* SpiritualSuccessor: ''Film/Troll2'' has a remarkably similar mix of [[{{Narm}} Narmy]] low-budget horror and incompetent filmmaking. Not only that, both films have an early scene where a family sings "Row, Row, Row Your Boat" while driving out to the country.

* NiceToTheWaiter: Averted. Mike is demanding with his family, but he seems to care for them. However, he's absolutely horrible to Torgo. It's really hard to feel bad for Mike when Torgo knocks him out and ties him to a tree.

Added DiffLines:

* CampbellCountry: Warren's script seems to be an attempt at a vaguely Lovecraftian story set in the desert outside El Paso, but, like his filmmaking and acting, the execution was a bit inept.

* StillWearingTheOldColors: Torgo's costume is supposed to look like a Confederate uniform to suggest this trope, but it doesn't work (even in the restored version).

* InformedAttribute: People who knew them insist that John Reynolds (Torgo) and Tom Neyman (The Master) were very talented actors. This isn't evident in the movie.

In 2011, film buff Ben Solovey bought a host of old film reels hailing from distributor Emerson Films via an [=eBay=] auction, partially because he saw ''Manos'' listed on the collection of reels. That ''Manos''' reel ended up surprising Solovey when he received it, because [[http://manosinhd.com he'd actually bought the film's original 16mm workprint]]. Solovey established a {{Kickstarter}} [[http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1325482813/manos-the-restoration campaign]] to help fund a complete [[UsefulNotes/BluRay high-definition]] restoration of the movie from the pristine-condition workprint; by the campaign's end, Solovey raised almost 400% more than the initial goal. A [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uae58589aec side-by-side comparison]] of the restoration illustrates the dramatic difference between the restored version helmed by Solovey and the currently-available DVD release (created from third-generation sources and degraded beyond repair). A [[http://www.bleedingcool.com/2015/10/31/manos-the-hands-of-fate-inspires-devotion-copyright-battle/ legal battle between Solovey and Harold's son Joe]] held up the process, in which it was revealed that Hal [[EpicFail never secured the copyright to the film itself]]. Ultimately, the restored film was released on October 15, 2015 [[http://synapse-films.com/synapse-films/manos-the-hands-of-fate-special-edition-blu-ray/ thanks to Synapse films]].
