MSTies rejoice! The year 2000 is not for naught! Rhino Video has beamed us another fine transmission from the Satellite of Love! The particular piece of filmic anguish we must share this time with Mike and the 'bots is "The Creeping Terror," in which our namesake villain appears to be a drunken syphilitic Gumby trailing a moldy picnic blanket. As Mike points out, he's neither the most nimble nor the most ferocious cannibal alien you've ever seen: "The creeping part is apt, but the terror part is just not happening." However, the supporting cast are more than happy to help him out and basically crawl inside his mouth. Who could really blame them, though; death seems an acceptable alternative to acting in this virtually dialogueless turkey. The boys do get some admirable shots in every now and then, though, once the overzealous narrator clams up, the townsfolk stop offering themselves up for dinner (Mike: "Did anyone in the '50s ever think of running?"), and start fighting back, most notably with an acoustic guitar (Servo: "Only Tom Paxton can save us now!"). Finally, what would any goodMST3Kepisode be without at least one snarky reference to Peter Graves and a needless twist-dancing sequence?--Bob Michaels

review by . November 28, 2001
I had nearly every MST3K episode on video at one time or another. But I was young and stupid and didn't realize MST wouldn't be on forever, and so a lot of the episodes got taped over -- usually by other episodes. I still have a lot of tapes, but some of the best episodes are lost forever ... unless, of course, Rhino releases them commercially.Unfortunately, whether for copyright reasons or its own perverse marketing sense, Rhino seems committed to releasing good-but-not-quite-the-best episodes …
