The Film Crew: Killers from Space

( 2 )

Overview

W. Lee Wilder's Killers From Space has yet to get a truly good DVD release, despite the fact that Turner Entertainment showed a very fine print of the public domain title back in the 1990's. The version put out by Shout Facotry, which features wraparounds and a running comedic commentary -- MST: 3K-style -- by a trio that includes MST: 3K alumnus Mike Nelson. They're known collectively as The Film Crew, and they're actually better than the later Mystery Science Theater: 3000 crew in terms of the humor and the wit...

Overview

W. Lee Wilder's Killers From Space has yet to get a truly good DVD release, despite the fact that Turner Entertainment showed a very fine print of the public domain title back in the 1990's. The version put out by Shout Facotry, which features wraparounds and a running comedic commentary -- MST: 3K-style -- by a trio that includes MST: 3K alumnus Mike Nelson. They're known collectively as The Film Crew, and they're actually better than the later Mystery Science Theater: 3000 crew in terms of the humor and the wit and cleverness involved. They're a little more uncensored as well, but that's understandable, given that this is a decade on from that noble venture. As to the movie, unlike a lot of MST: 3000 showings, which met basic broadcast quality standards, the makers here have found a print that suffers from jumps and other flaws, but it's all watchable, just not ideal (abd it only gives The Film Crew more to work with). There are only five chapters programmed, and the disc opens automatically to a very simple menu, following a Shout Factory promo section that can be skipped.

    Great for MST3K Addicts!

    For those of us who are die-hard MST3K addicts, we now have "The Film Crew," with Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett. Alas, no Crow or Tom Servo on screen. However, the riffs for this movie are just as good as anything from MST3K. In my opinion, the guys always did their best on old sci-fi "B" movies from the 1950's. This one gives them lots to work with. A very young Peter Graves is the only star, along with aliens, who have ping-pong eyeballs. Although the Rifftrax are equal to anything from MST3K, I miss the Bots doing their Commercial Break skits. The guys are on screen with one "Lunch Break," and the ever funny and goofy Kevin Murphy is the focal point. He tries to point out body parts that were not used in the movie for the aliens, instead of oversized eyeballs. I like seeing the guys interact! I hope the guys make more of these. They're much better than the "Rifftraxx" movies.

    "Why did you cry out for Martin Landau?"

    After a shakedown cruise with "Hollywood After Dark," The Film Crew offers "Killers From Space," a gloriously-bad B-movie from the 1950s that (as the guys point out) offers few killers and little space. The movie is more of the type that would have been riffed on Mystery Science Theater 3000, and the jokes I think are better than they were in "Hollywood After Dark." The Peter Graves bits alone are fantastic. The only weak spot (as in the first volume) is the "Lunch Break" segment. Maybe I'm too used to seeing Tom Servo and Crow, but these just aren't funny to me. Fortunately, it's not long before they're back riffing on the movie. I've enjoyed the first two DVDs in this series and hope Mike, Bill and Kevin keep it going.
