Ha! I bet most of you thought sargassum was an innocent plant, unable to communicate or even think, let alone deceive. People are so gullible.

So, what do you think it's lying about, anyway?

This movie sounds bad. As in, the sounds that come from it are terrible. Shrill alarms, incessant beeping, and clunky background music make the film as audibly ugly as it is visually.

No one mentioned Brain Guy's makeup was removed when Pearl threw the medicine ball at his face. They must have decided that the effect looked so perfect they didn't bother to fix his makeup. Brilliant!

This movie has a certain feel to it; it's like sleeping in pajamas made out of spoiled pimento loaf. On second thought maybe "feel" is the wrong description, maybe "residue" describes it better.

This movie was made by a company called Bartow Films, whose studio offices was on Cassat Ave in Jacksonville behind my grandparents house. When the film released, they had the monster stand out on the road with a poster of the movie waiving at the traffic. I stood across the road on the sidewalk and waived at the monster and he waived back!

The opening of the movie looks like Sling Blade just wondering around. This is before Sling Blade was a thing.

And no relation to Tim Burton. Not goth enough. Got the feel, but not the look.

They make comments about how the opening credits say that it was filmed in Switzerland. Today, while I was watching, I noticed that it said all the locations were in Florida. So I did a search and, sure enough, there's a place in Florida called Switzerland. Go figure.

I figured for years that if I watched every MST3K I'd eventually find a Phil Ochs reference, because damn that would just be perfectly obscure. And in the first 10 minutes of this episode, there it is.

...the takes they make between the cooler of Pearl's love stuff disappearing, or appearing are impressively seamless...more-so than any other series I have ever seen employing the same cinematic effect...I wonder how they managed that...always loved everybody involved with this show, but that's pretty hard to do, and they did it several times...

The first time the doctor injects himself with that huge needle, the riff is backwards talking. I didn't get that for years, until I saw a making-of for Pulp Fiction. Turns out most "injection" scenes are shot backwards, with a spring loaded needle. Shown in reverse, it looks like the actor is stabbed with the needle. Great obscure riff!

This movie is one of my unexpected favorites. I watched it not expecting much and by the time it was over, I thought it was one of the best of season 10. The movie is SO incompetently made, but the riffs are SO good and, except for the chewing tobacco thing, all the host segments are perfect (especially SHOE-POLISHING HUMAN! SOON YOU WILL PAY!). This is my sleeper episode. :)
