Terror Trailers: Hell Comes to Frogtown (1988)

Aside from professional wrestling, [Rowdy] Roddy Piper has proven himself good at two things in life: kicking ass and chewing bubble gum. Unfortunately he does neither in the film Hell Comes to Frogtown. And really how could you go wrong with that? His name is Sam [freaking] Hell! Its not all bad, though, as there are fair glimpses of gratuitous nudity (thankfully not of Piper) present, but still. Where's the ridiculously overdone explosions, decapitations or eviscerations? Somebody needs to send Hell to Rambo boot camp, now there was a man who knew who to make you bleed.

Overall its not the worst movie I've ever seen, its even "spawned" a sequel or two which is enough to retain its cult classic status, but ultimately it fails to reach even the level of production that Howard the Duck achieved. Piper is essentially the same character as he portrayed in They Live, just with a weaker script, and skinny sexpot Sandahl Bergman (who just tries way too hard).
