"It's the day that Nature strikes back!"
"Today the pond! Tomorrow the world!
"Cold green skin against soft, warm flesh! … a croak … a scream"

Nature has really run amock in this super cheesy environmental horror story where rich people are polluting the Florida wilderness and the animals are fighting back, mostly toads and snakes, with a few lizards also. The frogs don't do much except spoil their picnic with it's American flag cake and jump on top of a guy who somehow keels over and dies from it. Most of the frogs they used are Cane Toads, with a few leopard frogs, also. And all of the frogs sound like Pacific Treefrogs, because that's what they think frogs sound like in the movies. For a movie titled "frogs" it's curious that snakes do most of the killing.
