Frozen Alive

A man experiments with suspended animation while his drunk wife staggers around with a loaded gun in this not-very-scientific romantic drama. After a dry set-up, some scientific lectures and chain-smoking, the drunk wife throws newspapers everywhere while a masked singer croons. Then there's a bunch of romance and alcoholism. Naturally, tragedy ensues when you've got a toddling chick spilling martinis everywhere who refuses to put down a loaded weapon. Complain all you want, but it's not a spoiler if you knew she was going to shoot herself all along anyway. Unfortunately, accidentally shooting herself in the heart doesn't make this movie very interesting, even when there's test tubes, beakers, buttons, pseudoscience-y knob-twiddling, and boom shadows.
