Are my frozen VHS videotapes ruined?

I have all the VHS videos in an unheated storage location. Outdoors, during a frozen Minnesota winter. Well, that is better than melting them --- melting and heat would surely ruin them. Are they also runied by the cold end of the temperature spectrum? Or, if I let them thaw out to room temperature again, will they be OK?
