We’ve had a little break, some time away from awful movies, but this Wednesday we’re back. Hulu took our planned choice away from us, so we’re going with a classic. What more could you want than Lon Chaney Jr. without the monster makeup in Indestructible Man? What? A plot? Editing? Believable conflict? Don’t be silly.
We can mock this one on YouTube.
We currently have the next movie scheduled for the first Wednesday in January. That happens to be New Year’s Day this year. What does everyone think: Do we run it on the holiday or wait a week until we’re better rested?
“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:
- Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
- Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. EDT.
- 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!
- 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.
