Bijou After Hours presents: 'Trog'

Anthropologist Dr. Brockton (Joan Crawford) believes she has discovered the missing link in this flat science fiction drama. The creature is found in a cave and brought to her laboratory to undergo tests for her research. The hairy beast with the face of a monkey loves classical music and hates rock and roll. When one of the slack-jawed yokels opens his cage, he escapes and goes on a killing rampage as he tries to return to his cave. In a gentle moment with a little girl, the beast shows a tender side that recalls a scene from Frankenstein. Soon troops are called in, despite Brockton's protest, to entomb the creature by dynamiting the entrance to the cave.

“I admit it: I have a soft spot in my heart (and my head) for the stupefying, inexplicable 'Trog.'” —Commercial Appeal
