    I don't think I had ever seen Manos on its own before, without MST3K. But taking the movie on its own terms, with the gorgeous HD restoration that offers, for the first time, actual definition, the film remains comical but also a surreal oddity with a unique sense of space.

    The Blu Ray allows for the blues and reds to pop on screen, but what really comes through is the surreal black background - the result of amateur lighting -…

    ★★★½ Rewatched by Jeff Williams 17 Nov, 2015

    Transcendentally bizarre, ineptly executed train wreck of a horror film that is nevertheless strangely hypnotic. Every facet of the production is terrible but what makes it watchable is the strikingly odd performance of John Reynolds, the horrible dubbing, the terrible music choices and the lack of coherent editing which at times comically hangs bad actors out to dry while at others jump cuts into non sequitur oblivion. The rural El Paso locations are existentially drab and visually ugly but add…

    Come on. No way is this the worst movie ever made.

    That this exists in a restored, HD format may be proof that anything is possible.

    There is no way out of here. It will be dark soon. There is no way out of here.

    It's reputation as one of the worst movies ever precedes it, this is actually a strangely interesting film. Yes, it is intermittently boring and poorly put together, structured, written, etc., but there's this low budget "we don't know any better" charm to the whole thing. The utter wrongness of almost everything is fascinating. Whether he intended to or not, Hal Warren made an idiosyncratic piece of outsider art that has managed to push itself into the pop culture consciousness. Torgo and The Master are a duo for the ages.

    A very well done Bluray remaster of a truly terrible film.

    Endlich in der neuen 2K-Restauration gesehen, inklusive liebevoll produzierter Features auf der Synapse Blu-ray. Ändert natürlich rein gar nichts an der hanebüchen inkompetenten, aber auch bezaubernd naiven Machart des Films.

    Singularly terrible, but a completely unique viewing experience. The new Blu-Ray looks great and is packed with features to put the film in context.

    An American nuclear family becomes hopelessly lost in the deserts of El Paso, Texas, when they find refuge at a remote house with a peculiar, seemingly crippled young man who often refers to an unseen "Master" of the shabby, underlit residence. A perfect "bad film"; supremely haunting, and so audaciously inept that it transcends normal movie virtues/flaws and becomes fascinating in an entirely unique way. All voices are badly dubbed; the editing is appalling. But at least the locations are…

    Yes, I did it. I watched the whole thing. Is this the worst film ever made? I'll never tell.
