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.

Goldblum's dithering and menacing Satan is a classic

Audience Reviews for Mister Frost

A chilling, atmospheric supernatural thriller with fascinating premise, Mr. Frost is a seemingly normal and charming man, who has just been arrested for torturing and murdering 24 people including children in his home, then burying them in the garden of his large mansion. He reveals that he is not just a insane serial killer, but that he is the Satan himself, and there in lies the tale. Frost has not said a word since he was incarcerated two years ago, he is transfer from prison to a special psychiatric institute in the hopes they can reach him. All efforts to find out who he is has failed, Frost is truly a man with no past or identity. Strange things begin to happen shortly after his arrival at the institute, causing a doctor superbly played by Kathy Baker to believe his claim, the police inspector who arrested Frost, played by the great Alan Bates comes to the aid of the doctor, who is now threaten by this strange man who is pure evil incarnate. Well-directed and written story, with a standout mesmerizing performance by Jeff Goldblum as Mr.Frost, it is without doubt one of the finest performances of his career. A memorable and entertaining character study. Highly Recommended.

Three stars for Jeff Goldblum being such a good creep. He's like Walken, who can turn most crap into fun crap. The movie started out pretty promising, and then got a bit stale.

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.
