A couple of Christmas movies tonight. Both I'd seen before, both have killer snowmen, and both made me laugh.
Jack Frost is a 1997 horror comedy about a convicted killer who gets covered with goo that turns him into a sludge that animates the surrounding snow. This all happens on a road in the country right near the town where the killer was caught. The killer promised to return from the dead to kill the sheriff of the town. Happy coincidence or what, huh. The snowmurderer gets to killing and that sheriff has to team up with jerky government types to stop the murderous snowman. There's plenty of gags, gore and red snow. I seen this 3 or 4 times now and it makes me laugh each time. Worth checking out for those so inclined. You can see a watchable copy on YouTube here.
A Very Harold And Kumar Christmas is a 2011 comedy with our old pals Harold and Kumar. They've gone their separate ways, Harold is a responsible businessman with a nice house and a wife, Kumar isn't going to med school anymore and his girlfriend has left him. A package for Harold shows up at Kumar's and he takes a trip to Harold's place. The package turns out to contain a big ass joint that Kumar lights up. Harold gets mad at Kumar and tosses the joint out the window. It magically opens the window and flies into the special Christmas Tree that Harold's father-in-law, Danny Trejo, has raised from a pup. It goes up like it was made from gasoline and Harold and Kumar spend the rest of the movie trying to get a replacement tree. There's plenty of laughs, collateral damage and near death experiences. Santa gets shot, a baby gets high on cocaine and Wafflebot is motherfuckin' awesome. This is a Christmas movie that everyone should have in their library.
