Most of the MST3K shows that featured a black and white film tended to be a bit tedious to watch, this film is no exception, however the boy and his bots are firing on all cylinders and make this otherwise terrible film entertaining on a level that the original producers could have never imagined.

This movie is a great place to start after you have watched the less-painful "beginner" MST3Ks. Not nearly a "Manos" or "Yucca Flats" but a few steps better. If you've started to enjoy MST3K, this is a great place to start moving into the deeper cuts. Z-Rate, but sufficiently cheesy as to not hurt too bad.

Seeing as MST3k is sort of a show within a show within a movie concept, you need to look at the different sections of the program to rate it.

The actual movie: A bad movie where Rosco P. Coltrane lands on an island where experimental shrews (don't ask) are taking over. Apparently the shrews also took over the sound mixing as a lot of the conversations are barely audible. Includes the worst over-grown animal monster effects (it makes "Night of the Lepus" look like "Avatar"), drinking, one of the worst escape plans ever shown on film, and more drinking. This is one of those annoying movies where people do dumb things even though they are about to be killed. You wouldn't watch this movie if it were on by itself.

Host Segments: Funny! The anti-shrew ones are the best.

Riffs: Joel just makes up the dialogue due to the poor sound effects - which is very funny. The riffs are pretty even throughout the movie.

Overall: Very good MST3K episode. Not a classic but very good.

Other: My only complaint: HOW CAN THERE BE NO (ZERO) DUKES OF HAZARD JOKES!!! The movie stars Roscoe! I know Joel loves referencing obscure cultural items but geez - could have thrown at least 1 DoH joke!
