Frogs is one of those movies where nothing really happens, yet I still love the film. In short it’s one of those animals get fed up with Humans and take revenge. The title characters are the animal that do the least damage and no matter what camera work is done whether it is close ups or dramatic long shots with lots of disinterested frogs hopping up the garden they just aren’t scary. Maybe mutant frogs with teeth would have worked better!

I really love the tone, pace, locations and characters in the film and the picture quality and sound are first rate.

Easily 5 stars from me.

Bought this for my girlfriend who loves frogs and B-movies, so it was a perfect side gift for her birthday. Personally, I find B movies boring and ridiculous but my girlfriend loved it and I got extra kisses. No complaints :)

It appears pollution has caused critters (not just frogs) to become large and aggressive on an island. To add some kind of irony or meaning to the production our "bad guy" is a trophy hunter(Ray Milland) in a wheel chair. Pickett Smith is a photographer who comes to the island in what will be one of Sam Elliot's lest memorable role. TV actress Joan Van Ark reminds us why a generation was in love with bell bottoms.

The premise of the film is inane. Animals die from pollution with frogs being one of the most susceptible in the food chain. And even if frogs did become hopping mad, an army of heavily armed frogs could not stand up to one kid with a pair of sneakers. Apparently the frogs are the masterminds directing the gators and snakes before becoming their snack.

The film appears to be made for TV in spite of the rating, with credit phrases like "guest appearance." No horror factor involved. Many of the animal shots are stock footage.

The entire film is just so horrendous, so unbelievably terrible that its one of the funniest films I've seen in months. Much better to watch with friends. Its become the highlight of any party now, gathering round the telly at 3am to watch frogs and laugh ourselves to sleep.
Definitely worth watching if you're up for a laugh.

Considering that this was made in 1972 and is about killer Frogs, I wasn't exactly expecting this movie to be scary, but it's actually really good! Although, "Animals" or "Amphibians" would have been a more appropraite title than "Frogs" because, although there is a massive number of Frogs jumping around the island where the movie takes place, the frogs do not actually kill anybody!...although a lot of other wildlife (mainly other amphibians) do.

Although not gory, this movie was very creepy in several places and actually managed to be quite scary. It is a while into the movie before anybody is killed (about 45 minutes) but the begining is built around suspence and charactor development and does not get boring. The ways in which the charactors are killed off are origional and suspenceful and often quite scary.

A rich millionaire (who hates nature) and his family and three servants are holidaying on a private island that they own. A man comes to the island taking picture of all of the pollution and damage to nature they have caused. The millionaire (sorry, I dont remember the charactors' names) isnt too happy about it but invites the man to stay with him and his family. At first we are just shown scenes of all of the frogs and other animals looking manacing but then the attacks begin and the charactors start die die one by one...

Another reviewer said that there werent many scenes of people being attacked by the animals, but there were quite a few (dont want to give away any spoilers but it was about 6).

Recomend if you enjoy animals-attacking-humans moves or thriller/horror's.

Watched this again the other week on a large screen,having seen it on cinema release previously.Now only noteworthy for a pre 'tashe Sam Elliott as our hunky hero.At best an ecological warning but why call it after the least threatening reptile on show? These aren't radiated super mutant frogs just frogs.The stupid characters whom run off alone are killed by snakes and spiders.Even the ending with Ray Millands character falling from his wheelchair,overwhelmed by frogs wouldn't have died at their hands(well legs)- he would have died of starvation/cold but if Sam called the police at next town he should have been saved.As for the blu rays complete lack of extra's, a commentary may have made me fork out for this, is just lazy after all these years.

"Frogs" is a low budget B Movie which is more amusing than frightening. The story concerns itself with the apparent vengeance of large numbers of frogs and other reptiles upon a wheelchair bound old man who has been poisoning the local environment in an attempt to be rid of the annoying wildlife. Snakes, alligators , moving grass (sic) and frogs all manage to bump off his friends and family in this movie. There are actually very few scenes of animals attacking humans in the film , just close ups of the creatures followed by close ups of terrified humans. Special effects are non existent and the acting and dialogue is poor. I found the film to be disappointing and it definitely wasn't up to the standards of "Piranha" , a film I thought it might have resembled.

This is A real Dark and Atmospheric Creature Feature that does Drag at times (or should that be Hops!!!?) but all in all its a Great Horror that uses its Southern,Swampland land scenery perfectly and has a really uncomfortable feel to its Black Humour and Storytelling.

Ray Milland the star of such blockbusters as "The Man with the X-ray Eyes" and "The man with Two Heads" does it again with "Frogs". The filming takes place in and around an 1890s mansion in Florida's Eden State Park.

Jason Crockett (Ray Milland) hates all those creepy crawly critters that have no right to live. He at least does something about it. Well it is his birthday and his creepy crawly relatives are visiting.

It is bad enough that he is confined to a wheel chair but he will soon have some other birthday guests.

Will everyone croak?

The Thing with Two Heads

Ok ok, was dubious about getting this film with all the negative comments but thought hey £3 what the hell! It is actually enjoyable! The plot line is great - Nature versus man- and some good deaths! It is more a film about what could happen, like The Birds. True the frogs don't kill anyone but they seem to organise the others to committ the murders. Good cast and set on a great location. The woman in the swamp was terrifying. True a lot needed your imagination, but still... you never know!
