Mystery Science Theater 3000: HOBGOBLINS   Rewatch 
July 11, 2019 4:54 AM - Season 9, Episode 7 - Subscribe

Rewatch! Plush toys with the ability to make people's fantasies a reality encounter some teenagers with severe issues, and the result is supposed to be a comedy. You knew it was coming. Any list of the best MST episodes invariably covers most of the worst movies, meaning we're back here again, at the extremely 80s, extraordinarily tawdry film (in the sense of being an oily coating) known to those unfortunate enough to have experienced it as HOBGOBLINS. To watch it is to feel like your brain is floating in a tub of slime: enjoy! Previously

7 PM Eastern tonight (that's 4 PM Pacific and 11 PM GMT, I think?) begins MST Club, our weekly group episode viewing along with other weird things. The episode itself begins at 9 PM Eastern, and the show happens at https://cytu.be/r/Metafilter_MST3KClub. It's a great episode, and a particularly bad movie this time out, so I hope you can make it!

I managed to watch Hobgoblins 2 a bit ago. It did not really add much to the original.

There is a purple car regularly parked on my street and every time I walk past it I hear Crow's voice in my head saying "paint my muscle car PRUNE color, please!"

I didn't realize that this would be part of MST Club and just recently watched this for the first time as it is now on Netflix. I've been on a bit of a MST3K kick lately having been exposed to it through videotapes my sister and her boyfriend had some time in the early 90s. This was a surprisingly fun episode as the movie itself truly is awful. The lame music video shoehorned in at the climax really makes you wonder what Director/Writer/Producer Rick Sloane thought he was doing. But, the gang does a good job of riffing on it and coming up with some good zingers. A funny coincidence is that my nine year old wants to watch horror movies, so we rented Gremlins a week ago and I had that to comparison this movie to.
