Meet Sam Hell. Life for this poor guy has never been the same after the world fell apart. Before the apocalypse wiped out most of humanity, Hell was just another bloke trying to make it with the ladies. After the end of the world, he suddenly found himself in great demand. Why? Sam Hell has the unique distinction of being one of the only-if not the only-men on the planet capable of fathering children. This ability is a big deal in a world where fertility is a highly prized commodity for both men and women. Radiation rendered most of the lads and lasses incapable of bearing children, so if the human race is to once again thrive and eventually rebuild the planet, the right man must meet the right women. Besides, our side needs more children so they can raise good little soldiers to continue fighting the Russians (or whoever it was who turned America into a desert). Fortunately for this barren world, and for lovers of low budget trash cinema, Sam Hell just happens to be former wrestler turned actor "Rowdy" Roddy Piper. I can sleep better at nights knowing Piper made more films before and after his memorable turn in Carpenter's "They Live."
Hell's adventure begins when a group of scientists working for something called Med Tech (or some such thing) save his life from a sadistic soldier, a Captain Devlin (William Smith), bent on killing the fertile fool. It seems Sammy impregnated this guy's daughter and attempted to mosey on down the road, something the soldier finds reprehensible. As part of the bargain for rescuing Hell from an early demise, Med Tech insists that he sign on to a most peculiar mission. He must rescue a bevy of fertile women from the clutches of humanoid frogs.

Pro Wrestling's "Rowdy" Roddy Piper makes his second film appearence in this silly but fun Sci-Fi adventure. Roddy is one of the last fertile men left on a post-appockolyiptic earth. He is captured by an all fremale scince group who forcew Roddy to impregnate all the fertile wild women they come across, and while not in action, roddy is forced to wear an explosive coddle belt (to prevent him from escaping). Guess what happens if Roddy (Hell) gets farther away than a specified distance to the Science group's van? One of the important women to the science group is captured and held in Frogtown (a town full of half human/ half amphibian mutants), and now Mr. Hell must penitrate the main group of mutants to save her. Actually, this movie is a lot more entertaining than it sounds. As expected, it is a low budget sterling flick, but it's vastly entertaining in it's action and humor. If you've nevver seen this film, it's worth seeing at least once. If you liked "They Live", Roddy's other film, buy this one. It's an underground classic!

Actually I got to participate for 3 days in the shooting of this fiasco.

I was one of the frog guards (not credited). I got to meet Rowdy Roddy Piper who was very friendly and Sandahl Bergman who asked me where she could get some coffee. The frog puns were flying a mile a minute on the set and some were unbearable. Also note the green beer made of 7-up and Palmolive. Three nights in a warehouse was too much for me and I refused to continue in a heavy frog costume in Death Valley in May-June of 1987 even though they promised me a credit.

HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN is a little seen gem. After nuclear war, almost every man on the planet is impotent and frogs have grown to human size. One of these frogs, Commander Toty, has kidnapped some fertile women because of their value to humans. Sam Hell (Rowdy Roddy Piper) has the highest sperm count of any man on the planet and he is called in to save the women from Frogtown and get them pregnant. The DVD of this film is good, but doesn't have nearly enough extras. The trailer, production notes booklet and commentary (by Donald G. Jackson and Randall Frakes) are good but this release could've been helped by more extra material.

It's already been said by everyone else. This movie is so bad its good. I bought it for 3.99 on a closeout rack. In the DVD menu they even mis-spelled the word "start," as in "STRAT movie" and how can anybody not love Roddy Piper from "They Live" fame?

But whatever you do, do NOT pay the 22 dollars these shmucks want for it. Unless of course you bought "Jackass: The Movie" or "Freddy vs. Jason". Then, well, go ahead. You deserve to be ripped off.

The plot is... Well, it's what it is, but it's the best type of plot for every movie about Hell coming to Frogtown: it's an excuse for every filmed scene to work.

And this Hell is Sam Hellman, the toughest, roughest, and... well, happiest (darn it!) Hell to ever visit this Frogtown or any other.

If you do not love the following, this may not be your favorite flick in the West: ladies, nudity, tough guys, loads of smack-down violence, then more violence, and some more besides, plus some humour and a wee bit of tenderness. (Yes, just a wee bit, really, it's not too bad that way...)

The Frogboys don't know anything about the plot, and they really never get involved, but that's not their place. The ladies come across the plot a bit, but at least clothing gets lost along the way. And Sam Hell? Well, he goes where he's gonna give what he gots. He's like that.
