Rank a Riff - Help Community By Voting :D

Sooo, what did you think? 

I feel the Rank a Riff thread is very useful in determining the quality of a rifftrax. So I ask users that have downloaded this Riff, please let your voice be heard by the poll and by the comments!

I gave it a 7.  I may pop it up to 8 after another watch... as I really get the feeling I need to watch it again to let it grow on me.

It's a good solid riff, but I reeeeally think they ruin these things by constantly comparing them to the Ice Cream Bunny and weird stuff like that.  When they do that, I really expect something just effing bizarre and just.... insanely dumbfounding.  Yet this movie was a fairly average foreign "horror" film of the era, and not all that "wtf?!" inducing.

I've had the same issue with the last few they've said are "The 'Ice Cream Bunny' of (genre)"  ... They've all seemed fairly normal, so they never even remotely live up to expectations.  While others that they DON'T compare to bizarre shit end up being friggin weird.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Don't you mean "help THE Community"?  The way you keep phrasing it sounds like you're bringing that NBC show into this.

Maybe he's just trying to piss off Lionel Twain?

I'll go with 8 on this, pretty consistant laughs, but nothing side splitting.

It's Mexico's "Plan 9"!

Yeah, it's probably closer to Plan 9 than the Ice Cream Bunny.  Just dumb with bad 'effects' ....  but it didn't leave me staring dumbfounded thinking "what the hell am I watching?!" even once, which is what their promotions made me expect.

I guess it's my fault considering they've said that about the past 5 VOD releases too...

I gave it an eight. It's a very high eight however, so close to a nine. In other words an 8.9 or 8 and a half stars with just a little bit more jagged pieces protruding to subtly suggest it is in fact very close to a 9 but not quite. Almost.

What a bizarre film. My girlfriend and I had a lot of fun puzzling over the plot afterward. A brain cabinet. Yes. We need one of those....because like The Braniac we suck...hah. I'm going to go tongue myself to death now.

I gave it an 8. I love black & white, poorly dubbed sci-fi/horror films like this.
