Rounding out the July 4th home releases are Peelers and a 9-movie creature feature set on DVD featuring all sorts of murderous beasties.

I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! stars Edwina Currie and Jake Quickenden got to play dress-up during the latest Dingo Dollar challenge.

The pair took on the roles of spider and a Venus fly trap in an insect-collecting mini-task.

"A hungry venus fly trap, is waiting way up high, for its favourite tasty snack, a pesky jungle fly," Jake read aloud.

"The spider's web is holding, the plants beloved stash, throw them up to feed the trap, to win the precious cash."

Edwina began to unbutton her shirt, much to the surprise of Jake, who asked her if she was stripping already.

"You've got to do something for the show, haven't you?" the former MP joked.

Having spotted the costumes, the two then tried to decide who would make a better thrower (spider) and who was better at catching (the fly trap).

DVD Review - Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie (1996)

Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie, 1996.

Directed by Jim Mallon.

Starring Michael J. Nelson, Trace Beaulieu, Kevin Murphy and Jim Mallon.

Synopsis:

Mad scientist, Dr Clayton Forrester has concocted a diabolical scheme for world domination, to subject the human race to the worst movies ever made. This time it’s the classic 1950's B-Movie This Island Earth.

When I was about 14 I once stumbled upon a little film at 1:15am named Mystery Science Theatre 3000: The Movie. While I never forgot the name, I never saw it again or found it on DVD. A couple of years later it was on TV again at around the same time, which I recorded, so the only version of this film I’ve ever owned is a VHS copy taped off TV. When I got the Internet I discovered that the film was based off a TV show that had been running for years.
