The Assignment: Horror Podcast

FrogsRay Milland returns as a topic of discussion on The Assignment: Horror Podcast as the crew looks back at the 1972 eco-horrorFrogs. Listen in as the crew hit the hot button topics of the film like-

– Do the frogs actually do any of the work here or do they just sit on their fat lily pads for the entire movie and hog all the credit for themselves?
