Manos Hands of Fate!

Besides loving commercials DH and I are addicted to B rated sci-fi movies, so when Elvia Mistress of the Dark returned DH and I were so EXCITED!!!  NO ONE does bad movies like Elvira. She recently hosted "Manos The Hands of Fate".  It's rated the 2nd WORST film in history. YES! We did watch the entire movie!! Laughing hysterically through the whole movie.   We can't even imagine what the worst film is....  There are NO words!!!  So instead.... here is one of my favorite clips.  (Gotta LOVE uTube!! You really can find anything!)

Just because I'm sure after watching that you feel the need to know more... right?? RIGHT!!!! Here is some trivia about Manos!

1. The Hands of Fate is a film written, directed, and produced by American fertilizer salesman Harold P. Warren in 1966 as a result of a bet he made with scriptwriter Stirling Silliphant in a bar. He intended to make a successful horror film on a shoestring budget.

2. The camera on which Warren shot the film could only record takes of a maximum of 30 seconds.

3. All of the sound was done in post-production. Hal Warren, his wife, Tom Neyman, and Diane Mahree recorded the voice tracks in a sound studio. Everyone else’s dialogue – including Torgo’s – was dubbed by other people.

4. Actor John Reynolds built metal riggings as leg braces on the bottom of which were cloven hooves. Torgo was half-man, half-goat! Unfortunately, the silhouettes of Joel, Tom, and Crow obscured the few shots where we might have been able to see Torgo’s goat feet. Additionally Reynolds wore the braces backwards, causing him a great deal of pain.

But my favorite triva fact???
According to killerfilm.com, there is a sequal coming called "Manos: The Search for Valley Lodge". In which “A woman battling mental illness regains her memory and heads into the deserts of El Paso, Texas to confront her inner demons and discover her mysterious past.” Some of the original cast members will be back. The film is gearing up for a 2011 shooting schedule for a 2013 release." Wow..............

Zac want to come over for dinner and watch a MOVIE?!?!?!?
