Some 90s horror for your listening pleasure this episode: Ice Cream Man. This Clint Howard starrer is an odd duck, and is about, not surprisingly, a killer ice cream man.
A neighborhood kid goes missing. Suddenly, all signs point to the local oddball eccentric, the man in the white uni who brings treats to all the kids.
Ice Cream Man also features Jan Michael Vincent as a cop, in as lazy a performance as you’ll ever see, as well as Olivia Hussey (Black Christmas, etc).
The cast of kids is what makes this film so joyous. There’s Tuna, the fat one, Johnny, Heather, and the bizarrely named, Small Paul.
The 90s was a rough time for the horror genre, but it’s nice to see a few quirky gems like this one.
