Ice Cream Man came out in the mid 90s and didn't seem to find much of a cult audience though it's got cult film written all over it. I'm not sure why it didn't make a bigger splash. I mean, there is an audience for this stuff, they didn't make five sequels to Leprechaun because no one was watching. Ice Cream Man is a real gem. It has the immortal Clint Howard as a psychotic ice cream man driving a truck full of corpses, body parts and bugs. He's obsessed with the idea of an ice cream man bringing happiness to children, yet he wants to kill the children. Of course it's the kids who stumble onto his real intentions, and naturally the adults don't believe them. An interesting cast is assembled for this film. Alot of actors that will be recongnized by horror fans. Their roles are actually quite throwaway(like David Warner's), and usually below the talent of the actor playing it, but it's still cool to see them in it anyway. Clint Howard is the real star of the film however. His mannerisms, his gravelly voice and his cornball lines are enough to have you rolling. I mean, no one would ever buy ice cream from a guy who acted this way.Read more ›

I can't believe I watched the whole thing! There are movies that are so bad that they are actually good....well this ain't one of them! These celebs reached an all time low signing on for this garbage. Clint Howard, poor, poor Clint, Ron if you are reading this....get him a real acting gig! The acting, story, script, and sountrack are so horrible that it comparison made "Showgirls" look pretty darn good! How sad to see such people as Olivia Hussey and Jan Micheal Vincent reduced to such garbage! The special effects I must admit were fairly good, but totally twisted. This movie is so pathetic that the movie "slip cover" refers to actor David Naughton as Haughton.....now that's bad!

Don't be fooled by the title because this is a dark comedy about a psychotic ice cream man that kills and puts body parts in his ice cream and sells it to neighborhood kids.Clint Howard gives a creepy performance as the ice cream man and the movie is sometimes funny like the scene where a cop is eating the ice cream and there's a eyeball in it and the other scene where Howard puts two cops heads on ice cream cones and searches for the kids and pretends there puppets.The movie is a low budget B-movie with bloody special effects and bad acting.Not bad or good just average.Worth the rental but not to buy.

"Ice Cream Man" is a tongue in cheek horror flick from director Paul Norman about frozen dairy products gone horribly awry. Starring the genuinely talented Clint Howard as Gregory Tudor, the film is not especially chilling. (No pun intended.) It is, however, peculiar and unique, scoring points for B-movie aficionados. Howard's performance here is totally over the top (which is interesting contrast given that a contemporary work of his was as an understated NASA flight controller in "Apollo 13.") The film works because of Howard's hammy interpretation of the character.

The plot is fairly generic: traumatized kid grows up to be a messed up adult, who goes on a major crime spree complete with gratuitous (if totally unconvincing) violence and gore. As a child Gregory witnessed a mob hit on the local "Ice Cream King," and has to be placed in the Wishing Well Hospital to help him recover from his emotional scarring. The expository dialogue ranges from the utterly contrived to hilarious puns and inside jokes. My favorite recurrent theme is from Gregory's doctor who keeps repeating the mantra "There are no bad days Gregory, only happy days." Obviously most of the young audience that this is intended for have no clue who Clint's brother is, or have ever heard of "Happy Days." Along the way there is plenty of padding and some ludicrous action: see Clint Howard dance (maybe it's better not to think too much about that,) see Clint knock over a huge display of paper towels in a dramatic flourish in a grocery store, see Clint perform an ice cream ritual in a cemetery, and much more. You get the idea. Numerous tried and true plot conventions are present and accounted for (parents don't listen to kids, etc.) while inept cops cannot solve this extremely obvious case.
