trivial use of my dark powers: Trumpy, you can do magic things!


"It's called evil, kid."

One of the best Joel episodes (which, on my most recent sequential rewatch, were horribly uneven).

Even the movie 'The Fog' didn't have this much fog.

I was trying to figure out what the Hell was wrong with this film. After suffering through the entire movie, I checked IMDB. Turns out it was filmed in Spanish and French. That explains so much.

Based on the hairstyles and clothing, I thought it might have been the late 70's, but IMDB says it was made in 1983.

Question: how did the US version of this crappy film get called "Pod People", when the Spanish version translates to "The New Extraterrestrials"?

Nothing about the movie makes any sense. Even the movie poster at IMDB doesn't have anything to do with the actual film. That said, it's sort of refreshing to realize that really crappy movies can be made outside the US. I thought we were the best at being the worst. I am pleased to find this is not the case.

I imagine the title change happened because of E.T. - The Extra Terrestrial, which was released in '82. The names are too similar, they probably wanted to avoid any potential lawsuits or anything. And according to IMDB, the script was re-written from a horror movie to capitalize on E.T.'s success.

Manos: the Hands of Fate

, Monster a-Go-Go, and the Coleman Francis trilogy were all American. So we are indeed the best at being the worst, cinema-wise.

\can't imagine any films worse than those

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Zombies. Though not as horrible as Monster a-Go-Go, it's a contender for the crown.

I stand corrected. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to drill a hole in my skull for the brain-bleach to once again remove the memory of those horrid wastes of celluloid.

I'm always late to these threads.

I've been on a Joel Hodgson kick lately for some reason. I typed his name into itunes on a whim and found some interviews on The Nerdist and We Hate Movies podcasts. Some very cool stuff. Had always wondered about the reasons on why he left the show, and he said he got into disagreements with Jim Mallon over the MST3K movie. So fark you, Gypsy.

I also dug up his old SNL appearances in the 80's, which I had no idea existed until I heard the interviews. Some are on Youtube, others I found on Netflix. Even back then he had that dopey looking stoner look, it's awesome.
