I know...people talk about PLAN NINE FROM OUTER SPACE as the worst movie ever made, but they obviously have never seen MANOS! In comparison, PLAN NINE is CITIZEN KANE. It is RAGING BULL. It is GONE WITH THE WIND next to MANOS!
You are ill, my friend. Seek help.
P.S.: I love your avatar! What is it? A bit from a Tom Swift cover? Please tell!
I'm a big fan of bad movies. Manos, of course, is the apex of the glorious bad movie mountain. I'll admit though that I've never subjected myself to the non-MST3K'd version.
The production is an interesting story. Entertainment Weekly wrote it up in 2005:
The avatar is from the cover of "Tom Swift and His Atomic Earth Blaster". I loved the "Tom Swift Jr." books when I was a kid.
I should probably check out the original Tom Swift books. I believe many or all of them are public domain.
