How Do I Love Halloween - Let Me Count The Ways. First, The Are The Costumes
Manos, Hands of Fate is a totally terrible movie. Supposedly made to prove that it didn't take that much money to make a horror film - I think? But even cheesier than the dialogue, were the costumes. This is a copy of the one worn by "The Master" - and yes, those are actually big red hands decorating the front. My son, Zach, wanted to dress up as the character for Halloween. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to sew costumes, and I make really good ones. It was a little hard to suspend my normal perfectionism, but it was necessary this time for authenticity - since the low budget of the movie extended to the costume construction. Other than that, it was pretty easy. Good Times!
