Episode 79: Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988)


It's good to know that after the bombs fall and half of the world is mutated into weird, pervy amphibians, we'll have someone like Rowdy Roddy Piper to repopulate the planet with his incredible sperm - or at least, that's the way things go in this week's pick, 1988's post-apocalyptic, post-consent fever dream Hell Comes to Frogtown. Here's a question for you listeners, why would frog-people have an entire city in the middle of the desert? Wouldn't that be terrible for creatures that have evolved to live in both water and on land? We have more questions, but few answers, so come share our bewilderment this week on Horror Movie Night!
