Check out this trailer for the new RiffTrax Special: 90s Cyber Thrillers featuring Mike, Kevin and Bill riffing on Hackers, The Lawnmower Man and The Net. The full special is available on the RiffTrax site and runs 24 minutes. Even though it would be great to see the gang take on the full length films, it’s absolutely worth the $3.50 to see them laugh at Jeff Fahey’s telekinetic cyber-Frankenstein, Sandra Bullock’s competence with a computer and how hard Hackers tries to make downloading an extreme sport. They even make a Scorched Earth reference and for my money, that’s good comedy. Enjoy!
