Product Description

Amazon.ca

This one is way, way up there on the silly meter--and it has the distinction of being the second film directed by Oliver Stone. This bizarre and unintentionally funny horror film deals with a cartoonist (Michael Caine) who has drinking and marital problems; both are exacerbated when he loses his hand in a car crash. But that seems like child's play compared to his real troubles: the severed hand, which was never recovered, takes on a life of its own and starts killing everyone who makes Caine angry. The hand lacks the dexterity of the Addams family's Thing but, otherwise, it's just as funny. --Marshall Fine

Format: DVD
this movie kinda reminded me of the classic short story The Monkey's
Paw,only it isn't as good.it's too long for one thing,and too slow.the
concept is interesting,but to me the execution of it goes wrong
somewhere.i did find it interesting that Oliver Stone wrote the
screenplay and directed the movie.there is nothing political about the
movie.this doesn't mean the movie is good of course,but it is an
interesting aside,nonetheless.Michael Caine is the lead,and and does an
OK job,but the material is not really compelling or even mildly
interesting.i watched it for awhile and got bored,so i started talking
on the phone with a friend while i continued watching
halfheartedly.having said all that,i don't think it is an awful
movie,it's just not very interesting.by the way,this movie is part of
the Twisted terror Collection,and is also contained in the box
set(along with five other titles)of the same name.anyway,my vote for
the hand is a 2/5

Oliver Stone's second movie as a director...and oh boy what a silly film this is as Michael Caine plays a cartoonist whose life is destroyed when he loses his hand in a car accident, and then the hand is guided by his thoughts to hunt down and destroy those he hates. Wither it's his ex-wife, or his former boss, or the new comic artists he's supposed to teach at school. The ending does not resolve things. Caine's talents as an actor are wasted, there is no screen play, there is no point to this movie. Better to just forget it and watch one of Michael Caine's other and more better movies.

Enjoyed this movie very much. Background music is riveting. The hand is the silly part of the movie but the acting is great. Caines wife is perfect as the adulterous vixen who really leads Caine down the scary path he takes. I now own 4 movies starring Michael Caine and have to say he can out act any of the Harrison Fords or Brad Pitts of the world. His role here reminds me of his starring role in Deathtrap, a true psycopath

This was definately one of the most boring and uninteresting movies I have ever seen. It was not scary in the least bit and the acting was terrible. And what is with that guys hair??? I give it two thumbs way down!!

Even if its not the most original idea, i loved the movie. Great acting from Michael Caine (as usual) as a man who has everything and after a tragic accident lose all control of reality.
Love intelligent movie but if you are a gore freak avoid this great movie
