0907: Hobgoblins

MST3k, Experiment #0907

Be careful what you wish for... You just might get it! Hobgoblins.

A group of hobgoblins, who allow you to live out your fantasies but kill you in the process, escape from a studio vault, and a security guard and his friends must stop them before dawn.


Oh the classics... This movie is one of the worst that ever appeared anywhere, much-less this TV show. But it's quite watchable thanks to all the riffing, which is incredible by the way. The host segments are all fun too...

The best parts of this episode, though, come during the opening titles of the movie, when Crow and Servo try to make a break for it several times, causing Mike to chase after each of them. Also, when Mike finally builds cut-outs of them all as they dash away, leaving a recording of themselves poorly riffing the film. The cut-outs make their way into the host segment for a wonderful song based on the movie.

One of the worst movies ever, some fun host segments, exciting in-theater bits, and a fun little song.  All of this adds up to make quite a wonderful episode. Definitely a classic.


Favourite line: "I wonder if he knows his face looks like that..."
