Rest in Peace: Mike Vraney

While his name may not jump out at you at first, I can promise you that Mike Vraney was an important part of just about every horror fan's life, and unfortunately he's been taken from us far too soon. Vraney, the founder of Something Weird Video, has passed on at the age of just 56.

In Memorium Mike Vraney Founder of Something Weird December 29, 1957 to January 2, 2014

We regret to tell you that Something Weird’s founder, Mike Vraney, passed away on January 2, 2014 after a long heroic battle with lung cancer. He was 56 years old, way too young to leave this planet. There was still so much Mike wanted to do in his life, so many films to be found, and adventures to be embarked upon.

DVD Review - Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (1996)

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie, 1996.

Directed by Jim Mallon.

Starring Michael J. Nelson, Trace Beaulieu, Kevin Murphy and Jim Mallon.

Synopsis:

Mad scientist, Dr Clayton Forrester has concocted a diabolical scheme for world domination, to subject the human race to the worst movies ever made. This time it’s the classic 1950's B-Movie This Island Earth.

When I was about 14 I once stumbled upon a little film at 1:15am named Mystery Science Theatre 3000: The Movie. While I never forgot the name, I never saw it again or found it on DVD. A couple of years later it was on TV again at around the same time, which I recorded, so the only version of this film I’ve ever owned is a VHS copy taped off TV. When I got the Internet I discovered that the film was based off a TV show that had been running for years.
