Hotel Torgo

In April of 1966, an El Paso fertilizer salesman by the name of Hal Warren and his crew set out to make a popular commercial film. Armed with $16,000, no professional actors and no professional crew members, they made a film called `Manos: The Hands of Fate`. The film is now regarded as one of the worst films ever made by many critics and historians.
