Hell Comes to Frogtown, 1988.
In a post-nuclear war USA, a fertile man is sent into mutant territory to rescue the last fertile women in the country in order to replenish the human race.
At the end of the 20th century nuclear war has turned Earth into a barren wasteland and rendered most men infertile. However, ex-con Sam Hell (Roddy Piper – They Live) is one of the few remaining fertile men left and is recruited by the government to impregnate a harem of fertile women in order to continue the human race. Sounds like a dream job but the women he must ‘engage’ with are being held captive in Frogtown, which is home to a gang of mutated frog people who don’t take kindly to Hell’s intervention.

Film history is littered with movies that have wound up on the shelf for some reason, either because of financial difficulties or, in the case of The Day The Clown Died, because its director and star decided it was too embarrassing to be released. We've written about all sorts of shelved or cancelled films before, from Roger Corman's infamous Fantastic Four to the unreleased John Goodman comedy, Spring Break '83.
Every so often, though, we'll hear about curious-sounding projects that generate a bit of news before vanishing again. An animated film featuring the voices of Marlon Brando and Brendan Fraser, perhaps, or a modern comedy about old Greek gods featuring Christopher Walken as Zeus.
Here, then, are five strange, star-laden movies that, »
