Cinematic Titanic Episode One Promo - The Oozing Skull

In the far-off land of Kalid, President Amir lies on his deathbed. If this revered head-of-state dies, the brutal dictatorship that he has so lovingly cultivated will fall into a dark age of uncertainty and chaos. And so, in this moment of crisis, his loyal staff are left with no alternative but to choose the only logical and sensible course of action - to transfer Amir's brain into a younger, healthier, and most importantly, living body.

Enter Doctor Robert Trenton, a mad scientist of the traditional "they all laughed at me and now I'll show them" school. He, along with his assistant, Dorro, a little man with a big appetite for evil, and Tracy, a conniving beauty with a heart that's harder than her leathery, over-tanned skin, concoct a deliriously diabolical plan involving murder, body-napping, skullduggery,and oozy, gooey brains.

Afraid to watch this movie alone, aren't you? Well, now you don't have to, and neither will future generations, because The Oozing Skull has the almost historic distinction of being the first movie chosen for Cinematic Titanic - the new movie riffing delivery system.

Created by Joel Hodgson, creator of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Cinematic Titanic peppers The Oozing Skull with the kind of hilarious, rapid-fire commentary that fans of fine movie riffing have come to know and love. Joining Joel are his original Mystery Science Theater 3000 cast mates Trace Beaulieu and J. Elvis Weinstein, along with longtime MST3K writers and cast members Frank Conniff and Mary Jo Pehl. It's gonna get ugly, but then it's gonna get funny, so strap yourself in for the skull-oozing, gut-busting ride that is Cinematic Titanic.
