Back in the late 70s, a small, little-known film called "Alien" was released. I'm not sure how it fared at the box office. I never heard about it again. However, some sad movie executive in Hollywood MUST have heard about it, because they took a B-level zombie film called "The Dark" and immediately -- in mid-production -- changed it into a film about an alien. The resulting shift in direction is so subtle as to be almost imperceptible -- if you're Mr. Magoo.
Fast-forward to 1:24:09 to hear a bent bar make the same sound as Scooby-Doo biting down on a bone. Fast-forward to 1:24:32, and you WON'T believe that a boy can fly... and subsequently explode.
Please riff this film. It may be society's only chance to redeem this piece of cinematic offal.

Your link isn't working. I found it here:
And it looks absolutely horrendous. We saw the trailer and then rushed here, certain they'd have riffed it by now. I hope they do soon. It certainly deserves mockery.
I saw this horrible mess of a movie back in 1980 or 81. Stars Cathy Lee Crosby, William Devan, Keenan Wynn and Casey Kasem. Movie Bad.. So Rifftrax must
