I decided to watch the Hor-Riff-ic Productions riff of the first Friday the 13th again. Turns out the reauthored version I have is for the original track, not the redo they did for their 5th anniversary. While I remember liking the redo a little better, this still hold up amazingly well. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In riff pacing, vocal performance, and writing, it feels like one of their later tracks. It's rare for a riffing group to start out this strong.


Oh great, now she's going on about her dreams. Kill her! Please, somebody kill her!

Ooh, he should have marked that package as fragile.

"Go!" Packers! "Go!" Packers!

Gary singing the porn music is hysterical!

Ohhh. Now the whole camp is gloomy.

SHAAARK! Man, this camp is really unsafe!

Friday the 13th part 2 - Still a pretty early track by Hor-Riff-ic Productions (I think it was their third or fourth), but you'd never know it. Their writing, perfromances and especially banter is very strong here.


There we go. I've established that we have a chainsaw. And now I'm done with it.

(Jason steps through a puddle) Hey, he didn't drown. Good for him.

I love it when Erin does the che che ah ah sound to the tune of the Hitcock show theme.

So is Jason's shack on Google Maps? Because nobody seems to have trouble finding it.

Friday the 13th part 3 - My favorite of Hor-Riff-ic Productions' Friday the 13th riffs. The movie itself is very fun, and their riff is excellent. The movie gives them a lot to work with. My favorite being the pot smoking hippie couple.


I had the same look on my face when I saw Ace Ventura 2.

I love the discussion during the beginning credits about Ernest Scared Stupid.

"Behind me. I heard this cracking." It was Jimmy! He had corn!

Friday the 13th part 4 - Hor-RIff-ic Productions has really hit their stride by this point, and this movie provides Crispin Glover, Corey Feldman, and lots more material to riff on. They have great banter between the three of them.


Look, it's WESSEX County. No wonder it's always crawling with horny teens.

Are the crickets just inside, or are we hearing their thoughts?

"Tommy is in the house!" - He can't hear me. Or feel me near him.

Normally Friday the 13th characters spend most of the movie hiding from Jason. Rob has decided to take the bold aproach and actively search for Jason. Lets see how that turns out.

I love the extended bit after Rob yells "AHH! He's killing me!"

Of all the riffing groups that have had open submission riffs, Horr-RIFF-ic seems like the one you can't tell easily. I remember this and thier Leprechaun riff not seeming at all tonally different than thier other riffs, the only riffs that stood out as not thiers to me were the ones I recognized because I wrote them.

I don't know if its because they work hard to make the jokes thier own, or if its easier to write in thier voices because of how well the characters are established, probably both.

I find it easy to write in their voices because I am so familiar with their riffs. I'm sure they have a lot of riffs to choose from and can choose the ones that fit the best.

Friday the 13th part 5 - The last riff they've done in the series, so far. They are great, as always. The movie gives them plenty of different material to work with, too. 
Hor-Riff-ic Productions will eventually get back to riffing, they have a baby now so that understandably gets in the way.

Voorhees tombstone provided by The Little Rascals.

"Are you okay?" What kind of question is that ot ask someone checking into a mental institution?!

Ah yes, the obligatory poo scene. This must be a Friday the 13th movie.

Where are they going? Where else would they be going, they're RUNNING AIMLESSLY INTO THE WOODS!

Frozen by Cinester Theater. I do enjoy this movie. It's main flaw is that all the songs except Let It Go are completely unnecessary and shoehorned in. The riff is excellent, as always. This is a newer riff of theirs, so it has Brooks as well as the original Shawn and Keith. He's plenty acclimated to the group dynamic by now, and they all work well off each other.

Hey, they built Steve Buscemi.

I love the running riffs about the lack of furniture.

Best timed fart joke ever!

"And a sun balm of my own invention. Ya?" - Don't drink it, though. It gets you fucked up. Ooh hoo.

Chevy News shorts 1-10 by OneWallCinema - A news series made by Chevrolet to highlight how their vehicles can be used...as dangerous places to cram animals. And other bizarre things to do with animals.
I enjoyed these riffs. Although to be honest it is occasionally difficult to hear the riffs over short.
These riffs feature the ongoing story of Steve The Super Dead Guy and his widow.



This one comes with your very own puppy oven!

