Seriously thank you Robert Z'dar for making this crapfest of bad 80's stereotypes a semi-watchable riffworthy movie.

does anyone see that joe esteve's role in the credits is "the man". Why not "the soultaker"? Also, those two just gave up their immortal souls to have a second chance to live. I like life mostly, but if I had to give up my eternal soul to get it back I'd choose eternity

annotation ppl. you missed the stigmata reference at the beginning. they're the holes in jesus' hands left by the nails of crucifixion. for some reason they are important though like most religious symbols i don't know why.

Just foind out that Robert D'Zar (the big chinned head Soultaker) died April 1st of heart failure. His chin was actually due to a genetic disorder called Cherubism. He was 69 and actually made about 130 movies in his time.

This is one of my very favorite MST3K episodes. It is SO ridiculous. And we get to see Joel and Frank! Furthermore, I enjoy the Shout Factory! annotations. It's kind of like Pop-Up Video. Too bad they don't go bloop bloop when they pop up. XD

Pearl's reaction when Frank says that he's dead is a silent, three-second rebuttal to everyone who says she isn't funny.

I'm really surprised they didn't reference "The Brain/Head that Wouldn't Die" with that torso joke in the beginning of the movie, though.

Wow, just a classic episode. A perfect bookend for the final season. The return of some beloved characters, a classic Joe Estavez stinker, some really classic riffs, the closing credit "alternate ending" gag by Tom and Crow had me in tears. Bobo with 1 dollar at the start of the monopoly game. Just classic stuff. One of the best.

I'm not a huge Sci-Fi era fan of MST3K but I think Soultaker is the tightest written episode of all of the three years there and it is likely because Joel sat in on the writing that week ... this has a lot of Joel-era humor to it mixed perfectly with Mike-era (CC) and Mike-era (Sci-Fi).

Horrible on all levels, of course. Yet in terms of family embarrassments Joe Estevez can still take comfort in the fact it ranks just above his nephews Charlie and Emilio’s disgraceful “Men at Work.”

I liked seeing our hosts visit each other. Now the embarrassing part: I don't think this film is truly the worst of the worst. If you just think of it as a super-dumbed down Eighties version of Orpheus and Eurdyce (but with a cheeseball happy ending), it's kind of fun.

:o I'll just go and stand in the corner now. :o

The plot point about the ship breaking down after ten years does fight the fact that it's apparently over five hundred years old. I suppose Crow must have undergone these breakdowns while he was living alone on the SOL, and then Forrester's sabotage program re-initiated itself after they returned to the present day.

And speaking of which, I suppose there are two SOL's in existence throughout seasons 9 and 10, and a full four Crows; there's the Crow we see here with Mike and Servo, a Crow carving fertility symbols on the old SOL, a Crow living with Mike's family in Wisconsin, and a Crow working at Mike's old temp agency.

If I remember right, this was the first Mike episode I ever saw. I held off for the longest time because I didn't want to get sucked into making comparisons between him and Joel, but when I finally gave in I was glad. Classic episode.
