Recap / Mystery Science Theater 3000 S 01 E 13 The Black Scorpion

Film watched: The Black Scorpion

The MST3K presentation contains examples of:

  • Body Horror: The Mads after trying to make a cold fusion Walkman. Erhardt's head is swollen and deformed, and Forrester is reduced to a skeleton. (Also since they don't get better by the end, the only time Trace Beaulieu appears on screen is in the title sequence!)
  • Running Gag: Joel and the Bots clap whenever Dr. Hank Scott's name is spoken.
    • Or is it for Dr. Arturo Ramos and the sudden fancy Spanish accent accompanying it?
  • Visual Gag: Joel and the 'Bots holding up giant hot dogs during the film's opening sequence.
    • They also wear sombreros left over from a host sequence for a while and at one point Joel joins in throwing a rock down the hole to gauge the depth of the cave.
