Dana Andrews stars in the ghoulish, sci-fi horror story The Frozen Dead. Twenty years after World War II has ended, members of the Nazi party remain, and they are determined to again rise to power. Having funded German doctor Rupert Norberg's (Andrews) cryogenic experiments since the war, the party makes it clear that they expect him to reanimate some 1,500 frozen Nazis! Fearful for his life, Norberg continues his research – in increasingly horrific, murderous ways. But when his niece's (Anna Palk) best friend goes missing, the young woman tries desperately to enlist help from an American scientist (Philip Gilbert) to stop the madness. Andrews took many jobs to pay the bills while trying to make it "big." His boss at a Van Nuys gas station was so impressed with the actor's determination that he paid for his acting and singing lessons.

Like the two other movies I mentioned, this film deals with keeping a detatched head alive but here it's more than just that. There are arms and entire bodies that have been kept frozen while Nazi scientist Dana Andrews (complete with a fairly convincing German accent) attempts to revive them. The key subplot involves his daughter's friend (Kathleen Breck) whose head, after an assault, is being kept alive to aid in the experiments. The look of the head with it's exposed brain under a glass dome and the helplessness and quiet suffering of the victim, make this a movie that once seen, cannot easily be forgotten. Check on the user comments on imdb to see what I mean. In addition to the head, a key scene involves the aforementioned disembodied arms. Long unavailable, THE FROZEN DEAD was made back-to-back with IT!, the Roddy McDowall Golem movie.
DVD Code: all region
20 years after WW2 ending a old Nazi-Scientist (Dana Andrews) has to bring back dead Nazi-Soldiers to build up a new Nazi-Army.
The good thing: its a nice small sci-fi/horror flic.
The not-so-good-thing: Dana Andrews might be to big for this movie
nice: handsome looking Philip Gilbert
not so good from today view: the "horror" is gone
Very good: the picture quality is pretty good (clean and sharp)
Edward Fox (his most popular role might be "The Day of the Jackal"!) can be seen as one of the "living" Dead as the Brother of Dr. Norberg.
FAZIT: a nice small trivial sci-fi/horror Low-budget-flic for fans of this kind of movies and fans of Edward Fox/Dana Andrews but nothing else
