If it wasn't for the stupid phone in the short, those two idiots could of taken off for their " Honey Moon" ASAP without having to sing to inanimate objects, smoke a cartoon of ciggys, or bother gay angels with their tomfoolery. But alas, how hot would it of been? Judging by the sexy twin beds in the house, probably not so erotic.

This episode is highly overrated judging from the comments here. I watched both versions since I fell asleep so many times watching the regular version, I decided to give the Thanksgiving version after reading the comments. But my opinion hasn't changed; this movie is more boring than Red Zone Cuba

Jeezus, talk about cheap... they've lifted pretty much the entire music score from Attack Of The Giant Leeches, including the jerky, staccato-plagued, spazzed-out opening theme.

And, what's with all the Steves? Granted, my journalism class in my senior year of high school had three guys named Mike (including me), but that was by accident; the writers of this stinkburger included two (three?) guys named Steve on purpose. I haven't been this confused since I struggled to keep the Kens sorted out in Fugitive Alien.

At around 1:18:20
Crow: "Ugh, the blood beast got mad and spun shitties on the lawn."

How the hell did they get away with that on basic cable in 1996? I wonder if that was a fight with the network, with someone having to argue that the word "shitty" referring to a donut and the word "shit" are distinct things.

I found a movie on YouTube called "The Brain Eaters" which stars Dave-Steve actor Ed Nelson. He's even wearing the same coat as he does in "Bloodbeast".

So I do a little research and find out that Corman executive produced "Brain Eaters" without being credited and that Nelson was part of the Corman movie making crew for a while. He even played the crab in "Attack of the Crab Monster"

And on top of that, Nelson's son Christopher appears in a super cheesy 1980s scifi flick called 'Without Warning", currently (October 2016) being shown on Comet TV, which was directed by the infamous Greydon Clark of "Final Justice" fame.

It's a small, cheaply made and heavily padded movie world !

The actress that plays Donna in this, Georgianna Carter, also played in another Corman film called 'The Wild Ride' opposite Jack Nicholson. She had one other acting credit on a TV show and that was it. Must have found something else to do.

This series is the ultimate for hilarious quips. The "Snap him in 1/2 like a frozen dog" reminds me of "Animal House" where the guy has to use a chainsaw to cut the dead horse in 1/2 to fit thru the door.
Maybe "Wilbur" needs to hand out samples of that "Angel dust" so that short makes any sense, WTSF was is supposed to be about anyway ??? "This is your mind"... "This is your mind on Angel Dust, any questions ?" ????
The creature reminds me of Zath Rowsdower for some odd reason, except the creature doesn't talk in a Canadian accent (just WAY 2 much Reverb).

It's the 50's man .. the worst fate they could possibly ever imagine back in those days is not being married, or having a kitchen without the most futuristic appliances. And the worst, most grotesque, most icky, horrible death ever was being strangled.

Then came John Carpenter in the 80's who promptly showed us what a REAL nasty bastard of a alien a monster should be. .. I refer to 'The thing' of course. If you'd unleashed that .. or any modern alien on the 50's they'd have exploded quicker than the 'Eye creatures' .. though probably because they'd have thought the monster wasn't married (oh the horror .. the shame!!)

But every time I get to Season 7, my heart aches for TV's Frank. Not that I don't love all the rest of the crew, it's just that TV's Frank added that 'je ne sais quoi'...and that maniacal laugh.

I must say that after viewing them back to back, I definitely prefer the original host segments on S07E01T (currently Link 3) to their replacements in S07E01 (currently Link 1). Always good to see Satan and Mr. B Natural again. My only disappointment was that they didn't do anything excruciating to the drunken Jack Perkins.

I want Guillermo del Toro to remake this with a few people that can act and a new script. Obviously, better special effects. You gotta hand it to Corman (okay he didn't direct but still), a movie with only one set could be a lot worse - this one isn't so terrible by MST3K standards. I think it's doomed not by the story but the script. A wounded animal that big isn't good.

OK, this has been bugging me:
Were there alternate host segments for this episode? I seem to remember watching this one with different host segments.

Does anyone else remember this? Or have I gone completely bonkers? Or both?

This episode holds special meaning to me for a number of reasons. 1.) It was the first one I caught when it initially aired on a local tv station up in Green Bay, Wi. 2.) I remember it confused the heck out of me at first because all previous ones I had seen were Joel and T.V.'s Frank (Yes, my first Mike episode) on Comedy Central. 3.) My confusion was quickly forgotten as the camaraderie and endless side splitting riffs totally won me over. Great episode.

This episode is great for the camaraderie between the guys-- they laugh a lot at each others riffs, something they don't usually do. I think Tom Servo starts it, like he has a bit of the giggles, then it spreads to the other guys. I like it; it really shows a warmth between them.
