Frogs (1972) Review:

Frogs are one of these films (like PiranhaLake Placid or even the mighty Jaws) featuring perfectly normal animals who, for some reason, start killing people in the most horrible ways.

Apart from the latest examples, these films are rarely brilliant, but always highly entertaining. And it is exactly the case here. The best thing about Frogs is to see so many different creature menacing and killing people in a wide range of fashion. Indeed, despite its title, the film does not feature only frogs but all sorts of reptiles, going from the smallest frog all the way to the huge alligator and the flesh-eating turtle.

The downside of the movie is the almost complete absence of real horror scenes. Indeed, most scenes are just alternates of animal shots and human screaming shots, along with very “experimental” music, special effects and camera shots. All this ends up giving something that looks like an animal invasion – but in a cheap way. The only exception is the impressive fighting scene between a man and the alligator!

Overall, Frogs is entertaining enough to be recommended to a large audience.
