Mystery Science Theater 3000 announces titles of 13 movies to be riffed in new season

After a two season revival on Netflix, the iconic series Mystery Science Theater 3000 is moving to The Gizmoplex, MST3K‘s own streaming service, for its latest season – which is the show’s 13th season overall. Six months ago, it was announced that two of the thirteen movies that will be riffed on the new season are Robot Wars and Demon Squad. Now the titles of every movie in the line-up have been revealed! was kind enough to provide synopses for each of the films:

Robot Wars: A renegade Megarobot pilot and an archaeologist must team up to thwart the Centro’s attempts to resurrect a hidden Megarobot, with which they can challenge the prevailing order.

Demon Squad: Nick Moon, P.I. (Paranormal Investigator), delves into a hidden world of monsters and creatures of the night as he takes on a case to retrieve an ancient artifact with astonishing power.

Santo in The Treasure of Dracula: Mexican wrestler El Santo invents a time machine. After somebody uses the machine to find the hidden location of Drácula’s treasure, El Santo must hunt down the vampire.

Beyond Atlantis: A band of adventurers invade a native island determined to grab a reported fortune in buried treasure. The islanders are just as determined to keep their sacred treasure. Complications ensue.

Munchie: A bullied boy meets Munchie, a friendly gremlin-like creature that dresses like a lounge singer, sounds like a stand-up comedian and has magic powers.

Doctor Mordrid: An unspeakable evil has come into our dimension and wants to rule over Earth, and only a mysterious sorceror known as Doctor Mordrid can stop him.

Gamera vs. Jiger: When an ancient statue is moved for display in Expo ’70, a giant, vaguely Triceratops-like monster is released. The monster goes to Japan in pursuit of the statue and ends up battling Gamera, the giant flying turtle.

The Batwoman: Batwoman is called to investigate a whacked out scientist that is capturing wrestlers and using their spinal fluid to create a Gill Man.

The Million Eyes of Sumuru: Sumuru is a beautiful but evil woman who plans world domination by having her sexy all-female army eliminate male leaders and replace them with her female agents.

HG Wells’ The Shape of Things to Come: Some time in the future, man has set up colonies on the Moon, when Earth becomes uninhabitable. A madman decides to destroy the Moon colonies with his robots and automated ships, and only three people and their robot can stop him.

The Mask 3D: A young archaeologist believes he is cursed by a mask that causes him to have weird nightmares and possibly to murder. Before committing suicide, he mails the mask to his psychiatrist, Dr. Barnes, who is soon plunged into the nightmare world of the mask.

The Bubble: Mysterious atmospheric effects force a pregnant woman and her husband to land their airplane in a remote town whose inhabitants behave zombie-like, repeating the same movements and sentences over and over. As the mystery unfolds the two find themselves trapped and search for escape.

The Christmas Dragon: A group of orphans goes on a journey to restore the lost magic and save Christmas.

That sounds like a winning season to me! I have been a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 since I was a kid, so I’m glad to see more episodes getting produced. This season earns bonus points from me for having some Full Moon movies on the list.
