Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet – “Killer Fish” (2018)

Despite the prospect of the MST3K gang laying into “Killer Fish,” an abominable 1979 rip-off of “Jaws” and “Piranha,” it doesn’t seem to quite come together in this episode. The movie itself is actually kind of fun, thanks to the presence of 1970s staples like Lee Majors and Karen Black, but the MST3K jokes are more amusing than funny this time around. Maybe it’s that the movie is not as bad as the movies they usually cover (like “The Day Time Ended” and “Lords of the Deep” for instance), and I found myself watching it more closely than I anticipated, but in any case the episode feels a little underwhelming.

Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
