My worst RiffTrax? Forbidden Zone. Because they didn’t even riff it.
“We’re not riffing on this movie. It’s perfectly bizarre just the way it is! RiffTrax and Legend Films are proud to premiere the ultimate cult movie, Forbidden Zone, NOW IN COLOR and designed in partnership with director Richard Elfman. Now you can sing along with the Devil and “Chicken Boy” in the colorful comfort of your subterranean world.”
Rollergater. I finished it, but it was so incredibly stupid that I was really glad that I didn’t have to pay for it because I will never ever watch it again. Sure, the riffing was good, but the movie itself was so absolutely horrible that I had almost no enjoyment.
Runner up: Arachnia. Honestly, I don’t know why, but this movie made me genuinely angry. I’ve almost never had that reaction to a movie before, but I really really hated it and so the riffing didn’t matter because I was too irritated to laugh.
I think it’s all right. But I’m nowhere near as gaga for it as almost every other fan seems to be.
Tried to get into The Christmas Circus yesterday and kept falling asleep. It’s the kind of thing which exemplifies why station breaks and skits play such a vital role in making riffing funny. The monotony was overpowering, and the riffers sounded like they were feeling it, too.
Rollergator is certainly near the top of this list. It’s so purposefully an attempt to make a bad movie that you don’t want to riff it, you don’t want to punch it, you just want to tell everyone to knock it off and go home.
