Quick Dish Online: 8.9 THE MADS Are Back with “Battle of the Worlds” & The Original MST3K Mads

It goes without saying, but we’ll do it anyway. The Mads are back! Join Mystery Science Theater 3000 stars Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff (“Dr. Clayton Forrester” and “TV’s Frank”) Tuesday, August 9th, for a special livestream event as they live-riff on the 1961 sci-fi classic BATTLE OF THE WORLDS! The flick centers about a stray planet, dubbed “The Outsider,” which begins to mysteriously orbit the Earth, and threatens the humanity that attempts to explore it with lethal flying saucers. We know what Daniel Kaluuya’s response would be to that, “NOPE!” 

In addition to the screening and live riffing, there will be a post-show Q&A with The Mads and, of course, a very special guest will appear before your very eyes! This event will be so incredible you can join live for a chance to win a 12″x18″ poster print commemorating the event. Now that’s classy! Past guests who joined the crew include Mike Nelson (Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax), Bridget Nelson (Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax), Victoria Price (daughter of horror legend Vincent Price), Jonah Ray (Mystery Science Theater 3000), Kevin Murphy (Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax), Bill Corbett (Mystery Science Theater 3000, Rifftrax), Mary Jo Pehl (Mystery Science Theater 3000, RiffTrax, Jackey Neyman Jones (“Debbie” in Manos, and other familiars.
