MoH 210: We All scream for Ice Cream (2007)

Director: Tom Holland

Starring: Brent Sheppard, Maxwell Neck, Tim Henry, Lee Tergesen, Laura Drummond, Colin Cunningham, Ingrid Tesch, Quinn Lord, Lyle St. Goddard, Brendan Saul, William Forsythe

More info: IMDb

Plot: Based on the short story "I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream, for Ice Cream" by John Farris. Telling of a group of young kids who tormented and accidentally killed a local Ice Cream delivery man whose spirit has risen to invoke his revenge on the gang, now all grown up, and their families.

My rating: 6/10

Will I watch it again? No.

OK episode.  It would have been better at a half hour.  Forsythe was fun as Buster the clown.  The ending was satisfactory except it probably wouldn't work as the hero would have needed to add something supernatural to the surprise in order for it to have really worked.  And the kid biting into an ice cream pop and producing a crunch sound was retarded but then we're talking about a clown coming back from the dead, luring children to eat his ice cream pops made to look like their fathers who then melt into a pile of strawberry ice cream once eaten.  I shouldn't look too deep into these things.
