A British woman visits her husband at a Mexican mine that he is attempting to reopen and discovers that the workers refuse to enter the mine because of an ancient curse. The couple enters the mine to prove there is no danger and inadvertently releases a demon that possess people's left hands and forces them to behave in a suitably diabolical manner. The only way for a possessed person to free themselves from this torment is to cut off his/her left hand, after which it scurries away in search of its next victim.Written by

A comparison between the US version and the Mexican version shows that both contain different footage.
The face-crusher death scenes are more violent on the Media Home Entertainment version.
The Mexican version has an alternate soundtrack, extended dialog scenes, cut scenes, alternate death scenes, and a slightly different ending. However, it is missing the first three minutes of the satanic cult chopping the girl's hand off. See more »
A couple (Samantha Eggar and Roy Cameron) while working in a Mexican mine discover a severed hand. The hand becomes one with Cameron and possesses him, causing him to commit all kinds of nasty murders.
Not as bad as other people make it out to be, but nowhere near good. And poor Eggar gives it her all even though she is in such an unispired production. Some of the effects are incredibly grotsque though. My rating: 5 out of 10.
Rated R; contains Graphic Violence, Nudity, and Language.
