No self-respecting cult-movie collector can truly call himself one without owning this horror clunker on their shelves. "Manos: The Hands of Fate," made famous after receiving heaps of ridicule as a feature on "Mystery Science Theater 3000," is one of the most famous bad movies of all time.
Its extreme-low-budget look, sound and feel have made it a must-see for all B-movie lovers. It's so beloved that one of its biggest fans hopes to pick up where the film's vision left off by giving it the sequel treatment.
"We're doing it because we love it," said Rupert Tailbot Munch, the film's director, writer and producer. "We're doing it on our own dime. We're doing it for fun and to see how far it can go. It's going to be a testament to the creativity and the craziness of all the people involved."
The plot would take place in the present, some 40 years after the original film. He also said he plans to shoot the film at some of the original locations in El Paso, Texas, and include some of the original cast members. He also hinted at a major character actor (please be Bruce Campbell) who might be interested in joining the cast, but he couldn't confirm his/her identity or involvement yet.
He wants his potential audience to realize that he doesn't plan on treating the sequel as a straightforward comedy or horror movie.
"It's going to be completely different from what people are expecting," Munch said. "I wouldn't be surprised if there was a musical number or two."
