Five MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 Movies That Deserved Better

Just about every sci-fi/horror nerd is celebrating the return of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 on April 14, 2017, but although this beloved series has earned a loyal fanbase by mocking bad movies, I think it’s worth pointing out right now that not all of the movies it lampooned were technically “bad.” Granted, many of MST3K’s […]

Horror & Sci-fi Coming to Netflix in April

The Netflix April line-up includes a lot of great comedies like TROPIC THUNDER and COOL RUNNINGS, as well as a nice assortment of kids’ flicks like KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS and THE BFG. But horror and science fiction are scant this month sadly. I was only able to tease out four genres titles from […]

SNARK WEEK! Before SHARKTOPUS, There Was MONSTER SHARK!

It’s time to bid a moist farewell to another Shark Week… and with it, my goofy little theme of alternative shark programming (which began with an ode to the gloriously awful SyFy opus GHOST SHARK and a re-examination of JAWS 2 from a slasher fan’s perspective). But I’m not going down without a fight… even if […]

Five Horror Movies That Need The MST3K Treatment

There are few shows that are as perfect as MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. It is a show that you can watch alone or with friends. A show that you can watch in bite sized bits if you’re one of those weird busy people, or in long stretches for hours at a time if, like me, […]

11 Bad Horror Movies That MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 Made Famous

Let’s just say that the 1990s weren’t a good decade to be a bad movie. The proliferation of cable and home video was making high quality motion pictures and television easier to access across the world, and the cottage industry of repurposing ancient, terrible horror films for late night TV programming was beginning to dwindle.
