The Worst MST3K Movie Ever
« on: February 10, 2009, 06:57:12 AM »
Forgive me if there's another thread like this, but I'm curious: what was, in your opinion, the absolute worst film ever featured on MST3k?

I think there is another thread about this (or perhaps it's just a general "worst movie ever" thread), but I'm absolutely certain that Monster A-Go-Go is the worst movie they've ever done - admittedly, I've seen about half of all the episodes, but Monster is by far the worst.  It's perhaps the worst movie I've ever seen.

I believe that's this thread.

Someone needs to revive that.

The one that jumps out for me is The Beast Of Yucca Flats.  It's so terrible, it goes nowhere, has no plot, the actors don't even look like they know what to do or say.  It's.....incredibly bad.

It has gotta be Monster-A-Go-Go hands down.

The whole "we ran out of money so look at the stupid ending we came up with" is priceless.

Yeah that is great.

You just spent the past hour and a half watching something that didn't happen and had no point.

Also why was it called Monster A Go Go any way?

Beast of Yucca flats was the only one I couldn't actually sit through. I just left the episode playing and wandered around the house for a while, then returned when the closing host sketch was coming up.

I think just to take advantage of the groovy 50's cool cat theme song.

Or, at the end, the monster just went go-go away.

The thing is I think I would have rather watched a movie that was an hour and a Half of a monster Go Go dancing then the mess we saw in that movie.

Attack of the the Eye Creatures has got to be in the top 3 worst, IMO.

Hamlet for the Sci-Fi era. It put me to sleep every time and I never fall asleep during a movie. I finally got through it once I had the DVD and could take breaks.

MONSTER A-GO-GO is the only movie, to date, that successfully put me to sleep. And yes, I was watching the MST3K version. It's a miracle Joel and the 'bots survived.

Remember when I once talked about the difference between movies that actually try to be good but wind up sucking anyway, and movies where the filmmakers simply don't give a crap at all? MONSTER A-GO-GO is one of the latter. Just horrific.

That one is terrible, and I can't even get into the riffs.  Once is enough for that one.

Yeah at least the people behind Manos tried before failing.

Well, Herschell Gordon Lewis did piece it together as a favor to his producer so I don't think he was getting paid much if anything.  My votes for worst MST3K movies would probably be Red Zone Cuba, Beast of Yucca Flats, and Monster A-Go-Go.
