Wow. Just the preview has some of the worst dialogue I've ever heard.

So it's a rip-off of The Birds and Squirm?

Mr. Doob said...

oh no. Not a Birds rip off at all.

Frogs is completely unique in it's bad acting, forced "tension" & groovy poster.

I remember laughing at this movie when I was a kid.

ah youth...

"Frogs is coming!"

I "are" scared yet somewhat amused, especially by the lousy quote at the beginning of the trailer.

Hey now, what is this, Minority Report? Poor Frogs seems to have been convicted before we even see if it's guilty or not.

Ah, who am I kidding. It's ridiculous. But it might still be fun.

The battalion of commando attack frogs at the end of the trailer do it for me. What, do they ribbit the poor guy to death? :)

EegahInc said...

Hi niall, thanks for dropping by. I guess you couldn't resist Frogs since your blog indicates that, after all, You Are Kermit :)

You know, ribbiting him to death would have made more sense than what actually happens.

The old guy in the wheelchair wouldn't happen to be a white supremacist, would he?

Just curious.

Supremacist... probably not. Annoying bigot who prefers his minorities making his dinner rather than sitting at the table with him... definitely.

Frogs is #1 on Bruce Campbell's list of the 10 worst horror flicks. He comments,"Ray Milland must have owed the government back taxes."

Hi Fr. Erik,

You know, it's both flattering and frightening that a member of the clergy reads this blog. (Especially one recently ranked as a NERD GOD!) Oh well, it's nice to know someone's around to keep armchair theologians like me honest.

Poor Milland. He's quoted as saying that "The greatest drawback in making pictures is the fact that film makers have to eat." I wonder if you can get plenary indulgences for starring in things like Frogs or The Thing With Two Heads?
