Did You Know?


Dr. Forrester: Anyway, your film today is "Robot Monster". It's a classic film that was nominated for a Golden Turkey award for being one of the "fowlest" films ever! Hehe!
Dr. Lawrence Erhardt: See, to call this film wretched would just be a insult to the word wretched! It stars no-one! Oh, man, you won't believe this!

Satisfactory episode, but makes for a good excuse to sit through such a lame movie
27 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen "Robot Monster", and if you're going to put yourself through such an ordeal, you may as well have the bots along for the trip. Give this movie credit for creating the lasting image of a lumbering gorilla suit with a space helmet . A costume like that would be a hit at parties. Other than that, you should only watch this movie drunk or stoned (both?).

As an "MST3K" episode, it's good, although not one of my favorites. It was back in the early days, so the green tint is understandable. But I do confess that Tom Servo's old voice is a bit jarring (Kevin Murphy made him my favorite character, and this was before him). That said, the riffs are good and it does the job of making "Robot Monster" manageable.
