And so you see why we had to topple the democratically elected prime minister of Iran and install the shah! Without quality petroleum and lubricants our entire society would collapse! The chicken mcnugget would never have come into existence!

Mike mutters "the backwards jackass company" as he's entering the theatre to the short from the texas company. He says it with such contempt you can't tell how much he's joking and how much he just really doesn't like Texas.


It is a puzzlement....

When the blind woman goes into the bedroom because she thinks someone is there... why would she turn on the light?

In the end, we must pity the Brute
Who was cautious, but hardly astute.
In an ironic twister,
Though they shot off his sizzler,
The blind woman still thinks he's cute.

So apparently this movie was a sequel to House of Horrors, and there were supposed to be a series of The Creeper movies, but Rondo Hatton died after filming this. It's too bad. I heard the next movie was going to be called The Brute Man Meets the Grumpy Old Grocer. The movie's tagline? "Creeper, Creeper, Creeper, you give me the creeps!"

"Could those chicks just out of the shell be sent without food on trips of a day, two days, even three? Indeed they can; Nature thought about that, too."

Because in the wild chicks often travel long distances immediately after hatching.

Well, if anyone wanted our chicken, you're too late. Something killed it in the night. My neighbor found it torn apart in his backyard. Alas. I'd almost started liking it.

Poor Tom Neal (aka Tom Dewey); he's really not as bad an actor as is shown here, like in the cheap (but good) noir "Detour." One of the mst3k movies had the same director as did Detour, too. Coincidence?! Probably.

At 44:36, when the homicide detectives are breaking into the Creeper's river shack, this copy completely blacks out. No more video after that point. No sound, nothing, just dead. I've tried it several times and it always cuts out right there, for good.

This episode is one of the funniest, from beginning to end. The laughs just keep coming, the timing is perfect, and Mike and the 'bots had a great time. From the chicken short, to the actual movie, and even the skits, thus is a laugh til you cry presentation that deserves many more votes than 79. I am utterly amazed!

What they dont tell you is the skinny chicken has twice the flavor of the plump one! Also if you don't wash your eggs they will stay fresh almost indefinately, they come out with a coating of some kind of chicken goo that acts a barrier preventing things from reaching the egg and spoiling it...

Excuse me for going on another vegetarian rant, but now that I work at a grocery store slicing meat and cheese (don't ask; it pays well), I can tell you that roughly half of all rotisserie chicken get thrown away. Every night we toss out pounds of unbought chicken tenders, chicken wings, you name it. The chicken of tomorrow my ass. Us Americans are spoiled brats taking animal lives and throwing them away like rocks into the river.
RIP Clucky McCluckster. RIP starving kid in Africa.
And yes, I am being a self-righteous annoying dork right now. Deal with it.

8:57 I sincerely doubt their assertion that "very special photography" was used to peer inside an incubating egg. More than likely, they took a handful of eggs and just started busting them open...and that makes me so sad.
