Play MSTie for me? Sort of.
Three of the good folks behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 – Kevin Murphy, Bill Corbett and Mike Nelson – have done some work in various media as The Film Crew. On July 10th, they’ll be reuniting for a series of D2DVDs distributed by the Shout! Factory label.
According to the official MST3K news site Satellite News, here’s the premise: Determined to provide a commentary track for every movie, the guys settle into the dank basement of an office building, where, each day, their boss, entertainment mogul Bob Honcho, calls them on speakerphone and tells them which bad movie they will riff. There’ll be breaks in the riffing action for sketches and, best of all, no worries about whether they can eat and breathe!
First up from The Film Crew: Hollywood After Dark, the 1968 blockbuster starring Rue McClannahan, later of Golden Girls fame. Warning for the prudes and the peculiar: Rue’s got a strip scene. Three more "episodes" are in the can and will be released in upcoming months: Giant of Marathon (1959, starring Steve Reeves), Killers from Space (1954, starring Peter Graves) and The Wild Women of Wongo (1958).
Retail price will be $19.99.
