‘Mothra’ gets the Rifftrax treatment this Thursday

in Events, Movies

This Thursday, August 18th, the guys from Rifftrax (Michael J Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy) will perform their third live event this year that’ll be broadcast across theaters nationwide. This time, they’ll be taking on the 1961 Japanese kaiju monster classic, Mothra!

Mothra, from Toho, the same studio that brought us the original Godzilla series, features the Godzilla ally making her debut. They’ll be riffing an original 1961 print of the film. You’ll see everything: action, adventure, giant eggs, man-eating plants, and small fairies!

Be sure to get your tickets here at Rifftrax.com/live. If this is anything like their 2014 riff of the 1998 Godzilla fans will be in for a treat!

    I won’t pick on the “Adam invited all his fanboy friends to his new clubhouse ALL BY HIMSELF!” issue–
    I’ll just point out that RT doesn’t quite have an instinctive sense of what’s a bad movie and what isn’t, and tends to borrow everybody else’s jokes from the Golden Turkeys and AgonyBooth.com.

    And long after Michael Medved had retired from the Golden Turkeys to be one of Siskel & Ebert’s annoying replacements, the show would occasionally say “Hey, how about a few more Golden Turkeys, just like the old days?”
    Medved seemed to have lost his old fire, and only picked Mothra as “the next great Turkey”. Oh, that and “Wild Women of Wongo”, which…the Rifftrax guys -also- did at one point.
