Storyline

Mike and the 'bots sit through The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies!!? (1964), a horrible horror film featuring bargain basement musical numbers, an unintelligible soundtrack, a ferret-faced leading man, a gypsy fortune teller with a huge mole, and a guy who talks like Latka Gravas from Taxi (1978). Meanwhile, Crow and Servo hit up Mike for the Walk-A-Thon. Pearl takes a trio of preternatural kids back to their omnipotent parents. Professor Bobo and Observer talk to Mike via a CNN-like live broadcast. Crow uses Servo as a crystal ball to scam Mike out of fifty cents. Mike and the 'bots get new 'dos. Crow hires Ortega from the film to cater Servo's First Communion. Crow and Servo build a roller coaster for Mike. Written by J. Spurlin

Almost as bad as the name
17 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

If you looked at the title and thought, 'That sounds like a horrible movie,' then you are absolutely right. I watched the Mystery Science Theater version and almost gave up halfway through that one. If even MST3K can't coerce you to finishing the movie, there's not much else that can. Why is it so horrible? Let me count the ways . . . First, the ridiculous sound. You can barely hear it, which isn't a bad thing in this case. It sounds like it was recorded on Edison's first phonograph, as the MST3K crew continually point out. Second is the cast of the movie. Almost everyone is Eastern European, which isn't always a bad thing. Eastern Europeans who can't act, however, is a very bad thing. Third is the story. The thing about the story is . . . well, frankly, there is no story. Apparently, its about this guy who dumps his girlfriend to go to a strip club, where a psychic hypnotizes him to kill this girl who has no relation to the story whatsoever. Then the guy almost kills his girlfriend and gets shot by the police after freeing the rest of the zombies. Story? This movie doesn't need one. There's no way that gaining one would help any.
