Decades of Horror 1970s is partnering with the WICKED HORROR TV CHANNEL (https://wickedhorrortv.com/) which now includes video episodes of the podcast and is available on Roku, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV, AndroidTV, and its online website across all OTT platforms, as well as mobile, tablet, and desktop.

A sympathetic anthropologist uses drugs and surgery to try to communicate with a primitive troglodyte who is found living in a local cave.

 

Special guest-host Dirk Rogers joins the Grue Crew for this episode, picking the much-mentioned, often disparaged Trog (1970) which stars Joan Crawford (in her final film role) and Michael Gough. While the makeup/”mask” of Trog looks fantastic, the rest of the costume fails to live up to the title’s promise, generating more chuckles than gasps. The film is often cheesy and full of plot holes with ample amounts of questionable science; yet, somehow, Trog manages to be entertaining and fast-paced, wasting no time getting to the creature and the conflict between scientist Crawford and the corrupt town asshole Gough. Shenanigans ensue. The Grue-Crew share their thoughts on the film, the cast, and the effects of this early Seventies creature feature.

At the time of this writing, Trog is available to stream from Dailymotion and various PPV sources. The film is available on physical media in Blu-ray format from Shout! Factory.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1970s is part of the Decades of Horror two-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1980s. In two weeks, the next episode, chosen by guest host Jerry Chandler, will be The Ghost Galleon (1974, El buque maldito), the third film in Amando de Ossorio’s Blind Dead quartet of films. Mr. Chandler loves him some Blind Dead! Rest assured he will explain it all.
