NOW AVAILABLE - The Bride and the Beast VOD

We’ve seen so many big screen weddings that they’ve begun to feel a touch cliched. Yes yes, the handsome husband sweeps the beautiful bride off her feet. Blah blah, he carries her over the threshold. Yada yada yada, he takes her down to the basement to meet the gorilla named Spanky that he keeps in a cage down there that he had never mentioned owning until that very moment. Etc etc, the chimp escapes and attacks the bride, triggering a relapse to a previous life when she lived as a gorilla herself, interrupted only when the husband guns Spanky down in cold blood. And then they return three of the extra fondue pots they got as wedding gifts.

This is the plot of The Bride and the Beast as written by one Ed Wood. This time around, instead of balling it up in Albuquerque, our characters go on on a honeymoon in Africa. You might think that since a main character has revealed that she was a gorilla in a previous life, this might affect the plot in some way. At least they spend the majority of the movie around gorillas in some capacity. Clearly you have never seen an Ed Wood movie before. No my friend, the plot revolves around deadly tigers, which we think were the alien’s Plan 10. The tigers are played by Fake Bela Lugosi.

The Bride and the Beast is full of bad gorilla suits, absurd stock footage, and last minute realizations that “Oh yeah, this was supposed to be about gorillas, wasn’t it?” Join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for this RiffTrax of The Bride and the Beast.

A reference to Filmation's Ghostbusters in the clip?

Glad to see a new Ed Wood addition to the canon and happy they're doing some black and white oldies lately.

Eh, this may have been written by Ed Wood but it wasn't directed by him.  The direction in this movie was almost competent.  And, I'm personally not too big of a fan of these older movie riffs.  They're fun and funny and all but I get more entertainment from movies past the 1960s or so.

Maybe but it's a nice break from the action movies. Variety is a good thing.

And Ed may not have directed it but it stinks of Woodiness.

I just wrote a brilliant essay about this movie's frank exploration the post-war American heterosexual male's disassociation from his own sexuality, but my computer ate it. In summary, don't wear Keds into the wilderness, dig a 12 inch latrine trench instead of a 10 (just in case), and wear an angora sweater over a bra when you're intimate with your partner (as long as it doesn't freak your partner out.) I'm going to bed.

No, no it was not. It wasn't incompetent in the Ed Wood style, but by any standard is it thoroughly awful.

Rewatched this one recently.  Man, what a snooze.  I mean, even for one of these types of movies.  It feels like a short... 20 minute movie extended into the minimum length to be considered a "movie".  Good riff, though.
