Synopses
Mystery Science Theater 3000: Bloodlust (1994)
Mike Nelson, Crow, and Tom Servo shout railleries at Robert Reed (The Brady Bunch) in Bloodlust, a film that sadly attempts to imitate horror classic The Most Dangerous Game. In the film, several young adults get stranded on an island, where they meet a hunter, his bear, and his employees, and then become targets for his hunt when he expands his stuffed animal collection to include humans. Mike and the 'bots mock the genre by conducting a murder mystery dinner party, after having a hoedown in celebration of Uncle Jim's Dairy Farm, the short preceding Bloodlust. ~ Sarah Sloboda, All Movie Guide

Mystery Science Theater 3000: Catalina Caper (1990)
Tommy Kirk and Little Richard serve as pilgarlics for Joel, Crow, and Tom Servo in the Catalina Caper, a comedy that requires joke explanation on the part of the guys on the Satellite of Love. Indeed, without Joel and the 'bots infusing their own commentary, the 1960s beach-style film would cause more cringes than laughter. The musically oriented film -- full of singing and dancing in bikinis -- inspires Tom Servo's "Creepy Girl" song. Meanwhile, Frank finds a way to store his leftovers. ~ Sarah Sloboda, All Movie Guide

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Creeping Terror (1994)
An alien monster plagues the screen in The Creeping Terror, a film which apparently has no existing original soundtrack. Aside from pathetic special effects and bad acting, Mike and the robots have to deal with the monster's consumption of people, which -- despite its complete lack of terror -- is terrible indeed. Crow and Tom try to liken Gypsy to the creepy movie creature, while Mike attempts to install a sound system in the Satellite of Love. ~ Sarah Sloboda, All Movie Guide

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Skydivers (1994)
This installment of Mystery Science Theater 3000 was first shown on August 27, 1994. The feature is The Sky Divers, a 1963 B-movie by schlock master Coleman Francis, director of Red Zone Cuba and Beast of Yucca Flat. Tony Cardoza stars as Harry, a guy who runs a skydiving school and cheats on his wife. On the Satellite of Love, Mike Nelson and the bots reenact the horrible skydiving sequences with their own parachutes. Crow accidentally saws himself in half while re-creating the shop class from the homoerotic short film "Why Study Industrial Arts?" ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Originally released as part of the first Boxed Set.

Ouch, that smarts! by DChambers January 14, 2004 - 12:34 PM PST

In the interest of full disclosure I will tell you that in the world of MST3K, I am of the "Joel" camp and Joel wasn't in this one. However, it just didn't measure up to others I've seen.

Of course it is MST3K, and therefore it wasn't totally without merit. There was a High-larious dance sequence towards the end and Mike and the 'bots were on fuego for that, but there were points when I felt this movie was so bad that even the making fun of it lost it's snap.

I almost fell asleep in the middle.

The lone casting choice of note in this generally quite amusing episode of MST is Robert Reed, later more famous for his stint as Mr. Brady in the Brady Bunch. The other lead guy looks rather geeky for an action hero, or as one of the 'bots puts it, "Steve Allen, P.I.!" The plot is a rip-off of The Most Dangerous Game, with a little Robinson Crusoe and Gilligan's Island thrown in, as four partygoers on a boat (rather stupidly) decide to check out a nearby island, only to be captured by a madman who likes to hunt visitors as if they were game. Except for the usual slow stretches in these sorts of movies, wherein the villian stands around talking in exposition ad nauseum (Tom Servo sums up the proceedings accurately when he says, "This would be really suspenseful, but for the fact that it isn't"), it's not that boring, and Mike and the 'bots have some fun with some of the more ridiculous elements. Oh, and the whole thing starts off with a hi-lariously dated "educational" film (although who it's educating, I'm not sure) about a summer vacation at Uncle Ed's farm. There are pigs and cows and kittens and pitchforks and a fattening supper and the whole thing is evil I tell you. And funny. Overall, not a classic MST3K outing, but damned amusing nonetheless.

The MST3000k crew had a field day with this little fallen angel of a movie. The cast couldn't have said anymore with out totally talking over the movie.
