Classic Horrors Club – Day of the Frogs

In episode 74 of the Clasic Horrors Club Podcast, Jeff and I descend into the sub-sub-genre of “eco-horror,” which falls beneath the umbrella of “natural horror,” a popular sub-genre of the 1970s. These two films in particular make a great double feature because there not about just birds or rats or snakes or bats taking revenge on humans… all of nature is cranky.

In Frogs (1972), the titular amphibians don’t really kill anyone… or do they? And in Day of the Animals (1977), the most damage is done by our canine friends. Yeah, the movies are flawed. But, man, are they fun!

Don’t forget to check out the video companion on our YouTube channel. Put images to the voices… if you dare!

Coming up next month, we enter a world of shadows as only Val Lewton could bring to life. We’ll talk about the legendary producer and all of his classic films from the 40s, including The Leopard Man (1943) and Curse of the Cat People (1944)!
