That ‘Manos: The Hands of Fate’ Restoration is Happening

When Ben Solovey last checked in, it was with a busted print of Manos: The Hands of Fate and the high hopes that someone would give a damn about the infamous cult classic enough to help fund an effort to see it restored.

He asked for $10,000, and he got $25,000.

It turns out that a lot of people care about this movie enough to see it saved. His Kickstarter campaign has officially been kickstarted which means that the restoration will happen, and with it come a 2K to 35mm film-out preservation negative (meaning even more Manoses can be born), a commentary track featuring surviving cast members will be recorded, and a doc about the process to save the movie will be made and added to the DVDs and Blu-rays.

That’s right. There’s going to be a Blu-ray of Manos: The Hands of Fate. Let that massage in for a second and rejoice!
