|Inspired by The Most Dangerous Game.|
"He had never slept in a better bed, Rainsford decided."
It's a classic. It's one of the few books I read back in school that I have the Kindle version. Yes, The Most Dangerous Game made an impression on me.
Bloodlust!? Not so much.
Well, to be truthful, it did make an impression on me. It just didn't make a good impression on me.
|Mike Brady before he met Carol Martin (nee Tyler). Maybe Betty was the first Mrs. Brady?|
Okay, maybe Bloodlust! isn't as bad as all that. It's certainly not the worst film that the MST3K crew has taken on. But, it's nowhere near the best film, either.
The riffing on the film is good. Not stand up and cheer great, but good. The thing about this episode, though, is the short film, and the premiere appearance of Pearl Forrester.
We'll get to Pearl in a minute. First, the short.
|Just country boys and girls gettin' down on the farm.||It's udder-ly fantastic working on a dairy farm.|
But ... Pearl.
|Pearl appears. But she's not called Pearl.||Not yet, anyway. Maybe later. Yeah. Later.|
The Host Segments are funny, as is the short. The film is ... okay. The riffing of the film, I mean.
A pretty good episode overall.
