Freeze is based on the work of H.P. Lovecraft and like most such adaptations, my expectations are not high.
This is because by my reckoning most people that adapt Lovecraft don’t understand Lovecraft (kind of like when Zach Snyder was at the helm of DC’s live action efforts. You could feel the contempt he had for certain characters, particularly Superman).
They get the weirdness, the otherworldliness; what they don’t tend to get is the why, which is the engine that powers the whole enterprise.
That’s why Stuart Gordon’s interpretations of Lovecraft, Re-Animator (1985), From Beyond (1986) and Dagon (2001) are interesting from a visual perspective but never really capture what Lovecraft was really all about.
