Definitely a darker tone to the films selected in the later Mike years when they started riffing more horror films, and became less of an all-ages program, which I think you could say about the Joel years for the most part.

This one is painful, like a long, drawn-out, poorly-acted episode of 'Tales from the dark side'.

This movie always confused me, because the opening riffs during the extended title sequence imply that the guy in the car is the devil. So then I got all confused about which one was in fact beezlebob.

A bit of trivia: the woman who plays Lucinda in this movie, Jeanne Gerson, plays Marka the old cook in "The Bride and the Beast", which is a newly released title over at Rifftrax.

So if Melissa is, like, 120 years old and her dad in the witch scene is not Luther the sweaty walnut rancher, who the hell are Luther and Molly? Melissa's grandkids?

Okay, so what I don't get about this movie: the whole point of the end is that the "hero" is going to free the girl from her pact with Satan so that he doesn't have any power over her anymore. He does that and she gets old and starts to die. Who was surprised that Satan tricked her? ...and then, he turns around and binds them BOTH to Satan so that she doesn't die. WHAT WAS THE POINT OF FREEING HER, THEN?

...or did I miss something?

With the long driving scene over the opening credits, I had this fear he was going to turn left into Valley Lodge.

that part about the "herd of grandmas" is the most hilarious mental image I've ever had recently from watching MST3k XDD

Actually not a bad story. Could be a good movie if it wasn't for the bad acting, bad dialog, poor production values, and glacial pace.


1 laugh

That part about 10 minutes or so in, where Servo says 'cloody' or however you spell it...Mike and Crow's response to it, I can totally see that whole discussion happening among the crew when one of the writers came up with that riff.

Ha, ha, ha, well, now that we have all had a good long laugh at the expense of walnut farmers, The Walnut Growers Association would like to remind you that the characters and events depicted in this film were fictional and do not represent the vast majority of walnut growers. Only a small percentage of walnut farms, perhaps 15%-25%, 40% tops, have young daughters who are in fact 120 year old satanic witches with a brunt to a crisp but still living sister witch who indiscriminately pitchfork’s to death innocent townsfolk. You simply cannot condemn the hard working walnut grower’s community as a whole for the actions of a few bad nuts (ha, ha, ha). Thank you for your attention and remember to keep buying and eating walnuts, The Dark One commands it!

The million references to farm activities in which walnuts take the place of livestock..'calving a walnut'...'those walnuts are TEARING through the hay!'...I pee myself. it's almost enough for a drinking game. I actually saw this once before I saw the MST3K version.

Grandma Servo is one of my favorite segments ever! Haven't seen this in years but the moment Mike started getting poked with a little pitchfork it all came flooding back.

Holy crap! Servo actually pronounced pecan properly! He’s the first non-southerner I’ve heard do that.

Fun Fact: It's actually possible to make walnut liquor. In Italy, it's called Nocino and in France it's called Vin de Noix. I just felt like sharing that. If anyone decides to invent the "Touch of Satan" cocktail, I guess one of these could be your base. L'Chaim! :D

Mormo
In Greek mythology, Mormo (Greek: Μορμώ, Μορμών, Mormō) was a spirit who bit bad children, said to have been a companion of the goddess Hecate. The name was also used to signify a female vampire-like creature in stories told to Greek children by their nurses to keep them from misbehaving. This reference is primarily found in some of the plays of Aristophanes.[1][2] He is also referenced in The Alexiad, which goes to show that Mormo was still taught to children during Byzantine times.
orgo
Gorgo may refer to:

Another name for the Gorgon
Gorgo (film), a 1961 movie, or its protagonist, the fictional giant monster Gorgo
Gorgo, Queen of Sparta, 5th-century B.C. Queen of Sparta, daughter of Cleomenes and wife of Leonidas I
681 Gorgo, an asteroid
Gorgo, a former brush-footed butterfly genus now included in Erebia.

So, not really names for the Devil. More associated with
Hecate
Hecate or Hekate (ancient Greek Ἑκάτη, Hekátē, pronounced /ˈhɛkətiː/ or /ˈhɛkət/[1] in English) is a chthonic Greco-Roman goddess associated with magic and crossroads.
Just in case you were curious.

How can a movie about witchcraft and Satanism and cold blooded murder be so incredibly DULL?

The episode is funny, granted--but the film is like getting sold insurance at church :P

This serves as a surprisingly functional and coherent movie. Not a GOOD movie, mind you. But this and The Leech Woman are probably the best I've seen from an "actual, functional movie" standpoint.

The weird thing is that she says "This is where the fish lives", not "This is where the fish live". So she's implying that a single, lone fish lives in that pond, and she's familiar with it.
