As soon as Varied Celluloid finishes their coverage of one Mystery Science Theater 3000
boxset, Shout! Factory are once again announcing more episodes coming down the pipeline! Like most of you, we are huge fans, so you’ll hear no complaints! This news seems extra special for Shout, because this latest boxset will feature four episodes never released on DVD. Included on this set will be: Fugitive Alien
, a Joel episode from the third season. A Japanese film featuring Joe Shishido, this one should be fun. Along for the ride on this set is the sequel, Star Force: Fugitive Alien II
. From the same season, we get more Japanese science fiction madness. The third feature is The Sword And The Dragon
, which is a poorly dubbed Russian film that was re-edited by Roger Corman for its American release. This episode is hosted by Mike and comes from the sixth season. Finally, our last film is another Mike episode from the sixth season, and it is Samson Vs. The Vampire Women
, which should prove to be incredible fun. Starring the legendary Mexican wrestler Santo, this title should make the set worth grabbing by itself. MST3K
+ Santo = Instagrab.
The set also includes numerous special features, as well as new mini-posters from artist Steve Vance. These are the special features listed on the set:
. New Interviews With Japanese Film Historian August Ragone
(these have been amazing in the past, August is a genius)
. You Asked For It: Sandy Frank Speaks!
. MST Hour Wraps
. Life After MST3K: Frank Conniff
. MST3K Shorts: Snow Thrills & A Date With Your Family
. Lucha Gringo: K. Gordon Murray Meets Santo
