Manos: the Restoration

January 9, 2012

Manos: the Hands of Fate, restored!

Benjamin Solovey found the original 16mm work print of “Manos: The Hands of Fate!” This is one of the most famous films tweeked by Mystery Science Theatre 3000, and for a long time has only existed as a crappy video copy of an old crappy 35mm print. This new copy is the cleanest copy that probably exists. You have to see the side-by-side comparisons of the video version and what he’s got – it’s startling.

Ben has a Kickstarter campaign to restore the film that, with 25 days left is at 239% fulfilled! Looking forward to seeing a Blu-Ray Manos release.Here’s a link to the website, specifically to where he talks about why he’s restoring it.
