It was stated earlier that it was made post 1980, so it was not made in thes, unless time travel was involved and that, sir, would be cheating.

Title: Re: NEW 20 Questions Thread
Post by: starfighter on November 22, 2006, 06:55:39 PM
   To recap, it was made in the 80s, horror but not slasher, scifi or action, not a remake, does involve Satan, with a male lead who has not been featured in another Rifftrax but has two stars who were in Msted films.
   Yes to an established star, yes and no to being a European film, and is not The Ninth Gate.

   For discussion's sake, I was thinking The Witches of Eastwick, but I don't think that's it.

Title: Re: NEW 20 Questions Thread
Post by: starfighter on November 27, 2006, 07:38:56 PM
Checked out a couple possibilities, but The Exorcist II is 1978, and the third one from 1990.  The Final Conflict or The Omen III is from 1981, but I don't see anyone in the cast from a previous MST film.

     There wasn't a movie titled  The Priest vs. Satan  that I missed, was there?

    The "sort of European" clue must factor in somehow, but Hammer was gone by the 1980s, right?
Title: Re: NEW 20 Questions Thread
Post by: Compound on November 27, 2006, 09:34:04 PM
(For discussion - not a question)

I spent a bit of time going through Fangoria's archives, seeing what films that they were looking at in the 1980s, and I'm a bit stumped as well. "The Final Conflict" was one that leaped out at me, but I couldn't find any MST3k vets either.

One "Maybe" that I found was "The Seventh Sign." 
It fits a lot of the categories. Satan is involved. The leads were well known before the film was made. There are priests, and they're from Europe. Demi Moore hasn't been in a Rifftrax, but she has been on MST3k. Two problems though- I can't find a second MST3k vet in the cast list. And while it's possible that Michael Biehn is considered the lead character, I think that most people would consider Demi Moore the lead and, last time I checked, she's female.

(A similar movie, The First Power, according to IMDB came out in 1990, disqualifying it, unless you consider that it was filmed in the 80s, and thus made, but not released in the 80s.)

A few other outside possibilities that have problems but maybe someone else can see something that I missed.:
Re-Animator (I can't find a priest as a character, and the Satan thing is iffy, but there are MSt3k vets in the cast.  It doesn't feel right though.)

The Dead Zone (Once again, iffy on the Satan thing.)

The Devil and Max Devlin (Europe is iffy and horror is a bit of a stretch.)

Ghostbusters (No Satan, unless you say Gozer is Satanic.)

Poltergeist (Famous director on this)

Nightmare on Elm Street (I'd call this a slasher film, but John "Mitchell" Saxon being in it makes me pause and not completely disqualify it.)

Gremlins (Director again)

Hellraiser (Director, plus might be a bit too graphic for the guys.)

Pet Semetary (I can't find a Europe link to the film. Unless it's that King spelled Cemetary in the European manner.)

Child's Play (Slasher film)

Evil Dead (Heh. Probably not.)

I dunno. I'm just getting the feeling that the actual answer will be completely off the wall, like "Heathers"  or a film with a dog named "Satan" or something similar.

and becuase I made a mistake I'll give you the movie and gender of the actor,
he was in LOTR: The Fellowship of the Ring
Title: Re: NEW 20 Questions Thread
Post by: starfighter on November 28, 2006, 09:39:09 PM
   I was reading imdb credits for Ian Holm and Christopher Lee and put up for consideration The Last Unicorn from 1982, a US/West German co-production.   I know it's only animated and I doubt it has much to do with horror, priests or Satan but other than Lee, Keenan Wynn also voices a character and a couple other names seem familiar from MSTed films.  Just saw an article about a new wide-screen DVD due out for this movie.
     Howling II is eliminated as a sequel.
     Didn't see anything likely in Ian Holm's credits.
Title: Re: NEW 20 Questions Thread
Post by: Sharktopus on November 28, 2006, 10:36:28 PM
Is it Waxwork? It seems to meet all the criteria, but IMDb doesn't list any priest in the credits. But it has two actors featured on MST3K - Miles O'Keefe and David Warner - and John Rhys-Davies of Fellowship.
Title: Re: NEW 20 Questions Thread
Post by: CibernÚtico II on November 28, 2006, 11:20:51 PM
19. yes

(http://musicbaron.com/store/images/waxwork.jpg)

starring Zach Galligan, David Warner (Quest of the Delta Knights), Miles O'Keeffe (Cave Dwellers), and John Rhys-Davies (LOTR)

a great horror/comedy from 1988. I absolutley loved this movie as a kid. It was just one of those out of nowhere movies that you never hear of and then see it on TV late one night. I may have actually first saw it on Svengoolie and later rented, I don't remember.

