Michael investigates, retrieving a flashlight and revolver from his car, and finds Peppy lying dead on the ground.
Michael buries the dog in the desert, and goes back to the house. Meanwhile, Torgo reveals his sudden attraction to Margaret and tells her that although The Master wants her to become his bride, he intends to keep her for himself. Torgo then spends the next few minutes trying to grope her shoulder.
Margaret threatens to tell Michael of Torgo's advances, but Torgo convinces her not to say anything by promising to protect her. Michael returns and is unable to start the car. Torgo tells them there is no phone in the house, so the family reluctantly decides to stay the night.
After another scene of Torgo peeping in on Margaret changing clothes, Michael and Margaret find Debbie is gone and go to look for her. Debbie returns, holding the leash of a big black dog, the same dog from the painting. Following Debbie, Michael and Margaret stumble upon The Master and his wives, sleeping around a blazing fire. The wives are dressed in diaphanous nightgowns, The Master in a robe with two red hands on it.
Margaret and Debbie run back to the house to get their things and escape. As Michael runs behind them, Torgo appears and uses a stick to knock him out and then ties him to a pole. The Master awakens and summons his wives, telling them that Michael must be sacrificed to the deity Manos, and Margaret and Debbie will become his new wives.
The other wives argue among each other about whether Debbie should become a wife or be sacrificed as well. This turns into a catfight, where the wives tumble around in the dirt. The Master returns and breaks up the fight, and decides to sacrifice Torgo and his first wife instead.
Meanwhile, Michael wakes up and unties himself, going back to the house to collect Margaret and Debbie. The family leaves the house and runs off into the desert to escape. The Master summons Torgo and hypnotizes him, ordering the wives to kill him. The wives "kill" him by running their hands over his face, The Master then severs and burns Torgo's left hand. Torgo runs off into the darkness, and The Master then sacrifices his first wife.
As Michael, Margaret and Debbie run through the desert, Margaret falls and says she can't go any farther. A rattlesnake appears in front of them and Michael shoots it, the noise attracting the attention of the deputies, who think the noises come from Mexico and leave it at that. Margaret convinces Michael to return to the house, as the cult would never think to look for them there. They go back and find The Master and his dog waiting for them. As The Master comes toward them, Michael fires several shots into The Master's face at point-blank range , but they have no effect.
The film then cuts to another pair of travelers, two women starting their vacation. They drive through a rainstorm, searching for a place to stay. After more driving they end up at The Master's house. An entranced Michael greets them, telling them "I take care of the place while The Master is away. Warren was very active in the theater scene in El Paso, Texas, and once appeared as a walk-on for the television series Route 66 , where he met screenwriter Stirling Silliphant. While chatting with Silliphant in a local coffee shop, Warren claimed that it was not difficult to make a horror film, and bet Silliphant that he could make an entire film on his own.
After placing the bet, Warren began the first outline of his script on a napkin, right inside the coffee shop. Filming mainly took place on the ranch of Colbert Coldwell, a lawyer who shared an office floor with Warren and who later became a judge in El Paso County. Most of the equipment used for production was rented, so Warren had to rush through as many shots as possible to complete filming before the deadline for returning the equipment.
The Hands of Fate. Warren's small crew became so bemused by his amateurishness and irascibility that they derisively called the film Mangos: The Cans of Fruit behind his back. During filming, Warren knew that presenting Diane Mahree as the Texas Beauty Queen would generate good publicity for his movie. He signed Mahree up for a regional West Texas beauty pageant that would lead to Miss Texas and then to the Miss America pageant, but he neglected to tell her about it until she was accepted as an entrant.
She went along with it, and soon found herself onstage as one of the finalists. Mahree would later assert that Warren urged her to remove her top for filming the window-peeping scene where Torgo observes her before declaring his love, but when she refused he quickly backpedaled by claiming the suggestion was a test. Warren contracted with a modeling agency to provide the actresses who would play the Master's wives, including Joyce Molleur.
Molleur broke her foot early in production, so to keep her in the film, Warren rewrote the script to include a young couple making out in a car on the side of the road who are seemingly completely incidental to the film's plot. To portray his character Torgo as a satyr , John Reynolds wore a metallic rigging under his trousers made out of wire coat hangers and foam by co-star Tom Neyman. The film's dialogue never mentions the fact that Torgo is a satyr, and none of the characters seem to notice anything unusual about his appearance.
