Croaker

A giant cursed frog. Strangely, I’m down with this. I’m even OK with Croaker, the movie’s somewhat goofy name. I’ve always regarded frogs as being one of nature’s whoopee cushions as they make really funny disgusting noises when squeezed.

But far be from me to perform injustices on these pond ambassadors, like dissection in school classrooms or experiments with firecrackers firmly jammed where weapons of mass destruction should not be jammed.

But I digress. Croaker is an indie horror move arriving February 1, 2014 with initial distribution secured for Amazon™, iTunes™, Netflix™ and Hulu Plus™. I say good for them.

So here’s what to expect from Croaker, which was shot in Canonsburg, PA: “Four friends. Two brothers. One curse.” Yep, that’s all there is. I’m thinking, though, that the curse is genital warts.

Hard to tell what the frog creature looks like head to flipper. But up front it bears an uncanny resemblance to the frog faced guy in Cirque du Soeil’s Totem. Giant frogs are one thing, but giant frogs skilled in the art of choreographed performance art is a whole new realm of horror. In a good way, though; Cirque puts on some quality entertainment. Just wish I could understand it as I have no idea what a “cirque” is. That’s probably French for “giant frogs rip your face off.”

Told you they were quality entertainment.