I didn't remember specifically if it had any priests in it, but it had segments featuring Dracula, a werewolf, Frankenstein, a mummy and more. I assume there's a priest in there somewhere

I really liked the story line and it was really scary too. I haven't seen it in years, but I'll it as soon as I see it somewhere

A warning: I considered whether to keep up the higher difficulty level we seem to have developed of late, or to just do, say, Predator or something like that. I went with a somewhat more obscure movie. I figure it's more fun that way.

Post by: Dirty Smelly Anteater on December 03, 2006, 09:58:04 PM
I think it's Charly.  It fits the clues so far.  60s, not British, and "loosely" Sci-Fi.  The only problem is it's not really that obscure.  It won an Oscar and was based on a rather famous short story.  Don't want to make an "official" guess yet, but that's the way I'm leaning.  It's the "loosely" Sci-Fi part that really jumps out at me.  Still, clues will help narrow it down.  The time-frame answer will really help out.

May I submit for consideration

Reptilicus
http://imdb.com/title/tt0056405/ (http://imdb.com/title/tt0056405/)

Released in 1963 (1961 in its native Denmark)
A US/Danish co-production.
It's sci-fi, being about a giant lizard that has a distaste for Copenhagen.
It's had a DVD release, so while it's not as famous sci-fi schlock as other 60s fare, it's not too obscure.

Plus, it's the only US/other co-production I could find that's not Italian or Japanese that jumps out at me.

Nice job, Fingle! I never thought anyone would get it so quickly. I love Reptilicus. What's not to love about a Godzilla knockoff that destroys Copenhagen? Sidney Pink, Sidney Pink. A worthy addition to any Riffaholic's collection.

Cimarron?

(http://www.soundtrackcollector.com/images/movie/large/Cimarron_(1931).jpg)

The first Western ever to win Best Picture, and it's so so bad.  Not only does it have offensive racial stereotypes, towards the end of the movie it starts patting itself on the back for being so forward thinking when it comes to that subject.  There is basically no plot, it seems like a series of episodes mashed to together, with no intertwining thread.  The "main character" leaves the film for years at a time, shows up to right some wrong, and then manages to leave his wife and children alone again, at least three or four times.  Oh, and his name is Yancy Cravat.

YANCY CRAVAT!!!

Your move Justin.

1. Made before the 90s? Yes.
2. After 1975? No.
3. After the 50s? No.
4. After 1940? Yes.
5. Did it win any academy awards? No.
6. American? Yes.
7. Is it science fiction? No.
8. Is it a Western? No.
9. Film Noir? Nope!
10. Is it in color (or colour)? Nope and Nope!
11. And is the director famous? Well, I know him well.  He's respected amongst critics.
12. Was said director born in America? Yes
13. Made in the '50s? No.
14. Is it a Frank Capra movie? No.
15. Is the movie a comedy? Yes.
16. Is Cary Grant in it? Aha! A breakthough! Yes.
17. I Was A Male War Bride?

Yes!


Cary Grant is my absolute favourite comedic actor.  He's also one of the most under-rated actors.  I Was a Male War Bride is a great little comedy with Ann Sheridan (who my mother is named after) and directed by the mighty Howard Hawks.

Woo-hoo! I win again! Of course, this game would be much more difficult without IMDb. I like to think I know my movies, but I would've guessed The Philadelpia Story or Bringing Up Baby first.

Hmm... have to think of a good choice...

Okay, I've got one. I'll warn you ahead of time, this one will not be easy. It's one of my favorite little-know movies.

   Good going, Shark.  I counted 10 different 40s comedies for Grant on imdb.
     Think I'll start on a different track.  Is your movie in color??

Simple deduction, my dear Starfighter, although the Frank Capra question was a waste, as I'd forgotten he was born in Italy. It may have helped that there's a poster featuring I Was A Male War Bride in the waiting area of my local Applebee's.

Scotland, PA debuted at the Sundance film festival but never opened wide. Really a shame - it's definitely worth checking out. What's not to love about MacBeth set in a '70s fast food joint, with Christopher Walken as police lieutenant McDuff AND a soundtrack full of Bad Company songs? Go rent it. You'll thank me.

