It’s Manos!

THIS is Torgo.

Talking about Torgo made me feel nostalgic so I thought about preparing my small tribute for Manos The Hands Of Fate. Regardless what you might think of my… umm… harsh words, I am somewhat fond of the movie and sat through the original and unadulterated version three times. Really. As you may know, Manos was catapulted to dubious fame in the Mystery Science Theater 3000 show and the constant riffs by Joel and the bots certainly helped to relieve most of the pain and boredom (I stress most). But looking at the movie in perspective, experiencing its raw nature and taking into account the circumstances behind its fateful conception, one comes to realize just how weird and deranged can be this world we’re living in. It was indeed a revealing experience.
