Our RiffTrax Best of the Worst 10th Anniversary Survey Results

In April, I was going to update my Top Ten RiffTrax B-Movies list.  After I started adding in the few new movies (including my new number one), I remembered the tenth anniversary of RiffTrax was this year.  This deserved something bigger.

That's why I turned to you, the rest of the fanbase.  I asked what your favorites were, and the response was outstanding!  Compiling the results took slightly longer than I was expecting, but I am finally done.

I present to you the Ultimate Best of the Worst Top Ten RiffTrax B-Movies, Shorts, Live Shows, and "Just-The-Jokes" MP3s!

A huge thank you to everyone who took part in making this list!

If you haven't seen any of the titles listed, make sure to remedy that. And please, do it by purchasing them through RiffTrax.com.  As always, I like to stress the importance of buying these riffs.  Mike, Bill, Kevin, and the rest of the writers (like Conor, Molly, and the other Mike) work really hard to bring this level of entertainment to us all.  These are the poor souls who have to sit and watch these movies over and over again without the benefit of the riffs.  That is more than worth the extremely reasonable price tags on these movies.  And if you do get these riffs by other means, you can still throw some money their way by heading to the donations page.

Another great way to support these guys is by going to the RiffTrax Live events.  Time Chasers, the first show of 2016 is May 5 (with an encore on May 17), and of course, the huge MST3K Reunion show is June 28 (and also on July 12).  There are going to be two other shows this year, but they are yet to be announced.
