Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
MST3K Volume 7 has some truly terrific and hilarious episodes that are among some of my personal favorites. The movies themselves are some of the more entertaining ones used on the show. Each one is described in turn below. The first three are from the Comedy Central years and the last is from the Sci-Fi Channel episodes:


Killer Shrews is a classic B-grade b/w SF film from 1959 with James Best (Dukes of Hazard) and Ken Curtis (Gunsmoke). The melodrama and the endless drinking and standing around punctuated by panic as the main characters are preyed upon by small dogs dressed up as "killer shrews" is hysterically funny all on it's own. Then, the MST3K crew raises the level of humor several notches more. The short, Junior Rodeo Daredevils, is a classic MST3K bit that is referred to in many later episodes of the show (e.g., "old timer Billy Slater" is mentioned for years after this episode was made). Don't miss this!


The 1959 Italian classic sequel to Hercules, also with Steve Reeves, the first and in some ways best muscleman-turned-actor, opened the door for endless "sword and sandal" epics with his two Hercules films. This sequel is slower and inferior to the first Reeves film, but the crew of the SOL makes it a special treat. The host segment where the 'Bots try and get Joel to explain what Hercules and the "nice lady" do all day as if they were kids asking a parent about a sexual situation is drop-dead hilarious, yet as always it is handled so that kids can watch the show, enjoy it, and yet have no idea what they've missed in the way of adult-level jokes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your weapons have no effect on ME! July 1, 2005
This is a perfect collection. Joel, Mike, the Bots, with songs about pants and host segments about how to make a Killer Shrew, a drink. The movies, Hercules Unchained and Hercules Against the Moon Men, are both great examples on why MST3K has such a huge following. Truly great bad movies, with hunky Heros, sexy evil Queens, lots of short skirts and lots of napping. And Deep Hurting. You thought rocking climbing was bad - Sand storm! Sand storm!

Prince of Space is a good example of a bad Japanese movie, which even the kids can watch. Giants, spaceships, lasers that don't seem to hurt anybody (but do clean your teeth)and bad guys who seem as threatening as my nephews.

Then there is Killer Skrews, also known as doggies in puppet outfits. This movie has lots of people drinking and talking and fighting each other - which seems weird when you remember that death is waiting outside the house with long pointy teeth.

Along with this last movie is 3 bonus shorts: Assignment Venezuela, Century 21 Calling...,A Case Of Spring Fever. This makes the last disc over 135 minutes of MST3K goodness! This shorts were only available on VHS via the MST3K website.

None of the movies were available before (at least not in this MST3K version) so the collection is a great gift for a friend or for yourself.

For those of you who purchased the MST3K Vol. 7 DVD set and noticed the slightly edited version of "The Killer Shrews," Rhino is now offering a free replacement DVD.

Email Rhino directly at drrhino (at) and ask for a replacement disc for Volume 7, Disc 4 of the "MST3K Collection." Make sure you give them your full name and mailing address!

Thanks to Rhino for admitting this problem and quickly working to rectify it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't hold your breath for seasons, enjoy the sets. January 11, 2006
These are all good episodes, and the additions of shorts always pleases (it's a pity they moved away from shorts in the later seasons).

However, those waiting for seasonal sets are most likely bound for dissappointment, and not just because the 90 minute runtimes make it something best-left to the newer DVD format standard capacities, to save weighing in at several dozen disks.

As far as I know, MST3k only managed rights for the films featured in their episodes under very limited terms; in most cases they need to re-negotiate the rights to make DVDs; and in more than a few cases they managed to, well, slightly annoy the creators (and rightsholders) with their antics. In fact, the rights to show some of the films expired while the show was still on the air! The exceptions are the public domain films, many of which have been released. It's also why you'll see shorts without their 'parent movies'... though I certainly wish they'd make a habit of including the 'host segments' that framed each short; many are more hilarious than the shorts themselves.

So don't deny yourself the treat of MST3k on DVD because you're waiting for the 'complete' set, such a thing is unlikely due to the unique nature of the show. I think Rhino's on the right track mixing it up like this, it gives those who never witnessed the show until its Sci-Fi days, or who left after Joel's departure, to sample the delights (and stumbles) of each of the various eras of the show.

Watch out for snakes.

5.0 out of 5 stars More MST goodies plus rare short! March 7, 2005
This four-disk DVD set from Rhino contains the following classic MST3K episodes:

#407: The Killer Shrews

#408: Hercules Unchained

#410: Hercules Against the Moon Men

#816: Prince of Space

It will also include the seldom-seen short "Assignment: Venezuela," which was originally to be included on a cancelled CD-ROM from Voyager. Shown during the second MST3K convention in Minneapolis and only before available on a VHS tape from Best Brains themselves, this is a short that a large number of MSTies haven't seen! Other shorts included on this set include "Junior Rodeo Daredevils" (on episode 407) and "Century 21 Calling" and "A Case of Spring Fever."

And hey! TWO Hercules episodes! Thrill as oiled-up Hercules utters the immortal words "I'm so sleepy I can barely keep my eyes open."
