Critic Reviews for Hands of a Stranger

All Critics (2)

Body, mind, soul -- can one exist without the others? Is the 'self' determined by one or a combination of all three? These age-old questions are examined more directly in even B horrors, such as 'Hands of a Stranger,' than in most other entertainments.

Adequate chiller before it loses its tune.

Audience Reviews for Hands of a Stranger


It?s a story told several times before it?s release as ?The Hands of Orlac?, this version still holds it?s own pretty well. Granted, it does have a low budget but it manages to provide suspense and the cinematography is very effective at times. The acting is fair at best.

James Higgins
