Trog is a 1970 science fiction horror film directed by Freddie Francis and stars Joan Crawford as Dr. Brockton, a renowned anthropologist who discovers a prehistoric troglodyte living in a cave in rural England. Michael Gough and Bernard Kay also star in supporting roles. The film opens with a group of spelunkers exploring a cave in rural England. One of the explorers falls into a crevice and discovers a prehistoric troglodyte. The creature attacks the man and kills him. The police are called in to investigate and the troglodyte is captured and taken to a lab for study.

Dr. Brockton is intrigued by the discovery and begins to study the troglodyte, whom she names Trog. She believes that Trog is the missing link between humans and apes and hopes to use her research to prove her theory. However, Trog proves to be difficult to study as he is aggressive and prone to violence. The lab staff also struggle to control Trog as he grows stronger and more dangerous.

Dr. Brockton plans to present her findings to the scientific community at a conference, but Trog escapes from the lab and goes on a rampage. He attacks and kills several people in the town and causes chaos. The town is put on lockdown as the police and lab staff try to capture Trog.

As Trog continues to cause destruction, Dr. Brockton becomes more conflicted about her research. She realizes that Trog is not just an animal to be studied, but a living being with emotions and a sense of self. She begins to develop a bond with Trog and sees him as more than just a specimen.

The film builds to a climactic finale as Trog is hunted down by the authorities. Dr. Brockton must make a difficult decision regarding Trog's future and her own work. The ending of the film is poignant and emotional, leaving the audience with much to ponder.

Trog is a classic science fiction film that features a strong performance from Joan Crawford in one of her later roles. The film tackles complex themes such as scientific ethics, animal rights, and the relationship between humans and animals. Trog's design is also impressive, with the costume and makeup team creating a convincing prehistoric creature that is both frightening and sympathetic.

Overall, Trog may not be for everyone, but for fans of classic science fiction and horror films, it is definitely worth a watch. The film's themes and surprisingly moving ending make it a standout in the genre.
