Bad Wishing
7 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my tenth favorite episode for the show for me as it has delivered a lot of laughs. The film is basically an absurd combination of both "Gremlins" and "Wishmaster" where this little creatures project to each of the victims their deepest desires which turn against them. The idea I don't think was bad, turning the wish granting motif upside down but the films execution of the concept was just poor.

I really like how the crew of the MST a few of them actually ran away from the film being awful and in the break sequences even try to cop out by putting cardboard cutouts of themselves and play a tape recorder of their voices. That song they sing about the film just cracks me up.

However the highlight of the episode for me was in the fight scene which is one of the worst one on one fights I've ever seen, as it is so poorly choreographed and one sided. It's just funny how many comments the MST crew made and how they pointed out the Casio music that played every time one of the character struck each other with the sticks.

The next wish you'll make is that you've seen a better movie.

Rating: 4 stars
