Hell Comes to Frogtown

Movie Review: Hell Comes to Frogtown

If there is one thing that last week's review of the spiritless time-waster Wrong Side Of Town taught us, it's that professional wrestlers are generally better off sticking to what brought them to the dance and shying away from the glitz and glamor of Hollywood.  Exceptions to this rule occasionally present themselves, though, as the gallant disposition and natural charisma that a handful of these dexterous grapplers possess demands the kind of exposure that the world of wrestling usually repels.  It's hard to know what to expect going into a movie like Wrong Side Of Town, especially with all of the trickery that went into its advertising campaign ("Featuring WWE Champion Dave Batista"... for ten minutes), but with a film like Hell Comes to Frogtown, you know what you're getting yourself into simply by reading the description on the back of the box -- WWE Hall of Famer "Rowdy" Roddy Piper battles giant mutant frog creatures in a post-apocalyptic wasteland... how could this possibly disappoint?
