Monster of the Day #194

Today’s monster certainly is a-maze-ing.

(Do you see what I did there?)

    I remember this film as being much better than I thought it would be. Menzes’ direction worked really well.

    Vive la France!

  • David Fullam

    Always wanted to see this one.

    Sir Roger shouldn’t despair, Mr. Toad has got a lot of mileage out of being an aristocratic amphibian.

  • Luke Blanchard

    I’ve long wanted to see this one too. The movie is based on a novel by the Swiss author Maurice Sandoz (a.k.a. Maurice-Yves Sandoz). German Wikipedia has a page on him, but the novel was apparently written in French.

    I saw The Maze once, many years ago, back when the Sci-Fi Channel was young and would actually show cool stuff like this. I can’t remember ever getting a real good look at the giant frog in the movie, but it looks pretty good in this photo. Man, I’d love to see this one again! I’m a Richard Carlson fan, so it’s going to happen!

  • So who would win, this guy or The Fly?

  • Rock Baker

    Put my money on the frog. Unless Glenn Manning is playing…

    The original novel may have been written in French, but there was an English translation I remember reading. It had this neat drawing that was a frog if you looked at it right way up, but if you turned it upside down, it was the head of an old man. I thought the movie was surprisingly good. I wonder if they will remake it one of these days ?
