Moral: no radiation in the fridge, please

Ho hum. Yet another 1950s movie about the horrors of nuclear radiation, complete with rubber monsters and postcard (literally!) backdrops. It takes something special to make this movie palatable, and Mike and The Bots (M&TB) are it. What dedicated MSTie can't quote from memory Peter Graves' preachy final oration? (Well, I can't, for one. But I know it's there!)

One of the best things about the MST series was its unrelentingly positive worldview. Even in the midst of cheap and obvious movies like this one, M&TB riff their little hearts out and come out winners. The host segment where Mike calls the Mads and uncovers their hidden secrets is one for the highlights reel. Alumni and friends of the University of Minnesota should particularly appreciate Crow's touching screenplay, 'Just Plain Peter: The U of M Years.'
