"Frogs is a 1972 horror film directed by George McCowan. The film falls into the 'eco-horror' category since it tells the story of an upper-class U.S. Southern family who are victimized by several different animal species, including snakes, birds, and lizards, as well as the occasional butterfly. Nature, the movie suggests, may be justified in exacting revenge on this family because of its patriarch's abuse of the local ecology.
The movie stars Ray Milland, Sam Elliott, Joan Van Ark, and Adam Roarke. Elliott has two 'beefcake' scenes in which he removes his shirt and these scenes reportedly helped earn him the title role in the 1976 movie, Lifeguard. The film was shot in Walton County, Florida, on the Emerald Coast in and around the Wesley House, an old southern mansion located in Eden Gardens State Park in the town of Point Washington, situated on Tucker Bayou off Choctawhatchee Bay.
The film was given a PG rating by the MPAA. In order to keep the rating, the film's end-credits were edited to prevent the movie from receiving an R rating. The basic premise of this movie is simple: people polluted too much, now nature is pissed. Nature, in this case, is represented by a cast of nearly six hundred frogs and toads, as well as a menagerie of snakes, lizards, crocodiles, birds, and tarantulas. But really it's all about the frogs. The problem is, even in large numbers, frogs simply don't have the kind of natural defense mechanisms to thwart the human race. I mean, even if you were to walk into a room and find the floor absolutely teeming with frogs, your reaction would probably be one of curiosity and amusement rather than fright. You're not in any real danger. They have no claws, no teeth to speak of, and they would have to leap on you in the thousands to possibly amass enough collective weight to bring you down and smother you. Frogs just don't have the menace to carry the movie. But nonetheless, 'Frogs' exists."
