Cryptid hunters, rejoice! Rotting Press has confirmed release plans for Frogman, a brand new found-footage creature feature based on the real-life legend of the Loveland Frogman. The film, which has earned rave reviews on the festival circuit, comes to VHS on February 9 and VOD + Digital Platforms in the US on March 8, 2024.
Check out the film’s trailer in the player below:
Loveland, Ohio. Home of the Frogman. In the summer of 1999, a 12-year-old named Dallas Kyle captured footage of the mythical creature, but no one believed it was real.
Twenty years later, Dallas, now an amateur filmmaker struggling to turn his passion into a career, returns to Loveland with friends Amy and Scotty determined to obtain irrefutable proof that the Frogman exists. But what starts as an innocent documentary soon turns into a Lovecraftian nightmare as Dallas uncovers the horrific secrets hidden beneath Loveland’s idyllic surface.
Can Frogman read minds? Does he really have a wand? Does Frogman f*ck?
One thing is certain. The croaks are no hoax!
Directed by Anthony Cousins, Frogman stars Nathan Tymoshuk (Kill Me, Teacher’s Lounge), Chelsey Grant (V/H/S/85, Scare Package and Scare Package II), Benny Barrett (Max Bishop, TV’s I Was There) and Justen Jones (V/H/S/85, Dark Cloud).
