Artist/illustrator Will Quinn did this piece based on Phase IV (1974) which was riffed by joel and the bots in the KTMA season!
I love this movie, it is classic B, and the riff is pretty good. Actually, I really like the KTMA riffs, and this is one of my favorites!
I’ve never seen the riffed version of the film (not a big KTMA season fan), but as a big Saul Bass fan, I have seen it unriffed and quite enjoyed it. The ending is nuts, but the rest of the film is good and the effects are really impressive.
Phase IV would be an ideal choice if they would decide to revisit another KTMA’d movie in a future episode.
It’s a Paramount film, so I have my doubts they could negotiate the rights.
Dang, I was just trying to think of the name of this movie the other day while I was watching Them!
Haven’t seen it riffed but I saw this film when I was about 7 or 8. Then I had nightmares about falling down a hole and getting eaten by ants.
