THE BASICS

Thanks to you, we have done two hugely successful Kickstarters over the past two years that funded us to be able to riff STARSHIP TROOPERS and GODZILLA (1998) + ANACONDA LIVE and simulcast to over 700 theaters across North America. These shows were a big hit, and this year we have the opportunity to perform FOUR RiffTrax Live shows with some of the most awesome bad movies ever. Are you ready? They are:

 – THE ROOM!

 – SHARKNADO 2!

 – MIAMI CONNECTION!

 – SANTA AND THE ICE CREAM BUNNY!

It's a superfecta of bad movies. We call it... THE CRAPPENING.

We did it!  We got the rights to ALL these cinematic masterpieces. Woohoo!!! And we can't wait to riff 'em live. To seal the deal, we'd love your help again. The cost to secure the theatrical rights and for the production itself is beyond doing this on our own, but it does work out if we get a little help from our fans.

So, Kickstarter community, please be a part of our MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000-style funny commentaries for THE CRAPPENING, broadcast LIVE to hundreds of movie screens to a massive audience in a series of four one-night events on May 6, July 9, October 1, and December 3rd, 2015!
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

How did you manage to get the rights to live riff The Room? I would have thought that impossible since Wiseau's people have always seemed ridiculously litigious when it came to the movie.

If it were based on merits, I'd say they threw a rock through Wiseau's window with a $20 wrapped around it.

Oh hai currency.
I survived the San Diego Comic Con 2010 Hall H stabbing.

The Kickstarter page seems to imply there's no chance of Cineplex picking up Ice Cream Bunny or Sharknado 2 in Canada.  I recommend all Canadians that would actually like to see these to email Cineplex corporate on their site and encourage them to reconsider!

Expressed interest in two of the movies.  Not the others.  The fact that the other two are not mentioned speaks volumes.

It got to $75K, their goal, within 10 hours or so after the Kickstarter opened.

I'm excited about the Room and this strange-looking Miami thing. But I'll probably wait for Sharknado 2 and Santa to come to VOD.

Only in the situation where they got permission first and then required the money.