No Laryy, they told us in sensitivity class we cannot call roads broads.

Here comes, here comes Spud Racer! He's a demon on wheels!

Finally, it's the News. Where it's not a big corporation telling us what to think.

Welcome to Cliffy McCliffface. Damn you, internet!

"At Flint Michigan" Drinking water is great!

"a campaign to make careless drivers and absent minded padestrians" into speedbumps!

Draw me like one of your French turtles.

I LOVE the failed trumeting noise when the bugle boy is playing.

"And the Blue Sky Barbershop movies on. Trailing more customers." Are they tied to the bumper?

Thanks Darth!

K2 and I were laughing reading some of those lines you picked. (The parts still make us laugh which is great)

I think some of the audio thing probably just depends on how it’s being played back. They sound fine on my Mac but on my laptop there’s a few lines that aren’t as clear. Then on my ipad the riffs come across way louder. We tried to pick a happy medium.

Anyways, we really should finish up the last few Chevy News chapters to find out if Steve is still super dead. Maybe he makes a full recovery!!

Rabbit Ears -- "And Then There Were None" (1945) -- Ten guests are boated out to a rich guy's rented-out island, where their host mysteriously fails to make himself known, and one by one, the guests not-so-mysteriously croak.  This was the first of numerous adaptations of Agatha Christie's famed novel, and one of the closer-hewing as well.

Rabbit Ears, in what was their first release, put together some pretty good riffs, even though the performance was a bit stage-y at times.  The only real problem, I thought, was the movie they chose to riff on was actually pretty well-done and engaging, to the point where I was sometimes trying to tune the riffs out to follow the dialogue.  Still, fun overall, and the host segment skits were amusing as well.

FilmRoasters -- "Cat Women of the Moon" -- Five astronauts land on the moon, only to find it's occupied by a lot of middle-aged women and thousands of cats... no, wait.  *checks notes*  It's occupied by feline-humanoid hybrids who use their vastly superior powers... no.  *checks notes again*  They find some women in black leotards who want to steal their spaceship, and won't even *try* to catch the red laser dot.

This riff from FilmRoasters was good, but it didn't consistently make me laugh me the way their other riffs have.  Some parts of it felt too lowbrow for even my taste, though not enough to sink the overall effort.  There's enough here that's entertaining to make this a mild recommend from me.

Cinester Theater -- "Star Trek: Voyager - 'Phage'" -- A couple aliens, possibly acting on a directive from the audience, remove Neelix's lungs and flee, but Janeway, who clearly wants the hurting to continue, pursues.  Cinester Theater generates a lot of laughs from their riff on one of Voyager's worst episodes, so if you can gird yourself for Neelix at his whining-est, check this out.

[ https://www.rifftrax.com/iriff/cinester-theater-presents-star-trek-voyager-phage ]

Dogknob -- "Star Trek: Voyager - 'Prime Factors'" -- Voyager makes it to Planet Skeevy, where the people are all about the pleasure, and it pleases them to tease Voyager's crew with their super-stealable-transporter tech.  This was one of Voyager's few 1st season Pretty Good episodes, which makes it a shame that Dogknob's riff is... not.  They get off a few good zingers, in between the lazy ones and the extended fart-noise-making.  But unless you're determined to partake of all the Voyager riffs, like me, this one is skippable.

[ https://www.rifftrax.com/iriff/dogknob-star-trek-voyager-prime-factors ]

Quiptracks -- "Equilibrium" -- Christian Bale, a Cleric charged with enforcing the rule of an emotionless dystopian regime, is forced to examine his beliefs after Sean Bean is killed and a cute puppy is threatened.  As the horrifying realization that he's stuck in a grey future run by Sean Pertwee's head dawns, he starts shooting everything in sight.  Understandable.

This is a terribly dumb movie that wants to Make a Statement without having to do any thinking along the way, and as such is a great target for the Quiptracks crew.  The riff is hilarious all the way through, particularly towards the end, when the movie's given up all pretense of being 'deep,' or making 'sense.'

Listened to this last night/this morning.  Pretty entertaining deconstruction--I'm certain you put more thought into the movie in those 40 minutes than the filmmakers did.

I just realized I only got up to Part 9 of the Great Alaskan Mystery (and I missed part8). I will try to finish these this weekend.
