Ray Dennis Steckler, Carolyn Brandt, Brett O'Hara. Three carnivalgoers are stalked by zombies controlled by a malevolent stripper and her fortune-telling sister in this monster musical! It's like the 'bots don't even have to work for laughs on this MST3K episode. 1997/color/82 min/NR/widescreen.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
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.
Definitely worth it.
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.
