I got to talk to a couple of heroes of mine again-Michael J. Nelson and Bill Corbett of Rifftrax and Mystery Science Theater 3000! We talked about the upcoming "trilogy" of films they'll be riffing LIVE, how they pick which movies to do, and I make things weird because that is what I do.
You'll get to check them riffing live at Edwards/Regal Cinemas in the Marketplace!
There are three films the guys will be riffing:
IN THEATERS APR 18, APR 24
Deep in the Mexican jungle, a legendary creature lurks in a radioactive swamp. Is it a man? Is it an octopus? No, it's OCTAMAN! Okay, it's a man in an octopus suit, but he's really angry and decides to go on a light killing spree.
IN THEATERS JUN 6, JUN 11
RiffTraxLive: Star Raiders
It's the year 2762. The galaxy is plagued with warring factions using hokey special effects to destroy each other. Out of this chaos a hero rises: the dashing, exquisitely bearded Captain Saber Raine (Casper Van Dien). Saber and his elite squad of commandos (other actors) embark on a dangerous quest to save the Prince and Princess of an unnamed planet from the clutches of the Evil Overlord Sinjin - an overlord so evil HIS VERY SKULL IS FILLED WITH CHERRY JELL-O.
