FROGS. 1972

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Fantastic poster artwork. Boring as batshit film. Well, that's what I remember.

The 70s were rife with animals & insects gone mad films. ie: The Swarm, Empire of the Ants, Food of the Gods, Giant Spider Invasion, Piranha, Squirm, Night of the Lepus, Grizzly, etc... If they made 'em, I watched them. Ha! The director George McGowan mostly worked in televison. Which would explain why it was so dull. What were good actors like Sam Elliot & Adam Roarke (I feel an Adam Roarke post coming on soon) doing in this one? One of legendary exotica composer Les Baxter's early forays into synthesised soundtracks. Mostly blips & blurps imitating swampy sounds. Apparently the DVD version looks 100% better than the video & TV prints we've endured. Maybe I oughta take another look. In saying that, the new DVD cover looks pretty shithouse. Have a gander. Original artwork always kicks arse over clean stupid photo montage shit they do.
