0808: The She-Creature

MST3k, Experiment #0808

Hypnotized! Reincarnated as a monster from hell! The She-Creature.

Using hypnosis, Dr. Carlo Lombardi claims that he can have his patients regress and recover memories from their past lives, thereby proving that reincarnation exists. He also claims that the spirit of these past lives can be brought forth to take physical form.. A series of violent murders by a creature that seems to disappear into the sea suggests that Lombardi's claim may be correct. The medical and scientific community believe him to be a complete fraud but one enterprising businessman sees the opportunity to make a small fortune with Lombardi's ability.

This episode brings the whole "Observers" story arc to a close, solidifying "Brain Guy" into the show... Pretty decent episode. I laughed an awful lot at the riffs, even considering this to be a good "phase 2" episode. (for people to watch after they're already introduced to the show.)

I'm not sure why anyone agreed to be in this movie, but I think that goes for most of them. I would say that money was a factor, but these things seem to not have much of that going into them.

Anywho... I enjoyed this episode, and I specifically enjoyed the Lance Fuller segment.

Favourite line: "I can't help but feel that was directed at me..."
