    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Yep, that was indeed pretty terrible. “Manos: The Hands of Fate” has a 1.9-rating on IMDB, and is currently featured as #14 on their Bottom 100-list. And deservedly so, I might add. It’s definitely one of the very worst movies that I’ve ever seen in my entire life, and to my big disappointment, it isn’t even “so bad it’s good”- or “guilty pleasue”-bad like, say, “Jaws: The Revenge” or “Battlefield Earth”. Those at least have a certain trashy charm, even…

    "You have failed us, Torgo! For this you must die!"


    Does watching the 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' episode about 'Manos: The Hands of Fate' ("Manos?" "THE HANDS OF FATE!") count as me having watched 'Manos: The Hands of Fate'?

    Ah, screw it. I'm making it count!

    Without Joel, Tom Servo and Crow's input keeping me comedically stimulated, I would never be able to watch 'Manos: The Hands of Fate' all the way through, due to it being the cinematic…

    Preface: My friends and I have been attempting to find the best "worst" movie and this is one of the films that we watched in that attempt.

    Oh 'Manos'. This is another point of contention here. I really have a rough time getting through this one but my friends love it and have a great time laughing at it. It is a classic "bad" movie and it has the MST3K stamp of approval which makes my booing kind of null…

    I seriously recommend inoculation by viewing the MST3K version first. Unprepared exposure could be fatally tedious.

    The mind-blowing ineptitude of just about every aspect of this picture provides for some golden moments of unintentional comedy, but those aspects wear themselves out pretty quickly. A significant re-edit might produce a half-way (OK, maybe quarter-way) decent low-budget horror featurette, but as it is, the movie's 74 minutes rapidly become interminable.

    Is of course, awful. Loses comedic steam in the second half.

    Kind of amazeballs, kind of balls. I've seen and liked worse, which doesn't say much about my tastes.

    A heavily unconventional, insanely uninteresting and some of the worst editing to have ever graced filmmaking.

    The film follows a family going on vacation and stopping at a "hotel?" that is housed by a satanic group? Every single performance is garbage, over the top or flat out boring. No one in particular stands out whatsoever. It's more or less the characters lack of motivations and extreme lack of character background, story or development. The characters do absolutely nothing. It's a…

    Stick with the Mystery Science Theater version. This is one boring and inept film. Once in a blue moon this film during the run time becomes so surreal it is mesmerizing- but that's incredibly rare. Most of the time it's just a slog.

    This movie is not fun at all. It's stultifying.

    This is so bad, but there is no negative ratings available. Some ideas are better left unthought.
