Absolutely hilarious to see the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000 back together ripping movies...live! Took my daughter to see this with me. She's too young to remember MST3K, but wants to see it now because she loved this movie. Can't wait for the next one in December!

The guys from MST3K were just as funny as they used to be. My husband and I had a great time laughing and can't wait to go see the next one.

This movie seems tailor made for the RiffTrax treatment, and is perfect for the Halloween season. A classic old, campy, overacted horror movie with bizarre characters and even more bizarre situations.

I'm a very big MSTie, always have been, so my review will always be a bit biased towards the guys, this was their ninth 'live' riffing event, and I'll give it a solid 3.5 out of 5. For me, the best jokes and the best gags end up being repetitive jokes, the ones that you can bring up over and over again, it just seems to be the bread and butter of a good riff. Night of the Living Dead didn't seem to have very many opportunities for these jokes, and I could tell the guys were struggling to find things to say. That being said, I am still very much looking forward to their live riffing of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians. Should be great!

Before you go to see this film, understand that what you're getting is the original
Night of the Living Dead film, being ripped to shreds by the MST3K guys. If you know that going into it, you're well prepared.
That being said, I had some slight trepidation before I saw the film, wondering if the guys had managed to keep their comedic wits sharp in the time since MST3K left the airwaves. But have no fear, they're as sharp as ever, and this film was a riot! The Burbank theater was a packed house and the audience wholeheartedly agreed with my take on the material because as the laughter revealed, we all enjoyed an evening of side splitting fun!
