The Nerds vs. The Satellite of Love: MST3K: Hobgoblins

Continuing the Nerd Herd tradition of celebrating really bad movies in the MST3K style. As usual, I'll post a separate meetup for those who want to congregate for dinner and/or drinks before the show.

From the theater website:

MST3K: Hobgoblins

Directed by Rick Sloane. 1988. R. 92 min. DVD.

Fri, Jun 21, 9:45 pm

Colonial MSTies, this June we invite you to witness a B-Movie so bad that its own director (Rick Sloan) submitted it to the writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000. In this episode of our favorite show, Mike and the Bots attempt to stomach this gourmet cheese plate deluxe. Hobgoblins embodies the wanton corny decadence of the 80’s so succinctly that our space bound companions end up mocking not just a movie, but an entire decade. Join the Colonial Crew for another trip up to the Satellite of Love! (Chuck Francisco)

    First timers/those who can't make it to PJ Ryans: We usually congregate on the left side of the theater (facing the screen) in or near row N (for "Nerd Herd"). Since there's an '80s theme, I'll be wearing a green Pitfall shirt.

      Thanks! Admittedly, it's not hard to win when only two people are in the contest. :)
