This film can't be killed. Run! RUN AWAY!
24 July 2017 | by dnlmonacoSee all my reviews

There are bad movies and there are awful movies and then there are movies so stunningly terrible that even Mystery Science Theater 3000 can't make them better.

Covered in the second episode of the show's 11th season, you'd expect the jokes about this bad movie to be a welcome dose of fun for MST3K's return. Sadly not. Either because of the new cast's inexperience or returning producer Joel Hodgeson's tendency to "play nice" with the bad movies, Cry Wilderness actually manages to defy satire.

This film is so god awful and poorly made that it actually can't be made fun of. The acting is bad, the script is drivel, the story is razor thin. It's everything MST3K has made fun of for nearly twenty years and yet some how it's worse, none of the jokes made at Cry Wilderness' expense manage to be funny because it's just...that...bad. it's by far one of the top ten worst films they've ever ridiculed and it's certainly one of the worst films I've ever watched.

Don't watch this movie, even if it's in the context of an MST3K episode, it defies all expectations for awful.
