"Manos" The Hands of Fate (1966) (part 5 of 7)

After a shot of the full moon, we cut back to the campfire in the “dark place”. We can now see that the fire has got a weird, burnt sculpture sticking out of it that I think is supposed to look like a hand. Slowly, the Master begins to rise from his stone slab. He takes his Doberman by its leash and commands it to sit at his feet. This leads to a shot of the Master and the Doberman that’s supposed to make us go, “Ooooh, it’s so creepy, it’s just like the portrait!” And in case you’re brain damaged (and there’s a high likelihood of that by this point) we get yet one more [!!!!!!] shot of that portrait, just to make the resemblance clear. (Must – not – throw – shoe – through – TV…)
