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 is the infamous horror movie in which the characters are menaced by hand puppets, and by dogs in silly-looking monster costumes. THE KILLER SHREWS was the lesser half of director Ray Kellogg's 1959 one-two punch -- it was shot back to back with THE GIANT GILA MONSTER, but nowhere near as much fun to watch.

The riffing makes the movie bearable, but it's a very, very dull first hour of characters talking and drinking, and talking some more, all in muddy sound and incomprehensible regional accents. Funny material by Joel and company, but not funny enough to salvage that deadly first hour.

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.
