I watched Hor-RIFF-ic Productions' take on Sleepaway Camp last week. I truly enjoyed their take on Friday the 13th and this one was even better and a bit more polished, though admittedly Sleepaway Camp is a laughably goofy film even without the riffing. I appreciate that they (and Ronin Fox Trax) cover 80s cult horror films that are likely too obscure for Rifftrax and too hard to procure for Cinematic Titanic.
ICWXP Lady Frankenstein and Bloody pit of Horror. I must agree that ICWXP have really nailed it. I am a fan of rifftrax and cinematic titanic, but these guys have something that I feel is missing in the other projects. They have that interaction with each other that feels so natural and unforced. I also feel that the host segments add to the character development. I can't wait for their next episode.

These guys have really got it going. Solid host segments (loved the one relating to the short) and top-notch riffing throughout the movie. My stomach hurts from laughing so much. They are excellent at slipping in and out of character and experts at voice inflection.
I strongly suggest giving either of their two available releases a try. Dare say they might be the best thing going today. I anxiously await future releases and the re-release of their first effort.
Nice to see Josh Way in the credits too.
I have to agree with you there Sky. I bought "The Bloody Pit of Horror" yesterday and it was terrific. I was kind of discouraged with iRiffs after my experience with "Destroy all Planets" but this has resold me to the concept.
I don't think ICWXP should even be classified as an iRiff. Their production is above all the other "fan releases" by a mile.
I feel that they surpass cinematic titanic and especially rifftrax. The effort they put in really shows.
We all love the old guys, but they are being out worked by ICWXP. Lets just hope that they can keep the quality up to the standards they have been. Four or five movies in it may be a different story (I sure hope not though).

This last ICWXP outing was my least favorite. It was too long for my tastes.

I really want to see the first one when they re-release it. I've read that they are removing the laugh track and doing some rewrites to the script. I also believe they are redoing a host segment or two.
Not sure I agree that ICWXP is a polished production yet. However, they are definitely on the right track. Their host segments are a little too padded for my taste and the comedic timing is a bit off but they are on the right track. The theater riffing is spot on! This is probably as close as we'll ever get to reserecting our favorite all time puppet show! Just a bit more polish and they'll have a truly great show. I await the next effort with anticipation. I'd like to sign up for their newsletter to be aware of upcoming releases.
After doing a couple fairly well known movies, Josh pulls this one out of who knows where. The movie itself is... awful. In a fun way. His riffing is solid. The VOD is well worth the $4.99 price. Fun stuff.
