Editorial Reviews

Part of the B-Movie Collection from Boulevard Entertainment, featuring 12 of the most kitsch and memorable B-Movie titles ever made. Collect all 12 single titles to reveal iconic spine art work. Hell' is the name of the hero of the story. He's a prisoner of the women who now run the USA after a nuclear/biological war. Results of the war are that mutants have evolved, and the human race is in danger of extinction due to infertility. Hell is given the task of helping in the rescue of a group of fertile women from the harem of the mutant leader (resembling a frog). Hell cannot escape since he has a bomb attached to his private parts which will detonate if he strays more than a few hundred yards from his guards.

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!

This movie is ridiculous. Rowdy Roddy Piper is one of the last fertile men on earth, 10 years after a nuclear war. So, they send him into the mutant reserve to rescue the harem he is supposed to use to repopulate the country with, so they can rearm and destroy the 'enemy', ostensibly the Soviets. The lizards are pretty awesome, this might be the best b-movie of all time. One of my favorites!

Pappy’s Crappy Movies #35

HELL COMES TO FROG TOWN (1988)

Like the rest of the civilized world, my thoughts were with Paris last weekend and so I did not publish a crappy review. This week, an unbidden Freudian subconscious connection compelled me to review a 1980’s post-apocalyptic sci-fi action comedy with the politically incorrect but somewhat appropriate title of "HELL COMES TO FROG TOWN".

Starring professional wrestler/actor “Rowdy Roddy Piper” of WWF fame, this movie could have been the greatest porno ever made… if they had dared go there. Instead we get a highly entertaining, marginally acted, occasionally witty oddity that often has the viewer dumbfounded at what they dared put on the screen.

Set in a devastated world after WWIII, survivors of both sides are scrambling to rebuild their population ostensibly to resume the war and gain victory. Rowdy Roddy plays Sam Hell of the title and yes, he’s going to Frog town. Don’t you just love it when a movie title just lays it all out there?
Speaking of “laying”, most of the population has been rendered infertile by radiation. It seems Sam is one of those men who can still “get the job done” and so he has been conscripted, against his will, to go forth and multiply for his country. He is accompanied by Sandahl Bergman, fresh from playing Ahnold’s main squeeze in Conan, as a nerdy military/medical gal whose mission is to keep Piper pumping away at any skirt they happen to come across in the desert. Piper has to wear a high tech chastity belt, controlled by Ms.

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.
