    Question – in remembrance of the old Monster Madness I wanted to buy a Monster Madness T-shirt – but then I saw that Amazon won’t ship them to Europe (Germany).
    So I’m wondering if there is another way for me to order these shirts…?

      Have you tried looking on ebay? Some sellers ship internationally. Also there are forwarding companies in the u.s that give you a act as a deliverable u.s address then forward any items to your international address for a fee. I know a lot of overseas buyers use them because some items are cheaper in the u.s than in their own country.

        Yes… but I also want to support Cinemassacre. If I buy a shirt on ebay, it might be a bootleg product.

        If you half a brain you can spot a bootleg product, whatever, your money to waste.

    It’s the 80s, do a lot of coke and vote for Ronald Reagan. That movie is crappy, but ghoulies is unwatchable. But the vhs cover scared me like hell as a kid!

      Definitely one of the best MST3K episodes ever.

    James, this is disheartening. If you are running out of material, its perfectly acceptable to go back to the classic, already reviewed horrors, and tell something NEW.

    For instance, The Thing, talk about who had the keys to the blood. Talk about folklore with other movies. Talk about deaths that occurred after the Poltergeists.

    Just no more of this half assed shit.

    Or. Hand over the project to Mike.

    Always one of my favorite MST3K episodes. I don’t own the Hobgoblins DVD, though, so I’m glad to hear Rick Sloane has a good sense of humor about the film and its reputation.
