Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE TOUCH OF SATAN   Rewatch 
July 14, 2022 1:03 AM - Season 9, Episode 8 - Subscribe

Rewatch! A bit of a sleeper, it's the story of a young drifter who falls in love with a lady he meets by a lake who tells him, "this is where the fish lives." Being kind of dim, he immediately falls in love with her, and, surprise!, she's a Satan follower. Not in the sense of being a cultist, she just sort of "is" one. The fish does not appear to enter into it. She's over a hundred but looks young; her murderous sister is over a hundred and looks older. There's a couple of people they stay with who I think also have the mangoat on their contact lists, although in an even more vague way than the knower of fish residence. An odd movie. Previously.

This is one of the most 1970s movies they ever did. (See also: Laserblast)

I credit this movie for steering me away from a life toiling in desperation on a walnut ranch. I was too young to get in on the pecan farming bubble, though.

Those walnuts are just TEARING through the hay!

Okay, I have a question. Who were the two old people that witch lady and murder grandma live with? The ones who own the walnut farm? At first they seem to be witch lady's parents, but when it turns out she's over 120 that explanation dissipates like the morning dew. So then, who are they? Are they also people with "the devil in their soul?" How does that work, anyway?
