The 1970s were a weird time, as my children love to remind me. The ‘70s gave us The Exorcist, Jaws, Carrie, and a lot of other great horror films, but those just opened the doors for anyone and everyone to make horror movies, some that you’d swear were inspired by drug-induced hallucinations. Remember Night of the Lepus? Willard? Werewolves on Wheels? How about Trog?
Joan Crawford plays a scientist who discovers the missing link is alive and well and answers to “Trog,” short for “troglodyte.” Predictably, the creature doesn’t mesh well with the modern world. This very strange film marked the final on-screen appearance for Crawford; at the time, she probably had some regrets, but today Trog lives on as a wonderful curiosity.
