Storyline

Anthropologist Dr. Brockton (Joan Crawford) unearths a troglodyte (an Ice Age 'missing link" half-caveman, half-ape) and manages to domesticate him - until he's let loose by an irate land developer (Michael Gough) to go on a rampage and kidnap a little girl. Crawford's last feature film. Written by alfiehitchie

Trivia

This film is listed among the 100 Most Enjoyably Bad Movies Ever Made in Golden Raspberry Award founder John WIlson's book THE OFFICIAL RAZZIE® MOVIE GUIDE. See more »

Goofs

Under sodium pentothal, Trog "remembers" seeing dinosaurs...impossible, since they went extinct 30 million years before the first ape, let alone the first "ape-man", evolved. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Brockton: We believe that Trog could be the connection between the creatures of early civilization and man as we know him today. This Troglodyte who somehow survived is a living reminder of what happened after our ancestors the apes left the forest, and first started to walk on hind legs, and take shelter in the caves.

"get me my hypo-gun!"
8 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

and then shoot me with it...this is an absolute howler!! See Joan face down the troglodyte with her "hypo-gun"!!! See Joan's wardrobe of pink, white and tan lab coats!! See Joan bully the troglodyte into submission!......The sad end to a glorious career for sure,but let there be no doubt, it's still the one and only Joan.....kicking troglodyte ass no less. Heck, if I had a murderous troglodyte on the loose, I'd call Joan.............Crawford is quite game with her role as the scientist(?) and maintains a straight face throughout....no matter if she is tossing rubber lizards to the troglodyte or crawling around in the dark calling out to the TROG! This is a gloriously bad movie. MOMMIE DEAREST was no crueler than this.
