Night Train to Nowhere
31 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very funny episode of MST3K concerning one of the most incomprehensible films of the entire series. Red Zone Cuba (aka Night Train to Mundo Fine) is one of the most awful films ever made by one of the most awful film-makers (Coleman Francis) that every walked onto a set.

The episode starts with a short on Public Speaking from the 1950's University of Kansas that is hilarious. The fashion and the advise are incredibly dated.

Then we hear the title song sung(!) by cameo actor John Carradine (!!). We then are treated to about sixty minutes of the 'bots riffing on this ineptly made, grim and humorless adventure tail that meanders all over the place and then wides up in Cuba during the Castro revolution for no reason at all. The story of three escaped convicts trying to out run the law by traveling to Cuba is unwatchable and 'bots riffing is the only thing that makes this watchable.

If it possible for a movie to be so horrible that it is painful that is the only thing that keeps this episode from being classic.
