TommyTuckerPoster1.jpg
$0.99
This extraordinary film dares to do something no other safety short has ever dreamed of: killing its 9-year-old title character and sending him to hell; a hell run by two doughy, charisma-free demons wearing sensible jackets. Yes, Tommy Tucker, our protagonist, is a whiny, friendless little twerp...

BeAmericanPoster1.jpg
$0.99
In 2009, if you ask someone What It Means To Be An American you'll get a simple response: a willingness to deep-fry anything and everything.  But back in the fifties, before anyone had invented deep-fried cigarettes, it wasn't as clearly defined.  School children, construction...

If there's one thing that a small niche of people like, it's car racing! It's all there: the drama, the passion, the guy who for some reason shouts "Boogity Boogity Boogity." But we understand that for some people, sitting for hours and watching cars do five hundred laps...

TeenTrialPoster.jpg
$0.99
Someone has to be on trial. It may as well be teenagers. And they deserve it, too, what with their shenanigans, the hell-raking, their common thuggery, rough manners and unkempt flat-top haircuts. I don't think it would be overstating things to say that teenagers are the largest threat facing...

BeautyRitualsPoster.jpg
$0.99
Where should one turn when looking for beauty advice? To the fashion magazines that litter our grocery store checkout aisles, with their fresh-faced starlets with perky bods and millions of dollars? Hardly! Instead, refer to the comforting, matronly advice of Constance Bennett, an...

$0.99
Ladies and gentlemen: Moose Baby.    Think of Howard Carter as first he gazed upon the freshly unsealed chamber of the tomb of Tutankhamen; that should give you some sense of the awe and wonder we felt as we sat in a nondescript screening room poring over a series of colorless and...

When we think back on the list of the great entertainers of the past century, a few names universally come to mind:  Sinatra.  Carson.  Lohan.  And Jimmy.  No, not Jimmy Walker.  And not Jimmy Stewart, (Really?  You guessed Jimmy Walker before Jimmy Stewart?)...

ShakeHandsPoster3.jpg
$0.99
The world of Safety Instructional Films breaks down into two distinct categories: Shake Hands with Danger, and everything else.  If you like your hair feathered, your glasses huge and your moustaches grown at an eighth grade level, this is the short for you. Narrated by a guy who was rejected...

BillofRightsPoster.jpg
$0.99
It seems that forty years ago, one out of every three instructional films was about The Bill of Rights (the rest were about either syphilis and/or Mr. Bungle.)  So it was only natural that we'd finally get around to riffing a short focused on the Bill of Rights, and we had just the one in...

HighwayManiaPoster.jpg
$0.99
Sometime between the invention of pyromania and the discovery of Beatlemania, the country suffered a frightening outbreak of Highway Mania. Accounts of the disorder are sketchy, but if the film Highway Mania is to be believed, it involved shaving your head, scarring your face with a good, strong...

Yes, it's that's time again—time to go back to school. And when it's time to choose with whom you'd like to go, the options are nearly limitless: your uncle Barney, Richard Simmons, that guy who sits in front of you at church and occasionally cleans his ears with his keys,...

  When a short entitled Alcohol Trigger Films turned up at RiffTrax HQ, we jumped at the chance to riff it. After all, everyone who works here is a big fan of the subject matter: trigger films. Alcohol we can give or take. But a chance to watch even one Trigger Film, let alone a...

Ground-breaking in its use of "toward" as the first word in its title (can you think of another?), Toward Emotional Maturity also pioneered the techniques of throwing reptiles at people and locking puppies in boxes as a way to demonstrate the deep deficiencies in the human character....

It can happen to any of us: we fall in with some free-spirited youths, get a few lime phosphates in our system, and before you know it we're rolling up our blue dungarees to impertinent heights, styling our hair into an ill-mannered pompadour and beating up our own fathers and rolling 'em...

You and Your Family. Much like gunpowder and an open flame, combining the two is not recommended (especially if mom's been drinking.) But every now and then a scenario arises where you must remove your iPod’s ear buds, emit a contemptuous, full-bodied sigh and actually interact with your...
