Depressing Dad is completely right about sometimes having to do things "the other fellow's way"; part of being an adult is knowing when to pick your battles. The riffing is funny, but I don't really think shutting the hell up and saving your anger for more important things is giving into despair.

The detective at the beginning ("Hide behind jive talk", "People bug me, too") was the 3-eyed fry cook in that TZ about the waylayed bus-passengers....

I went to see Reverend Horton Heat recently, and I completely spoiled the punchline to an anecdote he was telling about one of the band members. He brought up this movie, and I yelled out "MICHAEL LANDON!" because it was a raucous concert and I was already drunk. Turns out he was getting to the point that he and the band member used to watch this movie back in Texas and that the other band member had a striking resemblance to Michael Landon, who, he explained, was in the movie. I felt kinda bad about it, but, in my defense, I didn't know he was doing a bit.

The writing and riffing for the films gets so much better with Mike and crew, but I still find myself skipping the Pearl segments at the beginning because they just aren't funny.

And what did we learn today, kids?

That's right: Don't get a mental illness and go see a psychiatrist. Because then they'll turn you into a hideous monster and you will be shot down like a dog in the streets.

This movie has been brought to you by the Church of Scientology.

Regarding Scopolamine...

Believe it or not, the film's pseudoscience isn't as far out there as you'd think. Although Mike and the Bots joke about scopolamine being a made up chemical, it actually exists. In reality, scopolamine is the platonic ideal (as in the perfect embodiment) of a date-rape drug. Scopolamine renders its victims into a highly suggestive state (without apparent detriment to their mental or physical faculties) for a period of hours, after which the victim's memory of the experience is completely wiped. It is the stuff of nightmares.

But to the point: although the doctor's experiment is ridiculous at nearly every level, the use of scopolamine to place our asshole protagonist into a hypnotic state is probably the part most grounded in sense.

Whit Bissel's goal in this movie is eerily similar to the goals of William Hurt's character in Altered States.

One essential difference, though, is that Hurt's motivations seemed to make some sort of sense. The doctor in this movie makes it clear that he's motivated by a desire for fame and notoriety. Meaning... what? That he's planning on publishing a paper detailing his findings from that time when he experimented on an unwilling human test-subject, resulting in the deaths of three innocent teenagers? I don't think the standard mad scientist formula worked here.

"They said I was mad! But we'll see who's mad when I'm done killing indiscriminately!"

interesting facts about Scopolamine{yes it's a real drug}...it's either a motion sickness medicine or, sadly, a powerful date rape drug in South America...

Was doing some light reading with this one on in the background. Heard the music and thought to myself hey The Clash. What seemed instantaneous to me, Tom belts out 'London Calling'. This was promptly followed by a well deserved gut laugh.

The most satisfying moment in movie history is when Michael Landon punches the wanna-be beatnik who thinks he's hip despite being a mid-western high school student in the fifties.

At least this werewolf actually LOOKED like one (at least the movie monster version), as opposed to the manbearpig-bat thing in the god-awful Joe Estevez adaptation.

Is this the only episode without a Wizard of Oz reference? This may be the one (and only) without "How 'bout a little fire, Scarecrow", or, "Poppies!" Don't get me wrong, I love Wizard of Oz. Just noticed this had no such riffs.

I just found out that this movie originally played as a double bill with Invasion Of the Saucer Men, which was later re-made by Larry Buchanan as (dun-dun-DUNNN) Attack Of the The Eye Creatures.
