One slightly less relavent point that really bugged me about this film was its lack of anything to do with its setting. Duluth Minnesota is, first off, not a "small town." While not a metropolis like the Twin Cities, it's definitely one of the bigger hubs in Minnesota, and if you're going to set your movie there maybe use a few setpieces other than the waterfront. Also, having lived here 40+ years, I can tell you that our rednecks are far different than your stock Southern Deliverance stereotypes. They, first off, have minimal uses for wifebeaters and baseball caps, living in a region where it's only above 70 a few months of the year, and tend more flannels and ear flaps. They also don't have outhouses on year round dwellings as we spend a majority of the year in the single digits or below. In short, think less Jeff Foxworthy, more Red Green.
Still, this was a minor concern compared to the fact that mutant whatnots seemed to have been the most minor of B-plots in this B-plot family reunion. That said, the film, though a bit ham-fisted in its message, was generally well written, the acting was competent and the plot paced well enough to keep my attention. For something free you could do worse.
It really appeared that when the writer got stuck and couldn't come up with dialogue, he went back to hammering the enviro-whacko issue. That got tiresome fast.
My best guess is a budget of something less than $100K for the entire mess.
The "Killer Frogs" turn out to not be frogs though, and sadly, the one scene with a nearly clear shot of the "killer" critter is not very clear at all.
The premise of the movie is sufficient to work with, however, the writer/director and probably clean-up crew too, James Ojala simply never quite did much with it.
The main character Kim is badly overacting the part of a washed up, has been, one hit pop star 'going home'.
With all of that though, there is one scene which has redeeming value. At 1:33:28 in the timeline, is the best scene of the whole movie. Do NOT miss that!
