Better than halfway through the latest set of Mystery Science Theater 3000 DVDs by now, I've rewatched the episode "Tormented." The movie is another one by Bert I. Gordon, auteur of such Mystery Science Theater classics such as "The Amazing Colossal Man" and "Earth vs. the Spider". I suppose that to me, his work, like other movies from the 1950s shown on the series, amounts to "unshakeably mediocre." Compared to certain movies from the 1960s or 1980s in the series canon, they seem much more the product of people who were actually trying, but that still doesn't make them especially high-quality, or even all that interesting. I was therefore wondering once more just how I would react to the episode.
'Huh, Tormented. I have a feeling this is aptly named.' )
