The entire film was shot with a hand-held camera that could only record 32 seconds of film at a time. It was also shot without sound. All the lines were dubbed later by three men - Warren, Jennings and Neyman (John Reynolds was part of the trip to Dallas for the dubbing but it is unclear if he did his own voice) and a professional Dallas voice-over actress. Jackey Neyman Jones cried when she first heard her dubbed voice. See more »

Among the scenes edited from the film for its appearance on Mystery Science Theater 3000 in 1993 were a short scene of the family taking a wrong turn en route to valley lodge, more scenes of the family fleeing the cult, and a scene of the Master repeatedly smacking his defiant wife. See more »
I should note here that I sort of like bad movies. If it's amusing and campy, I'll cut it a break.
But Manos is different.
My god. What can I say about a movie so bad that it makes Plan 9 From Outer Space look like Casablanca? What can I say about a movie that has endless looped scenes of driving, the worst evil henchman in movie history, the lamest dialouge this side of my first grade hebrew school play, a movie that seems to have put together by people with utter contempt for the audience's intelligence? All I can say is this: it seems The Master's prayers to Satan have been answered. This movie is pure hell.
