    This one looks like a killer release! I love when Bill is mean.


  2. Peter says:

    Awesome, just awesome! Downloading tonight!


  3. WeatherServo9 says:

    Is this the sequel or the prequel to Future War?


  4. Bat Masterson says:

    Parents beware – not one for the young’uns.


  5. Neptune Man says:

    #3: Both.

    Okay, does anyone know who, besides Bill, is writing the website episode-description copy these days?
    The attention-deficit-disorder tone, butterfly-flitting here and there between things that don’t really have much to do with anything, could be just some high-school kid on a temp job, but if you’ve read Bill’s columns…

    (We seem to be off the “Weird Uncle” comparison kick lately, but the new insistence on pointing out what failed bands were popular the year the movie came out sounds a little….familiar.)

    As someone who actually has and understands ADD, I’m a bit insulted by some of the implications of #6.

    Also, if you had to write a distinctive, amusing, memorable, concise description for hundreds and hundreds of films and shorts, you’d eventually start to suffer from some creative stagnation too, you judgmental hack.

    I’ll agree that those descriptions vary quite a bit in sophistication and impact, but with a very wide audience to serve, there has to be some degree of keeping it toward the lowest common denominator. It doesn’t have to be brilliant, and it doesn’t have to suit the tastes of MST3k fans. It has to be tailored to a wider diversity of tastes.

    And that they do admirably. I know that I and several friends, with widely varying tastes, all got a kick out the description on “Mesa of Lost Women” (for example). Nothing notably poor about the writing in these things, considering that they’re just brief product ads to begin with.

    Now take your character assassination elsewhere.

    I love the RiffTrax movie summaries. They remind me of the concise, unpredictable snark of the ACEG.


  9. ptomreeves says:

    Rifftrax summaries funny. Me laugh and get. :P


  10. ptomreeves says:

    Also I agree with an earlier comment. When Bill gets angry at a movie he gets funnier. RAGE ON BILL!


  11. Bigzilla says:

    Looks awesome, but please release some DVDs! They’re my only option right now!


  12. Neptune Man says:

    #6: You’re an ugly little dummy, aren’t you Eric J-O? An ugly, smelly, horrible little dummy, stuffed with sawdust,a dummy who will never get any ham, certainly not unless he gets it himself. Not only can’t you have ham, you can’t have any luncheon meats. Not bologna, or ferrenja, not even cotto salami. Why? Because luncheon meats make the sawdust in your stomach explode.


  13. losingmydignity says:

    Me, I’m just happy the riffs keep coming.


  14. One, two, three, four, I declare a flame war!

    You over there– your hobbies are weird and unpopular. You there, next to him– you have bad taste in music.

    Oh, I see you, with the hat and t-shirt– I don’t like the way you almost snort when you laugh.


  15. Troy says:

    What, no Disembaudio over the closing credits power-ballad?!? How is that even possible??
    Still, I suppose the constant stream of David Carradine masturbation jokes sort of makes up for it.

    Seriously though, I think this is probably the funniest VOD title they’ve released since Planet of the Dinosaurs. There’s just something about nonsensical low-budget 80’s action movies which makes them the perfect riffing material. If it wasn’t for the titties and swearing, I could have easily seen this one playing alongside Future War and Time Chasers during one of the later SciFi Channel seasons.


  16. lancecorbain says:

    Ditto #11-put it on dvd, I will happily buy it! From you, Rifftrax! Full Price! Not from Amazon! I promise!! Pretty please!!!!


  17. Dr. Carlo Lombardi says:

    Another Rifftrax… in time for pizza Friday. I like how they are releasing these movies to my schedule.


  18. bad wolf says:

    At least Rifftrax keeps the NSFW elements intact. CT’s censoring of Frankenstein’s Castle of Freaks was just pointless.


  19. Johnny says:

    Yeah, I was pretty suprised about that.

    BREASTS :clap:


  20. The thousand-meter Squirm.

    The Skull toss.

    (If I’m permitted to go with a different angle)


  21. losingmydignity says:

    Eh, MSTed movies had boobs n’ cussin’ too. They were just edited out. It’s not like they’ve riffed Behind the Green Door.


  22. hellokittee says:

    Just watched this one and I am left with one burning question, how did they not notice the villain’s resemblance to a more well put together Zap Rowesdower?


  23. Neptune Men says:

    I’m intrigued about the copyright status of this film. Isn’t realtively new to be in public domain? I don’t know how the copyright law works in America (Hell, I don’t know how does it work in my own country, or if it works at all).


  24. Sharktopus says:

    As I understand it, the length of American film copyrights are directly proportional to the budget of a distribution company’s legal division.


  25. pimpampet says:

    “Like Cola!”


  26. schippers says:

    #21 – Hey, you stay away from my Ivory Soap.


  27. Sani says:

    Leaving the flame war aside for a moment…

    I thought this was hilarious, and I’m glad RiffTrax is doing more of these cheesy VODs. Not that I don’t also like the blockbuster MP3 syncs, but these are more MSTie-ish, if you will. I did wonder, though — why did they censor their own riffs, but not the swearing in the movie?
