Mystery Science Theater 3000 - In-Store 2-DVD Set of 'Manos: Hands Of Fate Special Edition'

Mid-September release includes the original film, the MST3K episode, plus new extras

Posted by David Lambert
    How do you make fun of a bloody car wreck? By turning it into the most popular MST3K episode of all time! Laugh along as Joel and his botbuddies suffer through "Manos" The Hands of Fate. It's a laborious piece of flotsam starting Torgo, a demented caretaker who, as Joel puts it, "looks like a chainsaw sculpture." The only saving grace, and probable reason this bore was produced, is the scene with a group of nubile nymphs wrestling around in their nighties. Well, that and the fact that it serves as fodder for the MST3K's rapacious wit.
Previously released on DVD twice by Rhino (as a 2001 stand-alone disc, and in 2004 as part of "The Essentials" set) but long out-of-print, Shout! Factory has announced that they are bringing to participating stores this year a new 2-DVD release of Mystery Science Theater 3000 - Manos: Hands Of Fate Special Edition. Available on September 13th for $24.97, you'll get the classic MST3K episode, AND the original Manos feature film as well. Plus retailers have been informed of all sorts of bonus material, naturally, including a brand-new making-of documentary: "Interviews with Joel, Frank, Mary Jo and Trace; MST3K short 'Hired!' Parts 1 and 2 (together for the first time), Mystery Science Theater Hour wraps, brand-new 'Jam Handy and You!' featurette, 'Hotel Torgo' (30-min. making-of doc.)." You can pre-order this from Amazon at a discount right now, and they also show this amazing new package art:
