Update #5: And the Legend Continues...

Greetings citizens of Kickstartia! As the days tick on, we are continuing to negotiate with studios. We don’t have anything concrete to report but just wanted to tell you that we are still working hard to land Twilight for our August show, and talking with other studios to be prepared in case it doesn’t work out. Hopefully we are forming relationships with these studios that might benefit us for future events and releases as well!

So that is our update on the title: that we essentially have no updates since our last update.

A couple of people have emailed about their backer rewards. All expected reward release dates are listed on the Kickstarter page. Aside from the Thank You page, all of them will coincide with showtime in August, with downloads of the show itself coming a few months later. We have over 6,000 backers, so for the sake of expediency, all rewards will be delivered together. If you have any questions about your rewards, please feel free to contact us on Kickstarter, or email

We hope to get back to you soon with some exciting news! Until then, enjoy your day in Kickstartistan!

- Mike, Kevin and Bill

      Whatever you are able to obtain, I'm sure it will be great. Come to think of it, you are just great, period. I probably would have given you money just to sit there and be great.

      I completely understand the "no update" update. I have to make those from time to time.

      Just keep at it guys. I'll be happy with whatever movie you end up with. : )

      The Holiday Special isn't actually a movie but a variety show.

      Side note: I recently watched the riff of Star Wars Holiday Special. How did Twilight beat out that?? There's no contest! Even now, I twitch a little bit thinking of Stinky, Grimy, and Stumpy...or whatever the #@$% their names were

      A TWILIGHT LIVE UPDATE! No update....

      "You raised my hopes and dashed them quite expertly, sir. Bravo!"

      If negotiations don't work, you might have to resort to Plan 9 - forcing the studio execs to watch Manos.

      Still thinking that "Super Mario Bros." would be a great alternative title if Twilight doesn't work out (and it'd probably be cheaper and more open to digital distribution, not that I have any way of knowing that).

      Yeah MST3K's Boggy Creek II one of the funniest MST3K episodes. SNAP INTO A SLIM JIM.

      That title brings back some really funny memories of MST3K's Boggy Creek II: And The Legend Continues. "The legend be not heard about by anyone."
