Frogs

Tagged: Film

Film (1972). American International. Directed by George McCowan. Written by Robert Hutchison, Robert Blees. Cast includes Lynn Borden, Sam Elliott, Ray Milland and Joan van Ark. 90 minutes. Colour.

A cheerful exploitation movie, its director's debut and part of the 1970s Revenge-of-Nature boom (see Monster Movies), Frogs is a rather well made Ecological fable in which upper-crust layabouts living on a bayou are disposed of by frogs, spiders, leeches, snakes and snapping turtles (all normal-sized, but in large numbers), apparently as a payback for Mankind's ill treatment of Nature: a sort of amphibian The Birds (1963).
