Didn't he hook up with Linda Evans in that film? She should have had hazard pay.

One of the things that made me laugh harder than just about anything they've ever done is when they all just howl with absolute horror when we see that Mitchell has a bottle of baby oil on his nightstand.

I think "Hearts pounding.. Veins clogging! Mitchell!" is the hardest I've ever laughed at a MST3K quip.

Seconded. This is the only VHS tape I've held on to, and I don't even own a VCR anymore.

Werewolf?  Oh, you mean "Warwalf"?

It's times like this that I always ask, "What would Mitchell do?"

Didn't even get to finish my orange.
Big buttery moon up there.
Sidewalk kinda looks like ice cream if you squint hard.

Wow. I forgot they reference Eeegah! in the beginning. Still my favorite.

I usually take it garnished with a Ding-Dong.

I don't often see it mentioned in the "Best MST3K's" conversations, but I recently watched Riding With Death, and forgot how good that one was. Highly recommended if you haven't seen it in a while.

Paul, you is a warwulf!

I couldn't chose my favorite MST3K any more than my favorite child. Mostly because I don't have any children but still.

That one's a particular favorite of mine. Bad invisible man effects, Jim Stafford's goofy redneckisms, Abby in the weird heaven-like control center. It's one of my favorite Siffy episodes.

My favorite is and will always be Bride of the Monster, closely followed by both Joe Don Baker movies. For some reason Werewolf doesn't have the same replay value for me.

"This is a pretty mellow top secret operation. Nobody's getting uptight. Everything's cool. No baggage or hangups. I'm just gonna hang in there, baby. You bet your sweet bippy. I'll do my thing and they'll do theirs. Just gotta keep mellow. That's what being Ben Murphy is all about...and I'm Ben Murphy."

It's funny how it was two episodes but they tried to make some continuity like, "Hey, how's that new mustache?"

I find myself drawn to the "mash up two TV episodes into a 'movie'" episodes. RWD, Master Ninja, Prince of Space, Fugitive Alien...

Those are great.  I also really like The Final Sacrifice (the random Larry Csonka jokes crack me up), Cave Dwellers, and Pod People.

There was one about a group of college kids who accidentally awaken an angry mummy who turns out to be an alien that I liked as well.

This is cool.  I thought I'd seen every Phillip Seymour Hoffman movie.

I'd like to discuss Riding With Death but I need to work on my patent papers.

Same here.

HEY!
What?
*bang*
OH!

Friend of mine found this on original VHS.  This is what the box cover looked like.  Nowhere in this movie does Mitchell lift off hanging from a  helicopter

I'd also go with Giant Spider invason or space mutiny or any black and whites from the Mike era.
