Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Brute Man 1996

NR CC
3.7 out of 5 stars (7) IMDb 8.2/10

“B” movie seems too generous a term for this one - is there such a thing as a “Z” movie? Rondo Hatton plays a disfigured man, a/k/a “The Creeper,” who hunts down and kills the people responsible for his deformity.

THE BRUTE MAN, one of the two Rondo Hatton "Creeper" movies released after the actor's death in 1946, is a drab, depressing twist on Beauty and the Beast -- the Creeper falls for a blind piano teacher, whom he visits when his busy revenge killing schedule will allow it-- and while the boys give it their best comedic shot, there's not much riffworthy material here. (Watching Hatton's dazed performance, delivered while struggling with the disease that would kill him just three months later, doesn't make things any easier to laugh at.)

The film is preceded, and blown away, by "The Chicken of Tomorrow," a 1948 ode to the poultry industry, and one of MST3K's funniest shorts.

I enjoyed this episode but it's a 'good not great' one. It includes the short 'Chicken of Tomorrow' which is about poultry raising in the U.S. The movie is a standard boilerplate revenge story, with 'The Brute Man' visiting vengeance upon those who caused him to lose his good looks and drop out of college. This is a 'Mike' episode from the later seasons.

Excellent episode with Mike and the 'bots. The film was surprisingly watchable and the riffing was good and constant. In that period after Frank had left and Pearl was living with Dr. Forrester. I always loved that whole mother-son thing they had going on.

A man seeks revenge against those he feels are responsible for his deformity and ruining his life.

On it's own, the premise has potential. However, poor effects. acting, camera work, and direction lead to an overall dull film. There are a number of hilarious moments that weren't intended to be funny though.

Much thanks for the riffers stepping in and providing their unique brand of comic relief and observations.
