The Hand

Jon Lansdale is a comic book artist whose life comes apart at the seams when his drawing hand is severed in a car accident. Slowly, painfully, he tries to adjust, but a terrifying evil creeps into his consciousness. One by one, the people who stand in his way begin to die.

The Great Michael Caine, what else can be said. He did not hold back while acting this part. He certainly made the film the psychological study that it is. One of two horror films Oliver Stone did. He uses some nice effects and occasional black and white footage. If you've only seen this on Saturday afternoon or late night television, please check out the DVD. The film was made before digital special effects and the hand looks great. Special features have a commentary by Oliver Stone. ~Mike
