Frogs is a story [from an original by Robert Hutchison] of Nature striking back at man. Snakes, giant lizards, alligators, quicksand, frogs and toads, savage fish, granddad turtles.

Action takes place on a private island in the Deep South where great-grandfather Ray Milland has gathered his family at the ancestral mansion to celebrate his birthday and the Fourth of July. Instead of the usual joyousness a sense of strangeness pervades the air. Growing numbers of large frogs are beginning to appear, large lizards and strange crawling life are converging onto the estate, right up to the windows.

One by one different members of the family meet their tragic fate through violent attack. In each case it is a frightening finish.

Cast is generally firstclass and Milland’s presence, though comparatively brief, is always commanding.
