  1. Miracle on 34th Street (1973)

    Very specifically, the 1973 made-for-tv version of Miracle on 34th Street, with Sebastian Cabbot (Santa), David Hartman (Generic White Male), Jim Backus (Hapless Flustered Stuttering Management) and Roddy McDowall (as the "store psychiatrist").

    This is admittedly tough, as it is not currently available anywhere I can find, so you would have to secure rights to use the film itself, as a "riffs only" release would not work. Also, it is in 4:3, and I know you guys tend to like the 16:9 stuff for RiffTrax, and you aren't likely to get a new transfer from film, so it's going to…

  2. Ultraman II: The Further Adventures of Ultraman

    Ultraman II is the english dubbed version of Ultraman Joenius, AKA, The Ultraman. A movie was made of the first few episodes. As in most classic Ultraman shows, there is this special Earth Defense Squad, and Harris, the hot shot pilot bonds with the superhero Ultraman and they fight monsters. It's cheesy, it's fun, it's directed (and voiced) by Tom Wyner, who directed Attack of the Super Monsters, and voiced the narrator. It's like Attack of the Super Monsters, sans the cheesy dinosaur kaiju. It would be fantastic to riff, and this year, with COVID-19 running rampant, people are now…

  3. "RiffTrax, please riff 'The Car'"

    It's the 1977 movie. Called The Car. Bout a big black demonic car that kills folks.
    There was recently a direct to video sequel made, so it's slightly more relevant now.

  4. The Mads are Back recordings

    Guys... omg. Please, please, please see what you can do about getting the rights to sell copies of the Mads are Back riffs that Frank and Trace have been doing. I would love, love, love to give them (and you) money for copies of the shows that I've missed.

  5. Spooky House (2002)

    Essentially this film is “Cool as Ice” if it mixed its cold medications, fell asleep watching Harry Potter, and dreamt it was a kid’s movie. I just finished watching it and am experiencing that special reality-questioning bewilderment you only get from the finest Rifftrax films. Why does it need to be riffed?
    1. Ben Kingsley, (AKA the Great Zamboni), and his removable mustache live with a jaguar in a papier-mâché castle in front of a matte painting. It might actually be a church, (there’s a graveyard), or possibly every Scooby Doo episode made three-dimensional.

  6. Replicas

    A modern take on the Frankenstein archetype story. Reason #1 to riff this movie: it stars Keanu Reeves, who I am convinced is a piece of 2x4 lumber dressed in human skin, doing his one-note method acting. Reason #2: certain gaps in logic appear in the film, such as how it takes exactly 17 days to clone a human as he or she appeared at the time the DNA sample was taken, but each progressive day accelerates the aging process. That's just one gap, but there are plenty others scattered throughout the movie. Reason #3: plenty of pauses between dialogue…

  7. Dream Bunny in Dreamland

    An absolute fever dream of a rejected TV pilot. Creepy dolls, bad acting, weird costumes, it's no wonder it failed

  11. Overlords of the U.F.O.

    Overlords of the U.F.O. is one of those films that defies description. It's the feature-length spiritual cousin to Flying Saucer Mystery, and it takes itself equally seriously.

    Here's some sample dialog:

    "Who are the alien intelligences behind this type of space travel device? Are the UFOs friend or foe?"

    "In 1973, another significant UFO picture shows not only the anti-gravity device operational, but, also, with it is a smaller a degravitated sphere under the control of the the alien intelligences of the UFO. Who are the overlords of the UFO?"

    Oh, and in the grand tradition of Santa and the…

  13. Indiana jones and The Temple of Doom (1984)

    Arguably one of the weaker Indiana Jones movies (along with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), this movie is long overdue for a RiffTrax "Just the Jokes" commentary! Heck, it's been 12 years since the guys riffed the fourth movie. Temple of Doom has a lot of reasons for being riff material, including...


    1. Kate Capshaw's annoying character, Willie Scott

    2. The dark atmosphere from the Thugee Cult (Heck, they possesed Indy and want to destroy every religon on the planet!)

    3. We need more Indy movie riffs from Mike, Kevin and Bill!

    It's been a very long time since the guys riffed an…

  14. Timestalkers

    William Devane, Lauren Hutton, John Ratzenberger, and Klaus Kinski doing the best he can with the improv idea of being the time traveling lovechild of Skynet and Hilter (I think only metaphorically, but who knows what deleted scenes there might be on the cutting room floor). I mean we seriously devote a huge chunk of the movie to talking about, getting to, and talking with a guy about his delusions of the importance of preserving old cowboy songs for their cryptic history lessons. Except in the exact, and extremely unique scenario presented in the movie, when is this going to…

  15. Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

    Plot? What plot? Who needs a plot when you have EXPENSIVE SPECIAL EFFECTS to carry a movie? Oh, and more monsters than you can shake a stick at.

  16. A long kiss goodnight

    I watched this movie on Christmas eve. My family unanimously agreed that it was the dumbest movie we've seen that year. It's over dramatic, full of plot holes, the only jokes this movie can tell are *** related, and it only has value in being so bad it's good. Surprisingly it has a 70% on rotten tomatoes.
    The movie is a violent, R rated spy film starring Greena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson.
    If this movie is hilarious enough on its own(even if it isn't intended), it would even more funny with some of your commentary!

  17. The Nutcracker (1993 George Balanchine's with Macaulay Culkin)

    This movie should be considered because I feel there is plenty of opportunity for Riffs (like gender roles and cutting a crown off a dead rat and putting it on a girl's head and we're just cool with that??), Macaulay being in it also adds to the opportunities for riffs, and there is not a lot of talking in the movie so funny commentary would be an awesome addition. Thanks for considering.

  19. Electra (1996)

    The Skinemax version of Captain America, basically. The Queen of Softcore, Shannon Tweed as a leather-clad super-villianess hot for
    the "super-serum" of oily bohunk of a stepson. Oh did I mention that "serum" can be transmitted sexually?

    Seriously, with a batshit premise like THAT, how could you lose?

  20. The Cyclops (1957) by Bert I. Gordon

    This is the only one of the classic 50’s Bert I pictures left unriffed, and I say, we can't let that stand. Here's the trailer:
    https://youtu.be/GKzrALaaOOE

    As any MSTie can plainly see, it uses the exact same stock footage as 'King Dinosaur' and the same terrible front-projection techniques as 'The Amazing Colossal Man' and 'War of the Colossal Beast,' only somehow even crappier. In fact, I’m pretty sure the only reason they didn’t use it during the original run of MST3K was because they were all sick and tired of making fun of the same stupid iguana with a fin…
