This review is from: The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Collection, Vol. 9 (Women of the Prehistoric Planet / Wild Rebels / Sinister Urge / The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-up Zombies) (DVD)
Nice variety pack of pure cheesy goodness. "Planet of Prehistoric Women" is very much in the original "Star Trek" and "Forbidden Planet" vein and is mercilessly riffed by the crew. Great to see another Season 1 episode. "Wild Rebels" is a natural - Joel and company do some of their best work with biker flicks and the usual incoherent characters. ("I think he's chanting in Sanskrit.....") Ed Wood and "The Sinister Urge"! Yes, the great autuer himself, and Wood even makes a guest appearance in the film as a fighting barfly - quite an acting stretch, eh? See a cute little grandpa gnome take pictures of beefy gals in baggy swimsuits - that stuff drives people cah-RAZY, man - it brings out their SINISTER urges! And shoot, where ELSE are you going to come across a movie with a title like "Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies"? (Actually, I'm surprised the folks at "Something Weird" didn't pick up on this one - it's more their kind of entertainment.) "Ortega" gives our old friend "Torgo" a real run for his money as the goofiest sidekick in any movie. Are they dancing in those dream sequences, or dreaming about dance sequences? Phew - jaw-dropping.
All winners, and such a wide variety that there's something for every fan. Get it for the KICKS, square-hair!!