Warren decided to shoot night-for-night scenes, because many of the cast and crew also held day jobs. Post-production efforts were minimal, despite promises made to Warren by crew members that any problems in the film would be fixed in later editing.
Warren had likely intended to include opening credits over these shots, but either forgot to add them or did not have the post-production budget to do so. John Reynolds, the actor who played Torgo, committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a shotgun on October 16, ,  a month before the film was to premiere. The film premiered at the Capri Theater in Warren's hometown of El Paso, Texas on November 15, as a benefit for the local cerebral palsy fund.
Warren could afford only a single limousine, however, and so the driver had to drop off one group, then drive around the block and pick up another. Following the premiere, Warren claimed that he felt Manos was the worst film ever made, even though he was proud of it,  and he suggested that it might make a passable comedy if it were to be re-dubbed.
Following its debut, the film had a brief theatrical run at the Capri Theater, as well as a few screenings at various drive-in theaters in West Texas and New Mexico towns, including Las Cruces. Although the film received poor reception, Warren did win his bet against Stirling Silliphant , proving that he was capable of creating an entire film on his own. The majority of the cast and crew never appeared in another film following Manos , though Mahree went onto a successful modelling career as Diane Adelson.
Following these few local screenings, Manos was almost entirely forgotten.
When Jackey Neyman attended the University of California, Berkeley , her friends unsuccessfully made an effort to track down a copy of the film. One of these suppliers was ultimately the one that offered the film to Comedy Central , after which it found its way into a box of films sent to Frank Conniff in , when he chose Manos as one of the films to be shown on Mystery Science Theater On January 30, , the film was featured on the fourth season finale of the Comedy Central series Mystery Science Theater , the premise of which involves a human protagonist Joel Hodgson and his two robot companions being held captive in outer space and forced by two mad scientists to watch bad movies.
The poor quality of Manos relative even to the usual fare of the series was immediately apparent within the episode; the "bots" Tom Servo and Crow used the long uneventful drive at the beginning of the film to sarcastically repeat its title numerous times, as there was yet to be any action to heckle. During the host segment breaks, Joel and the bots mocked the film's opening sequence, debated whether Torgo should be considered a monster, and impersonated "The Master" and his dog. At one point during the host segments, both bots broke down sobbing due to the poor quality of the movie, which was beyond even their attempts at making it interesting.
Both of the mad scientists, Dr.
Clayton Forrester and TV's Frank , even apologized for showing the film, which they admitted was abysmal and went beyond even their acceptable limits for torturing Joel and the bots.

Death Ray , and Samson vs. Selection of Manos for the show is credited to Frank Conniff , who also played TV's Frank; Conniff was generally in charge of pre-screening and pre-selecting films sent to them by Comedy Central , the show's network at the time, and Manos was a random tape that he had pulled from a recent batch they had been sent.
Factory released a special edition of the film which includes both the MST3K and uncut versions called Manos y Manos [ sic ]. Four comedy stage adaptations of the film have been made. The show featured a brief discussion of the film, and a condensed, second screening of the film. The video game World of Warcraft has a pet battle in the Warlords of Draenor expansion in which the player fights enemies named Manos, Hanos, and Fatos.
It worked for a while before they were caught, due to the character of Dr. Joan Watson having recognized Torgo's features from the film. The film's editor, James Sullivan, was the namesake of one of the characters in the episode. In , the original 16mm workprint of Manos: Solovey announced his intention to preserve and restore Manos for a Blu-ray release. The Hands of Fate is generally believed to be in the public domain because director Harold Warren failed to include a copyright symbol in the film; for films of this time, failure to include the copyright symbol disqualified the film for copyright within the United States, a situation that occurred with Night of the Living Dead.
Warren was an insurance and fertilizer salesman from El Paso, Texas , who produced the film as the result of a bet.

The film then cuts to another pair of travelers, two women starting their vacation. Retrieved 16 September Munch himself was to play the role of Torgo.
When news broke of Solovey's restoration, the son of Harold Warren, Joe Warren, started exploring the possibility that the film was in fact not in the public domain, seeking to avoid others from profiting from his father's work. Warren discovered in that the script had been copyrighted and registered in the Library of Congress , and he believes that this copyright also applies to the film.
