To explain, we watched the VOD version of this movie from RiffTrax with Doug, and he was right - the new VOD stuff RiffTrax is doing is every bit as good as the better MST3K stuff.
While the RiffTrax guys strayed from the world of punching-bag-bad movies and have stepped up to big budget Hollywood stuff in this format (and absolutely killed with it), it's still fun to see the old tools come out and see these guys at work.
So... Frankenstein Island (1981).
|Oh, John Carradine, even your unused b-roll deserved better...|
There are many things one could say about this movie, and among those things is the idea I find inescapable that director Jerry Warren, who had spent the mid-50's through the mid-60's creating the exact sort of movie that wound up on MST3K in the first place, was sitting around with his pals and said "Hey, let's do one more! It'll be great. Let's make a movie!" and this is what happened. And so, in a way, I really hope those guys had fun making the movie, because it makes no sense and it's both mind-boggling and boring.
