SINCE WE REACHED…       YOU GET


Thanks to you, the Kickstarter community, we've had SIX consecutive years of successful campaigns to help fund our nationwide RiffTrax Live Shows. We're extremely grateful, since these events wouldn't exist without your help!  

This time, in embarking upon our 11th year of RiffTrax Live (which will culminate in Live Show Number 30!), we've curated an amazing selection of three super-cheesy B-movies that are ripe for riffing: the guy-in-a-rubber-suit creature feature OCTAMAN, the Casper Van Dien space odyssey STAR RAIDERS, and an ALL-NEW riff on a new HD transfer of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 favorite, THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION!!! 

We will once again broadcast the ensuing hilarity into 700+ movie theaters across America on April 18th, June 6th and August 15th, respectively, thanks to our friends at Fathom Events!  

Octaman - LIVE from Nashville on April 18th!
Octaman - LIVE from Nashville on April 18th!

Deep in the Mexican jungle, a legendary creature lurks in a radioactive swamp. Is it a man? Is it an octopus? No, it’s OCTAMAN! Okay, it’s a man in an octopus suit, but he’s really angry and decides to go on a light killing spree.

A scientific expedition sets out to study this atomic mutant and stop it before it kills again. They’re not very good at it, since Octaman kills quite a lot — probably because THE DUMB SCIENTISTS KEEP STEALING ITS BABIES! It seems there’s no stopping the monster until it develops a crush on the plucky lady scientist Susan Lowry (Pier Angeli) and does what all mutant sea creatures like to do - it knocks her out and carries her away. Will the rest of the team be able to rescue Susan before Octaman picks them all off one by one? Looks pretty doubtful!

Directed by the writer of Creature From the Black Lagoon, and featuring costumes and effects by a young Rick Baker, Octaman is a wonderfully awful rubber monster B-movie. Join Bill, Mike and Kevin live as they risk life and limb to deliver the laughs from the clutches of Octaman!

STAR RAIDERS - Taped in Nashville on April 17, broadcasting on June 6!
STAR RAIDERS - Taped in Nashville on April 17, broadcasting on June 6!

It’s the year 2762. The galaxy is plagued with warring factions using hokey special effects to destroy each other. Out of this chaos a hero rises: the dashing, exquisitely bearded Captain Saber Raine (Casper Van Dien). Saber and his elite squad of commandos (other actors) embark on a dangerous quest to save the Prince and Princess of an unnamed planet from the clutches of the Evil Overlord Sinjin - an overlord so evil HIS VERY SKULL IS FILLED WITH CHERRY JELL-O.

Can our heroes fend off Sinjin’s army of mutant androids and rescue the Prince and Princess? Probably! After all it’s Space Opera, but you never know!  

PLEASE NOTE: The Star Raiders live show will be filmed at the Belcourt on April 17, but broadcast to theaters on June 6. More details in this update.

THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION - LIVE on August 15th!
THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION - LIVE on August 15th!

There’s a monster in Wisconsin, and it’s going to slowly, VERY slowly, strike TERROR INTO YOUR HEART! Sure, your grandma could outrun it, but TERROR is more fun! When a fiery meteor lands in the woods, strange things begin to happen in this small Wisconsin town — even weirder than usual, and that’s a pretty high bar!

While the townspeople are picked off by spiders of varying sizes, two esteemed scientists ramble around the countryside in a late model sedan, where they find friendship, romance and a big mechanical spider built on a Volkswagen Beetle chassis!


To fund this trio of fantastic RiffTrax Live shows, we need your help! The up-front cost to pull it all off is beyond doing on our own, but with a little help from our fans, we can make it happen. In exchange, we've come up with some exciting rewards and V.I.P. packages just for you, including digital video downloads of ALL THREE live shows, an exclusive Kickstarter backer shirt, autographed posters, and more! Scroll down for some highlights.

We know you love exclusives, too. Become a subscriber to our Drip, back this campaign at the $50 reward level or higher, and you'll also get an EXCLUSIVE bonus reward: a super-collectible challenge coin!

So, friends - please join us once again and help us make another year of hilarious RiffTrax Live adventures possible: OCTAMAN on April 18th, STAR RAIDERS on June 6th, and THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION on August 15th, all broadcast to hundreds of movie screens around the U.S.A.


What is RiffTrax Live?

RiffTrax Live is a theatrical comedy experience that's best enjoyed with friends! Mike, Kevin and Bill perform their funny commentary (we call it "riffing") in front of a live audience, and we beam the resulting hilarity via satellite to cinemas across the nation. 

RiffTraxians, MSTies, and comedy fans alike throughout America will meet up in theaters to enjoy the show, live on the big screen.   

RiffTrax Live is a ton of fun, and we hope to see you there!


Who we are

The guys at RiffTrax.com have been providing hilarious movie commentary for years, first as writers and stars of the cult TV comedy show MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 – and then online since 2006, as RIFFTRAX. Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett have taken on movies both bad and not-so-bad — from READY PLAYER ONE to CASABLANCA, to oddities like FUN IN BALLOON LAND and A TALKING CAT!?! — with one mission: to make them funny! 

We've produced comedic riffs for over 600 titles that range from major Hollywood blockbusters, to obscure B-movies and educational short films. We've even been on TV on the National Geographic Channel, riffing zany animal shows. And that's not all - we have an amazing RiffTrax app that magically syncs our Riffs to the biggest blockbuster movies like STAR WARS, HARRY POTTER, and TWILIGHT!

Celebrity guests on various RiffTrax offerings have included Neil Patrick Harris, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Joel McHale, Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Paul F. Tompkins, Jonathan Coulton, Andy Richter, Kristen Schaal, John Hodgman, Mythbuster Adam Savage, Maria Bamford, Chris Hardwick, Fred Willard, NPR's Peter Sagal, and loads more.

