Should Be Better Known Than It Is
The Ice House (1969)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Ric (Robert Story) is the youngest of twins and works at an ice house where he has it made. He's a good looking guy who he gets a lot of women in bed but when one woman hits him in the head with a bottle it causes him to flip and before long he's murdering women and storing their bodies in the ice house.

THE ICE HOUSE is a rather interesting gem that manages to be quite entertaining throughout its running time. The movie was sold as an "Adults Only" picture and it's easy to see why since there are orgies, full nudity strip clubs, murders and a lot of other things that certainly push this pass your kiddie matinee. If you're a fan of the weird then this one here will be right up your alley!

I must say that I thought Robert Story was very good in the role of the serial killer. Sure, we're not talking Anthony Perkins type of perfection with the performance but I thought he was a lot of fun when he was the normal playboy as well as when he was playing the spaced out killer. His real life twin David Story plays his brother here and I thought the two were fun together. There are several naked ladies throughout the running time and while they can't act they can at least look pretty.

The film has some really campy dialogue that's trying so hard to be groovy and I'd argue that some of the situations are quite funny as well. This includes one woman who jumps in the car not knowing that Ric's "date" is actually dead. There's no gore or graphic violence but that's okay because we do get a really wacky police chase at the end. THE ICE HOUSE certainly deserves to be better known that it is.
