3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable B-movie, 24 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hell Comes to Frogtown [DVD] (DVD)
'Rowdy' Roddy Piper stars as Sam Hell...who comes to Frogtown. See? It does what it says on the tin! Anyway, Hell is one of the last virile men on our post apocalyptic planet. His mission? To impregnate women and restart the human race! The catch? Said women are being held hostage by huge mutant frogs AND if Hell decides on a bit of pre-rescue nookie, his codpiece explodes...

This ridiculous film from 1988 has always been one of those cheesy, brain-dead delights. It requires nothing of the viewer for 88 minutes. You don't even have to think very hard (if at all) as the 'plot' is so scarce that the film gets by on its good humour alone and some so-so special effects. Roddy Piper is his usual self, the women are scantily clad, it has huge randy frogs in. What more do you want?

Is this Dvd Widescreen?

In reply to an earlier post on 6 Aug 2010 19:27:18 BDT
Yes, it is!
It is NTSC, region 0, widescreen, excellent quality, and includes a trailer and a commentary with the writers.
Looks like it's the same as the Anchor Bay version.

Bizarrely, Frogtown, along with Slugs, The Stuff, Elvira and Return of the Killer Tomatoes are all straight copies of the US Anchor Bay versions, even down to having the extras and the FBI warning at the beginning!

To my 'amazement' - Hell apparently spawned two sequels! No idea if Roddy Piper starred or not, but there you go...
