Trivia

Bob Jillson and Hub Braden really enjoyed working with the director/producer Rod Amateau because he "appreciated" their effort and work on his project. Purposely interjecting humorous details and touches into the sets and the set dressing, Rod always picked up on their treatments. An example was the biker bar set. After researching a West Hollywood biker bar, the top of the bar imitated the actual biker bar...dressed with a chorus line of teddy bears. The peanut barrel was a child's toy chest, a giant open top football filled with peanuts for the cast to eat and to throw. The side wall with bike parts and wheels (like a mad bike sculpture) blowing out of the wall with police boots extending over the handlebars, fenders, and wheels. Amateau went nuts with laughter having a great experience filming the scenes in the set. See more »

I could not even comprehend that this was a movie.
12 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I felt like I had been locked in a basement for seven years, tortured, raped, and mentally abused by the time this thing was done.

This deserves a zero! it honestly does! It deserves a zero.

This film is evil incarnate. EVIL.

I still wake up every night. Screaming. Screaming.

I am honestly very disturbed by this turd of a "movie".

Manos: the Hands of Fate is better than this movie! THIS IS THE WORST MOVIE IN THE HISTORY OF ALL HUMANITY!! I WANT TO BOMB OURSELVES THAT'S HOW BAD THIS IS.
