  1. The Geek (1971)

    What happens when you take the worlds most boring unattractive porn (its also known as the big foot porn) and edit out the porn?, you get the 15 minute "bonus feature" on the Godmonster Of Indian Flats DVD from Something Weird Video,


    1. its a terrible big foot documentary


    2. its a terrible short film about about finding big foot


    3. stereotypical bad porn acting without the porn


    4. even though the actors are unattractive, the original had the promise of boobs that helps make it easier to sit through the films boring parts, there's no boobs in the 15 minute cut


    5.the script,…

  4. 1950's Highway Hearing

    A 30 minute "documemtary" (ala 1950s Soap Opera style) Highway Improvement hearing, with bad script and even worse acting! Very timely right now with Congress trying to pass a Highway improvement bill.

  6. Baoh (1989)

    released in japan in 1989 and dub in to english in 1995, Baoh is one of if not the only anime i can picture rifftrax making a video on, at only 48 minutes long, it's a quick sit,

    The 3 reasons

    1, the terrible script transition has the terrible actors pointing out the obvious every 30 seconds


    1. the plot is incoherent, full holes and never establishes baoh's powers


    2. quality of animation flips between from ok to just bad but don't worry, the violence done well and i guess that's good?

  7. Trucks

    Trucks, a movie from 1997, it’s maximum overdrive’s basement dwelling stepchild. Even the radio controlled tonka trucks murders the mailman to get out of this movie. No real big name actors, but when a fire breaks out, every actor in the movie looks at the smoke and ask, what the **** is that? There’s even an inflatable axe wielding killer. How can you go wrong with redneck hating trucks? The TV seems to only come on when the reporter reminds everyone that there is no electricity and then fades back out to static.
    1. Trucks that don’t really seem to…

  8. "High Cost of Letting Go" (Short) AKA Don't Drive Angry

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sVsRYsNETpY

    A Union Pacific traffic education short.

    A reporter solved the mystery of why a brother and sister died in a fatal accident. But before he'd tell the audience or his boss the reporter detailed every step he took to figure out what happened.

    A series of interviews revealed that the family had emotions. Emotions caused the dad to get a ticket, the girl to get her bike run over, and the brother to speed past a red light and into a deadly railroad yard.

  9. Instant French

    In keeping with the wackiness of shorts like Phoebe, this gives us a look at the strangeness of 1960s Canada culture. Bilingualism, mistresses, corporate intrigue, black & white film, plus an animated logo to take on Coronet and ACI. What could go wrong?

    20+ minutes of pure madness to start your day right in our topsy turvy world today.

  10. American Women - Partners in Research (Short)

    https://archive.org/details/American1960_2

    Short film that epitomizes sexist behaviors of the late 50's early 60's. With Chet Huntley (!) of NBC News. Made by a company here in Buffalo, NY. I can see Bridget & Mary Jo sinking their teeth into this one. In the public domain.

  11. Not without my handbag

    It’s a very creepy claymation short (little over 10 mins) about a lady who dies but comes back as a zombie to get her purse. It features the devil, the dead lady, and her very young niece who now lives alone. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIvQZm8K-yU

  14. 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

  15. It’s Potty time

    It’s an old Duke University video..its has to be seen to be believed. True nightmare fuel. Fantastically you can find it on amazon. It would make an epic riff.

This journey includes many terrifying rock creatures in terrible costumes, more caves, more musical numbers and many interesting(?) facts about rocks!

  17. Write On! The TV Ontario TV Shorts

    Coming from the bizarre realm of the 70s PBS/GRETA Dimension, I submit to RiffTrax: Write On! The TV Ontario Shorts.

    Just as aci attempted to educate on reading with From Left to Right, Write On was basically a series of shorts which was supposed to educate on grammar and punctuation.

    This shindig took place within a mythical newspaper building with a cranky editor, and two reporters. One of them known as Jack, was sort of a Walter Mitty type, since some of the shorts would take place in his wild imagination.

    Basically it usually had the group in inexplicable situations…

  18. Fabulous Adventures of the Baron Munchausen (1979)

    No, not the Terry Gilliam film—the 1979 French Cartoon. I grew up watching and loving the English version and as I became an adult, I realized how horrid this fim is. I’m just going to put the highlights here:

    The animation looks like the artist was suffering a grand mal seizure, but he said “Screw the hospital—I HAVE A DEADLINE!!”

    The music in this film was composed by Michel Legrand (!!!), which I assume was like Andy Kaufman starring in a film about robots.

    The animator of this film wanted to be the French Walt Disney. I’m not kidding. It…

  19. School's Out

    what do kids do during the summer holidays? this film attempts to explain this, the answer an awful lot

    2. a child riding a dog into battle


    3. a police man escorts a young boy around a gym


    4. a demonstration of old live saving methods
