This is possibly my favorite episode. The Packers jokes, the talking spider puppets, and the Invasion of the Body Snatchers host segments.

Steve Brodie, the "star" of this gem, as Dr. Vance, had some pretty impressive credits earlier in his career. He's the guy Jane Greer shoots while Robert Mitchum and him are fighting in noir classic "Out of the Past." Too bad he ended up in this kind of dreck.

I swear Kevin Murphy must've just *loved* to do this show. He's all over the place and is easily my favorite on the show. Servo, Bobo, the Nanites, the voices, etc.

Oh gods this movie is one of my favourites .. scared the shit out of me watching this when I was young .. and made me laugh myself into a fuzz now I'm an adult. Some my my fave riffs in this episode. Possibly one of my fave MST3K episodes ever .. runner up being Season 8 Ep 20 "Space Mutiny" .. "Look out .. we'll be reaching speeds of 3!!"

So I've been going through every episode in order, and this is the one I'm currently watching immediately after the Packers won to get into the playoffs. Irony.

I love how much that scientist lady fails to sound intelligent. It starts with that very odd remark about how a teaspoon of super-dense matter "could only be lifted with a giant crane". Who talks like that? Are theoretical giant cranes a superlative scientific benchmark? She might as well be saying "In technical terms, a neutron star could beat up Superman."

Remember how Alan Hale would look into the camera in Gilligan's Island? He does it here at 13:54. He also broke the forth wall in The Crawling Hand. Awww...

Well, I think I laughed the hardest when the giant spider changed gears as it crossed the field, followed by the people tumbling over each other down the hill.

I think the most underappreciated riff is tom saying "This can't Wisconsin there's no signs for the Tommy Barrett watershow" because anyone outside the midwest wouldn't understand. It still makes me laugh every time.

im sure someone else noticed this but horrifying blonde guy who owns the farm the spiders land on is also a witch burner in Touch Of Satan. Im actually impressed by how nauseating his portayal of this character is. Its hard to drum up that much hate/disgust/twitchtiness without pure talent. Maybe Phillip Seymore Hoffman or Crispin Glover . I mean he is just oozing with spousal abuse, lechery and incest. But, aside of that, this is one of my all time faves. The super sexist scientist guy with Barbara Hale has a lot of D bag competition.

At around 27:30 I must admit I laughed so hard the food fell out of my mouth. Also, "MOSES MOVE THE BIKE" will always be one of my favorite riffs.

The giant spider was a volkswagen covered in fur with legs controlled by crew inside, and they drove it backwards so the break lights would be its red eyes. Haha. Thank you wikipedia and the people who don't have lives who find that information.

What writer, director, stage hand, film critic, best boy, viewer or anyone else for that matter thinks that there needs to be a scene about a back brace? What does that add to the film?

According to his Wikipedia page, Bill Rebane, the director of this awful movie, is the "the producer, director, writer, and cinematographer on 12 independent feature films, all of which have enjoyed successful international theatrical release." He clearly edited the page himself.
