This film was as silly as I remembered, with actors attacking themselves with their own hands and suchlike. Sadly, it was also far pokier than I recalled. Since the T-Rex film was also a bit of a slog, we would have done far better to have scheduled this in the after dinner slot and used the more crowd-pleasing Class of 1999 in the middle. Ah, well.
The opening part of the film centers on a mine in which the demon hand is found. At one point there’s a rockfall and several workers are squished. At this juncture veteran attendee Matthew had the quip of the day when he noted the film’s theme was “in the key of a A Flat Miner.” There’s no crown attendant to this honor, but he did reap the spiteful envy of the rest of us.
