“MST3K: Manos – The Hands of Fate” Review

Posted by Josh Samford On August - 30 - 2011

I know we have been on a MST3K roll here lately and I appreciate all of the positive responses that the reviews have received, so now we’re ready to delve right back in with a very popular episode from their catalog! Shout! Factory are going to be releasing this 2-Disc version of the popular episode Manos: The Hands of Fate, and I highly recommend it if you’re a fan of the show! One of the biggest discoveries from the series, it has proudly stood atop any number of “worst movies ever” lists since the debut on MST3K and has garnered quite the cult following.

The Plot: Joel Robinson and his robotic friends Crow and Tom Servo are stuck in outer space aboard the Satellite of Love where they are forced, by the evil Dr. Forrester, to watch very bad movies. The crew try to make the most of the flicks that are presented to them by continually cracking jokes while the movies play on for the audience at home. This time it seems that Dr. Forrester and TV’s Frank have chose a movie so bad that even THEY feel rotten about sending it! The movie is Manos: The Hands of Fate, an insufferable picture that details a “frightening” roadtrip through the midwest as we watch a young family who stop off at a spooky little hotel. When they arrive they meet Torgo, who watches over the establishment while the master is away and before long all three (father, mother and daughter) are fending off a satanic cult lead by “The Master” who has a strange obsession with hands.
