Default Frogs (1972)


Plot
A wealthy man who has been wantonly destroying wildlife in the Florida Bayou finds that a swarm of murderous frogs is closing in on his own mansion habitat.



Yuck! I just saw this weird little film and well I thought it was going to be a complete crap but for what it is I thought it was okay. My only big problem with it is that it's slow and never has a lot of action. Well, I am scared of frogs and I really hate them. I also hate any type of lizards, snakes and all those kind of creatures that this film has. Even though while watching this I was wondering "how bored was I?" it kept me a little interested. It was worth the time and it's not something I would watch again...maybe in 10 years. I think this film deserves a different title because the frogs never killed anybody but other animals did.

Oh god....my ex-girlfriend was OBSESSED with this film, I have no idea why. Let's not dance around the issue and just fess up, this movie is absolute garbage.....and not in the fun, campy, B-movie way. It's just a horrible film.

I used to own this. 5.50 brand new was not a good deal. It is awful and I recommend it to no one.

Movie blows!! I picked it up when I was a kid because of the awesome poster, but was left disappointed and it nearly robbed my innocence.

I hope you burn in hell with the rest of the ewoks for slightly recommending this movie.

It would've been cool if there really was a scene with a giant frog eating someone whole like in those posters. Sadly, I just remember a bunch of tiny frogs that didn't seem to do much more than hop around (though I suppose you could think they were the grand mastermind behind the animal revolt).

Great tagline though: "Today the pond ... tomorrow the world!"

Hard to believe, but the giant bunny movie "Night of the Lepus" is actually much better than "Frogs". At least that had loads of unintentional laughs and is fun and entertaining.

Squirm this was not. Those frogs were not horrifying one bit. Put this in the Night Of The Lepus league as a major missed opportunity.
