Mystery Science Theater 3000: CITY LIMITS Rewatch Season 4, Ep 3
Rewatch! Another of those post-apocalyptic movies, back before we knew the end of civilization would be a big social media fiasco.

According to the IMDB, how actors were mentioned in the credits depended on their fate in the movie. So, John Stockwell IS Lee because his character survived, but Dean Devlin WAS Ernie because he kicked the bucket. YouTube (1h31m) Premiered June 20, 1992. [more inside]
