So did Mrs. Dick Courier have a list shorter than 25? Otherwise her #3 would have 23 points, and my #22 would have 4 points.

Some good choices here.  Surprised the Terror wasn't done around the time when they did Little Shop of Horrors and The House on Haunted Hill.  It's not as well known, but it has some BIG names that the guys usually don't have fun with and it is in the public domain.   Surprised Flash Gordon was so low.  I forgot it about it as well.

Vertigo would be interesting the see riffed.  Especially the last scene, which does have the desired shocking effect, but is admittedly silly as well.

88 Minutes is awful.  I don't know if I want to see a riff of it, but I could see it working.  I do recommend the discussion of it on the podcast How Did This Get Made?

I remember Alienator.  I wouldn't be surprised if this happened.  Also, I don't think the creators know what alienate means.

No, no. You and Pak voted for it. On all but one entry the "#3 by Mrs. Dick Courier" translates as "I forgot to edit that out and put in the real totals."
