I think there are lot of people who misunderstand the surreal masterpiece, that is Manos. After the first view, I despised it.
But then I watched it again. 4 times. Now, I can see clear. It is a movie, that my wretched words cannot describe. I'm not worthy. I saw the genius of it...it was like a shot with diamond bullet, right into my forehead. There is no other movie like this, this is a truly unique experience. It is so depressing, yet it will let you become one with the universe...it will make you feel alone.
Maybe next year, I'll go to a pilgrimage, to El paso.
Now you are probably thinking I'm some kind of Psycho, and you are pretty much right. TeddyR

The funny thing about the MST3K episode is that they make the thing enjoyable despite this probably being the worst movie they've ever seen. But the Castle of Fu Manchu was probably better filmed yet was so boring and horrible the MST3K crew couldn't make it enjoyable. I'll never watch that episode again, and I have the MST3K Manos episode on DVD which is neat.

Harold P. Warren must of been sniffing that fertilizer while he was making this film. Because some of this seems like a idea by a guy getting high off of something.

The cops in this movie are idiotic, they stalk the smoochers and yet seem completely unconcerned with gunshots. They have got to be som e of the most useless cops ever captured on film. But anyway, good review.

MANOS is the worst movie ever made. NOT Plan 9......Manos.

The world should gauge every bad movie
made by mankind with this standard and no other.

I have this movie, seen 80% of it
and  honestly can't watch the rest. Might be
"talked into it" for a special occasion. Like, at gunpoint.

Even then, i'm not watching the scene with the family
singing "row, row, row, your boat gently down the stream."
It a viscious attack on the dignity of the family unit because it
was included in this movie
and I really think they sung that song at a pitch that
conflicts alpha/beta waves of the human brain.

MANOS should be displayed in the Smithsonian Institution
as the worst movie ever concieved by man.
It's a disgraceful, inept movie stealing all good ideas from movies
made prior to it. To top it all off it was filmed in 16mm!!!

MANOS looked really good years ago on UHF TV
when the reception was poor, like on a rainy day.
At least then it had an excuse to be bad.

Only the few, the priviledged know the truth:
MANOS is the worst......not Plan 9.

I watched-"Manos: The Hands Of Fate"..3 days ago via Utube, This movie is so bad, But yet so good! I loved this movie. Now that "It" has a cult following, this Ultra Low Budget Z Movie Will Live On Forever. I dedicate these comments to Actor John Reynolds (Torgo) R.I.P.

Have to agree. There's a fair few people on the site saying that Plan 9 is the worst film ever made. They are all wrong of course. This is most definitely it. Plan 9 is bloody awful, but not in the same league. If Plan 9 is the Citizen Kane of bad movies, then this is The Godfather of bad movies. I watched this over New Year 2010 with a very good friend of mine. We had watched our fair share of s**t on drunken bad movie nights in the past - Troll 2, Shark Attack 3, Grotesque, The Room (a personal favourite  TongueOut), but nothing prepared us for this. It was bad enough watching the MST3K version - I'm really not sure I could sit through the whole unedited version of it i.e. as Hal P Warren intended it. After the extremely long driving sequence at the beginning, I was just like the robots, practically sobbing into my beer (and no, beer does not make this film any more bearable)...

But,

I still keep getting drawn to this pile of crap (the MST3K episode anyway), like moths to lights. Torgo's "Sexy time" has gotta be the most awe-inspiring scene in movie history:

"The Master wants you but he can't have you, I want you!" BounceGiggle



Is there something wrong with me?  Question

I heard torgo had very bad joint pain during the movie, so they gave him pain pills so he had no idea what he was doing because he was so high. At the end of the movie he actually O.Ded
So this movie killed him

The crappiness of Manos is so unreal, that there's something about the product that makes it one of mhy favorite train wrecks (another is the Pinto and Vega TeddyR)

I was moronic enough to watch this one by myself... with no booze... I was pulling my eyes out with boredom. Having said that, I was glad to have seen this and not the Mystery Science Theater 3000 version. No offense but I can't stand those guys!

     Astoundingly BAD! Nonsensical! The  slowest, dullest catfight in film history! Didn't anyone notice the clapper in shot?

     Cool robe, though.

Rifftrax (Known for having Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy of MST3K) just showed this nationwide in theaters. It was a laugh riot. I actually bought this film on DVD and have the renewed re-release of the dvd of MST3k that features a documentary that someone else made about the Manos. Only 1 actor they could find and talk to throughout the film. Many are dead, the rest are unknown.
The man who played Torgo shot himself shortly after the premiere of the film. Poor guy.

Torgo will always be near and dear to my heart. I saw a preview for the sequel (yes, a sequel) and it looks.......well...quite lame. It's supposed to be more of a comedy but it doesn't look very comical.
