Mock The Movie: Bride of the Monster

Yeah, yeah. We know. MST3k already pretty much pulled this apart and reassembled it into funny faces like so many Mr. Potatohead parts. But watching people mock crappy movies is not nearly as fun as mocking them ourselves. So, this Thursday, we’re going to take on the Ed Wood “classic”, Bride of the Monster. The trailer:

It’s free to watch via Youtube, and this Thursday we’re going to mock the ever-loving crap out of this movie, Bela or no. (Seriously, I love Bela Lugosi, but he probably would have taken any job at all as long as it paid.)

The instructions for playing along:

  1. Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
  2. Start watching the movie on the appropriate Thursday 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 (or on this post’s comments might work too). 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.

    The backstory is a lot more tragic. Poor Bela Lugosi was actually hoping for a comeback when he starred in this turkey but Ed Wood sealed his fate.

    Let me get this straight: Ed Wood made a movie of the life of Mitt Romney’s wife? This is what, five minutes long?

    Why do you have to live on the other side of the country? 9pm is 12am for me in EST and Thursday is a school/work day.

    Could you do one on a Friday sometime? I would LOVE to participate!

    Looks like YouTube closed the account hosting the movie. Netflix only has it on DVD, and Internet Archive only has trailers and interviews. It looks like Hulu Plus has it, and that’s it.

    Looks like it’s available on Hulu, colorized and B&W, with commercials.

    As someone who’s played Tor Johnson on stage, I object to this entire series of blog posts.
