Wiki

Arguably the worst movie that our lovable pals Joel, Crow, and Tom Servo have ever had the pain of watching,Manos: Hands of Fateis destined to be anMST3Kclassic for this very reason. Not only is there a sparse, illogical plot, but the cinematography is nonsensical (note Servo's point about the endless countryside ride in Texas). That said,Manosmust be watched, and cringed at, and commented on by its viewers because of the director's amazingly awful vision of what a horror film should be. What plot there is involves a vacationing family being trapped in a remote ranch house in the desert that's "managed" by a greasy, what looks to be stoned, oversize bow-legged keeper named "Torgo." As the movie goes on, and one finds the "master" and his harem of semi-dead women clad in see-through white dresses, one wonders more and more what the hell this movie was supposed to be about. Even Dr. Forrester and Frank feel a little sorry for Joel and the boys' being forced to watch this one. Still, you'll find yourself spiraling into hysterics when the women get into a big catty brawl while Joel and the boys liken their antics to a Ladies Guild performingA Midsummer Night's Dreamor female dirt-wrestling. An episode you'll love to suffer through.--Karen Karleski

This has been considered a classic in the whole MST3K series, and rightfully so.  Manos:  The Hands of Fate is quite possibly THE embodiment of cinematic ineptitude, and it's so all-around laughable that you wonder how such an atrocious thing even came into existence.  I'm so glad the crew of Mystery Science Theater 3000 exhumed this cinematic abomination in the early 90's and immortalized it as one of the worst movies ever.

In MST's 'Amazing Colossal Episode Guide,' Best Brain-member Mary Jo Pehl writes that this movie haunted the whole team, and became 'our standard by which all other [films] are measured.' Why? 'Manos' is 'far and away the most loathsome, repulsive, unpleasantest, vilest, ickyest, blechiest film to come along in MST3K's rich film history.'And she's not kidding either. If you ever -- in some God-forsaken universe -- find yourself watching 'Manos: The Hands of Fate' without the benefit of Joel and …
