  1. Nice review! I agree about having a long list of not-so-guilty pleasures, so there’s no shame in liking Frogs. Like you, I never really found the frogs (or toads) particularly menacing. I thought of the titular amphibians as overlords or a Greek chorus, overseeing the human carnage.

    Thanks for participating in the Nature’s Fury Blogathon!

  2. Ah, that tiny to not so tiny creatures on the rampage phase in the 70’s… This flick, Squirm, The Swarm, Phase IV, Kingdom of the Spiders, BUG!, and so forth and so on. Not perfect, but I’d spend a day in front of the tube with them for sure!

  3. I found some old boxes a few years ago at my parents place. There were some ceramics packed in newspapers. I found the old newspapers more interesting than the ceramics. One of them was wrapped in the movies page. One of the ads was for a drive-in & it was touting Frogs as one of the features. It was this discovery that eventually inspired me to create my blog, The Midnite Drive-In. True, I still haven’t seen the actual movie that was the inspiration for my blog, but with Ray Milland, I need to seek it out. Good review.

    • Thanks! I remember the original television trailer. I may have seen this in fact at the Twin Hi-Way Drive In in Pittsburgh. Like your blog! I’ve read it quite a few times and just followed it.


  4. Awesome review! Made me chuckle and as a fellow fan of ‘movies I really shouldn’t love’, I certainly understand where you’re coming from 🙂

    Great choice for Nature’s Fury too and my grandad is terrified of frogs (in passing)

  8. Dear Blogferatu,

    Hollis Irving is indeed the spirit-and-image of Bette Davis in “Hush… Hush, Sweet Charlotte,” particularly in the black-and-white picture.

    By the way, I was just wondering if you know whether or not you’ll be able to participate in the “Singing Sweethearts Blogathon.” If you find that you will be able to participate, please let me know so I can put you down on the roster! I believe I mentioned it to you in a previous comment, and I would like very much to know if you will be able to participate.

    As I said in my last comment, even though this seems like an unlikely topic for you, I would love to have you write about “The Phantom of the Opera.”

    Please let me know if you can participate. The blogathon is drawing near, and I have few participants, so I would greatly appreciate a contribution from you.

    Many thanks and good wishes!

      • Dear Blogferatu,

        I’m very glad that you’re going to write about “The Phantom of the Opera,” since it is a very good film. I have only seen it once, but I found it to be very deep and meaningful. I’m looking forward to your article very much, and I will put you down on the roster right away!

        Thank you very much for your support and participation!
