Oh man I love this movie. It could make a better MST3K episode than Manos itself! Rent it ASAP! High point: the last scenes, after the bad guy is dead (another one from the plethora of unexpected twists in this movie). They extended the aftermath to a good 15 minutes, offering a pure cinematic delight! I can hardly imagine anyone will not fall from his couch laughing after THIS.
