: ‘Hell Comes to Frogtown was pitched to New World as Mad Max meets Planet of the Apes – only they're frogs!’
A post-apocalyse USA is run by women and humanity is in danger of extinction due to infertility and mutants control the badlands. A prisoner, Hell, is tasked with helping to rescue a group of fertile women from the harem of a frog-like mutant leader. With a bomb attached to his privates he has little choice other than to accompany Spangle on her mission.
June Brickman was credited for makeup & hair; Steve Wang was responsible for the creature effects.
Steve Wang designed the frogs on paper in about ½ an hour. He was totally in charge of that. Even New World thought he was a genius. The sad thing is that when the budget for Hell Comes to Frogtown went from 150K to 1.5 million, Steve Wang’s budget to make the frogs stayed the same. He still did a great job and a lot of people discovered him from this picture. He’s a much in demand SPFX worker and has directed a few pictures himself.
