You will want revenge upon "Twister's Revenge"!

Ahoy, HMNers -

Hope you're having a horrible summer! It is with great shame & regret that HMN is proud to present August's film, 1987's "Twister's Revenge" -- the talking monster truck movie. It's not often that we find a film with no trailer, but this doorknob of a flick doesn't even have a poster nor VHS box art. It's as if it was never supposed to be seen -- be seen -- be seen --

Mr. Twister is the top monster truck in Wisconsin, mostly because of the computer modifications made by Shelley, its owner. Shelley and her fiancé, Dave (Mr. Twister's driver) are on the junk car-encrusted road to success until three redneck mechanics get wind of the expensive computer equipment inside Mr. Twister, and scheme to steal it.

When the theft turns into Shelley's kidnapping, Dave vows revenge and finds Mr. Twister has developed a personality & speech. The chase to find Shelley and defeat the stone-dumb bad guys features a showdown between Mr. Twister and a tank, and the destruction of an outhouse named -- yes, the Shit House. Welcome to the Shit House.

The Complex - Dorie Theater

Get on down early to ensure a seat! We'll have recession pricing on beer, wine, water, soda, and freshly-baked brownies. Your host for the evening is HMN's answer to Rod Serling, Tom Winkler. The film will be wonderfully interrupted by The Omelettes, who will provide improv and thought-provoking fart jokes.

Speaking of jokes, if you yell out the funniest riff of the evening, you will win a prize. So don't spurt out any old thing that comes to mind, make it extra special funny-like. It's the honeymoon suite of movie riffing!

  1. I'm incredibly flattered! I just did a Google search for "Twister's Revenge" (A non-union movie I non-union acted in as "Bear" in 1987) and found that I had made the big time Hollywood circuit this last weekend. How sad I am to have missed it!
    I feel so proud that you spotlighted my "Sh#t House" scene. I had forgotten my singular brilliance in breathing life into my character's dilemma as whether to try outrun the monster truck, or to try and out smart this 4 wheel drive articial intelligence by hiding out in the basement of someone's out door plumbing.
    Apparently, I am now officially brilliant and I thank the members of the academy.
