Mamie Eisenhower joins the ACLU
26 July 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I wish to say that "Teen-Age Strangler" was slightly better than most of the movies shown on "Mystery Science Theater 3000", just because of that song "Yipe Stripes"; you gotta admit, it was a cool song. But other than that, every scene with the sniveling younger brother drags the movie down; I mean, what was that guy's problem?! So, as a mildly different take on the leather jacket genre, it deserves to get seen on "MST3K" to get the optimal experience. Aside from Mamie Eisenhower, other famous people cited by Mike (or was it Joel?) and the 'bots are Vivian Vance and Danny Thomas. And I will say that some of those girls are quite hot!
