Storyline

A family driving through a small town gets lost and winds up at a backwoods shack managed by Torgo, who takes care of it while The Master is away. The Master worships Manos, an evil deity, and he also wears a neat cape. When Torgo lets the family stay, The Master awakens and does mean stuff like burning off Torgo's hand and sicking his dog on the family pet. Meanwhile, The Master's wives wrestle for his favor.

Manos is Manless
26 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The sad story of a philandering master and his spurned male companion...

Tall, dark and handsome Manos is the satanic version of Hugh Hefner complete with the ever-present robe and scantily-clad harem of interchangeable women of low morals... he flaunts his cheap, gullible trophy wives in the face of his lovable sidekick.

He is a cruel and unfit master; abusive! Belittling!

Why does Manos continue to court susceptible ingenues when he has a perfectly good ManSlave at home?

One cannot help but feel sympathy and a freakish attraction to the exotic yet subtle Torgo. The big knees, the stuttering voice, the floppy hat, and the utter eroticism of his manservant status...

When I found out he was actually supposed to be a SATYR (insert squeal of delight here!), I wept at the yummy thought of brushing his furry goat-like legs, polishing his hooves, trimming his beard, even flea-dipping him if necessary...

But instead, our godly goat is led like a lamb to the slaughter :(

Curse you Manos Hnds of Fate for robbing me of this fantasy!

WHY, MANOS? WHY?
