The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy, The Girl in Lovers Lane, Zombie Nightmare, and Racket Girls are the movies in Mystery Science Theater 3000 Volume XV. Like all other MST3K box sets, this one also earns the Fanboy Wife Seal of Approval.

The Robot vs. the Aztec Mummy and The Girl in Lovers Lane are Joel episodes. The first film is an old one with men in bad costumes fighting each other. It has something to do with someone’s past life and an Aztec sacrifice. The Girl in Lovers Lane is about a girl who falls in love with a drifter, and then she gets murdered. The movie itself is pretty forgettable, but Joel and the robots make it enjoyable.
Mike’s episodes include Zombie Nightmare and Racket Girls. Adam West is in the first one, and it is probably the worst movie in the set yet it’s entertaining to watch. Dr. Forrester and TV’s Frank even try out some voodoo. Racket Girls is about professional women’s wrestling in the 1950s. The best part of this episode is the short, Are You Ready for Marriage? Even though this short was previously released in Volume 6, it’s great to see it with the follow up sketches, which include a robot marriage! Personally, I think the short is best part of the whole set, and I think all engaged people should have to watch it to see if they are “Ready for Marriage.”

  1. Joel and the robots made a lot of terribly-stupid movies into almost-cute movies. Or is it because it's always on late at night??
