I think this might actually be worse than Manos.

According to Wikipedia, the movie was made to capitalize off the popularity of the Adam West show, but, a few years later, after the bat craze died down, the movie was re-released as "She Was A Hippy Vampire." Which makes about as much sense as anything.

So Bat Woman never takes off her mask or uses any other name, her headquarters is the living room and back yard of her house, and she gives out the address to anyone who asks. Does the mailbox say "B. Woman"?

Meantime, the villain's master plan:
1. Embark on a years-long life of crime.
2. Hire a mad scientist whose specialty is a drug that makes people dance.
3. Invent a "nuclear-powered hearing aid" capable of eavesdropping on anything.
4. Attempt to patent it (which involves publicly filing complete design specifications).
5. Steal his own prototype.
... All because he gets off on listening to other people's phone conversations and wanted to be able to do it without anyone knowing it was him. I think he could have saved a few steps there.

So, any guesses: Is the bat logo supposed to be a tattoo or hand-painted?

Remember kids, if you get caught cheating on a math quiz in high school your life is over and you should go kill yourself. OR you may just get an hour of detention and NO ONE WOULD CARE!!!

Several have asked how a film such as this could come to be. My personal opinion is that the writer/directors probably went to the bar at a Mid-West dentists' convention and said, "Hey! You guys have money. If you'll pitch in a dollar ninety-eight you can visit the set of the film we're making & introduce yourself as one of the producers to the bevy of desperate, bikini-clad, reasonably attractive, young actresses we'll have on hand! What say ye?" And lo, it came to pass....

This movie was garbage. The middle when bat woman saves the kidnapped girl (wasn't there a murder before..?) is hilarious with or without riffs.

I think we should establish a new awards ceremony for such movies. We can call them .. the Crummies™. I nominate this film for a Crummie™, and I nominate the director for the electric chair, and the script writer for experimental piles surgery. This movie makes Colman Francis's movies look like stories from a genius visionary

This might just be the worst movie on MST3K/worst movie ever made. The nonsense plot, the campy villains, the drug that makes people dance, non-action action sequences, ridiculous masked villain, bimbo girls, random plot points like mole people, crazy henchman, fake mustaches - the SoL crew couldn't even do segments on it; had to stick with cheating.

Jim, the ribcage-challenged dude from "Cheating," is like a low-rent Iago, encouraging Johnny's evil tendencies while posing as his best friend. (See 00:11:50, where he uses the siren call of hamburger sammiches to lure Johnny away from intellectual pursuits.) Also at 00:14:56, we get a reference to the same guy turning up later on in S6's "Why Study Industrial Arts?" Does it count as a callback if we haven't seen the show being referenced yet? [is confused]

Katherine Victor (Batwoman) was Jerry Warren's go-to gal throughout his directorial career. She appeared in more than half of the movies he directed, including his final one, 1981's Frankenstein Island. Later, she became a continuity coordinator for Disney animation. She died in 2004.

You can tell the guy with glasses at Ayjax is Rat Fink just by hearing the very first line he says in the entire movie during the "You're sitting on my lunch," Also, that running gag about sitting on his lunch is possibly the least funny riff in the entire run of the show.
