Episode 34: “Hell Comes to Frogtown”

Welp, this is a weird one, Screenteam. After our last foray in episode 33 on Edge and Lana’s “Interrogation”, the boys all decided to take tiny bit of a break from WWE Studios, and instead treat ourselves to a bit of an acquired taste (but still in spirit of the show). This “critic’s pick” series gets handed off to Corey for a movie where the word “bizarre” is only the beginning — 1989’s Hell Comes To Frogtown, starring the late WWE Hall of Famer, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.

In the near-future, the world has been decimated due to nuclear warfare, leaving the United States a dystopic, barren wasteland. Humanity is facing a population crisis and only one man, Sam Hell (Piper), can help alleviate that. Sent in to a reservation full of amphibious mutant humanoids to rescue eight fertile human women, Sam is joined by Sandahl Bergman as he shotguns and mugs his way through Frogtown. “Strange” doesn’t even begin to describe this as the boys (with show cinephile, Aaron Weaver, taking the fourth spot) get really philosophical about the various themes of this flick, discover frog puns days removed from watching it, and come to terms that MRA red-pillers will be around for a long, long time. Did we mention that Frogtown mutants have three dicks?

Did You Know? The “Dance of the Three Snakes” sequence originally called for Spangle (Sandahl Bergman) to be in the nude. Thankfully, after pointing out the contractual agreement saying she wasn’t obligated to, we instead got way more shots of the General Toty’s three wieners. Nice.

Episode 33: “Interrogation”

Cinephile Aaron Weaver is baaaaaaaaack with the boys on this episode of On This Very Screen as we dive head-first into one of the WWE Studios’ more recent offerings — Interrogation, starring WWE’s Edge and Lana.

In this bungled mess of an 24-style action thriller (that should have been a lot better than it was), Edge plays FBI special agent, Lucas Nolan — an expert interrogator assigned to sussing out a layered terror plot from self-professed terrorist, Patrick Sambongui. Filled with enough secrets and betrayals to make even fans of Basic blush, this movie gets the boys talking about what separates a “mind palace” from a “memory house,” their thoughts on the only neo-Nazi bar in Minnesota, and their take on one of the ballsiest twists  ever seen for a movie on this podcast.

Did You Know? According to IMDB, this movie took eleven days to shoot. Could have fooled us.
