Black and White Experiments

Black and White experiments on MST3K. Monster a Go-Go (1965), Attack of the Giant Leeches (1959), Teenagers from Outer Space (1959), The Unearthly (1957), The Amazing Colossal Man (1957), Red Zone Cuba (1966), The Creeping Terror (1964). What reels you back for more? What is it about these experiments people can’t get enough of?

Much like Tom Servo I usually can’t tell the difference (I’m legally blind)

But I do love the oldies and wish there were more of them in upcoming seasons


I’m right there with you. The oldies are a special breed and lead to some of the best riffing in my opinion.

There’s a lot of delightful simplicity and MST3K-level cheesy effects with the B&W movies. I prefer my movies sans gore, and these movies tend to rely on story than effects (even if it’s not a good story). I love the this could happen! movies filmed with mutants, lost civilations, etc.


Flip side of that is when you don’t have much story to work with, you REALLY get trouble.

Or at the very least you get…Rock Climbing.


If I had a nickel for every movie that had long drawn out scenes of Hugh Beaumont climbing a mountain… I’d have two nickels, which isn’t a lot, but it’s weird that it’s happened twice.
