Did You Know?

Joan Crawford reportedly supplied her own wardrobe for this film due to its very low budget.See more »
Continuity: Trog is wearing a headband with electrodes attached when he goes into his memory flash-back sequence. When he comes out of the sequence, the headband and electrodes are missing.See more »
Dr. Brockton:We believe that Trog could be the connection between the creatures of early civilization and man as we know him today. This Troglodyte who somehow survived is a living reminder of what happened after our ancestors the apes left the forest, and first started to walk on hind legs, and take shelter in the caves.See more »

"get me my hypo-gun!", 8 May 2004
Author: richjamesduncan from United States

and then shoot me with it...this is an absolute howler!! See Joan face down the troglodyte with her "hypo-gun"!!! See Joan's wardrobe of pink, white and tan lab coats!! See Joan bully the troglodyte into submission!......The sad end to a glorious career for sure,but let there be no doubt, it's still the one and only Joan.....kicking troglodyte ass no less. Heck, if I had a murderous troglodyte on the loose, I'd call Joan.............Crawford is quite game with her role as the scientist(?) and maintains a straight face matter if she is tossing rubber lizards to the troglodyte or crawling around in the dark calling out to the TROG! This is a gloriously bad movie. MOMMIE DEAREST was no crueler than this.
