Overview

Hell Comes to Frogtown is considered one of the great midnight films by B-movie connoisseurs. Featuring the talents of Roddy Piper and Sandahl Bergman, Anchor Bay has put some decent time and work into this small yet fun title. Presented for the first time anamorphically in 1.85:1 widescreen, Hell Comes to Frogtown looks about as good as it's probably ever going to get. Though the image was often grainy, the transfer retains a nice look that should surprise fans of the film. Featuring bold colors and dark blacks, Hell Comes to Frogtown is leaps and bounds above the VHS copies floating around in video stores. Audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround and its quality is very middle of the road. The track is nothing spectacular, but even with its imperfections, the dialogue, music, and effects are always clear and concise. Hell Comes to Frogtown also features two small but fun supplemental features. The first is a commentary track by director Donald G. Jackson and writer Randall Frakes. For fans of the movie, this will be an indispensable track filled with information and behind-the-scenes stories. Both men are very chatty and genuinely enjoy the movie they've created. The second feature is a theatrical trailer that definitely doesn't take itself too seriously. Anchor Bay has done a wonderful job on this disc and should be commended for putting forth so much effort on such a low-budget title.

Hell Comes to Frogtown 2.5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.

This is one of the worst movies ever made. Bad acting, bad special effects, BAD script. A must OWN for the descriminating collector of B movies. Sandahl Bergman is super sexy and Roddy is as cliche as he can be. NON STOP LAUGHS (from the lack of budget) Ranks right up there with Plan 9 From Outer Space

Hell Comes to Frogtown, oh, can i count the ways i love you? This movie rocks! With the swanky combination of a pink military vehicle, a kick-bum soundtrack, awesome special effects, and exploding electronic underwear, this movie has it all. The story revolves around Sam Hell, one of the few fertile men on post-apocalyptic Earth. Forced to procreate (yeah, i know, tough job) he, a beautiful 80s nurse and a tough army gal who strokes her gun a lot venture into a reservation of mutant frog-humans. In the ensuing calamity occur some crazy frog bashing and the ''dance of the three snakes'' (which cannot be missed). The costumes are amazing as well; I can't see how the academy missed this one. I gave the film four stars: 1 for Commander Toty, 1 for the pink car, 1 for Roddy Piper's great one-liners, and 1 for being cool enough to use the word Hell in the title. I recomend this movie to anyone who wants to have a good time watching a fantastically funny film. Low budget has produced many a film, but this is the best I've ever seen. And hey, give a ribbit for love!
