Mystery Science Theater 3000: SANTO IN THE TREASURE OF DRACULA   Rewatch 
May 11, 2023 3:18 PM - Season 13, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Rewatch! When Dracula threatens to revive and threaten the world of the living, who can stand against him? That's right, El Santo, the famed luchador, and his time machine. Roughly half of the movie is an extended flashback that could almost work as a Hammer-style horror movie, but then we return to the present and a wrestling match plays a pivotal role in the plot, of course. Episode 1301 is the first episode of the Gizmoplex era. It's only been a year since the original Fanfare post on this episode. Previously. We have gotten word that there will be a Season 14, but we have no details at this point.

MST Club is our weekly watch-along of Mystery Science Theater 3000, starting Thursdays at 7 PM US Eastern time, with the episode for that week starting at 9. This time I expect there's a number of you who haven't seen this one yet, so if you're interested, please drop by! (Multiple MST Club members contributed to the Kickstarter, which is how we justify this largess, to ourselves at least.) The show happens at

If you’ve caught The Mads’ latest “Teenage Zombies”, they’ve got the best riff of the MST3K fallow season:

Movie: “Ivan!”
Frank Conniff: “Where are my Kickstarter rewards?!”

Wow, that is an inside baseball riff if there ever was one and I am here for it, largely because I’m waiting for Kickstarter rewards.

They’ve definitely painted themselves into a corner there. They can’t go back to the well with another Kickstarter while the previous one still has rewards outstanding. With a funding model heavily, if not totally, dependent on crowdfunding, you’re going to be at a deadlock.

The forums there very much steer away from uncomfortable topics, but I was always keen to know how much of his own money or that of the Foos’ were invested in the new venture. I can’t recall ever seeing that mentioned.
