  1. The Finishing Line

    This is a seriously F***ed up British PSA about children playing on railroad tracks. This kid daydreams about holding his own Olympics on a train crossing. Dozens of children get killed. It's both horrifying and surreal.

      • Walt Disney The story of Menstruation

        Walt Disney and the story of Menstruation. This is 70 years old now. Might be a good one to riff. Thanks

        • The American Heart Association's current BLS (Basic Life Saving) video

          There are various skits with live actors about someone who becomes unresponsive and needs CPR, only when the actor or actress actually starts doing CPR, the person in need of help is switched out for a mannequin, which is suddenly wearing the person's clothes and and is in the same position the person was just in! This effect was especially creepy for the baby- CPR skit. Our entire class was laughing so hard it hurt!

              • Pathé newsreels

                There are literally decades of Pathé newsreels out there that are just *itching* for the Rifftrax treatment.

                • Samurai Cop 2

                  You all already made samurai cop one of the best riffs ever out of possibly one of the worst movies I have ever seen, but now those individuals have decided to indie fund a sequel. You need to riff this sequel made 25 years later. It retains the same characters and same plot. I couldn't believe it had a sequel until Amazon informed me. It has the same smirks from Mark Frazer and the same flowing locks of Mathew Karedas. The movie may already be a parody of itself, but it needs your riffs for greatness.

                  • Drawing for Beginners: the Triangle

                    Drawing for Beginners: the Rectangle was not the only film in its series. I don't know whether the Circle and Square installments are still extent, but somebody sold a copy of the Triangle last year, so it's out there, and I think it's safe to assume it is worthy of Rifftrax.

                    A few stills from the film are on the eBay auction, including some sort of tree dinosaur. http://www.ebay.com/itm/16-mm-Drawing-For-Beginners-The-Triangle-400-039-/361658877539?nma=true&si=FIM%252BS%252FBNp5mlh%252BgVgo4dHv%252Bgdh0%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

                    • Garlic is as Good as Ten Mothers

                      It's 51 minute foodie documentary from 1980 (and it looks it too).

                      It's a love story to garlic (which as depicted wasn't really a big trend in the US back in the 1970s and earlier if you believe the talking heads).

                      One talking head mentions that he believes that vampires are real. Werner Herzog also makes a cameo.

                      Lots of dialogueless food prep providing plenty of space for riffing.

                        The lead character's name is Woody. There are probably at least ten good jokes in that alone. One of those dating etiquette shorts that offers divergent time lines in how to choose, ask for, and end a date

                        • Too Tough to Care (1964)

                          From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Too_Tough_to_Care

                          Too Tough to Care is an 18-minute educational film produced in 1964 to undermine teenage resistance to anti-smoking education.

                          Farley, an advertising copy writer for the fictional Finster Cigarette Company, is dismayed by the medical establishment's successful campaign to link smoking with lung cancer. It dawns on Farley that one effective way to counter this campaign would be to promote the concept of being "too tough to care" about the hazards of smoking. So he launches an advertising campaign, complete with a compelling jingle, showing men such as dynamite workers and gas workers lighting up Finster cigarettes in…

                          • The Boy Who Liked Deer

                            A mid 70s cautionary tale of bad crowds and vandalism. In the late 1980s, this was aired to all the 3rd graders in our class, and may well be one of the best cases of nightmare fuel for a young child to see.
                            I don't know if this could be made funny, but I'd love to see what could be done with it

                            • The Nutshack

                              I'm not sure if this counts as a short, it's a TV show, but I couldn't find a TV show suggestion function. So anyway, this is one of the worst cartoons ever made, and I think you could get some material out of this.

                                  This overly groovy ad for Westinghouse refrigerators is public domain and, well, laughably weird. After all, who doesn't want to apply burlap or brick-texture Contact paper to their fridge while dancing around it on New Year's Eve?

                                    A great short about managing the office Coffee Break....styles may have changed but the problem hasn't.

                                        A horrifying giant mouth teaches horrifying giant ears about the importance of listening to directions. There's also weird superfluous footage of animals in a zoo, because why not?

                                        • How to Succeed with Brunettes

                                          An overly tacky do's and don'ts video, produced by the Navy, mixing dates and business (no, not like prostitution). The picture quality is really good, for some reason, unlike most old shorts. There's some great riffable moments, but in general it flows well enough to keep people watching in case you guys crap out on some quality riffing..haha..j/k Take a gander.
