One of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 faves. A little boy who has an extensive array of pets he likes to call "specimens" finds an alien egg to hatch, somewhat like Horton. The creature manages to use his snout to suck up peanuts and warp time and space with his fingers. Unfortunately, his brother who is found by poachers go on a killing spree. Written by

Originally intended as a low-budget horror movie about an evil alien. After the success of E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982), the producers made the alien into a lovable character, and added a kid who befriends it. Director Juan Piquer Simón was not satisfied with the final result. See more »

They say that MANOS is the worst movie that MST3k has ever shown, I beg to differ. I'm not just saying this to get it through that this movie is a piece of trash, I actually mean everything I'm going to say. This movie is so awful it's unbelievable. I never thought anyone could make a movie that I actually hated as much as this heap of garbage. There is absolutely nothing scary at all, except the fact J.P. Simon made this as a serious film. The acting, dubbing, directing, dialogue, producing, editing, anything you can say about this is in the poorest quality. They couldn't even use the right opening credits for the re-release, they had to use choppy scenes of "The Galaxy Invader" for no reason at all. Why would anyone in their right mind actually want to see this without Joel and the bots? Who would want to see this in its uncut, subtitled version? Who would want to see this at all. Scene for scene, much worse than "Plan 9..."
