Film #8 of Bad Movie Saturdays!
I've seen the MST3K episode before, a long time ago, and I'm not sure if that counts as having seen the film, so I'm just going to count this as a rewatch.
Oh, boy, was this a delight! This might possibly be the worst film I've seen in my goddamn life, and I highly recommend it! Now, let me tell you a bit about it, so you can judge for yourself whether or…
O.K. O.K. *Ahem*, okay. Um, Mr. Warren? How would you refer to your hands, in this case? Oh, you don't understand what I mean, fucker? Well, let's say that, as an instance of an answer, I think that your hands are APPALLING INSTRUMENTS OF DISGUSTING DOOM, FUCKFACE!!! WASTED!!! IT'S ALL WASTED!!! MY TIME IS ALL WASTED!!! BLEACHING MY ASSHOLE WOULD'VE BEEN MORE MEANINGFUL THAN OBSERVING THE NUMEROUS ELEMENTS OF THIS EGREGIOUS PIECE OF SHIT!!! ED WOOD WOULD BE SO FUCKING…
"you know, every frame of this movie looks like someone's last known photograph."
The worst movie ever.
Im suprised I even made it through this movie. I think this is on the same level as Turkish Star Wars on the absolute shit filmmaking list
Manos is like looking into a mirror, you sorta see a reflection of what you bring to it. There are certainly worse 'worst movies.' Boring fun.
Known a contender for the worst movie of all time. It certainly lives up to that reputation. Unless you're really gung-ho, I'd recommend watching the MST3K cut of this movie. To at least have some on-screen commiseration while you suffer through it.
One of the worst films of all time? This isn't even the worst film I've watched this week. Is it trash? Yeah. The filmmaking is objectively terrible. However, it is unique trash. It is a kind of trash that I have not seen before and I appreciate it. It all added to the overall charm. I would watch this any day over the next incredibly mediocre, derivative, formulaic, personality-less movie that will probably be released any day now.
This movie is slow, drawn out, and horribly disjointed, but there's something slightly appealing about it... I might be the only one, but I think the "master" actually has a pretty cool/creepy look, with an awesome robe. Mainly, though, there's the unique, iconic, legendary performance of Torgo. On the other hand, oh boy, are the slow parts boring.
The Master would not approve.
(The only thing that makes it tolerable is the MST3K treatment.)
- "Welcome Back, Norman",
- "Prune Juice",
- "At Your Fingertips: Cylinders"
Movie with RiffTrax Commentary: 7/10
Awful Yet Compelling
Yes this is an awful film - I mean awful. Yet I find something compelling about it - something interesting about it in a weird sort of way.
This really is one of the world's worst movies - that I have to agree but it's so horrible that it's entertaining. It can be funny, weird and plain boring at the same time. This is a film you would have to see to know just how awful it…
