Cut-and-paste schlock producer Jerry Warren patched together yet another of his patented Mexican imports with segments of a much older Chilean horror film to make this goofy supernatural thriller, padding it out with newly-shot footage featuring a slumming John Carradine. Essentially another crawling-hand creeper, the Mexican footage involves a cursed hand statue which possesses the souls of assorted innocent bystanders, while the Chilean portions have to do with a secret suicide society and are loosely based on R.L. Stephenson's The Suicide Club. The Chilean portions seem a bit more interesting and surreal, but the added footage (with Carradine) is just plain ridiculous; the end product is impossible to follow, wrapped up with an even less-comprehensible twist ending.
