Tonight! We’ll see all the drama and suspense leading up to the Japanese action film Attack from Space that we’d previously mocked so ruthlessly, when we tackle its cinematic ancestor, Warning from Space. You’ll thrill at giant meteors! You’ll gawk at an alien species completely and totally unlike anything on Earth (except for starfish)! You’ll be left breathless… with laughter!
This one’s free on Youtube and Archive.org if you want to download an mpg. Though, fair warning, the mockers have found that mockery is facilitated by alcohol, so you might end up incurring other costs from buying booze, or going to the hospital with alcohol poisoning when the pain gets to be too much.
“These all sound awful!” I hear you cry. Yes, yes, they do. “These 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. EDT.
- 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.
Be there or be someone who values their time and liver functionality!
