Synopsis
Dana Andrews stars in the ghoulish, sci-fi horror story The Frozen Dead. Twenty years after World War II has ended, members of the Nazi party remain, and they are determined to again rise to power. Having funded German doctor Rupert Norberg’s (Andrews) cryogenic experiments since the war, the party makes it clear that they expect him to reanimate some 1,500 frozen Nazis! Fearful for his life, Norberg continues his research – in increasingly horrific, murderous ways. But when his niece’s (Anna Palk) best friend goes missing, the young woman tries desperately to enlist help from an American scientist (Philip Gilbert) to stop the madness. Andrews took many jobs to pay the bills while trying to make it “big.” His boss at a Van Nuys gas station was so impressed with the actor’s determination that he paid for his acting and singing lessons.

        Comments about The Frozen Dead (1966):

        This movie is one I caught at the local theater as a kid. This throws me back to the days of small theaters in our town that would show movies like this on what they would call double bills. You would get two movies and some cartoons. This is a fun and not to be taken serious horror film. Dana Andrews was probably in need of a check.
        The transfer is good and sound was acceptable. This is one of those films you watch with friends and riff at it constantly and you will have a blast.

              I found the picture quality nice just a few bad frames, and the audio track is " very good".
              WB Archive has done well with "this funny B Movie"!

                  By modern standards this is not a fast moving action fest. It is morbidly funny and has an ending that will leave you unsettled. Poor Elsa's fate is twisted and cruel but we get to see a pretty blond put the kibosh on the nazis last best hope. Creepy fun.

                        Comments about The Frozen Dead (1966):

                        Stalwart Dana Andrews stars as a batty scientist who's under the control of the Third Reich--and a living head that's up to no good. The film plays like a combination of THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE and THEY SAVED HITLER'S BRAIN, and fits smugly into the "Living Head" subgenre of horror films.

                        Warner has remastered the film in its original color palate and widescreen aspect ratio, yielding a very pleasing image.