If you're still not familiar with us, check out this video for a little taste of what we do at RiffTrax: 

Why we're on Kickstarter

Way back in 2009, we performed an experiment: a live movie riffing of the Ed Wood classic PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. We filmed the show in front of a huge audience at the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, and simulcast the whole event via satellite, LIVE, to 500 movie theaters around the U.S.A.

It was ragingly funny, and RiffTrax Live was born! Since then, we've done 26 more live simulcast shows over the past ten years, including cult classics like SAMURAI COP, "MANOS" THE HANDS OF FATE, and the "slrpnl"-pushing D-movie BIRDEMIC; the bug-infested classic STARSHIP TROOPERS; the SyFy sensation SHARKNADO; an MST3K CAST REUNION SHOW, and a whole bunch more, most of which were only made possible thanks to the generous support of the Kickstarter community.

Movie licensing costs a decent chunk of change, and the production costs for Live Shows themselves are prohibitively high. So, to have this wacky idea make any economic sense, we really do need your help. We have our deal with Fathom Events locked in, the dates are reserved for these shows, and we have some incredibly fun, cheesy movies ready to be riffed for three nights of hilarious entertainment – the rest is up to you! 


What do YOU get out of this deal?

Tons of great stuff! For starters, backers at every level get first dibs on tickets to see all of these live shows in person. That means we'll send out backer-only updates containing a secret link to buy your tickets 24 hours before they're available to the general public. That's an EXCLUSIVE advance purchasing window just for backing the campaign -at any level!

Besides that, we've got awesome exclusives at every reward level, including multiple digital-only tiers, as well as several physical items like an exclusive shirt, limited edition posters, DVDs and more! Here are some highlights:

Exclusive Backer tee designed by shirt.woot superstar Adam "Ape Lad" Koford ($85+)

Our pal Adam Koford is once again lending his talents, and we've got the current status of his incredible line art (still in progress). Behold: 



 A collectible soft enamel pin featuring Octaman himself ($90+)


2019 Live Show Series poster

At the $125 level, we have a poster celebrating all three Fathom Events live shows! And starting at the $200 level, Mike Kevin and Bill will sign it!

RiffTrax Live 2019 poster - $125+ (get it SIGNED by Mike, Kevin and Bill at $200)
RiffTrax Live 2019 poster - $125+ (get it SIGNED by Mike, Kevin and Bill at $200)

Original "ugly guy" artwork, hand-drawn by Mike Nelson himself! ($425+)

No two will be alike!
No two will be alike!

Get the ultimate RiffTrax Live experience with a V.I.P. package ($1,750 or $1,775)

As we've done for previous live events, we're also offering several fantastic V.I.P. packages that include meeting the entire RiffTrax crew in Nashville, tickets for the best seats in the house, getting your picture in the credits, and a bag full of exclusive RiffTrax swag.

Check out the massive list of rewards and their corresponding tiers to see all the various goodies that are up for grabs.

Unfortunately, we can’t give away tickets to the shows at individual movie theaters with the rewards. But - for the FIRST TIME EVER - we can give you digital downloads of ALL THREE SHOWS! That's in addition to all the other exclusive rewards created just for backers, like special behind-the-scenes videos, never-before-seen shorts, digital downloads of live show scripts, and more! 

All that, plus the priceless warm fuzzy feeling of knowing YOU helped make another year of RiffTrax on the Big Screen possible.


Become a DripTraxian and get a BONUS reward!

Drip is the subscription platform for creators from our friends at Kickstarter, and the only place for you to get behind-the-scenes RiffTrax stuff all year round! We've already created a whole slew of content available only to our subscribers, and we have an EXCLUSIVE bonus reward just for them!

DripTraxians (Drip subscribers) who back this campaign at $50 and higher will receive a super-exclusive, collectible coin as a free add-on to their reward tier. It will be 1.5" in diameter, struck in metal, with soft enamel insets on one side, and Kevin W. "Washington" Murphy in 3D on the other!  

This year's concept on the left; last year's actual coin on the right.

This reward will NOT be available anywhere else after the Kickstarter ends, and will be ONLY for backers at the $50 level and above who are also active Drip subscribers at the moment the campaign closes. 

As long as your Drip and Kickstarter pledges share the same email address, we'll know who's a subscriber - so the coin will be added to DripTraxians' pledges automatically! Click here to learn more and see what it's all about.


What if we get extra money, past our goal?

With your help, we’ve surpassed our goals in each of our six previous Kickstarter campaigns. And just like with those projects, all of the extra money we raise will go towards securing the rights for showing the movies in theaters, the top-notch production of the live shows, and to create all those awesome rewards!

Making these shows happen actually costs much more than our base goal. That’s just the reality of it. If we’re able to raise extra money, those additional funds go right back into putting on the best production we can.

All that being said...

Thank you, won't you?

We really, truly have the best fans on the planet, and we know how incredibly lucky we are. In fact, RiffTrax wouldn't still be here without our incredible fans, and we sincerely thank you for your support over these many years. We can't wait to make you laugh even more during 2019 – so please join us for RiffTrax Live! 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge to this Kickstarter is that we are unable to do the most obvious thing: pre-sell actual movie theater tickets to all the live shows. The reason for this is that we can't control which theaters will pick up the show, and on top of the fact that they all use different systems, the logistics of pre-selling tickets to all the various theater chains is pretty much impossible.

But we ARE able to offer a digital versions of ALL THREE LIVE SHOWS and tons of other digital and physical rewards available at all levels.

In the end, all we want to do is provide you with some great laugh-out-loud evenings, and to make the best shows we can. Thanks for being part of RiffTrax history!
