Joan was at least dignified
Why does everyone applaud BETTY WHITE for all the trashy vulgar shows she's doing now that she's in her 90's or whatever. They're totally undignified and demeaning. At least in "Trog" Joan was dignified, well spoken and well groomed. There was really nothing wrong with this movie if you view it with an open mind and not as "Joan's last horrible movie."
Quit while your ahead.
I just saw Queen Bee on TCM. If you want to see Crawford playing the same type of character watch Harriet Craig, made in 1950, when she was playing a role that fit her actual age. This film with Wendell Cory, was as good as Queen Bee was bad. Crawford should have finished with film when she made Baby Jane, with another actress who should have realized they were not no longer femme fatales. Crawford's last fling at acting was as bad as TROG. She tried acting on a Soap Opera, filling in for a main character. Many looked forward to seeing her on day time TV, and she was a horrible flop.
This is the best movie ever made

Just kidding; all the other reviews were probably written by the same person. ;)
Another T.R.O.G. Acronym
- Bruce Reber
It's been over a year since I posted my review of "TROG", Joan Crawford's last (and undisputedly worst) film. In my review, I asked other reviewers to come up with another acronym for the title. Since nobody has yet posted one, I'm offering another one: T is for Terrible, R is for reeking, O is for odorous and G is for garbage.C'mon all you classic film fans who love bashing Joan's totally awful 60's films like I do (with the exception of "Whatever Happened To Baby Jane"), let's see some more T.R.O.G. acronyms posted! If I think of another one I certainly won't hesitate in posting it!
- Bruce Reber
T is for Trashy, R is for Ridiculous, O is for Outrageous and G is for Gross - that's essentially what "Trog" (1970) is, starring Joan Crawford in her final film role. She should have called it quits with "Strait Jacket" (1964). Joan could have ended her career on a way better note than this super bad stinker. She made some truly bad role choices, but this one as a scientist studying a TROG-lodyte (prehistoric man) is indisputably the worst. I've seen it a couple of times, and to me "Trog" is by far the worst horror film ever - it makes "Plan Nine From Outer Space", Ed Wood's 1959 disaster hailed as the all-time worst film ever made, look like "Gone With The Wind" - that's how bad it really is! I'm surprised "Trog" was never lampooned on "Mystery Science Theater 3000", a show I used to watch regularly (how about bringing it back!) It's a shame Joan Crawford's career ended with this piece of garbage after all the really classy films she did early on. If somebody can think of another T.R.O.G. meaning please post in in their review.
Going, going, gone
This film was made at the end of the worst part of the movie stardom of Joan Crawford. It is among the worst films ever made. Other reviewers have already expressed my responses to this horrible film. The only surprise is that it wasn't directed by Ed Wood.
A Vodka Face
"Trog" is where drinking a quart of vodka a day leads to. Shortly thereafter,an early grave. Only a masochist could be a fan of that fate. As she said, "I don't want to be anybody but myself." Well, Miss Crawford, this is yourself. This is the film you chose to end your career with. If that's not a sobbering thought I don't know what is.
Why, oh why?Abominable & pathetic film.Frenzied & aberrant acting by Crawford.
Horrendous: So Bad It's Sad
Miss Crawford must have been out of her mind, desperate to remain a movie star or for money. For a long time before her being a movie star ended, Joan Crawford made terrible choices about what she played in. This film's one among the many. What happened during the era when people like Joan Crawford worked for fortune and fame, glamour and celebrity, once their original appeal faded with age, they didn't have god enough acting skills or the respect of contemporaries in the business to get better roles. There's no sense writing about this film. That would be ludicrous.
Were They Thinking? If so, what?
The addage by camp fans that 'it's so bad it's good' has been debunked. Miss Crawford in this waste of footage provide the primary example of why bad isn't good. In the case of this film, bad is horrid. I wonder if TCM will remove this criticism of Crawford's terrible performance?
PROBABLY JOAN'S WORST, SO BAD IT'S GOOD!
- BRUCE R.
IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I SAW "TROG", BUT I REMEMBER THAT IT WAS SO AWFUL THAT JOAN CRAWFORD ACTUALLY MADE IT WORTH WATCHING. I'VE SEEN MOST OF HER FILMS, AND SHE HAS PROVEN OVER AND OVER THAT SHE COULD STILL GIVE A DECENT PERFORMANCE DESPITE THE QUALITY OF THE SCRIPT OR WHAT TYPE OF ROLE SHE IS CAST IN.THIS WAS JOAN AT HER CAMPY BEST, AND I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT.
