Decent b-movie with a sense of humour

Hell Comes to Frogtown is a film that many might label as a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie trying to capitalise on the success of Mad Max. However, many ideas in this film were subsequently ripped off in Mad Max Fury Road!

You have the whole Handmaiden's Tale idea of women being used as slaves to breed. Not to mention there's a character who has a striking resemblance to Chalize Theoron's Furiosa!

Roddy Piper (They Live) plays Sam Hell who's captured by the government and must rescue their female slaves from a mutant frog gang.

While this isn't a great film, it does have a good sense of humour and has a b-movie charm.

Just awful

HELL COMES TO FROGDOWN is an excruciating B-movie comedy in which the heroic Hell, played by former wrestler Roddy Piper, is released from a jail in a post-apocalyptic world and sent on a rescue mission to free a group of beautiful women from the harem of an evil mutant frog-man. Yes, I didn't make that up, that's really what this film is about and it's just as unbelievably cheesy as it sounds.

Like most viewers who aren't wrestling fans, I know really know Piper from his role in Carpenter's likable THEY LIVE. By comparison, he's very poor here, stilted and lacking in charisma as well as acting ability. Not many of the cast are much better, although at least there are parts for welcome actors like biker star William Smith, Nicholas Worth (DON'T ANSWER THE PHONE!), old-timer Rory Calhoun, and the ever-statuesque Sandahl Bergman (CONAN THE BARBARIAN).

HELL COMES TO FROGTOWN isn't even an example of so-bad-it's-good film-making. Instead, this is so-bad-it's-just-bad. You'll struggle not to cringe during the excruciating seduction scenes between Piper and the women, and laugh at the frog men costumes. There isn't even much action here to enjoy, just lame comedy and endless inanity. It's a bomb.

Make Me Wanna Croak

Whelp, I can see where Mad Max: Fury Road got ALL of its ideas.

It's a porn disguised as a post-apocalyptic movie camouflaged as a comedy. And yet, some of it actually made me laugh plus some of the movies/TV series it was playing homage to actually worked. But, really you shouldn't see this.

I just finished watching it and let me see if I recall the "plot." I guess there were 1 or 2 nuclear wars that made fertile women scarce and I guess frog/toad/snake hybrids quickly evolve. Overweight Roddy Piper (RIP) must pretend to be menacing while aiding two porn chicks into saving the other ripe chicks.

Like I said, some of it, unabashedly worked, but overall, it's so low- budget, silly and hard to figure out what genre it wants to fit in, it's a tough watch. Especially when the frog men and women enter in about half-way through.


Final thoughts: Oh, okay, that all said, I'm sure it wanted to be a comedy and parody of the other post-apocalyptic films. But it mostly came crashing down on itself with too many clich├ęs it claimed to mock.
