* SpringtimeForHitler: Harold P. Warren saw ''Manos'' as a cheap, sensationalistic B-movie that could earn him enough money and notoriety to make more reputable films. And like Max Bialystock, he sold far more than 100% of the shares to investors.

* 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.

** One character even appears to ''contradict herself'' with this redundancy! The following quote is, more or less, one sentence thanks to the actress' poor attempt at dubbing two separate voices.

* CoversAlwaysLie: The poster claims that the cult of "weird, horrible people" (which seems to consist of only the Master and Torgo) gathers beautiful woman and then defaces them with a burning hand. While they do gather beautiful women, they don't deface them with anything. They just make them stand out in the desert against pillars while wearing nightgowns.
