I thought Heavenly Creatures was pretty terrific, though it's not the sort of thing I'd watch over and over again.  Took me ages to realize the chubby girl grew up to be Charlie's stalker in Two and a Half Men.

Wait a minute, Alia Atreides is on Two and a Half Men?

I think the movie Meet the Feebles needs to be riffed

it's like a R rated version of the Muppet show, with allot of  puppet violence, sex, and drug abuse.  this movie is cheezy that its been in for a good riffing. what more could u want in a horrible movie?


I can't believe Peter Jackson would make a movie like this back in the 80's. And yes, its the same Peter Jackson who directed King Kong

I can't figure out which I dislike more: the fact that he referred to Peter Jackson as "the guy who directed King Kong" or that he's surprised that a Peter Jackson film would be horrible. ::)

It hurt me to watch even a few seconds of Jackson's Kong remake. It was that bad. Still, it could be worse. This guy could have said that Jackson's film was "a remake of the 1976 film".... :P
This iRiff will only be on sale for another few hours. Get it while it's cheap!

Speaking of Pete Jackson, I just watched the HD version of Frighteners.  I liked the movie, but the "making of" is crazy! It's almost four hours long.  It's pretty interesting though.  Yes, I watched it all.   ;D

I had the original LD with the 4 hour doc. It wasn't bad.  He loves doing those type of things. When Don May Jr. of Synapse Films was still working with Elite Entertainment (the first company to actually spend money and restore Night of the Living Dead and many other forgotten horror flicks) he told me they wanted to put out Bad Taste and Meet the Feebles but they couldn't come to an agreement because PJ also wanted big ass documentaries to go along with them.

Yeah, I thought the on set footage was really interesting, as you got to see how a film crew works.  It's a shame that those two others weren't released though, I might've bought them otherwise.

I think this movie deserved to be riff to Hell. If not by Mike and the guys, then by iRiffers everywhere.

BTW, any chance the Riff Bros. people can sell their riffs here?

It’s tied up in massive amounts of litigation. Lisa Henson REALLY hates it.

Likely never happening. Anchor Bay bought the rights 15 years ago. Never released it due to this

It’s very similar to why we never get Macross stuff here, because on top of the alegedly recently resolved Japanese rights, Harmony Gold sues anyone who trie to put out the stuff they haven’t licensed (though it’s reacently been brought into question whether they actually own anything due it the Japanese case. This question Likely will not be answered any time soon)
