Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo Star_onStar_onStar_onStar_on 1.5 4.0 from 2 reviews

Disappointing Troma entry takes itself a bit too seriously. It wants to be an "Evil Dead on Ice" (we even see a movie poster for same in the flick); the plot involves hunters trapped in the frozen woods of Northern Michigan by the evil spirit "Wendigo." It's short on original horror and the laff-factor is not up to usual Troma standards (although the killer chili was a nice touch). The only saving grace is the quirky soundtrack, including said chili's theme song by Randall and Allan Lynch, "March of the Undead" by the 3-D Invisibles, and "I'm a Hellbilly" by Elvis Hitler. Based on the comic book character of the same name.

The soundtrack tune "Just Chili" was actually by Dave and the One Ways out of Cincinnati. A B movie scene that should not be missed.

Frostbiter: Wrath of the Wendigo came out in 1994 and has a total running time of 90 minutes. Ron Asheton, Patrick Butler, Lori Baker and Devlin Burton star in this horror/comedy film. When two hunters break a sacred circle while hunting, it releases the scary wendigo. The wendigo kills and hunts down many of the hunters. It is up to a woman and a guy, who isn’t that great at hunting, to save the day.
