1997, Vinegar Syndrome, 89 min, USA, Dir: Michael Cooney

On the way to his execution, serial killer Jack Frost's prison bus crashes into a tankard full of chemicals, which transform him into a giant killer snowman. Now as a super-powered psychotic Frosty, Jack goes on a new killing spree in one of the most outrageous holiday horror films of the VCR era.

1992, Sony Repertory, 101 min, Dir: Allison Anders

The acclaimed second feature from writer-director Allison Anders stars Brooke Adams as a single mom struggling to raise two teenage girls (Ione Skye and Independent Spirit winner Fairuza Balk) in a small town in New Mexico. Featuring music (and a cameo appearance) by J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., this heartfelt drama is among the most affecting indies of the 1990s. Edited by Tracy Granger.
