Mock the Movie: Horror Cliché Edition

This Wednesday September 11, we’re going old school with House of Evil. Boris Karloff, a strange castle, haunted toys? Nom, nom, nom. There’s no trailer available for this one, but how can we go wrong?

This is available on YouTube.

Two weeks later, on September 25, we’re watching Lord of the Flies Meets Hunger Games in Space. I mean Sol, but you know someone pitched this that way.

This is available on Hulu.

Two weeks after that, on October 9, we’re presenting I Love the 80s without the punchlines. Er, I mean Miami Connection, in which a martial arts rock band (I don’t know either) pits their skills against Miami’s drug traders, who happen to be ninjas riding motorcycles.

This is also available to watch for free.

“These all sound awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, they do. “These must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT.
  3. Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM.  Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.

If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.

If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.
