    Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. Thank you to Alex and Sarah who graciously gave me a copy of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 episode of the film. For a plot summary, you can find one here. Basically we're talking about two sub-par short movies embedded in the framework of a story told to a boy by his grandfather, played by Ernest Borgnine. I originally started watching the movie about a year ago when Alex and Sarah first gave me the tape. I made it about halfway through at the time -- to the point when the clapping toy monkey started causing mysterious accidents. I'm happy to say, I finally finished the movie and I'm relieved that Merlin found his evil toy monkey and Ernest Borgnine's "story" had a happy ending. Alex and Sarah, let me know if you ever want this gem back!

    Rock n' roll Martian! Rock n' roll Martian!
