Laserblast, July 13: MST-3K Volume XVIII
This Tuesday, June 13, finds us scraping the bottom of the barrel, searching for new horror, fantasy, and science fiction titles being released on DVD or Blu-ray. The only item of interest is MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000: XVIII. This four-disc DVD box set offers four episodes of the classic television show, in which Joel Hodgson, Mike Nelson, and the ‘bots spoof such sub-par far as THE LOST CONTINENT, CRASH OF THE MOONS, THE BEAST OF YUCCA FLATS, and JACK FROST. Bonus features include:
- Introductions by actors Frank Conniff (TV’s Frank) and Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo)
- Original Mystery Science Theater Hour Wraps
- A Look Back at The Beast Of Yucca Flats
- Original Trailers & Promos
- 4 Exclusive MST3K Mini-Posters by Artist Steve Vance
After that, this week offers only a handful of obscure direct-to-video titles. Those who cannot resist a bargain may be tempted by the FEEDING THE MASSES HORROR COLLECTION, a four-disc set featuring such sterling productions as NECROVILLE, SPLATTER DISCO, FEEDING THE MASSES, and CREATURE FROM THE HILLBILLY LAGOON.
