The Manitou (1978)

Tony Curtis And A Dwarf Battle For Cosmic Supremacy

Recently resurrected on subscription service SHUDDER, 1978’s The Manitou is a weirdly entertaining tale of a magical dwarf who grows out of Susan Strasberg’s back bent on revenge! A slow starter, this low budget rendition of an evil Native American shaman’s return has Tony Curtis, Exploding scientists, terrible sets, even worse effects and one of the all-time greatest “what the fuck did I just watch” endings of made-for-tv moviedom to reward true trash connoisseurs who can stick with it. Definitely one that’s more entertaining under the influence of certain sacred herbs.
