0624: Samson Vs. The Vampire Women

MST3k, Experiment #0624

Solo un hombre de acero...de agilidad de pantera, es capaz de luchar contra las MUJERES VAMPIRO...y ese hombre es...SANTO! Samson Vs. The Vampire Women.

The vampire women in Mexico have awakened from their sleep, commanded by their master, The Evil One, to find him a bride. They choose as their target the beautiful daughter of a local professor. To rescue his daughter, the professor calls El Santo (Samson in some US versions), a silver-masked wrestler for justice.


Ahh Frank... What can I say about Frank? Well, let me be frank about Frank...

I believe I stated way back at the start of season two(2) that Frank is my single-favourite cast member from the entire run of the series (Bill Corbett being a close second), and I stand by that. That reason is why this episode will always be a bittersweet one for me. While it's a very funny episode with an incredibly retarded movie, and the host segments are well written and acted... I am always still very sad to see the departure of TV's Frank.

That being said, we do get a lovely song by Dr. Forrester all about how he will kill Frank, no matter where he is. Touching.

The end of aseason six(6), the end of Frank, and the end of yet another era of Mystery Science Theater 3000. This next season is an odd little duck... short, funny, but so very different than the ones before and after it. I call it "the dark season" for some stupid reason. Okay, that's a lie. I've never called it that before now, but come to think of it, I might just start calling it that... or not. I haven't quite decided yet. Don't judge me.


Favourite line: "We had a really hispanic time, thank you."
