"You turds can't run away from the Ice Cream Man!"
What is it about?
A kid sees his local ice cream man get shot and grows up to be a disturbed ice cream man (aka Clint Howard). He goes around kidnapping kids and dogs and grinding them up in his ice cream. It is up to the Rocketeers to stop him.
This is one weird movie. I remember watching it as a kid and being creeped out by Clint Howard and I'm still am. He's one weird dude and this movie solidifies that. He talks like Little Nicky and walks like Quasimodo while going on about ice cream and happy days. This isn't a good movie by any means. The acting is terrible, the direction sucks (this movie was directed by a porn director trying to break out into the mainstream), the gore is cheap, and nothing makes sense, but dammit is it ever so entertaining. Watching Clint do his creeptastic performance is only the cherry on top. Add in some fake eyeball eating, David Naughton and Olivia Hussey, a kid they wrapped in pillows to make him look fat, a crazy minister, and a decapitated head on a waffle cone and you have the recipe for some hilarious horror.
It is spectacularly cheaply made and just a good bad movie kind of entertainment. If you love those cheap slasher films made in the late 80s and early 90s, then you will definitely get a kick out of this one.
