Ray Milland returns as a topic of discussion on The Assignment: Horror Podcast as the crew looks back at the 1972 eco-horror Frogs. Listen in as the crew hit the hot button topics of the film like-
– Why isn’t there a giant frog eating people like the poster shows?
– Do the frogs actually do any of the work here or do they just sit on their fat lily pads for the entire movie and hog all the credit for themselves?
– Does Jerry know the difference between Louisiana and Florida?
– Where the hell is Sam Elliott’s mustache!?!
1972’s Frogs was an early and then fairly watchable entry in the 1970s ‘nature goes mad’ subsection of the horror genre. Sam Elliott and Ray Milland lead a cast that includes Joan Van Ark, Adam Roarke, Judy Pace, and Lynn Borden as they celebrate birthdays and the 4th of July with bickering, drunken boating, grumpy old men, and serpents, reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids teaming up to pick off our human cast one at a time.
Is it still watchable today? What did Richard think of it? Does Sam Elliott find a shirt that will stay on or find his mustache before the end of the film? All these questions and more can be answered by giving a listen to this week’s episode.
