So you may remember MANOS: The Hands of Fate from a review I did earlier, which is one of the worst films of all time, well some crazy people made a puppet play out of it called MANOS: The Hands of Felt. They are going to sell DVDs of the play, but since I backed it on Kickstarter, I got to download a copy earlier. I mean how could I not, puppets and bad cinema mixed together and put on stage? SHUTUP AND TAKE MY MONEY!
So the plot of the play is mostly the some as the movie, with the exception that the story follows the people making the movie who get lost and confused, so they are just kind of making up the movie as they go along while crazy stuff is happening. Oh yeah, they are also all puppets, so that is a little different. I am pretty sure that you should at least familiarize yourself with MANOS: The Hands of Fate before you watch this performance.
Granted this movie/play is for a select group of people that enjoy bad films and adore puppets, so pretty much me and all the people that backed the play on Kickstarter. That would mean there at least 768 of us. I am glad that their funding campaign was successful because even when it wasn’t making me laugh, it was making me smile. You can tell they love crappy movies as much as I do, and it was a lot of fun to watch.
If you love puppets and bad movies you should look out for the DVD when it is released, so you can smile along with me. I hope that the people of the puppet troupe Vox Fabuli continue to make funny puppet stuff, just so I know that there are people like me out in the world.
