Location Location Location - or, how many times has Vasquez Rocks (etc) been on MST3K?

Last night while watching Werewolf of London on Svengoolie, there’s a shot where the fuzzed fiend is about to commit a naughtiness and he is standing in a side alley stairwell. I swear that I saw this exact same location only a week or few back in a different Universal film… only I can’t place the film. Ah well.

Got me to wondering, as we tend to talk about actors, directors, otherers who have multiple offences committed against er who have appeared numerous times on MST3K through no fault of their own (hm hm)… what about locations?

Obviously, backlots and studio ranches etc make this a bit easy, but anyone got any deep cuts to share? ROAD TRIP!!

I know Bronson Cave has been in a number of MST3K and other riffed films, famously as the lair of Ro-Man the Robot in Robot Monster. I’d like to get out to see that and other (in)famous film landmarks.

When I lived in L.A., I always took visitors to the Vasquez Rocks and Bronson Caverns. Legendary TV and movie locations anyone can go to!

That reminds me that I wanted to sit down and go through all my favorite MST3K movies and see just how many were filmed near here…

hmmm…

It is supposed to rain tomorrow… and I’m stuck at home while the electrician is here so stuck inside… as long as he doesn’t need to cut the power longer than the APC can keep the modem and router up…

Maybe…

Yeah it’s also in both I was a Teenage Caveman and Night of the Bloodbeast (same monster as well! must’ve been a two-for-one deal).

Going by Bronson Cave’s own IMDb page, there are a few more MST3K films to add to the list:

It Conquered the World
Earth vs The Spider
The Magic Sword
I Was a Teenage Werewolf

Also of note here, Killers from Space was riffed by RiffTrax (and in their earlier incarnation as The Film Crew). And Cinematic Titanic covered The Wasp Woman.

Oh how could I forget that one! They make a LOT of Batman references to it.
