Treatment 87 – Frogs

This week, we celebrate our liberation from the Billy Zane theme by having a special guest join us! Yes, it’s raconteur, critic, and quipster extraordinaire, Mark Prindle! He joins our pathetic podcast (for reasons that are entirely unfathomable) to discuss his film of choice!

FROGS!

Yep, it’s another killer animal movie from the seventies. The twist is that, this time, the animals aren’t ebiggened or particularly evil…they just enjoy a group of particularly clueless victims! It has a pre-moustache Sam Elliott, Ray Milland (a.k.a. Rainbow Man) and a whole lotta frogs (which are actually toads).

THRILL… as Mark brings up Buffalo Springfield, The Creation, and many more somewhat obscure bands!!!

GASP… as Matt sings a self-penned tribute to Rainbow Man, and asks for Mark‘s review!!!

CROAK… as Doug brings back some old impressions to try and impress our guest!!!

As always, this week’s movie is available on Netflix to watch instantly. Incidentally, we expect it to be the number one streaming movie tonight! You can also find Frogs to rent digitally or as a DVD from Amazon. You can find both in our store. Also, be sure to rate the podcast on iTunes, please!

Next Week: We head back to the 80s, with a star-studded classic, RED DAWN!

  1. YOU PEOPLE BETTER NOT SCREW UP RED DAWN IS ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS RINGLER THE FACT THAT YOU DIDN’T KNOW WHAT RED DAWN WAS PUTS YOU ON NOTICE

  2. As silly as “Frogs” was, when we were kids and saw it in the theater, my mom had to take my little brother out into the lobby because he was so scared. I think it was the poster that scared him more than the movie. Since it came out in 1972, I would have been five, and my little brother was two. They had the poster hanging in the lobby of the theater, and he started getting scared when he saw it. I have the movie on DVD now, but I haven’t been moved to watch it, even after listening to you guys talk about it. Anyway, love the show. And Matt does sound a little high most of the time, but I think that adds to his charm. I first heard him on an After Movie Diner promo, and his slow, confused delivery made him very memorable.
