Mystery Science Theater 3000 Vol. 36
In this election year, we present two candidates for president of Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XXXVI. Representing the Comedy Central Party, Joel Hodgson, a champion of long-suffering cinephiles, leads the botty politic in two memorable episodes replete with inspired riffs and wacky host segments. Representing the SyFy Channel Party is Mike Nelson, a riff-ormer whose doctrine of laughter at any cost is clearly in play on the other two delirious episodes in this collection. We urge you to hear them both out as they take on some of the cheesiest movies of the day and lay out their visions for a funnier tomorrow. Includes the episodes Stranded In Space City Limits, The Incredible Melting Man and Riding With Death.

This animated feature-length film is features the voice talent of Misty Lee, with art by Walter Giovani and based on the comics by Gail Simone.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the cemetery, those brain-eating zombies are back and hungry for more tasty mortals! Writer/director Dan O’Bannon (Alien, Lifeforce) puts an uproarious spin on the zombie apocalypse movie in 1985’s cult classic The Return Of The Living Dead.

Session 9
It looms up out of the woods like a dormant beast. Grand, imposing... abandoned and deteriorating, the Danvers State Mental Hospital, closed down for 15 years, is about to receive 5 new visitors. Donning protective gear, the men of the Hazmat Elimination Co. venture into the eerily vast and vacant asylum that is filled with an evil and mysterious past. Rampant patient abuse, medieval medical procedures and rumors of demonic possession are some of the many dark secrets the hospital holds – but then so do each of the men.
