New Photo of Felicia Day and Patton Oswalt in Mystery Science Theater 3000

A few weeks ago we got our first look at the new cast of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 revival series. Today we have a new photo that focuses on Felicia Day as Kinga Forrester, who is the daughter of the original mad scientist Clayton Forrester, and Patton Oswalt, who plays the Son of TV’s Frank.

Netflix picked up 14 episodes of the series, which was crowdfunded on Kickstarter. They raised $5.7 million during their funding process. The series will premiere on Netflix on Friday, April 14th.

While we wait for the series to return, Netflix is currently streaming 20 episodes of the original series. Those episodes were revealed to include:

Catalina Caper

• Eegah!

Future War

Blu-ray Review – Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (1985)

Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf, 1985.

Directed by Philippe Mora.

Starring Christopher Lee, Sybil Danning, Annie McEnroe, Marsha J. Hunt, Reb Brown, Jimmy Nail, Ladislav Krecmer, James M. Crawford and Hana Ludvikova.

Synopsis:

The brother of a girl murdered by werewolves hires an investigator to track the beasts from the Us across to Europe.

So the story goes, when Christopher Lee was cast in Joe Dante’s Gremlins 2: The New Batch the first thing the veteran actor did was approach the director and apologise for appearing in Howling II. Dante wasn’t involved in the sequel to his 1981 werewolf hit but it goes to show a) how fond people are of his movie and b) where Christopher Lee’s career was in the mid-1980s because Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (a horrible title amongst a whole list of even worse alternatives) is both an insult

The MST3K Kickstarter campaign is up, running, and funding episodes. If you're new to MST3K, here's a suggestion for getting started...

Turn down your lights (where applicable) - Mystery Science Theater 3000 is making a comeback. The Us series poking fun at bad movies from the comfort of a satellite several miles above the Earth ran for eleven years from 1988-1999, and creator Joel Hodgson has been raising funds to resume the experiment via Kickstarter. The new episodes will star The Nerdist’s Jonah Ray as the hapless human, with the internet’s Felicia Day down to play the evil scientist torturing Jonah with cheesy B-movies, with Patton Oswalt performing henchman duties.

As we write this, three new episodes have been funded, and a batch of six looks likely. However, Hodgson is hoping to reach $5.5 million and fund a full series of 12 new episodes, so if you

7 Obscure Super Hero Films You Probably Haven’t Seen

  • Cinelinx
We’re currently in a boom period for superhero films, with plenty more on the way. It’s the golden age for comic book fans. Characters like Wonder Woman, Dr. Strange and the Justice League are all coming to theaters, joining established franchises like Thor and Captain America. But some of you may not know that these characters all had live-action movies made about them before. Cinelinx looks at 7 obscure super films you probably haven’t seen.

#1. Doctor Strange: In 1978, a two-hour made-for-tv movie aired about the master of the mystic arts. Dr. Strange was meant to be a pilot for a proposed weekly CBS TV series. Peter Hooten played Doctor Strange and Jessica Walters played villainess Morgana Le Fey. CBS was already airing Spider-Man and the Incredible Hulk and was trying to go for the hat trick, bringing the Doc to TV. However, it was not to be.

[Yuletide Terrors] Day 15: Elves

Throughout the month of December, we will be highlighting a film a day that has some tie into the holiday somehow. Some titles will be obvious, others won’t be. Some films will be good and, again, others won’t be. However, we think all titles are worth your time whether to give you chills inside your home or to make you drink more eggnog until you puke laughing.

Kirsten (Julie Austin) and her two friends meet in the woods for the inaugural meeting of the Sisters of Anti-Christmas. The holiday is over commercialized and insincere, plus they got lame gifts last year and it doesn’t look like it’ll snow this year. As far as real problems, Kirsten’s home life is a mess. Her dad is dead, her mom (Deanna Lund) hates her with a fiery passion, little brother is a pervert and Grandpa might be a Nazi.

Watch the 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' Turkey Day marathon

  • Pop2it
For years, "Mystery Science Theater 3000" was a Thanksgiving-day tradition for nerdy and awesome types across the country. The show remains canceled to this day, but now there is an online marathon running throughout the day.

Watch the live feed of the "MST3K Turkey Day Marathon" right here!

Arguably, an online version of "MST3K" is even better than the TV version. For one, no stupid commercials to interrupt the B-movie goodness. It also helps that the original star of the show, Joel Hodgson, is the curator and host of the marathon!

