Episode cast overview:
Jim Mallon ...
Frank Conniff ...


Dr. Forrester and TV's Frank do their laundry as they force Mike and company to watch The Creeping Terror (1964), a jaw-droppingly bad horror flick about a space alien that looks like a large carpet with people under it. Mike and the 'bots survive the schlock by mocking everything from the ponderous and unnecessary narrator to the pointless scene of a mother taking her baby's temperature. Meanwhile, Tom Servo pretends to be a security guard impeding Mike Nelson's way around the Satellite of Love. Crow makes a flag for the ship. Gypsy suggests a parody of the TV series, Love, American Style (1969). Mike plays "Creeping Terror" music on his makeshift stereo system. Tom Servo willingly finds out what it's like to get swallowed. Written by J. Spurlin

"What a nice place to get killed"
17 September 2011 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

Okay by that title you might already have guessed the subtlety of the riffing. Many people might say that the sketches are awful and indeed they are (Those sketches stopped me from giving it a 10). The MST3K team has decided to riff through the slow-paced 'Horror'-ble movie The Creeping Terror.

The thing about this movie is that it is well and truly deserved on MST3K, The IMDb Bottom 100 ad Wikipedia's List Of Films Considered The Worst, to be honest it is the worst horror film I have seen since the ASYLUM movie DRACULA'S CURSE.

I will say that Crow and Tom Servo had most of the best lines but Mike had only one good line (if you see my review for the actual movie you'll know what it is). MST3K this is a job well done
