Ice Cream Man (1995) - Norman Apstein

Ice Cream Man may look like another throw away, straight-to-video schlock piece. And it just might be. However, it actually has a kind of interesting story to go along with it. The movie stars b-movie icon, Clint Howard in his first leading role since Evilspeak and is the first and only foray into mainstream media by porn director Paul Norman. Another interesting fact is that this movie was sponsored by Converse shoes. 
Gregory is released from the Wishing Well Sanatorium after spending years there. He was originally locked up after going insane from seeing his favorite Ice Cream Man murdered in front of him. Now a free man, Gregory wants nothing more than to make children happy. So he opens the old ice cream factory and becomes an Ice Cream Man. He loves seeing the smiles on the children faces. However, he also wants to chop the kids up and use them in his special flavors. A small group of kids witnesses the ice cream man abduct their friend and they vow to get him back.
