FROGS (1972)



 Caught this classic animals-gone-wild flick at a drive-in over the past weekend and I think this may be the perfect way to view this film. Watching it before on TV showings, or on VHS, I was never a huge fan but now I feel it's really like a greatest hits of animals-run-amok cinema since it features a bunch of slithering and crawling creatures getting revenge(for the pollution in their swamp-home) besides the titular frogs who mostly only seem to act as the ringleaders of this group of various haters of humanity. Lizards, spiders, snakes and a few others join the fight and their main enemy is a rich scummy fellow named Jason Crockett, played by Ray Milland who you just love to hate here. It is rated PG so nothing gets too gruesome but it's still a 70s PG so it's not like the lame kiddy garbage you get today with that rating. One negative thing is that they lied to me on the poster since there are no gigantic man-eating frogs to be seen, although a cartoon one does show up after the end credits. If you ever get a chance to watch this on a giant outdoor screen definitely go for it!
 Originally released on a  double-bill with GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER which would make for quite the ecologically-conscious viewing experience.
