Mock The Movie: Bride of the Monster Transcript

Bah! In the middle of repairing a busted desktop, which I’ll need if we intend to go through with this 24hr gameathon I’ve got planned with JT Eberhart ready to roll any time soon, so I’ll come back and edit in the subtitle files ASAP. CA7746 also sent along a hilarious screenshot of Bela Eyebrows.

Avicenna of the newly-assimilated A Million Gods joined in on this mockery. Enjoy!

Update: Here’s the subtitle file. Save as (moviename).srt in the same folder as the movie. Also, a screenshot of the kinds of hilarious moments you’ll see if you watch this movie with the subtitle file.

Screenshot: Bela Lugosi's eyes with the caption "@brx0: Bela eyebrows! DRINK!"

All the extra interface stuff is from CompulsoryAccount’s subtitle generating app, which lets him shift people’s views/tweets around and produce an actual, polished, properly-timed mockery. It is truly a work of art to watch one of these movies with our mockery in-line. Trust me. Or don’t even trust me — download the subtitle file and try it out yourself.

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.
