See Joan Van Ark battle against killer frogs!
10 August 1999 | by jeff-150See all my reviews

Campy southern seventies style horror flick. See a very young looking Joan Van Ark wear a far out polyester disco number. See killer frogs attack her mansion. See bad, seventies character types like the liberated feminist black chick in the african mumu.
