HASH(0x998e94f8) out of 5 stars Are you kidding? One of my favorite MST episodes ever! Sept. 10 2011
By Joseph A. Blevins - Published on
Oh, where to even begin praising MST3K's deliriously funny treatment of "Incredibly Strange Creatures"? This was one of my very favorite episodes from Season 8, and I'm glad it's out on DVD. Let's start with their riffing during the movie's many, many musical numbers. MiSTies will probably remember "Shick Out of Shape," but there's oh so much more. I think my favorite scene in the entire episode is the one in which the ultra-white, ultra-bland bland folk singer comes out and starts strumming this very monotonous and tame folk song called "How Do I Stand With Your Heart?" and Mike and the 'bots sing lyrics to other songs over him, like: "Livin' on reds, vitamin C, and cocaine!" and "My anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hon." But all songs are great, as are the dance numbers. ("They're like the Blue Angels of dance!") And then there's the "Open Wagon, Roll On!" country song which Mike claims was digitally recorded then erased then re-recorded on a dictophone.

Other great things in this episode:
* "It wouldn't be Jerry!" "And that's a good thing?"
* ORTEGA! - Not just his appearances in the movie, but on the bridge of the SOL, too, when Crow has hired him to cater the movie break despite Mike's objections. ("He's ashing in the quail eggs!")
* "...And he misses the ocean!"
* The WALK-A-TON skit ("Hi, everyone! Let's pitch in 'n' get crackin'...." - still a favorite of mine!)
* "What do you think we came here for, to eat?" - All the riffing about Atlas King's character.
* "Madison!" - the whole portrayal of wimpy Madison as a would-be action hero
* "You know what I'm lookin' at? That EXIT sign!"
* "She saves her washerwoman pay to go to strip shows."

I could go on and on quoting lines from this episode. I haven't even gotten to the miserably lame emcee at the Hungry Mouth ("I've been asked to explain the Iron and Steel joke") or the carny who can wash dishes with his hat. If you think this is a mediocre or just-okay episode, I'd all but beg you to back and give it another look. You're missing out on something really funny.

HASH(0x997b963c) out of 5 stars Actually remember seeing this as a kid!!!!! Oct. 8 2012

I missed out getting this movie when it was offered in the MST3K vol 9 set but so happy to see it re-released as a single. I totally agree that this was one of MST3K's funniest but this one is also near and dear to me because I actually remember seeing this at the "drive-in movies" as a kid. And it was just as trippy for me back then as it is now.
Definitely worth it.

HASH(0x998eba8c) out of 5 stars Truly one of the best MST3K episodes....ever!! July 30 2012
By Scourge - Published on
Didn't take long before I started laughing until tears welled up and this continued throughout the film. Not since "The Brain That Wouldn't Die" has there been a more satisfying MST3K episode. From "Your hair won't clear the door!" to a redux of "The Little Drummer Boy" to "I see a big house and *spit* there's a swimming pool!"

HASH(0x998eb9a8) out of 5 stars MST3K: The Incredibly Strange Creatures... Feb. 6 2014
By Celia Trimboli - Published on
Extremely good MST3K entry. The film itself is one of those bad it's bad stinkers. That's why it responds so well to the MST3K treatment. I won't go in too deeply on how good it is. I just want to say to MST3K fans who haven't seen or don't have this one: GET IT. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x998034b0) out of 5 stars David Lynch's "West Side Story" Aug. 21 2015

Although the word "indescribable" was made for movies like this one, let me try: a rat-faced git is seduced and hypnotized into becoming a serial killer by an evil stripper and her still more evil, fortune-telling sister. That's only an excuse, of course, for a string of embarrassing song-and-dance numbers, and for the vertigo-inducing experiments of then-novice cinematographers Vilmos Zigmund, Laszlo Kovacs, and Joseph Mascelli.

Is this enough to explain why Mike, Kevin, and Bill rip into this movie with such gusto? Of course there's the hopelessly bad acting, the abominable sound recording, and at least one gender-indeterminate dancer to shake one's head at, but the movie doesn't come so much from a low-budget, fly-by-night film operation as from a parallel universe. There are no human beings in this film, only grotesque, live-action cartoon characters. The movie is a bloody traffic accident you simply can't look away from.
