Since the dawn of recorded history, sacred texts have inspired intellectuals to enlighten the rest of us through their commentaries. To a certain, special kind of person - and if you're buying this 25th collection of MST3K
, pal, you're one of them - cheesy movies are sacred texts. And who better to help us navigate the occult meanings of B-movies' holiest scriptures than space captives Joel, Mike and their robot companions Tom Servo and Crow T. Robot? Their running commentaries allow us to laugh at inscrutable plots, painful performances and felonious filmmaking.
Mystery Science Theater 3000: XXV
brings us Robot Holocaust
, the tale of the young drifter, Neo, who leads a ragtag band of rebels against a robot army and its evil overlord, the Dark One; Kitten With A Whip
, wherein Ann-Margret embodies youth gone bad in this story of a juvenile delinquent whose violent escape from reform school leads her to the house of a senatorial candidate; Operation Kid Brother
, a knock-off spy film also known by another title, features Neil Connery (brother of Sean) as a plastic surgeon with hypnotic powers and a talent for lip reading who is recruited by a secret organization to take on a crime syndicate bent on destroying all steel-based power in the world; and Revenge Of The Creature
, the less than classic sequel to Universal's classic monster movie The Creature From The Black Lagoon
, has the luckless monster in captivity at a South Florida aquarium. He falls for a beautiful scientist and, clearly aware that his looks pose a challenge, foregoes the usual courtship rituals and kidnaps her.
Get ready for the funniest study session you'll ever have as these four movies, unearthed from the ancient caves of Hollywood, are interpreted by the long-suffering scholars aboard the Satellite of Love.
