Synopses
Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 14: Final Justice (Disc 4 of 4) (1990)
Cycle-flick habitue Greydon Clark warmed the director's chair for Final Justice. Joe Don Baker stars as a Texas sheriff attempting to stem corruption in his own community. Failing this, the sheriff (Baker) is compelled to follow the mob perpetrators all the way to Italy. It is hardly uplifting entertainment, but it certainly delivers the goods in terms of bloody action.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 14: Manhunt in Space (Disc 2 of 4) (1954)
The syndicated TV sci-fi series Rocky Jones, Space Ranger (1953) was dual-purposed. Though running 39 episodes, the series consisted of thirteen serialized continuities, each running three weeks. These adventures were later assembled into ersatz "feature films" for theatrical release. One such three-part adventure was Manhunt in Space, in which Rocky Jones and his space rangers battled a group of extraterrestrial desperadoes from the planet Prah. Scotty Beckett, Sally Mansfield and Maurice Cass costar in this low-budget but highly imaginative effort.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 14: Soultaker (Disc 3 of 4) (1990)
Two young people brought to the edge of death find themselves dragged back by a mysterious stranger in this horror story. When four teenagers are seriously injured in an auto accident, a spectral man dressed in black (Joe Estevez) arrives to claim their souls. But it seems that the Soultaker has arrived too soon; as he tries to draw their spirits from their bodies, it becomes evident that two of the kids, Natalie (Vivian Schilling) and Zach (Gregg Thomsen), aren't actually dead, but merely comatose and will soon recover. The Soultaker is determined to claim four souls, no matter how many have actually passed on, and he finds himself locked in a desperate struggle to take the other two victims with him, whether they like it or not. Vivian Schilling, who plays the female lead in Soultaker, also wrote the film's screenplay.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 14: The Mad Monster (Disc 1 of 4) (1942)
Bland former child actor Johnny Downs earns top billing in this low-budget horror film, but the real star is that most psychotic of all the mad doctors George Zucco. The British-born character actor plays Dr. Lorenzo Cameron, a discredited -- and quite mad -- medico who has discovered a way to turn his helper, Pietro (Glenn Strange), into a wolf man. The lycanthropic experiments succeed only too well and although Dr. Cameron spouts plans of turning his discovery into a weapon in defense of the civilized world ("men who are governed by one collective thought, the animal lust to kill without regard for personal safety! Such an army will sweep everything before it," Dr. Cameron promises), he instead unleashes his creation on those fellow scientists who had engineered his ouster from academia in the first place. Before long, however, the good doctor is unable to control the wolf man, who threatens to kill everything in his past, and only newspaper reporter Tom Gregory (Johnny Downs) and Lenora (Anne Nagel), Cameron's innocent daughter, may be able to stop the monster. A perennial cult favorite, The Mad Monster was released on the heels of The Wolf Man (1941), but cost a fraction of Universal's elaborate lycanthropic exercise. ~ Hans J. Wollstein, All Movie Guide