The official description of the marathon is as follows:

"Once upon a time Comedy Central's MST3K Turkey Day Marathon was as much a Thanksgiving tradition as mashed potatoes and drunk uncles. Well we believe in the value of tradition, so we have resurrected the MST3K Marathon for the digital age. And helping us serve this feast of

Exclusive Bigfoot pic, comments: “Night Claws”
If last year’s The Thing remake taught us anything, it’s that CGI just can’t beat good old-fashioned practical FX, especially when dealing with a creature feature. And for those who thought the Sasquatch’s day in the horror-movie sun was over, here’s Night Claws to say not Yeti. Directed by David A. Prior (Sledgehammer, Deadly Prey, Killer Workout), and starring a cool retro cast headed by Reb Brown (Yor, Hunter From The Future, infamous MST3K fave Space Mutiny) and Frank Stallone, Night Claws harks back to the days of bloodletting Bigfoot flicks such as 1982’s Night Of The Demon.

Hearing People Scream in Space: The Supercut

  • NextMovie
One of Hollywood's most celebrated taglines, from the Ridley Scott classic "Alien," tells us:  "In space, no one can hear you scream."

But anyone who's ever seen a proper sci-fi thriller will tell you that's not true at all.

Just watch "Event Horizon." Or "Sunshine." Or the brand new space haunter "Apollo 18." Even "Alien" itself.

So to all you future space travelers, use the footage above as a cautionary tale. Intergalactic exploration is f**king scary. And chances are there will be screaming. Lots and lots of screaming.

Movies Included (Click to Buy):

Galaxy Quest | Event Horizon | Black Hole | The Right Stuff | Planet of Vampires | Total Recall | Alien Resurrection | Armageddon | Sunshine | Alien 3 | Alien | Space Mutiny | Independence Day | Mission to Mars | Dark Star | Fire and Sky | Jason X | Wing Commander | 2001: A Space Odyssey | Supernova | Pandorum

Sasquatchploitation goodness in Night Claws

Yep, that old silly Sasquatchploitation genre is still alive and kickin’ (hopefully like real life Bigfoots…why can’t we find them?) with Night Claws. The official website has a new poster and trailer for you all to enjoy.

Bigfoot is on the loose, and he’s pissed! A plus? Old school FX – no CGI.

Here’s the synopsis: “A small town is being terrorized by a killer Bigfoot. One that is bloodthirsty, vicious and kills without warning and without discrimination. A scientist by the name of Sarah Evans (Leilani Sarelle; Basic Instinct and Barbarians at the Gate) shows up to help the town’s sheriff (Reb Brown; Yor, the Hunter from the Future and Space Mutiny) and his deputy girlfriend Roberta (Sherrie Rose; King of the Kickboxers and Black Scorpion II: Aftershock) hunt this thing down and put an end to the killings. At the same time, Hunter Crawford

Oh, Baby, Rowsdower Saves Us.

  • Pajiba
Nine minutes with Zap Rowsdower. Don't worry, baby. Zap will make all right. Zap has all the Vitamin Z you need.

All right, it's 9 minutes with Bruce J. Mitchell but he is still rocking that sweet, sweet 'stache.

And just because the Godtopus is a kind and loving deity, here's 9 more minutes with "The Final Sacrifice," arguably the greatest episode of MST3K.

"Mitchell" and "Space Mutiny" deserve a mention here as top episodes too. What? You're not familiar with David Ryder? It's your lucky night.

Jason Harris wanted to name his daughter "Smash Lampjaw," but his wife is a killjoy.

New Sasquatchploitation Night Claws a B-Movie Fan's Dream

What if Yor, the Hunter from the Future, Sharon Stone's lesbian lover from Basic Instinct, the star of a host of 80s/90s made-for-video action b-movies, the King of the Kickboxer's girlfriend, and Sylvester Stallone's brother got together to star in a new Sasquatchploitation flick called Night Claws from the director of such horror movies as Killer Workout and Mardi Gras for the Devil?

God willing the wait to answer that question won't be too long. Maybe you don't share my enthusiasm, but as a man with an unabashed soft spot for killer Bigfoot movies, the works of David and Ted Prior's Action International Pictures output, and several of the names announced for the cast, Night Claws is already high on my must-see list.

The Room – So Bad It’s Good (Kind Of)

On Saturday I had one of the funniest nights of my entire life. I went to see a film called The Room at The Prince Charles Cinema in London’s West End. The Prince Charles will always be a special place for me and thousands of people in and around London. It happens to be one of the few remaining indie cinemas in the world and a damn great place to watch films. Any cinema that can name Quentin Tarantino as a fan must be doing something right.

Anyway back to this wonderful film that I went to see. I have always loved to watch films that fall in the category
