Directed by both Donald G. Jacksonand R.J. Kizer and written by Randall Frakes, Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988) has a great premise. The world has become a post-apocalyptic wasteland where only a few fertile men and women remain due to atomic fallout leaving the future of humanity uncertain. As a result a provisional government has been set up named MedTech to place a high priority on those that can still breed.
Meet Sam Hell (Roddy Piper), a war hero and a lone wanderer of the wastelands with a reputation. Hell just happens to be one of the few fertile men left on Earth and MedTech need his assistance in repopulating the planet…
Unfortunately for MedTech a group of fertile women under the governments care have been captured and taken as prisoners by an exiled group of mutant amphibians to be used as sex slaves in the wasteland, derogatorily referred to as “Frogtown”. Do I have your attention now?
All attempts to infiltrate “Frogtown” have failed and Medtech are slowly running out of ideas. With no other choice Hell is forced to undertake the role of a mercenary. His mission is to infiltrate “Frogtown” and bring back the women to MedTech headquarters for immediate impregnation. He won’t be travelling across the wastelands alone however and has been teamed up with MedTech employees Spangle (Sandahl Bergman) and Centinella (Cec Verrell). Hell has also been fitted with a chastity device that serves not only to protect his fertility (and Medtech’s investment) but also deter unwarranted behaviour. If Hell steps out of line or tries to escape the group during their mission he will receive a painful shock to his genitals. If he tries to remove the chastity device it will explode!
Hell Comes to Frogtown is endlessly entertaining. With a premise that could have easily been exploited, Randall Frakes light-hearted approach and unique dialogue, brought to life by the immense charisma of “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, has culminated in a film that never takes itself too seriously. The special makeup effects of our mutant amphibian antagonists is surprisingly well done and there is plenty of tasteful nudity on display. Did I mention Roddy Piper’s delivery is unmatched when it comes to dialogue? If Hell is to come to “Frogtown” he is going to do it in style!
