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 & 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.

Critic Reviews for Trog
I admit it: I have a soft spot in my heart (and my head) for the stupefying, inexplicable 'Trog.'
Not one of Crawford's finer roles.
Audience Reviews for Trog
The good: the ultra professionalism of Joan Crawford even in dreck like this and some pretty views of the English countryside and a small village. The bad:everything else in this terrible movie.More
What a way to go. In Joan Crawford's last film, she plays a scientist who discovers and befriends -- in the interest of science -- a prehistoric man, This thing is godawful. But when I saw it I was with a similarly smartass bunch of friends and we had a blast laughing at it. Joan, a star of your magnitude doesn't deserve to end her career like this. But then again, you're a child abusing monster. Maybe being cast in this was payback for the bad karma you built up.More
This doesn't get three and a half stars because it's a good film. It gets three and a half stars because it's so bad that it's actually fun to watch. You have to give Joan Crawford credit, even with this material she gives it her all. What a trooper!More
