"RiffTrax, please riff '_________________'"

The Dark

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.