The director of this movie is somewhat infamous in bad movie circles.  After he directed this, he went on to direct one of the most famously bad movies in recent memory, one which is often suggested for riffing on these forums.

Yes!  I saw this in theatres when it came out, because I was young and stupid.  It was some poor misguided studio executive's idea to make a Die Hard for the younger set.  It was quite bad, and Patrick Stewart looks pretty silly.  In a fairly good metaphor for the film as a whole, Patrick Stewart loses several million dollars as he falls into a pool of shit at the film's closing.

Your move, mrbasehart.

I saw this film last year and was struck by how utterly weird it is.  Quite beautiful in places, just surreal in others, it's directed by Robert Downey Snr.  According to Amazon Marketplace, the cheapest you can buy this on DVD is $150.

One of my favourite 'oldies'. It's just so funny. Saw it first on TNT and loved it ever since, bought the initial single release, then grabbed the series box set as well.

Nick Charles: I'm a hero. I was shot twice in the Tribune.
Nora Charles: I read where you were shot 5 times in the tabloids.
Nick Charles: It's not true. He didn't come anywhere near my tabloids.

Also an 11 year Dean Stockwell, (yes that Dean Stockwell, Quantum Leap, Battlestar Galactica) Shows up as Nick and Nora's Son Nicky in the final film Song of the Thin Man in 1947.

I thought with the Acadamy Awards you guys were on the right track (it was nominated for 4). The 1970 slip was unfortunate, but another question or 2 to determine year, and perhaps another genre would have nailed it a lot quicker.

Well, that sealed it for me, as I was the one who mentioned The Thin Man. ;D

I love the original, but the series tends to repeat itself too much. I'll get the boxset some day...

Hmm... should we keep the difficulty level this high?

Oh, it's quite real, and the babe in the red jumpsuit is "Mary Magnum." I bought the DVD the moment I first laid eyes on it. It's not quite as amazing as the title makes it sound, but it's fun B-movie wackiness. I recommend it. What's not to love about a movie where Jesus and a luchador battle lesbian vampires?

Oh, it's quite real, and the babe in the red jumpsuit is "Mary Magnum." I bought the DVD the moment I first laid eyes on it. It's not quite as amazing as the title makes it sound, but it's fun B-movie wackiness. I recommend it. What's not to love about a movie where Jesus and a luchador battle lesbian vampires?

I just saw Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter and thought it was pretty awesome.  Mary Magnum reminds me a lot of Evangine Lilly, just with big boobs.   ;D

The reason I keep asking that way is that earlier on he mentions that the film was a comedy, yes, but he also went to the trouble of referring to it being a sub-genre.  In my mind that means there then has to be a primary, or 'main' genre. Because it a whole lot more difficult to do a proper search without knowing both.  That and I doubt that anyone would be that deliberately evasive while playing this game...

Comedy is the FIRST genre listed.  However, I was referring to the "big picture" in that it's a very specific kind of comedy (mixed with another genre).  Once again, the title in the original language does not follow the answers I gave to the "lettering" questions.  The answers I gave were for the English title because I was referring specifically to the English version (which is kind of different because the dialogue was not EXACTLY translated).  But because I'm such a good sport, I'll tell you that the first letter title of the movie in its original language comes before N in the alphabet.

  Let me explain my thinking on that.  I was trying to think of genres that would mesh with the "drama" sub-genre and crime seemed too general, so crime/mystery to me is to separate it from crime/action. I think the "drama" eliminates sci-fi or musical as possibilities, but I could be wrong.

An absolutely gorgeous movie from Powell and Pressburger.  Initially, I was put off because it's a - gasp! - ballet movie, but it actually makes the "average" viewer see why ballet is so revered amongst its fans.  It's one of Scorsese's favourites (though most of Michael Powell's work is).

There were 2 options at that point, then I noticed the other one had 'mystery' as a genre, so I decided to take a stab.

The " _______  comedy" will get you closer as will another clarifier that hasn't been brought up yet.

13.   Mystery?    No.
           14.   Screwball comedy?   No,  the whole "blank" comedy theme doesn't seem to be getting us anywhere, so in the interest of moving this along,  let me tell you that "musical comedy" is what I've been looking for.  In some ways, this film could be described both as "screwball" and "dark" but I think these would both lead you away from the complete picture.

Disney was kind of a wasted question, as the movie wasn't made in the US, but at least it got Mary Poppins out of my head.

Could it be Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?

