This is a great horror movie about horror movies. The director Drew Godard said it's "a love letter to all horror cinema." If you haven't seen it you should, so I will try not to spoil it too much, but I do have to explain some of what's happening in the frog scene.

Basically, there's a group of people in white shirts and lab coats who are in control of a giant repository of demons and monsters they use to kill people in order to feed their sacrificial blood to the Ancient Ones, giant gods who live underground. The movie is mostly concerned with a group of the usual stereotypical young guys and girls we always see in horror movies who are spending the weekend at a cabin in the woods in the U.S.A. But we can see on video monitors that there are other locations where monsters are trying to kill people, including Berlin, Rangoon, and a classroom in Kyoto full of Japanese schoolgirls.

In Kyoto, we see a young girl suspended in the air in the classroom. She's apparently some kind of demonic spirit trying to kill the girls. The girls make a circle around her and then she burns up, descending into a bowl. We see a bowl full of flowers. Then the flowers are gone and we see a frog. One of the girls holds the frog saying that the evil is defeated and Kiko's spirit will now live in the happy frog. We later see a monitor that shows that the attempt to sacrifice the girls in Kyoto has failed since nobody was killed.

According to the Cabin in the Woods Wiki page, Kiko (named "Japanese Floaty Girl" in the credits) is a vengeful spirit. She attacks a class of nine-year-old girls who are sealed in their classroom, but they perform an exorcism that binds Kiko's spirit to a frog.
