According to MST3KInfo, a gentleman named Rupert Munch Jr. is making a sequel to Manos: The Hands of Fate, made infamous as one of the worst movies ever made by its inclusion on Mystery Science Theater 3000. Munch has convinced the woman who played Debbie — the little girl who gets taken in by Manos’ kindly satanic coven of wives at the end of the flick — and who was in real life the daughter of the dude who played Manos — has given her blessing to the project, and will star in it. I assume that’s the “wife” in the video that — well, I think you’ll spot her.
As per the video announcement above, it appears it will be a bit of a
comedy and a loving tribute to the original more than a proper seuel,
which is probably for the best. You can’t improve upon perfection, and Manos is truly film that is perfect in its awfulness.

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
