Legion ice cream man scene good quality
Ice Cream Man is a 1995 horror comedy film produced and directed by Norman Apstein, in his first and only attempt at mainstream filmmaking, written by Sven Davison and David Dobkin (who later wrote and directed the films Wedding Crashers and Fred Claus), and stars Clint Howard. The film made for an estimated $2 million budget, disappeared quickly after its release, but in recent years has developed a cult following among viewers who see it as an unintentional comedy, and enjoy it for its unintentionally campy production values. Joe Bob Briggs hosted the film on TNT, when it was shown on MonsterVision and Howard made an appearance, discussing the film with Briggs. It was released on DVD in 2004.
In a black-and-white prologue, a young boy witnesses the murder of an ice cream man in a small town. Years later, the boy, named Gregory Tudor (Clint Howard), returns to the town to become an ice cream man himself. He has spent the intervening years in a mental hospital. He kills some people (and a dog) while doing his duties as ice cream man, leading to suspicion from local kids and the police. The ice cream man even goes so far as to mix parts of people he's killed into his frozen treats, making his customers unwitting cannibals.
On October 9, 2014 a kickstarter campaign backed by star Clint Howard was started to fund a sequel entitled "Ice Cream Man 2: Sundae Bloody Sundae" to coincide with the film's 20th anniversary. However the campaign was closed on October 30, 2014 after only 70 backers and just over $4,000 was made, nowhere near the $300,000 goal. However it is stated that the project has not been abandoned and stated that they are looking for a new crowd funding structure and alternative financing for the film.There is no current news on the filming of the movie.
