”The appliances may be old, but they have a lot of character” is what Steve and Eileen Bateman (Simonds and McNeal), newlyweds fresh from Ohio, are told when they move into their first New York City apartment. Talk about dramatic foreshadowing: Pretty soon their possessed fridge is eating visitors and spewing forth gore galore. First-time writer-director Nicholas Jacobs’ consistently funny low-budget black comedy, The Refrigerator shows much intelligence and style, with colorful nods to Spanish auteur Pedro Almodovar. B
