The Reviews for Hands of a Stranger (1962) 720p


Too bad they weren't the hands of a Chiropractor!Reviewed bymichaeldukey2000Vote: 7/10

I remember seeing this late at night in the mid sixties on Chiller theater and it really creeped me out so I was anxious to check it out again when it showed up at the public domain bargain bin section. It doesn't really hold up that well but I can see a why it stuck in my mind in a few well shot and staged scenes.

Of the four filmed versions of The Hands Of Orlac (Four and a half if you count sections of Oliver Stones flop The Hand) this one comes in at dead last. It's not awful but it doesn't hold a candle to in inventiveness and weirdness of the Peter Lorre Version Mad Love and it doesn't have the silliness and fast pace of the Mel Ferrer ,Christopher Lee Version The Hands Of Orlac. As noted by others this doesn't credit orlac at all . Although there are marked difference between all of the versions it doesn't take a genius to figure where the story came from even though it ends differently.

I liked the opening and the scenes at the carnival and of course nurse Irish McCalla (Sheena, Queen Of The Jungle)isn't hard to look at. Juvenile actor Barry Gordon is sympathetic without being annoying like many child actors and Paul Lukather (who still works) has enough bravado to carry him through the long winded and stilted episodes of prose.

If you're a horror completist and don't expect much or if you're into B-movie noir you might give this a glance otherwise stick to the Karl Freund version Mad Love. You can't beat Peter Lorre on a tirade anyway.

Pretty Good Version of OrlacReviewed byRainey-DawnVote: 6/10

Hands of a Stranger is nothing more than another version of "Hands of Orlac" (1924/1960). It's a pretty good version of the story.

A murderer dies and concert pianist looses his hands in a car wreck around the same time frame. A policeman is still solving the case of the murderer and the pianist's surgeon has given him the murderers hands. Somehow the hands have a mind of their own and murders people while the pianist seems to black out or block out in a way as he takes on the personality of the murderer and the murders taking place from his new hands.

it's odd but still makes for a decent horror story.

6.5/10

He's got strong hands.Reviewed byBA_HarrisonVote: 4/10

The plot for this hokey B-movie will be no stranger to fans of 'classic' horror: it's another retelling of Maurice Renard's novel Les Mains d'Orlac (already filmed as The Hands of Orlac in 1924 and 1960, and as Mad Love in 1935), in which gifted surgeon Gil Harding (Paul Lukather) grafts a new pair of hands onto concert pianist Vernon Paris (James Noah), whose own hands have been mangled in an car crash. Even though Vernon's body accepts the new hands, his mind cannot, and he goes on a killing spree, wreaking vengeance on those responsible for his condition.

The over-familiarity of the material isn't a problem: what prevents this film from being a lot of fun is the script and the leaden direction, with countless scenes of verbose dialogue that really cause the film to drag. It's a long haul before the killing begins, writer/director Newton Arnold really laboring the point about Vernon's inability to come to terms with his predicament. That said, there are a couple of scenes that are rather entertaining: Irish McCalla proving to be highly combustible, and 10-year-old Skeet (Barry Gordon) making the mistake of asking Vernon to tickle the ivories for him ("Gee, mister, it must've been a long time 'cos you sure can't play now").
