Description

Storyline

The Hand  Jon Lansdale is a comic book artist who loses his right hand in a car accident. The hand was not found at the scene of the accident, but it soon returns by itself to follow Jon around, and murder those who anger him.

A great blast to watch

The Hand  Not a lot of people feel this, but the way films are made have changed since the beginning of the millennium. From blocking, cinematography, film stock, writing, pacing, everything is different. So it’s really refreshing to watch michael caine do his thing in this oliver stone horrorfest. What might have been over the top campy shtick in the 80s becomes infinitely watchable.

I agree about the similarities to the shining but doesn’t quite match up. The comments about the burning car i don’t agree with. It’s inserted to show michael caine getting unhinged the more he suspects he’s got a pet killer hand out there.

A great movie to check out. Really fun.

It’s the ending that makes this movie.

I remember watching this movie soon after it came out and the special effects were not bad for the time period that it came out despite what people say. Remember, Star Wars had only been out a few years by this time. As far as the movie goes, Caine does quite well with his part and the plot is believable in the way Freddie Kruger is believable. If you’ve seen many “creature” movies, then this one could seem to be predictable and thus lose some of it’s “boo” effect. Wait until the end and watch closely. If you’ve seen this movie you should know what I mean, if not then pay close attention. After seeing that final scene you suddenly realize that maybe all wasn’t as it seemed. Go back through this movie and keep in mind that last scene. Suddenly the whole movie transcends the Freddie Kruger believable and becomes in fact quite plausible. It’s like watching Star Wars Episode 4 after just watching Episode 3, it all takes on new meaning!
