Netflix Watch Instantly Top 5 (+3): MST3K Edition!

Zombie Nightmare
"Enjoy plenty of laughs with wisecracking hosts Mike, Crow and Servo as they skewer another dreadful movie. In this horror flick, voodoo priestess Molly (Manuska Rigaud) revives murder victim Tony (Jon Mikl Thor) as a zombie, so he can exact revenge on the teens who killed him. Filled with poorly executed scenes of violence and gore, "Zombie Nightmare" co-stars Adam West, Tia Carrere and Frank Dietz."

Racket Girls
"With fabulous wit and sarcasm, Mike, Servo and Crow lambaste this cinematic stinker, which focuses on women's wrestling promoter Scalli (Timothy Farrell), a dirty lowlife involved in illegal gambling who tries to flee from the cops and brutal mobsters. Co-starring real-life wrestling beauties Clara Mortensen, Rita Martinez and Peaches Page, this pathetic movie does include several intriguing catfights."

Werewolf
"While digging in an Arizona quarry, archaeologist Tommy (Jules Desjarlais) gets scratched by a werewolf skeleton and soon begins exhibiting the telltale signs of lycanthropy. Later on, his colleague, Yuri (Jorge Rivero), seizes upon a revenge plan using Tommy's blood. The crew of the MST3K has a howling good time with this 1996 schlockfest. On-ship antics include a funny spoof of Inside the Actors' Studio."

Laserblast
"While sulking in the California desert, misfit teenager Billy Duncan (Kim Milford) stumbles on a powerful alien laser weapon, which he uses to wreak havoc on all who have wronged him. The venerable critic Leonard Maltin gave this space oddity a two-and-a-half star review, a fact that gets quite a drubbing by the crew at MST3K in this fan-favorite episode. Watch for Roddy McDowall in a brief cameo as Dr. Mellon."

Future War
"Evil cyborgs and their dinosaur sidekicks leave the future to chase a runaway human slave (Daniel Bernhardt) to late-1990s Los Angeles, where the fugitive finds help in the form of prostitute-turned-nun Sister Ann (Travis Brooks Stewart). Cheap sets, ludicrous plotting and endless kickboxing get a thorough pummeling from the MST3K crew in this beloved episode. On-ship antics include the formation of acid-rock band Narcotic Casserole."

The Girl in Lover's Lane
"Hilarious moviegoers Joel, Crow and Servo spew forth incredibly clever commentary while watching this dismal drama about an underhanded drifter (Brett Halsey) who falls for a small-town waitress (Joyce Meadows) and then gets wrongly blamed for her death. Directed by Charles R. Rondeau, "The Girl in Lovers' Lane" also features Jack Elam as local dimwit Jesse and Lowell Brown as wealthy runaway Danny."

First Spaceship on Venus
"American Brinkman (Gunther Simon), African Talua (Julius Ongewe) and Japanese Sumiko (Tani) lead an international crew on the first manned flight to Venus, where they learn a valuable lesson about nuclear terror in this fan favorite from the beloved cult series. In between making fun of the film's less-than-prescient predictions of the future, Joel (Joel Robinson) tries to turn down Tom Servo's sarcasm sequencer."

The Robot Vs. The Aztec Mummy
"Join sarcastic space traveler Joel and his clever sidekicks, Crow and Servo, as they poke fun at this awful Mexican horror movie in which mad scientist Dr. Krupp (Luis Aceves Castaneda) constructs a superpowered robot to steal an Aztec mummy's (Angel Di Stefani) valuable treasure. Co-starring Rosa Arenas, Crox Alvarado and Jorge Mondragon, this cheaply made film showcases a plethora of ludicrous characters and situations."
