The next CT release will be...
« on: May 28, 2008, 05:47:31 AM »
"Doomsday Machine"!!

I've actually seen this piece of crap unriffed, and can't wait! It's part of the Mill Creek "Nightmare Worlds" box set of 50 crappy movies for one low price. This is one of the most riff-worthy movies I've ever seen, and would have been PERFECT for MST3K. It's everything they could want in a movie. Preposterous plot. A "BJ"... (Hunnicutt from M*A*S*H, that is.) Non-funny comic relief. A spaceship made from random visual effects borrowed from another movie so it never looks the same twice. A twitchy evil astronaut. Explosive decompressions. An ending filmed years later with different actors in non-matching space suits. It really drags near the end, but with some slight trimming, they might be able to pick up the pace.

Apparently, they have three episodes in post production, one of which is probaby "Wasp Woman". They're aiming for a mid-June release for "Doomsday Machine". I just hope they have all their episodes cleared for internet download, and cleared for Canada, too.

Nope, it's a "print your own cover" when you buy from EZtakes.

Ugh. I watched this one on my own as well.

At some point they'll do a movie that DOESN'T make me want to come up with interesting ways to kill myself, right?

In short, this movie teaches us that the human race is better off extinct. I'm not exaggerating at all. It has humans living at what I hope is an exxagerated low.

Still, could be a fun riff.

EZTakes sells the non-riffed version of the movie, and it does appear to be downloadable in Canada. That looks promising. Hopefully, that means the CT release will be as well. If you're wondering about other countries, you might want to check the page for the unriffed DVD:

http://www.eztakes.com/store/movie/The-Doomsday-Machine-Movie-Download.jsp

It it shows you the purchase price, hopefully the CT release will be available, too. If it says "Not Available In Your Country", you may be out of luck.

They seem to be on a hunt for the next Manos, which is not exactly what I want from them.  But I'll buy everything they sell and roll over as well.

All I want is a damn case for my DVD, dozens of other distributors have managed to do that much for less.

Word.  I don't think that's too much to ask.

Anyone know if this is going to be available outside the U.S. this time? I'd post over at the forums but I can't be bothered  :)

I guess it depends on who owns the overseas rights to this movie.  Please stay tuned.
