Unlike most video game movies, especially early attempts, the 1995 Mortal Kombat film is not terrible. If you’re interested in seeing just how not terrible it is, you can watch it tonight alongside the live-tweeting Mortal Kombat 11 team.

At 7 PM PT / 10 PM ET, the Mortal Kombat 11 official Twitter account will begin watching and tweeting along to the original movie. You can use the hashtag #MortalKombatWatchParty if you start the movie at the same time, either through your personal copy or via Netflix.
The original Mortal Kombat film featured some truly inspired casting. Christopher Lambert starred as Raiden, while Bridgette Wilson of Billy Madison fame played Sonya Blade. Series co-creator Ed Boon performed the voice of Scorpion himself, as no one could match those gravely pipes.
