On their way to wherever, Michael (Harold P.Warren), Margaret (Diane Mahree) and their daughter Debbie (Jackey Neyman) find themselves forced to spend a night at a place in the middle of nowhere which is run by creepy caretaker Torgo (John Reynolds), who keeps rambling on about his undead Master (Tom Neyman), then tries to rape Margaret, then Debbie's dog is killed by who- or whatever, and so on ... but hey, it's still better than spending the night in the car, right?

Cut to the Master and his six wives (Stefanie Nielson, Sherry Proctor, Robin Redd, Jay Hall, Bettie Burns, Lelanie Hansard), who are of course also undead, and who quarrel over what to do with the new arrivals. There are those who want to kill them and those who don't. The Master, who seems to worship a God called Manos and who wears a cape with hands on it, kills Torgo for taking the little family in, then for no apparent reason identifies one of his wives as a traitor and kills her as well.

Finally, our little family get freaked out at the place they're staying at, and they decide to make it back to civilisation on foot - bad idea, since civilisation is far away. Margaret strains her ankle, and now Michael decides to head back for the house, since they have already looked there and won't do so again - how exactly he comes to that conclusion is beyond me, but the conclusion is dead wrong anyways, since once at the house, they are overcome by the Master, and while both Margaret and little Debbie are made his wives, Michael is installed as Torgo's successor, caretaker of the house in the middle of nowhere.


A bad movie gem: Manos: The Hands of Fate's plot is unbelievably silly, and it's not at all helped by a cast of amateur actors, sloppy editing with no sense for continuity, limited dirt cheap sets and production values, and a score that undermines the film's atmosphere - and still, these are exactly the reasons that keep you watching the film, and some scenes, despite everything, even seem inspired, like the almost avant garde fight scene among the Master's wives, all dressed in white gowns, on desert sand set to an improvisational saxophone score. It's so-bad-it's-good in the best Ed Wood-meaning of the expression.
