What I Think Of: Manos The Hands of Fate (1966)
The Five scariest words ever grouped together bringing with it shame and derision, that when translated into English means, "The Hands: The Hands of Fate." Arguably the worst movie of all time made by a fertilizer salesman on a bet. Has a 20 minute driving scene that feels out of place at the beginning because titles were supposed to roll over it but the director forgot to put them in so it's just 20 minutes of watching someone driving. This film, like Poltergiest ruined everyone's life involved. Truly Manos's hands reaches far. Featured in one of the greatest Mystery Science 3000 episodes, this film is legendary for all the wrong reasons. So bad that once you watch it you can never erase it from your memory. You've been warned.
