Editorial Reviews

"A shocker reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds" (Variety), this amphibious horror flick is teeming with thousands of nasty-tempered creatures that are hopping madand murderous. Jumping with action, suspense, revenge and Southern Gothic charm, Frogs' stars Sam Elliott, Joan Van Ark and Ray Milland are constantly a lily pad away from croaking! Jason Crockett (Milland) is an aging, physically disabled millionaire who invites his family to his island estate for hisbirthday party. The old man is more than crotchety he's crazy! Hating nature, Crockett poisons anything that crawls on his property. But on the night of his shindig, it's nature's payback time, as thousands of frogs whip up every bug and slimy thing into a toxic frenzy until the entire environment goes environ-mental.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Idiotic But Fun "Frogs"! June 10, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
The 1970's were loaded with forgotten films where nature struck back at man because of his mingling with pollution, poison or sheer carelessness ("Grizzly" - Jaws on Land, "Night of the Lepus" - giant killer rabbits), but "Frogs" stands out because it did not take itself too seriously and the cast which was headed by 50's star Ray Milland seemed to enjoy themselves filming it. Ray Milland heads a large family in the south which is gathering to celebrate his birthday. But for some reason the ole homestead seems to be bombarded with frogs and other bayou wildlife, so Papa Milland attempts to destroy them through whatever means he can including poison. Big mistake, it seems the frogs are not too happy about this and along with their reptile friends, including some nasty alligators, pick off the family members one by one. Although at times more hilarious than thrilling, "Frogs" does have a few chills and if you are looking for one of those good old drive-in movie types, this will do the trick. The cast is mainly a mix of B list actors including the usually wooden Sam Elliot, who seemed to appear in almost every other 70's flick. Judy Pace as a kooky clan member catching butterflies is hilarious. Rarely shown on television, (and then it is edited) pick up this nature versus man flick and enjoy.

3.0 out of 5 stars "I still believe man is the master of the world." August 2, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can't believe it...I actually found proof that at some point in his life, actor Sam Elliot did not, I repeat, did not have gray hair...it appears his natural color was brown. I only mention this because it seems nearly every film I've seen him in, he's got those thick, silvery locks. Directed by George McCowan (The Magnificent Seven Ride!), Frogs (1972) stars the aforementioned Elliot (Road House, Tombstone), Academy Award winner Ray Milland (The Lost Weekend), and primetime soap goddess Joan Van Ark ("Knots Landing"), in her feature film debut. Also appearing is Adam Roarke (The Stunt Man), Judy Pace (Brian's Song), Lynn Borden (Black Mama, White Mama), David Gilliam (The Eagle Has Landed), George Skaff (Detroit 9000), and Holly Irving (Glass Houses).

As the film begins we see a man (whom we later learn is named Pickett Smith, played by Elliot) in a canoe, floating around in a swampy area, taking photographs of the local wildlife. Soon afterwards he turns his camera's eye towards all the pollution...damn mankind and his pollutin' ways! We find out later Smith is some sort of freelance photojournalist doing a piece on pollution and the environment, perhaps with the idea of making a difference...which is fine, but I'm thinking if'n he really wanted to make a difference, he could start by actually picking up the trash instead of just taking pictures of it...oh well...anyway, Smith paddles his way out to opens waters where's he promptly swamped by some a-hole and Joan Van Ark in a speedboat (the guy driving the boat was drinking a beer, and I kept expecting him to throw the empty over the side, you know, because man is so thoughtless with his waste, but, surprisingly, it didn't happen).

5.0 out of 5 stars Juicy, Fun Camp Classic! March 28, 2001
Format:DVD
Okay, so having "frogs" as the major killing machine in a movie isn't all that terrifying. But in this very well-made B-movie, the film makers have added all kinds of dangers created by nature. Each of the main characters are destroyed by an avenging Mother Nature. A group of relatives and visitors gather at the isolated plantation estate of Pappy Ray Milland, a sourpuss and snarling SOB if ever there was one. It's great fun trying to predict how each of the shallow characters, except the hunky Sam Elliott will perish. By far the best death sequence is that with Lynn Borden, the older woman who likes to hunt for butterflies. Dressed in a beautiful pink and white summer frock, she's finally done in by snakes, quicksand, vines. She's shown in wonderfully bloody make-up, her hair all mussed, dying in the swamp. Black actress, Judy Pace, is also a hoot, in very 70s mod fashions. Sam Elliott gets to strip off his shirt in several scenes, giving us worshippers of male beauty a cheap thrill. The DVD edition doesn't have any extras but the picture quality is terrific, with all the moist, gleaming greenery of the swamp, dripping with danger, caught beautifully. Milland hams it up but you sense he really wasn't acting. Probably thinking of that Academy Award he received in the 40s for his performance in "the Lost Weekend"--and now performing in a low-budget American-International classic. Cheer up, Ray! "Frogs" is still being watched and enjoyed while "The Lost Weekend" is forgotten, except by old movie buffs and nostalgia addicts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frogs in no way related to Kermit April 20, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
"Frogs', one of the classic "B" movie titles from 1972 has always excited alot of heated debate about whether it's the worst "drive-in" type feature to come out of the 1970's, or whether in actual fact it was a bit ahead of it's time as a clever commentary on man's just deserts for wrecking the native environment with his pollution. I'm sure its envirnmental message was largely unintended but nevertheless I always find viewing this film a creepy experience with its abundance of creepy crawlies just waiting to strike.
Set in the beautiful wilds of the Florida keys, "Frogs", tells the story of aging Chemical Magnate Jason Crockett played by Hollywood veteran Ray Milland who lives on an isolated estate in the keys and who once a year on the 4th of July, which also happens to be his birthday, gathers together his assorted disfunctional family for a big birthday celebration. The entire action of the film takes place over this weekend when after a boating accident the family finds itself playing host to Pickett Smith (Sam Elliot in one of his most remembered macho roles). Pickett is a freelance photographer doing an article on pollution in the area for an ecology magazine and once arrived finds many strange things occuring on the estate where the assorted reptiles and native animals which include snakes of all kinds, lizards, crocodiles, and spiders begin to pick off one member of the group at a time in assorted grisly deaths until Pickett accompanied by granddaughter Karen Crockett (greatly underrated actress Joan Van Ark) sensibly decide to flee the estate reluctantly leaving Jason to a grisly fate at the hands of the rampaging Frogs who invade the house. The final shot of the film which sees all the lights go out in the estate mansion is an errie conclusion.