      Congratulations, got it on number 20.  I had a few pictures from the film that I picked up from cinemasirens.com but had no luck putting them up here.   It's an X-rated musical from 1969 starring/written by/ directed by Anthony Newley which has apparently been re-rated R in later years.  Guest starring old comics like Milton Berle, George Jessel and Stubby Kaye plus Newley's wife, Joan Collins in a comedy about a vaudevillian who sleeps around a lot.  His dream girl, Mercy Humppe, was played by the 1969 Playmate of the Year Connie Kreski.  If you're familiar with Newley's other song-writing, Candy man, What Kind of Fool am I? etc.  the songs are the high points of this movie which is only available on bootlegs.  Movie was co-written by Herman Raucher, who later wrote Summer of '42 and The Great Santini.
     Hope I played fair on the questions.  I tried not to lead away from the main points but all those shades of comedy are hard to draw lines around.

(http://img.consumating.com/photos/16477/large/101693.jpg)

The moment I came across this DVD, I knew I must possess it. I was not disappointed. America is a wasteland after the Soviets nuked us in the '50s, the king of Lost Vegas is dead, and Buddy, the Six-String Samurai, means to take his place. But first he must rescue an orphan, battle a bowling team gang, avoid the Russian army, and outrock Death himself. Featuring an awesome soundtrack by Russian surf rock band The Red Elvises! Highly recommended.

    Okay, just to discuss this.  First, who woulda thought there were that many S musicals in the 50s.
       Over 6.5   Singin' in the Rain (no tv series star),   Seven Brides for Seven Brothers has Russ Tamblyn (Twin Peaks) and Julie Newmar (Batman and others) but should it be disqualified as a western?    And,  they both won Oscars.
       Two musicals rated under 6.5 with future tv stars:   Serenade  with Vince Edwards (Ben Casey) and Say One for Me with Robert Wagner (It Takes a Thief and Hart to Hart)
      Somebody else guess.

It's got to be Summer Stock, featuring Phil Silvers.

Yay!

(http://members.aol.com/movieboy5/summer_3.jpg)

Summer Stock is a decent (but not great) musical that features the supreme duo of Judy Garland and Gene Kelly.  Judy had packed on quite a bit of weight due to her "problems", but still manages to keep up with Kelly in a number of spiffy dance scenes.  The best scenes by far, however, are the scenes they have on their own: Gene Kelly manages to make an amazing sequence with just a squeaky floorboard and a sheet of newspaper and Judy Garland sings "Get Happy" in her iconic jacket/tights combination.

I was afraid this might be way too confusing. Bonus hint: this movie is pretty much all footage from an older movie. Unfortunately the original film's cast doesn't get listed on IMDb, making this much harder than I'd intended.

The LA Connection comedy troupe puts on, or at least used to put on, shows where they would do live alternate dialogue while a movie was projected onscreen. For some reason, they made a full-on video for The Blob, even going so far as to give the Blob a cartoony animated mouth. Too bad they forget to make it funny...

The LA Connection comedy troupe puts on, or at least used to put on, shows where they would do live alternate dialogue while a movie was projected onscreen.

I remember that.  They were even on TV briefly, a show they called "Mad Movies."  I remember them as being quite hilarious, but the twenty years of intervening heavy drinking may have clouded my recollection a bit.  They predated MST3K by a few years, too.

Surely there's an archive of these somewhere on the net, though a cursory Google brings up only somebody with discs for sale (http://www.cupandblade.com/store/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=215).

15. Nope.

And since we're at the 3/4 point, I will mention that I gave out a couple of hints in my earlier responses.  But since power search has us down to about 60 films, I won't elucidate further.

Okay if I've worked this out right, there's only three movies that almost/kinda match:

Continental Divide(but it's a comedy)
Crimes of Passion
Death Wish II (but it's an action film)

So I guess the question is:
Is it Crimes of Passion?

So I guess the question is:
Is it Crimes of Passion?

And what a fine question it is, sir!

(http://i13.tinypic.com/2enanhs.jpg)

I first caught this on video shortly after the onset of puberty, and it made an impression.  (In fact, if you look closely at my right palm, you can still see it.)  It features a terrific performance from a shockingly hot Kathleen Turner, and an over-the-top campy turn from Anthony Perkins as a drug-addled, dildo-wielding psychotic priest.

At the time, I thought it was a well made, thought provoking film, but I suspect if I went back and watched it today it would turn out to be crap.  Better to live in the blissful ignorance of hazy teenage memories, methinks.

You have the con, Douglin.
