Sorry MSTies

Good luck to anyone else getting this episode out there.

funniest line ever in an MST3k:
"They should just spray 'Off' on them. You can't beat off in the woods!"
I shot coffee out my nose!

I never actually watched the full episode before, only the beginning. It's creeping me out. And I have to say, I wish I had already eaten. I'm hungry and I don't want to eat while watching ants consume things and people. Yeccchh.

Salvageable premise?

I've seen this one a couple times before it got taken down and while I can say it is a strange film that plods along at a snail's pace, I feel like the concept of hyper-intelligent ants being the monster could have been implemented a little better.

K09 - Phase IV Host Segments

The second "best of" link is a collection of all the available KTMA host segments. The host segments for K09 - Phase IV start at 44:27 and end at 53:35. I tried to adjust the link so that it would begin and end at those specific times, but I was unsuccessful. If anyone would like to adjust the link accordingly, please do so.

where has Phase IV gone... I actually liked this movie... which is hard with any of the MST3K movies that aren't Gamera or Godzilla

Well, it was boring, and the plot twist at the end was one of the laziest, stupidest, cop-out endings I've ever seen, but at least the acting was okay?

Note at around 1:04 or so, something falls over with a loud bang. Joel looks around and says "What happened over there?" Josh tries to cover, saying Gypsy must have dropped something again.

DAMMIT! Link's down.

This flick manages a remarkable feat: it is both fascinating and dull.

I will be reading Malzberg's novelization, for sure. The story is right up his alley, and I think he can do more with the idea.

Actually not a bad movie. Kind of slow and thoughtful. The ending was kind of abrupt, though.

The first non-Gamera MST that has been "recovered" by fans... The original pilot and episodes k01-03 has some footage available, buy only k04 (the first of five Gamera films watched in a row) and onward have full tapes floating around.

Watching this movie is a lot like watching paint dry!

It's so cute, all the sort of preproduction bots and whatnot.

So strange seeing the early incarnation of MST3K. Really glad they hung in there and stayed with it.
