DC 9/11: Time of Crisis (2003) (part 2 of 2)

So here we are, five years later. And yeah, I know that as far as websites go (and even as far as websites making fun of bad movies go), this one is pretty insignificant. But I felt it was appropriate to reflect upon the fifth anniversary of 9/11 in my own way. And while other sites will revisit the memories, the horrors, the highs and lows, here at the Agony Booth, I can think of no better way to mark the occasion than to review the single worst film ever made about those events: DC 9/11: Time of Crisis.

Frog-g-g! (2004)

In this low-budget homage to/satire of ’70s “nature run amuck” horror films, contamination of a small town’s groundwater causes a tadpole to grow to huge, mutant proportions and become the Frog-g-g!, a latex-suited monster with the genetic need to mate with human females. And, I should add, this reviewer is one of only a handful of people not directly involved with the movie to have actually seen it.Yeah, I know. I could say the same thing about a lot of the movies on this site. Easy Kill comes to mind, as does Night of Horror. But what makes Frog-g-g! special is that I caught it at an exclusive midnight showing in Hollywood that was attended by many of the people who worked on the movie.

The Island (2005) (part 3 of 3)

I was always a little apprehensive about championing the cause of Clonus as being ripped off by The Island, because basically, I hadn’t seen The Island. Anyone could look at the plot outlines and see the obvious resemblance, of course, but I could never really be sure. At least, not until now.The Island is finally out on DVD, complete with a commentary track from Michael Bay. After watching the movie twice and listening to Bay’s commentary, I’m more convinced than ever that The Island is directly based on Parts: The Clonus Horror. In fact, there are several details and plot points in The Island that make absolutely no sense except as an homage to Clonus.
