Horrors of Spider Island
10 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

As the new MST3K Netflix original was being promoted I decided to expose myself to some of the old episodes available for streaming on Hulu and Netflix (there is a different random selection on each platform). Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy the torture they are put through. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the extra material broadcast from the satellite of love. This one approaches the so bad it's good category for me. It brought some fun and laughs with its cheesy writing and effects. This German film filmed in Yogolavia is also known as Body in the Web. A manager and his troupe of sexy dancing girls being trapped on an island is nothing new. The scale of the spider puppet is confusing (and are there supposed to be many around the island?). Its bite turns him into some kind of beast (without eight legs), but when the spider or the man-spider bites the women they simply die. A low-budget horror that does not deliver on its tagline "Blood-Curdling! Hair-Raising! Spine-Chilling!"

Hercules Against the Moon Men

The Italian Hercules cycle of films throwing the Greek/Roman hero into further out-there adventures is another sub-genre the boys love to skewer. It was difficult to sit through the cheesy effects and the absurd plot. The rock monster costumes actually look pretty good, but are cumbersome for the stunt guys to fight in, while the moon men costumes are completely awful. Alan Steel nè Sergio Ciani with his oiled muscles played Hercules at least a half dozen times. Everything about this is cheap.

Whether it is Joel or Mike watching these awful movies with the bots I do not envy the torture they are put through. Their snarky comments add some entertainment value, but my ratings are based on the movie's quality itself and not the extra material broadcast from the satellite of love. A kind of proto-Encino Man. A wannabe teen heartthrob with an impossible pompadour, a Fay Wray type girl, and her bumbling grandpa find a living caveman (Richard Kiel) in the desert. Throw in some King Kong tropes and a clichèd tame rock song of the period that is supposed to appeal to the teen audience while a "monstrous" neanderthal grunts his way around suburbia while all he really wants to do is protect his cave home and you've got it.
