In 1995, hideously deformed frogs began popping up in Minnesota ponds. Over the next few years, thousands were discovered. Some frog populations were as much as 70% deformed. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency came up with many possible theories for the cause but nothing definite. It was only known as something in the water. In 2001, the U.S. Government pulled all further research funding. The malformations spread to other states and even other countries such as most recently, India and China.

The problem continues…

These true events are the basis for the feature film STRANGE NATURE. It is a horror film and a drama of sorts. The horror of a small Minnesota town struck with this phenomenon as it moves beyond the ponds. The drama and hope of a single mother and her 11-year-old son as they fight to rebuild their lives as the threat of the birth defects and other damaging effects draw nearer.

We believe this is a very timely and important film to be made, involving an environmental issue that has been swept under the carpet for far too long. Though fantastic, STRANGE NATURE does point out the horrifying possibilities of letting something like this go by the wayside.

Starring Lisa Sheridan, John Hennigan, Stephen Tobolowsky, Carlos Alazraqui, Tiffany Shepis, Bruce Bohne, David Mattey, Justen Overlander, and Jonah Beres.
