Trivia

Until the episode that featured Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) the writers of MST3K considered Monster a-Go Go (1965) to be the worst film ever featured on the series. It's still counted among the 'top' worst films to be shown on the series. See more »

Quotes

Tom Servo: [seeing the title partially obscured by the backdrop] "Monster Go Go?" I thought this was going to be "Monster Go Home."

I don't think even Joel and The Bots saved me from this
2 February 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

I love watching some of the considered "Worst movies ever made" through Mystery Science Theater. The Creeping Terror, The Beast of Yucca Flats, Manos The Hands Of Fate to name a few. They always made them watchable. This however made me question that even Joel and The Bots could have made this watchable. Well they did... just.

Step right up if you want to see one of the worst movies of all time (it might not be your vote for worst movie of all time but it is for me) made almost watchable. Not an easy task when your movie doesn't have a plot. But nevertheless this movie was made watchable by them, you must give them extra credit for that.

But my one real complaint with the movie is that it doesn't really have any material for the MST3K guys to work with, because the movie is just scenes that have almost nothing to do with each other spliced together. I would recommend for those people that want to see the only way to experience Monster A Go-Go in a watchable way.
