Storyline

'Hell' is the name of the hero of the story. He's a prisoner of the women who now run the USA after a nuclear/biological war. Results of the war are that mutants have evolved, and the human race is in danger of extinction due to infertility. Hell is given the task of helping in the rescue of a group of fertile women from the harem of the mutant leader (resembling a frog). Hell cannot escape since he has a bomb attached to his private parts which will detonate if he strays more than a few hundred yards from his guard. Written by Rob Hartill

Trivia

The part of Sam Hell was written with Tim Thomerson in mind, but New World demurred. Daniel Stern was strongly pushed by New World, but Stern wanted certain aspects of the character changed. Finally it came down between Roddy Piper and Ed Marinaro. Kizer and Jackson selected Piper. See more »

Forget it Jake, It's Froggytown
10 June 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Rowdy Roddy Piper is Sam Hell the last potent guy in the impotent post-apocalyptic world. Now he, along with Spangle and Centinella (Sandahl Bergman and Cec Verrell respectively) has to save some fertile girls to impregnate from the clutches of mutant frogman Commander Totyor the bomb attached to his junk will go off. While this flick is nowhere near the greatness of Piper's "They Live", it still holds a special place in my heart from back when I was a kid. It's just a fun little movie to pop in every now and then. Rowdy Roddy acts great in this one.

My Grade: B-

DVD Extras: Commentary by the Late Director Donald Jackson and Writer Randall Frakes (if they got Roddy to take part it would've been MUCH better); plus a trailer and that's all

Eye Candy: Cec Verrell got topless, reminding me unfortunately of the dreadful "Inside Out" movies
