Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
Based on 11 ratings.
Germany is famous for adapting the novels of Edgar Wallace into some rather decent mystery movies. It spawned a subgenre known as "Krimi" ("Crime") movies. FROZEN ALIVE is roughly 90% krimi and 10% science fiction but the two genres do not merge very well.
Ohio born actor Mark Stevens is a scientist dedicated to proving his theory of being able to freeze living people and then thaw them out safely. He is working closely with assistant Marianne Koch. In fact they are together so often that Stevens' wife (Delphi Lawrence) suspects the two are having an affair. Actually they are not but it would be no surprise if they did; Ms. Lawrence has no interest in her husbands career and seems to have a glass of whiskey surgically attached to her right hand. One night she even crashes into the laboratory waving a gun. Sadly this possible plot enhancer goes nowhere since she is simply picked up by her disgusted husband and carried out.
Mark decides to volunteer himself to be frozen but soon after he goes into the deep freeze his wife is found murdered. Did he do it and take this way out to escape justice? Then again maybe it was the reporter who had been dating Ms. Lawrence on the sly? Or maybe it was . . .someone else! But who? Alas, this movie is so ploddingly directed who won't much care.
The cast is quite good. American born actor Mark Stevens did lots of work in Europe. His final film was LA FURIA DEL HOMBRE LOBO (1972).
Marianne Koch is best remembered by international audiences for A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS. Walter Rilla had a 40 year career in movies and was the father of Wolf Rilla who directed the 1962 classic VILLAGE OF THE DAMNED. Delphi Lawrence is one of those "Hey isn't that what's-her-name?" character actresses who stays in your mind even though her roles were usually small.
