Trivia

Top billing goes to Ernest Walch, while Ernest Vilche receives 9th billing (only 12 receive credit). Due to the jumbled nature of this patchwork feature, it is a distinct possibility that the same actor was mistakenly billed twice under different names (but not much different). See more »

Curse of the Stone Hand (1964)

BOMB (out of 4)

Here's another history lesson for you fine folks, this time we take another look at the incredible hack Jerry Warren who really is the worst director ever. What Mr. Warren would do is buy foreign movies, cut them in half, hire John Carradine to film a couple new scenes and then add narration over the foreign elements of the film. Warren would then release these films as something "new" but they always turned out horrible and that's no different here. A mysterious stone hand is causing people to kill themselves but who cares? The "stone hand" only shows up twice and really doesn't play a part in the film. Warren took a Mexican film and another one from Chile to edit together and on their own both films appear to be quite good but with 2/3rds of them edited out there's really nothing this film is good for.
