Manos: The Hands of Fate
Usually found in the same sentence alongside the phrase, "one of the worst films ever made," this grade-Z horror stinker got the Mystery Science Theater 3000 treatment in the 1990s, which bestowed upon Manos a richly deserved cult status. Besides, it's about a really sketchy cult run by the colorfully robed Manos, who resides with his harem and freakish henchman at a rundown bed and breakfast in the middle of nowhere.
Capital I Productions is staging a live adaptation of the film, with cameos by Storm Large, Jason Rouse (who starred in Portland Playhouse's Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson), and Sean McGrath (from LiveWire's Faces for Radio Theater). But the real brainchild behind the operation is Brian Adrian Koch, the drummer for Blitzen Trapper, who wrote, directed, and starred in this goofy adaptation. This is the second time Koch has put Manos on stage; his Last Rites Productions did it first in 2006.
