Giant Frog Leaps into Your Nightmares in Croaker
It's been a long time since we've seen a horror movie about killer frogs. Not that anyone was asking for another one, but we're getting it whether we want it or not. Read on for the long-winded plot crunch for Croaker, and get ready to be disappointed by a trailer that features absolutely zero killer frog action. Sigh.
Written and directed by Fred Terling, Croaker stars Valerie Gatto, Marty Patterson, Ron Russell, Josh Dean, Ben Grance, Jimmy Star, Lindarae Schmidt, Bryden McCurdy, Amberleigh Miller, Jennifer Obed, Bob Braund, George Richardson, Barbara Lechene, Tim Gross, Shawn Kelly and Miranda Schry as the creature the Vodnik.
Florian Sirko and his one-time love Macy Patterson face a problem. A curse was originally cast from the attack of Haidamark Cossacks on Nemirov, Poland, in 1648, spawning a mythological creature known as the Vodnik. This curse now plagues the Sirko family, and the citizens of his town are paying with their souls. Macy is of course hesitant to believe urban legend, as is local County Sheriff Ben Cade, who suspects Florian is dealing with the grief of losing his brother in a more sinister way.
Running parallel to the story, George Butler III and Teddy Marsh are two culinary masters of a local greasy spoon diner trying to perfect the art of buffalo frog legs. George inherited the establishment from his Uncle Corey, who was the other boy with Dimi, Florian and Macy on the fateful day of Dimi’s disappearance 20 years prior. George is convinced that a strange, larger than life creature and his frog companions are stalking him and wants payback.
As the two storylines head for a collision, both protagonists realize the only way to break the curse and send the Vodnik back to hell is for it to collect 10 souls. The problem? The creature has its eye on one final soul: Macy.
