Synopses
Mystery Science Theater 3000: Godzilla vs. Megalon
The underground kingdom of Seatopia sends out Megalon, a giant beetle, and Gigan to destroy the above ground dwellers. In an attempt to stop them, an independently thinking robot brings Godzilla into the fight.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Swamp Diamonds (1955)
The Cruel Swamp and Swamp Diamonds were reissue titles for the steamy Roger Corman-directed melodrama Swamp Women. The title characters-Marie Windsor, Jill Jarmyn, Beverly Garland and Susan Cummings-comprise the "Nardo Gang," a vicious female crime contingent. The ladies have stolen some valuable jewels and are making their escape through the swamp. Joining them is Carole Mathews, ostensibly an escaped convict but actually an undercover cop. Male lead Touch Connors later changed his name to Mike Connors, and still later starred in Mannix. Swamp Women is tacky and tawdry, to be sure, but not without its fascinations. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Teen-Age Strangler
A troubled teen with an undeserved criminal past is the suspect when young women start turning up around town dead and marked up with lipstick.

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Giant Spider Invasion (1975)
Bill Rebane's backyard wonder is a hilariously hokey throwback to the giant-monster flicks of the 50s, while taking its only pseudo-scientific conceit from the mid-70s trend of popular "black hole" theories, combining these two elements to create pure bad-movie heaven. A tiny, decrepit town in rural Wisconsin is rocked by a mysterious explosion, after which a drunken farmer (Robert Easton) discovers dozens of crystal geodes strewn across his property. Cracking each one open reveals a diamond-like encrustation (which to the farmer's dismay proves nearly worthless), as well as a hairy but decidedly un-cosmic tarantula. Being permanently soused, he fails to notice the latter (his equally boozy wife accidentally purees one in her daiquiri!) until the rocks begin opening on their own, and the entire farm is overrun with eight-legged invaders. Despite the title, only one of the spiders would qualify for giant status, but it's definitely a keeper: the Big Daddy arachnid is quite clearly a Volkswagen Beetle covered with black fake fur, with legs operated by the car's passengers and taillights doubling for glowing red eyes. Unfortunately, it is merely glimpsed through much of the film, making its triumphant appearance in the final few minutes. ~ Cavett Binion, All Movie Guide
