Mock the Movie: Masque of the Red Death transcript

I can’t believe so many people proclaimed so loudly and strongly that this was a good movie. Seriously. It wasn’t even good as a movie divorced from any knowledge of Poe’s original works. Sorry, Vincent Price. They can’t all live up to your legacy. Not when Roger Corman is trying to prove what he can do with a budget.

Remember to check the Mock the Movie page for transcripts, subtitle files and future airdates! CA7746 sent me SRTs for Mega Python vs Gatoroid, which will be available on that page. Still have to reparse the transcript for Atom Age Vampire, as well.

Mock The Movie: She Gods of Shark Reef transcript

This Mock the Movie event was everything we expected it to be, and so much less. Your usual Corman film from the 50s/60s, with all the drama coming from a hamfisted villain and a nonexistent deity, and the best acting came from the so-called shark, that you could almost believe was actually a full-sized and dangerous creature that was interested in these characters — as long as you squinted and kinda looked at the screen using your peripheral vision.

Mock The Movie: She Gods of Shark Reef

She Gods of Shark Reef theatrical poster

We took a week off last week so we could get Dr Rubidium back in on the action. Of course, we’re going to haze her for taking so much time off by hitting her with a Corman film: She Gods of Shark Reef.

She Gods of Shark Reef -

Two brothers, one wanted for murder, are shipwrecked on an island inhabited by nubile young women who have amassed a valuable cache of pearls.

It’s sure to be a blast. An underwater blast. That will probably involve few to no sharks, few to no gods, and a bunch of She’s. With male protagonists. We’ll be lucky if there’s a reef, quite frankly.

Here’s how we do this Mock The Movie thing:

  1. Start following @MockTM on twitter.
  2. Start watching She Gods of Shark Reef Thursday, June 7th, at 9PM EST. It’s public domain, and available on archive.org — I recommend downloading any version in advance. The MPEG4 is probably the best choice for compatibility.
  3. Once you’ve got She Gods of Shark Reef going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
  4. Let the snark roll on Twitter!
