    It depends on what causes the fear and the nature of it's 'onset'. If something is, for example, 'frozen with fear', it has just been frightened; the fear caused the freezing. If something was frightened some time ago, and the frozen-ness has gone on for some time, the same thing can be 'frozen in fear' - the freezing is a state that can be explained by a continuing state of fearfulness.
