Who Ever Knew That A Documentary On What's Critically Acclaimed The Worst Movie Ever Made Could Be So Good., 21 October 2011
Author: WakenPayne from Valhalla

Manos The Hands Of Fate Is A Classic Amongst Fans Of Truly Terrible Movies, The Movie Despite It Having A Theatrical Release In 1966 Didn't Even See The Light Of Day After A Few Premieres.

All I Can Say Is Bernie Rosenblum Has Some Great Stories About This Movie ANd He Shed More Background Information On This Movie Than I Ever Knew. In My Opinion Hotel Torgo Is A Great Documentary And To Be Honest I'd Rather See This Than A Documentary About Any Other Movie Any Day. The Reason Is That I Find It Interesting To Talk About The Holy Grail Of Crappy Movies Than The Best Movies Ever Made Because You Don't Know What To Think At Manos Whereas Something Like Die Hard You Know Its A Good Movie.

The Funniest Part Was When Rosenblum Told The Story Of The Premiere Night. I Have Heard So Many Stories About That Because Of People Who Have Claimed It To Be A Comedy And They Loved It. Its Also Interesting To Hear Some Backstories On This Film.

Overall If You Are Ever Interested In "The Worst Movie Of All Time" Then I Say Please Get This (I Have It As An Extra On The Manos DVD (With The MST3K Episode!))
