Few claim to have seen in our primitive past. But when a wild half-man/half-ape emerges TV cameras are there to observe the event and the terror!

    Comments about Trog:

    Just a horrible movie, not much to reccommend here, not even in a so-good-it's-bad vein. High in camp value and piled to the rafters with cheese. Only redeeming feature is that it's a curio of sorts because it was Joan Crawford's last film. Wow, what a sad way to go out.

    The TROG make-up is decent, very similar to 2001's cavemen, but stiffer and less flexible. Also the skin tones of the mask appliance don't match the actor's skin, which makes it practically impossible to suspend disbelief while watching.

    TROG offers yet another, typical scenery-chewing performace by Michael (every performace is ramped up to "11") Gough. All of the characters here are solidly one-dimensional and even a novice of this genre could figure out the poor caveman's fate within the first five minutes. This film is much like Robert Shane's turn in "Neanderthal Man" and a dozen other 1950's era sci-fantasy clunkers, only minus the fun factor. On the plus side, the print WB used for this MOD release has solid blacks and rich colors and is sharp and well-balanced. Worth it if you're a diehard collector of this type of stuff, otherwise casual viewers should probably pass or they'll likely wind up very bored and dissappointed that they spent money on this disc.
