Mock the Movie owes its very existence to Asylum Films through their Faith Films division, so at least they’re good for something. Making movies that work as movies is certainly not it, Sharknado not withstanding. So we’re left with watching these painful, ridiculous knock-offs together and mocking the hell out of them. This Wednesday, it’s time for Airplane vs Volcano.
Yes, we’ll be watching a bunch of hapless and probably annoying airplane passengers die as they’re trapped in the air in a ring of erupting volcanoes. Really. No, I’m not sure why either.
This one is available on Netflix.
“This sounds awful!” I hear you cry. Yes. Yes, it does. “This must be mocked mercilessly”, you say. Well, then you’re in the right company. The instructions for playing along:
- Start following @MockTM on Twitter.
- Start watching the movie on the appropriate Wednesday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
- Once you’ve got the movie going, tweet your snarky comments to @MockTM. Directing our tweets to @MockTM will keep our followers from being overwhelmed with our snark!
- Set up a search for @MockTM on Twitter for the duration so you can follow along with everyone else sharing your pain.
If you have suggestions for other movies that can and should be mocked, send them to @MockTM. Preference will be given to movies that are free or stream on the major media delivery services. Watch the feed, and we’ll set up the calendar for more terrible, mockable movies.
If you’ve missed a mocking, you can catch transcripts and even subtitle files for later watching on the Mock the Movie archive.
