Editorial Reviews

Journey once more through the portals on the Satellite of Love to the best of the worst that cinema has to offer. Joel, Mike, and their "robot friends" do another hilarious orbit around four full-length features, presenting the kind of skits and wisecracking commentary that are clearly written by the culturally insane.

Customer Reviews

Instead of being blown to bits, he is set on fire!
Michael King
Thankfully, as dull and awful as this movie is (and it is SO dull and SO awful), the riffing is good and it makes the movie a bit easier to get through than Manos.
Otto Correct
Glad to see that Phantom Planet,Hobgoblins and Monster A-Go-Go are in this set.

MST3K Volume 8 contains two episodes from the Comedy Central years and two from the Sci-Fi Channel years. One stars Joel Hodgson and three star Mike Nelson as host. There is lots of sci-fi and horror fun in these four weird and wonderful episodes. Here's a synopsis of each of them:

Episode 421- MONSTER A-GO GO (with short: CIRCUS ON ICE)

The movie is a hilarious bit of b/w 1965 sci-fi made by Bill Rebane, the guy who later brought you The Giant Spider Invasion. The plot involves an astronaut returning to Earth as a radioactive "monster" and the efforts to catch him. The film has a surprise ending which I won't give away here in case there are any MST3K fans about to buy this set that haven't seen it. I will say that the surprise, if you can call it that, will make you groan, and Joel and the `Bots make some hilarious jokes at the film's expense when the so-called big surprise is revealed. The writers at MST3K were often at their best when the films were at their worst, and this episode is no exception. The low budget is readily apparent in everything about this film, like the poor sound quality, the acting, direction and props (or lack of them). For example, there's one especially funny scene wherein an actor is forced to make a ringing noise to simulate a telephone ringing instead of having an actual sound effect of a telephone ring! The short, Circus On Ice, is also a bit weird and takes a hilarious verbal pounding from the crew of the SOL. Wait till you see the skater playing a fawn getting shot! It's not your typical ice show or circus, that's for sure.

Episode 603- THE DEAD TALK BACK (with short: THE SELLING WIZARD).

The movies included in Volume 8 are great, in the sense that they're perfect for getting the Mystie treatment. "The Dead Talk Back" (1957) is a movie that was so bad, it wasn't released, it escaped! This no name, no budget film involves a mad scientist who supposedly invents a radio-like device that enables him to communicate with the dead. In addition to a religious zealot and assorted loonies, one of the people living in his rooming house is a (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) fashion model. When she is murdered, the nutty professor holds a seance in his laboratory, and uses his invention to ask the victim who murdered her. I won't reveal the surprise ending but, as Crow noted, the dead really didn't talk back!

"Phantom Planet" (1961) is a very cheesy sci-fi flick. Just before one of the two astronauts goes outside to make repairs to the spaceship, he makes this maudlin statement. "You know, Captain, every year of my life I grow more and more convinced that the wisest and the best is to fix our attention on the good and the beautiful. If you just take the time to look at it." Fortunately, he is killed before he makes it back inside the rocket. The spaceship is forced down on a meteor, which is really the phantom planet Rheton. The Captain sees a group of miniature people and promptly passes out. The special effects of him shrinking down to their size while inside his spacesuit are pretty good, given the year and the film's budget. Later, the Captain helps the Rhetons fight off a fiery race of beings called the Solorites. Obviously, their weapons are based on the principles of Solaranite that Ed Wood spoke of in "Plan 9 From Outer Space" (1959).

"Monster A-Go Go" (1965) must have been made on a shoestring budget.

Rhino has been doing a great job with the MST3K dvds including letting fans vote on the episodes they would most like to see. Two of my favorite choices made it to this collection and I cannot wait to show these to my friends. The first is "Hobgoblins" which just astounds you that adults actually made this film. The garden-tool fight alone is worth the set. The second is the "Dead Talk Back" which has some of the best bad acting including the scientist who has the most annoying attitude. The boarding house dinner scene has got to be the worst mixture of over-the-top bad acting and rambling voice-overs in any movie.

Keep it up Rhino!

I have ALL of the MST3K episodes on tape with the exception of the first year on KTMA. I will buy every title that Rhino will produce. Yes, I have even bought the repeated Rhino titles, single titles that were put into volume collections(shame on them for that).

In other words, I AM A MST3K Fanatic. So, I want to applaud everyone who buys and appreciates all things Mystie. Even the worst episodes are better than, well, anything!

I must correct Brian Mendus' well written review, for he named the wrong character in "Monster-A-Go-Go". Glenn Manning is of course from "The Amazing Colossal Man", episode #309, and "War of the Colossal Beast", episode #319. Our mysterious "monster" in "Monster-A-Go-Go"is named Frank Douglas, and he was "rescued alive, well and of normal size, some eight thousand miles away..."

Mystery Science Theater 3000 forever.
