This is a movie within a TV movie within a made-for-video movie. A boy is watching TV when a power outage forces him to talk to his grandpa for entertainment. His grandpa, a former screenwriter, re-tells an old screenplay about Merlin's Shop of Mystical Wonders. In it, Merlin sets up an enchanting store in a modern-day strip mall, accompanied by his gleeful wife and gnomes, snakes, dragons, etc. From this framing device, we then see two stories about people's encounters with items from the shop....

Whoa Nelly! Probably the worst MST3K treatment I've seen. I watched this after the Manos-fest was LOOONG over and everyone went home. It gets a star for Ernest Borgnine (his role was similar to that of Peter Falk's in The Princess Bride) and because EVERY MST3K flick has at least a few laugh-out-loud moments. In particular here - a dragon/lizard-like creature is slithering around and the hecklers are heard saying, "Gotta go drain the me!".

ANYWAYS you guys are lucky you missed this one, not too good on top of the fact the film was lousy and boring too. Poor Borgnine.

What's your rating of this movie?
