Joel and the Bots refer to the Mysterons as 'Mysterions'. Maybe they'd been listening to the 'Nuggets' album.

Right at 9:48- right when that monkey wakes up - I "swear" I heard Joel say (satirically speaking the part of the just-awakened monkey) "S#\t am I tired!"- I had to stop, go back & listen to it again to make sure, but, yeah, that's what I heard, at least 2 or 3 times. He says it sorta quiet-like; not a whisper, but in a sort of soft voice-I don't know if it was, like a "slip"(Freudian or otherwise) but it's there, unless, it only sounds like that...that word. maybe if the sound was enhanced, there'd be revealed something else said. But for now, I'm sticking by what I heard!!

OK-short: bad. Ross=bad guy. Shows how awful zoos were back then (how much better are they today? I know they try to have a more conservation approach to the animals, but how do they go about getting specimens in the wild? Why terrorize these creatures, why not at least, shoot 'em w/a tranq. dart, so they are anaesthetized & don't feel pain & sleep through the horror! BTW -I was 100% w/Joel when Ross was chasing the cub: "what if the mother cub came around now?" -yeah, I had the same thought, just B4 he said that! I was thinking: "I wish mama bear was right by: Ross would've gotten mauled like you wouldn't believe; he'd have gotten torn to shreds! & then U had the "Emo Philiips"-looking "Seminole"-wearing a DRESS??-was that supposed to be a male "Seminole"? How degrading for Seminoles to be portrayed as zoo mercenaries helper in kidnapping wildlife to sell to urban zoos, like filling a grocery order. Jeez. I hear you guys, whe you said "I'd like to apologize to everybody everywhere!" - no kidding!! Plus, it seemed like some of those animals weren't all that smarter than Ross! The big galoot!

That scene at 49:48 and +, when Vaughan sees the Komodo Dragon (hear Servo reference The Freshman -"here he is, your Komodo Dragon"-you have to have seen it 2 get it) well-remember, Servo sees the lizards fighting & then says "hey, this looks familiar..." and again: "no really, I've seen this B4" -yeah, me too: that was the same stock footage used from King Dinosaur when those male & female "astronauts" (RU kidding? Astronauts? not even close) get to some planet that is like a stone-age earth -and 1of the girls sees this island& wants to get to it, so when they do, they come upon a bunch of dinosaurs, including "dinosaurs" which R nothing but a blown up Komodo Dragon & a monitor or something, w/a fin pasted on its back!)-but seriously: the exact same footage! Also, that "god who kills w/a touch" (from what the dummies can deduce) turns out to be a radiation suit for this old survivor-anyway that suit was used for the alien creature in Bloodbeast -remember! Looks like very little wasted footage in Corman's movies!

Aren't there moral implications to riffing Lassie? Who's next, Kermit the Frog? IS NOTHING SACRED?!? :-)

Some sort of snafu going on. Video is not available in your country? When did that happen?

D'ja see: about 49:48 -when the Komodo dragon & the "lizard"(with the fin pasted on its back) were fighting in that stock footage;I thought that looked familiar-I knew I'd seen it B4: then, even Servo too, said "hey, that looks familiar...; I've seen that somewhere B4" and so on...well, I remembered where: KING DINOSAUR! (season 2, ep., uh, 10, I think-but for sure, season 2) the diff. was in King Dinosaur, these so-called astronauts (this was long B4 any manned space flight, so people obviously didn't know you needed pressurized space suits to survive the unbelievable, instant killer of the cold in space! But they did wear these goofy space-helmets, as if that would help! And, remember other space-flight films, same thing: no space suits + they'd send up these egghead scientists, researchers, etc.-they may have been smart & all-but they had NO, none, zero training in flying anything; they never even flew a jet airplane, e.g.! But, another reuse in Teenage Caveman that I saw mentioned by someone else was that radiation suit the human survivor from "civilization" had been wearing so long it must've deteriorated into a monstrous-looking suit-but, regardless: even B4 it was revealed what/who that thing was, I too recognized that thing as being the "alien" creature from Bloodbeast-I don't know if Corman directed that one too or if he was producer/exec. prod. on it. Amazing the little things one notices just from watching the variety of bad 50s cold war allegories on MST3K- but I must admit: Teenage Caveman, as a cautionary tale about nuclear holocaust & the theme of bombing civilization back 2 the "stone age" was taken to extremes!

It's been twenty minutes and I hate almost every character I've seen so far. I hate the tryhard old shill and the half-assed Toxic Avenger. I hate the kid even when he grows up, and I hate his douchecanoe friends and their shrill, interchangeable girlfriends. I hate the RV family. I hate the bait shop proprietor and the alliterative fishing champ and Bev D. and the squatter and the neighbor and basically everyone except the grandfather from the intro-- and he only gets a pass because he's dead. Hate. Hate.


Kevin Murphy & the music for Bloodhook

While Kevin Murphy wasn't the guy who did the actual scoring (or at least wasn't credited as doing so), I saw, during the ending credits, that, besides being "Key Grip", he was also credited w/co-writing most of the tunes that were played in the movie - there were about 5 people who were listed as performing the songs (but not a band name) and I think some of them or all (I'd have to look again) of them wrote the tunes. So, I guess, in a way, Kevin did contribute to the music - even if it was just co-writing the rock tunes, etc, that the kids played on their boombox or the records, etc.
