  1. The Manster

    An American reporter in Japan is sent to interview an eccentric Japanese scientist working on bizarre experiments in his mountain laboratory. When the doctor realizes that the hapless correspondent is the perfect subject for his next experiment, he drugs the unfortunate man and injects him with a serum that gradually transforms him into a hideous, two-headed monster.

  2. The Gong Show Movie

    From Wikipedia:
    The film shows a fictional week in the life of Chuck Barris as the host and creator of The Gong Show, through a series of outrageous competitors, stressful situations, a nervous breakdown (which compels him to run away and hide in the desert) and other comic hijinks in his life and work on the TV show. Among the highlights included a group of men dressed as a Roman Catholic priest and three nuns lip-synching Tom Lehrer's song "The Vatican Rag", a man blowing out a candle with ****, and the uncensored version of Jaye P. Morgan's infamous -baring…

  3. Captain Marvel 2019

    This film has bad acting, male bashing, and a disappointing answer to the question of why nick fury wears a eyepatch, 90s references, i think bridget and mary jo should riff the film, maybe as a reference to how the star of the film doesn't want 40 year old white guys reviewing it and bridget and mary jo are definitely not 40 year old white guys

  4. The Christmas Carol (1949, narrated by Vincent Price)

    You know you're in trouble when they don't even get the title right. (It's A Christmas Carol, not THE Christmas Carol. ...Actually, according to Dickens it's A Christmas Carol In Prose, Being A Ghost Story Of Christmas, but who calls it that?)

    And you're in even MORE trouble when they misspell the main character's NAME in the opening credits. (Who is this "Ebeneezer"?)

    This was an early television production--and I mean EARLY, as it wasn't even the fifties yet. It's a half-hour short that was meant for syndication on 22 stations across the country on Christmas Day of 1949. Vincent…

  5. Xanadu

    This ... this movie. Gene Kelly and Olivia Newton John somehow maintain their dignity during this glorious dumpster fire. The plotline is roughly "What if we signed ELO and shoveled a ton of money into a movie that was put in front of the cameras with no script? Let's have four or five different styles of dancers that have no idea what the others are doing, and film them all together with no thought to blocking. And tie it all together with a ham-faced cipher that we're going to make the romantic lead!"

    See the film that asks the question,…

  7. Horror Express-1972

    This deserves a live Riff (I know there is a riff here already). This screams for a Halloween Showing. Peter Cushing, Christopher Lee, and Telly Savalas as a Cossack?!? Comic Gold!

  8. jumpin jack flash

    God knows Whoopi Goldberg did worse movies than this one but it is the only one worth making fun of the others are just to awful that not even your guys best riffing can pull anyone through watching it.Jumpin Jack Flash made in the 80s about a woman who ends up having a conversation online with some guy named jack that eventually puts whoopi in danger by some british terrorist. whoopi tries to escape and figure out what they want with jack and why they want to kill him, now its not at its time a bad film but now…

  10. How It's Made

    Saw this in FB comments, not my idea but a really good one. The TV series How It's Made ran for years, full of short vinettes of how everyday items are constructed. The narration and pacing make it super riffable.

  12. Hansel and Gretel (1954)

    This puppet-animated movie isn't based so much on the Grimm fairy tale as on the opera version by Englebert Humperdinck. (No, not THAT Englebert Humperdinck.) It features the music from the opera, alternating between spoken dialogue and arias in English, adapted from the German libretto. (At least one legitimate opera star, Anna Russell, provided a voice--she plays the witch.)

    The story's altered a little bit, as it was in the original opera. Hansel and Gretel aren't abandoned in the woods through the machinations of a stepmother out to kill them--their otherwise loving mother loses her temper at a kitchen accident…

  13. Venom

    [The 2018 Sony Spiderverse film not the slasher film from 2005] A Spiderman Movie completely devoid Spiderman references based on an character that single handedly took down the first Spidey franchise I.e. Spiderman 3.

    This is another readymade project for the boys:

    Tom Hardy talking to himself in a CGI suit.

    Inexplicable motorcycle chases

    Tom cast as a hard hitting journalist defies all reality more so even than the extraterrestrial yoga pants gone bad.

    There’s a sequel in the way with Woody Harrelson too. So more material on the way

  14. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark (1973)

    Very creepy made-for-tv horror flick about a woman being terrorized by evil little gnome-like creatures which dwell in a house she and her husband just inherited, starring Kim Darby and Jim Hutton. Again it's a classic as far as I'm concerned and has a great cast, but there's PLENTY for the Rifftrax boys to poke fun at!

    The three reasons for Rifftrax to tackle it:
    1 - The creatures, there's LOTS of opportunities to poke fun at their appearance and make up dialog for them.
    2 - The elderly handyman who knows far more than he admits to, riff-worthy for…

  15. Tea Making Tips (BBC, 1941)

    You can give it a watch on the official BFI YouTube channel here:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vnvYymrCn4g&t=16s

    I just feel you guys tend to do fantastic jobs riffing on instructional videos in general, and one as genteel and specific as this could result in some absolute laugh out loud moments!

  16. Arnold's Wrecking Co. (1973)

    Arnold is an uptight business major who spends his summer vacation building a multi-million-dollar pot-dealing enterprise, complete with group insurance and a little league team. Unfortunately for Arnold, the idea of "big pot" didn't go over very well back in 1973.

    Writing, directing and co-starring trifecta for Steve De Souza, his first professional attempt at all three roles (IMDb). Hard to believe this is the same guy with writing/screenplay credits for several big hits: 48 Hrs (1982), Die Hard (1988), Die Hard 2 (1990) and Beverly Hills Cop III (1994). Less hard to believe: Commando (1985), The Running Man (1987),…

  17. Cathy’s Curse

    This is a terrible 1970s horror where a little girl is possessed by a doll which is channeling the spirit of her dead, and very angry, aunt. It’s a terrible ripoff of the exorcist with other random horror movies thrown in. You can see it on Shudder if you subscribe. Some of my favorite lines spoken by an 9 year old girl include: “Old . Fat . Fat dried up ,” “go on you filthy female cow, make us laugh,” and “all women are **.” The movie is absolutely insane and just dying to be riffed.

  18. The Moon-Spinners

    The Moon-Spinners is a 1964 American mystery film starring Hayley Mills, Eli Wallach and Peter McEnery in a story about a jewel thief hiding on the island of Crete. Produced by Walt Disney Productions, the film was based upon a 1962 suspense novel by Mary Stewart and was directed by James Neilson. The Moon-Spinners was Mills' fifth of six films for Disney, and featured the legendary silent film actress Pola Negri in her final screen performance.

    Why it should be riffed:
    1. The scenery in Crete is quite lovely.
    2. A teenage Hayley Mills.
    3. Pola Negri’s last performance.
    4.…

  19. Netherworld

    Brought to you by the director of Tourist Trap and the first PuppetMaster film is a film that took the lessons the director learned from those outings... and doubled down on the bad things while tossing the good stuff out of the window.

    The film opens with a madam taking a tween looking boy to a Marilyn Monroe-esque ****** then takes a turn for the demonic as a jerk is assaulted by a disembodied hand for trying to one of the women in the brothel's black magic equivalent of Area 51. Or he's turned into something. Then jumpcut to a…
