What was she thinking?
12 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Poor Joan Crawford, she had a brilliant career that spanned what 50 years and then she is reduced to this crap? She must have been drunk, desperate or both to get involved in this mess. I think poor Joan just literally had a death grip on her fame and wouldn't give it up. She couldn't stand not to be a *STAR*, but if one has to star in a movie such is this, it's time to call it quits. The storyline is basic, Joan plays an anthropologist (can you even believe that?) who helps to discover the missing link, TROG as she affectionately calls him. The movie is so lame, the killings are not scary, Trog running amok across the English countryside, frightening children (and the viewer with this insanity)on a playground, Trog reacting violently to jazz music if you can believe it!!!!! And so on and so forth....it campy and unintentionally funny to see Joan play "catch" with TROG!!!! If you want a good laugh watch this movie, but if you want to remember Joan Crawford as "Mildred Pierce" avoid this movie like the plague.
