  2. Birdemic 2!: the resurrection (2013

    Well because it's the 2nd one! Just as bad as the first, it brings back Rod, still bad graphics just a little smoother looking. It's just perfect for riffing

  3. 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.

  4. The Meg

    A shark movie that's like someone took Jaws, Jurassic Park, Godzilla (1998), and Die Hard, threw them into a blender and let the results sit in the sun for a week.

  5. A Christmas Carol (Shower of Stars, 1954)/The Stingiest Man In Town (Alcoa Hour, 1956)/The Stingiest Man In Town (Rankin-Bass, 1978)

    You've riffed that 1959 Coronet Films Christmas Carol Short that starred Basil Rathbone and was introduced/narrated by Fredric March. This is quite interesting, because both March and Rathbone were involved in other versions of A Christmas Carol, the second of which was remade for animation. All three of them have their merits, but have just enough retro-cheesiness to make for good riffs.

    In 1954, the anthology program Shower of Stars (sponsored by Chrysler) presented an hour-long musical version of A Christmas Carol starring Fredric March as Scrooge and Basil Rathbone as Marley. Being who they were, the lead actors turned…

  6. Terror in the Midnight Sun (1959)

    Mom loves this film and she'd love to see it riffed!
    From IMDB -
    "Aliens release a furry critter in the wilds of Lapland where it takes a woman captive and threatens a group of scientists."

  7. The Land of Faraway

    A 1987 Swedish fantasy film for children, fraught with uncomfortable Freudian plot elements, child endangerment, laughable special effects, and a little-known child actor called Christian Bale as Jum Jum. Also features the legendary Christopher Lee, Timothy Bottoms, and a scene where a giant flying head rescues a child from his hellish existence by flying him into space, nestled in the tangles of his newspaper beard while a mewling Europop song tries its best to be "The Neverending Story."

  10. 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!

  11. 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!

  12. Rifftrax Live Spooky Scary Halloween Extravaganza

    The time is waaay overdue for a spooky scary funny "Rifftrax Live Halloween Extravaganza." This would be a mixed bag of Halloween themed shorts, cartoons, weird short films, vintage spook show trailers, and maybe some really terrible monster/science fiction trailers, all done in the format of an olden days type 'spook show.' These spook shows used to include the audience as part of the fun. Monsters running down the aisles, cheesy fake ghosts floating over the audience, etc. With time permitting you could even include a short really horrible old creaky horror movie that is down on it's little knees…

  13. 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

  15. Blazing Ninja

    Quite possibly the greatest bad Kung Fu movie of all time: hilarious without riffing, but could be one of the all-time greats with the LEGENDARY THREE attached!

    Aside from the usual comically bad dubbing this film also contains the following compelling features:


    1. Flashback sequence which is clearly from a completely different film and has nothing to do with the rest of the movie.


    2. Period setting during the Japanese occupation, complete with period cars (sometimes) yet everyone is dressed in 70s fashions (wide collars, poly-blend blazers, etc.) and hairstyles.


    3. The transfer is widescreen-4:3, but centre frame locked rather than pan-and-scan so…

  16. 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

  17. Rifftrax Live Christmas 2019 - Fun in Balloon Land & Whizzo

    Live audience interaction is needed for the last part of Fun in Balloon land, so why not double down on the madness and also do Whizzo?

  18. The Phantom Empire

    "When a man-eating cave creature appears with a fortune in uncut diamonds around his neck, Dr. Chambers' daughter Denae hires a salvage company to find the underground source of the gems. Accompanied by archaeological intern Andrew Paris, mineralogist Professor Strock, and the salvage company's Cort Eastman and Eddy Colchilde, Denea's hopes of emerging from her famous father's shadow become as remote as getting out of the caves alive!"
    -From Wikipedia

    Starring Ross Hagen from Wonder Women and the impeccable Sybil Danning, this pulp throwback would be perfect for the guys to Riff.

  19. Lady of Burlesque

    This surprisingly spicy movie from 1943 is actually quite good (Barbara Stanwyck especially) but the old-timeyness of it, and the dance routines, make great riffing material.
