MST3K Marathon

Netflix has some MST3K on watch instantly, so I'm doing a MST3K marathon.

MST3K: The Robot vs. The Aztec Mummy (1957)
They should show this movie in film school as an example of what not to do. They threw everything into a blender (hypnotism, reincarnation, cursed tomb, living mummy, evil scientist, snake pit, acid disfigurement, revenge, revived corpse, "living robot") and then had it narrated to take any excitement out.

MST3K: Ring of Terror (1962)
You know the ghost story about the guy who goes into the graveyard at night on a dare and dies of fright? "The Graveyard Wager" Yeah. Imagine that as a full length movie.

MST3K: First Spaceship on Venus (1960)
This was actually a pretty good movie, for an old East German/Polish film based on the novel "The Astronauts" by Stanisław Lem. Interracial cast journeys to Venus. They discover that the Venusians had planned to invade Earth but been destroyed by their own weapons. So it is an anti-nuclear weapons movie. But pretty cool for it's time.

MST3K: The Indestructible Man (1956)
A scientist uses electricity to revive a dead criminal. Effectively performing a Defibrillation (The first use of Defibrillation on a human was in 1947. Although the criminal was dead too long for this to have really worked.) Now-a-days we know that revived people don't come back with super powers, but it must have been a strange enough to be a possibility back then. Anyway the now "indestructible" criminal decides to kill his partners who betrayed him.

MST3K: Tormented (1960)
Man kills his ex-girlfriend and is haunted to his death by her ghost. Ho-hum.
