0613: The Sinister Urge

MST3k, Experiment #0613

SHORT:
Keeping Neat and Clean. A typical 1950's social education short for children on how to remain clean and neat, how to dress, and how to use strange shoeboxes.

Branded for Torture... A SMUT PICTURE! The Sinister Urge.

Someone is killing young women in the park. Police suspect it's related to the smut picture racket, and begin leaning on Gloria Henderson, a smut front woman for the "mob." Her right arm man continues to procure young women with stars in their eyes to submit to their heinous celluloid activities, and if the women try blackmail, they call in a specialist to take care of the problem.


This episode is filled with plenty of lovely and darling pinking shears. Just darling... and lovely...

...and aside from that, we have an evil plot to blow up Deep 13! TV's Frank has had enough, and he's set out to destory Dr. Forrester, and vicariously the S.O.L. in the process. The scenes of Frank being Evil are great, especially when he cheerfully let's his hostage walk away free to run an errand. My favourite bit is still the segment with Huggy Bear and Rooster. "He showed me his license..." "He was SEVEN!" "I'M A GOOD COP!"

As for the movie, it's a typical blechy Ed Wood film, with an oddly blatant appearance by the director himself mid-movie. The riffing is absolutely wonderful, and makes for a fun time.

Oh and the short!!! I can't forget the short. It's no secret that I love me some hygiene shorts... and I am fairly bold in saying this is my favourite of them. Just how incredibly long it takes these kids to clean... It's longer than I spend at work each day.

So be sure to clean everything you own, especially yourself, in an orderly and systematic fashion ALL day long from the moment you wake, until the moment you go to bed. And stay away from porn, or it will kill you.

Favourite line: "We've got a duck giving a statement in the other room..."
