Manos Explained!... Partially!...
28 July 2018 | by azathothpwigginsSee all my reviews

While not perfect, there's enough here to make HOTEL TORGO recommended viewing for the MANOS-MANIACS (like me!) out there. Like others, I was a bit concerned that the Neyman's were not involved, since they were pivotal to the brilliant anti-magnificence of the film. It was great to hear from someone from the production crew, and his stories were priceless! The tour of the original "sets", including the hellish house and those damnable pillars and slab, is a grand slam for seekers of schlock's true north. Best enjoyed immediately after one's viewing of the masterpiece. Somewhere, up above us, Torgo nods and quivers...
