Mystery Science Theater 3000: RING OF TERROR, with THE PHANTOM CREEPS, part 3
February 11, 2015 4:55 PM - Season 2, Episode 6 - Subscribe

(1962, B&W, Horror, College, Short) "Behold a Ring Forged in Hell from Flaming Molten Fear!" As a prank on a cocky young med student, his fraternity brothers cook up a scary task for him: steal the ring from off a corpse's hand. How annoyed must filmgoers have been, expecting a horror movie when the only scary thing turns up near the end and isn't even all that frightening? It's a really lame ending, and not just to the film, for this is the only episode in MST3K's 198-episode run in which the short follows the movie. YouTube (1h37m) First aired November 3rd, 1990.

As of this moment the showing is still on for tomorrow, but timing is going to be tight for me. There's a chance I'll be late, or may have to postpone until Friday. I'll post updates here.

Thanks for making it happen this week, JHarris. It's 3 degrees here, and I don't know what I would have done without my weekly fix. Pray to the fixies, I suppose. Or shovel snow.

Remember, onion ramchips, cherry ramchips, chocolate ramchips.
