HALLOWEEN 2016 Day 8: Torgo by KrisSmithDW HALLOWEEN 2016 Day 8: Torgo by KrisSmithDW
#Halloween2016 is here!  31 days of horror movie monsters!  My take on 31 of them of my choice, I'll be posting them in chronological order, come back each day to see who's next!
(I'm still very behind, but still working on catching up!)

DAY 8: This is really, really reaching. This is Torgo, from the legendarily awful 1966 piece of garbage horror movie "Manos: The Hands of Fate". You either have to be really into trash cinema or you watched Mystery Science Theatre 3000 to know who this guy is. I needed someone from the 1960's and I didn't want to do the Hammer monsters as I just did the Universal versions of them. Didn't want to repeat, so you're stuck with Torgo here.

Useless Trivia: According to behind the scenes info, he is SUPPOSED to be a Satyr. But the actor put the leg thingies on backwards and no one corrected him and so he just looks like he has giant, deformed knees.

Also, I didnt realize until l after I finished that he's actually wearing baggy overalls and not a long shirt over pants. Too late to correct it, sorry. Anyways, next up we move in to the 1970s.

At the time I was assembling the list (at first) I was trying to be really strict about it being monsters of some sort and I was thinking of Norman as just a very ill human.  But in retrospect I should have ignored that rule, he was monstrous enough to count, lol.  Probably try and add him into next years batch (which I will probably do in advance so I can actually release them day by day unlike this year, still trying to wrap those all up and post them at once)

Yeah, it's just so amazingly bad, even better watching it in a group, especially ones that haven't seen it before, their heads explode at how much of a mess it is, I love it :P

How about doing the undead Inspector Clay (played by Tor Johnson) from Ed Wood's "Plan 9 From Outer Space"?

Torgo: There is no way out of here. It will be dark soon. There is no way out of here.

Joel: It will be dark soon.

I remember the very first time I watched this. When Torgo first started walking and I saw his legs I was like ".....WWWHHHUUUTTT?"

LOL yeah I had no idea until i read on the internet that he was supposed to have had backwards goat legs.  Apparently wearing those things backwards hurt the actor very very badly.

Oh, poor man. Are there any pleasant behind the scenes stories about that movie. All I hear is depressing as heck.

Doesn't sound like there was much, it was a giant mess from the start and got nothing but worse by the end :(

As hilarious as the MST and RiffTrax episodes of this movie are, I wish this movie didn't exist if only for the sake of the actors.
