That reminds me of some movie about some comic book artist who loses his hand and it goes around killing people. I don't remember the name of the movie.
The Hand with Michael Caine?
I watched this when I was, dunno, around 10, and never saw it again or could remember the name. I already liked comics then so that's probably why it stayed in my mind.
Edit: Oh, read more about it, and apparently Barry Windsor-Smith did the comic art. I met him, well, 'meet' in sense that I went to Golden Apple once, and he just happened to be there signing stuff, and I was gawking at him. Lol!
Now I have to watch the movie again.

ha, yeah...Barry Windsor Smith...and the character was named Jon Lansdale...very close to Joe Lansdale. I remember, it was very gory, psychological horror and the maguffin was...did he really lose the hand? Or was he just acting out his subconscious. Other great phantom hand movies...IDLE HANDS(which I love) and BODY PARTS(with Jeff Fahey & Brad Dourif). Oh yeah, and EVIL DEAD 2:DEAD BY DAWN
Hmmmm. Hey JD, did you ever watch Santa Sangre?
Nope...ain't that a Jodorowsky flick???? I have the Holy Mountain trilogy on my to-do list as a promise to Pagliacci...
But I need to get my pot card before I attempt that.
Just brought it up because of the whole phantom hand thing, but you have to watch it to figure it out. :P
Lucifer Bids You Welcome to The Devil's Carnival | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
You have got to love technology. Back in the day for the devil to speak, you'd have to play records backwards and stuff. It was a real pain in the ass getting the speed right. Now, all he has to do is find two sickos loony enough to relay his message for him online. Those lovable sickos? Repo! The Genetic Opera's Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich.
The official Devil's Carnival website opened its doors a couple of days ago rockin' some tasty art and a short video preview of what was to come, and now Big Red himself has checked in with a message for the fans looking for some good old fashioned music filled craziness.
Looks like fun.
‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space’ ‘Requel’ Coming In 2012 | Geeks of Doom
It’s time to take another ride on a nightmare merry-go-round, and this time it will be in 3D.
The 1988 sci-fi/horror/comedy cult classic Killer Klowns from Outer Space is heading full tilt boogie for a 21st century reinvention with its original creators Stephen, Charles, and Edward Chiodo once again at the controls. Prepare for the coming of The Return of the Killer Klowns from Outer Space in 3D!
A new Killer Klowns movie has been in the works for years, but recently the project has started to gain some momentum. Grant Cramer, one of the stars of the original film said to have a vital role in The Return, gave an update on the film’s development back in June when he stated, “We have a script and a commitment for all our funding but the money can’t be spent until we have a distribution deal in place so that’s where we are – talking to distributors.” Most recently the Chiodo brothers were in attendance at Screamfest 2011 for a Killer Klowns Q & A panel and when questioned about the progress of the prospective sequel they stated that the new movie will be a strange hybrid of a sequel and a remake….a “requel” if you will.
Cramer also said that his role in the new Killer Klowns flick will “be the mentor to the two new young leads that have to try save the world from the Klowns when they return.”
