Actually, freezer spells are quite traditional! They have
developed, via incremental deviation, from African American
beef tongue spells in the hoodoo rootwork tradition. 

In the earliest version, the name of the person you want to
shut up is written out nine times and crossed with the words
"SHUT UP" written nine times, wrapped in red pepper as you
say, "May the words you try to speak BURN in your mouth,"
inserted in a whole beef tongue. The tongue is sewed or
pinned shut, then cooked and you eat the paper. 

In a 19th century African American  hoodoo development, you
place the prepared name paper and tongue in a bucket of
vinegar (to SOUR their speech) and burn candles on it for
nine nights. 

In an early 20th century African American hoodoo
development, you place the prepared name paper and tongue in
a bucket of ice blocks and vinegar and burn candles on it.
The ice keeps it from going bad. 

In a mid-20th century African American hoodoo development,
you douse the prepared name paper and  tongue with vinegar
and place the whole tongue in the freezer to FREEZE OUT
their words.

In a late 20th century African American hoodoo development,
you wrap the name paper and red pepper in aluminum foil (no
tongue), douse it in vinegar and place it in the freezer. 

From there it is a short step to eliminating the red pepper
and/or the vinegar and just freezing the name-paper.
