Mystery Science Theater 3000: THE SINISTER URGE

aka The Young and Immoral. "Compulsive Killer Strikes Terror" "Frank... Daring... Shocking Realism" The police are trying to shut down a smutty picture racket while a killer, driven to insanity by pornographic nudity, preys on local women. With short Keeping Clean and Neat: An omniscient disembodied voice tells kids how to wash and perform hygiene. The movie is the last of Ed Wood's movies that Mystery Science Theater would cover. Reactions from the fanbase are mixed: Sampo of Satellite News thinks it's so-so, but some of the commenters, and Mighty Jack, love it. Wood made a softcore version of the movie the next year, and planned a sequel that was never made. YouTube (1h30m) Premiered November 5, 1994.

This might be my favorite Ed Wood episode, there's just so many sitting and talking in offices scenes. I'm going to do my best to make it home, but I'm not sure if I'll make it.

I have a very UN-sinister urge to use this to keep me away from the coverage of the pre-inaugural disasterousness. In fact, could we just follow it with a mini-marathon to help us MeFi MiSTies get through the next day or two? I have taken down the specifically-Xmas content from my hosting space, but there remains over 50 video files in the semi-secret folder including Plan 9, Starcrash, Mesa of Lost Women and the totally non-canon Dr. Who, Batman, Hercules and He-Man. (I think I'm going to refer to the Trumpy Administration as 'Non-Canon America')

I've thought about this and it seems very good to me. I'm going to throw some things in, if anyone wants to drop by.

Finally, a scathing exposé on the scourge of corn smut.
