Hand of Death

John Agar wears the monster suit with a trenchcoat and hat. Resembling The Hideous Sun Demon but completely lacking that picture's personality, Hand of Death at least offers one of the more bizarre monster suits of the 1960s. Bill Warren rightly describes the suit as a cross between "the grossest possible caricature of a black man" and The Thing from the Fantastic Four comic books. As in The Incredible Melting Man, our doomed hero does little more than wander around and kill a few people by accident, but it is pretty amusing to see him stumbling across the LA streets and beaches before he finally dies. Direction is static and action is de-emphasized, but the score mixes 1950s theremins with 1960s lounge-style percussion, and later brass.
