Audience Reviews for The Crawling Hand (Don't Cry Wolf) (The Creeping Hand)

    Before the Idle Hand, you have the Crawling Hand. An alien possessed hand from an Astronaut returned to Earth and began attacking nice folks. A young pal Paul stumbled upon the hand and took it home and the terror began. With a limited budget, it managed to get some decent actors like Rod Lauren. The story was silly and not a lot of scares to be found. 2 stars for effort.

    The title says it all, an astronaut's hand is on the loose killing people. This movie is bad, but very funny for the most part, so I kind of enjoyed it anyway.

    An astronaut dies in space, but his murderous hand return to earth to interfere with teenage love affairs and elude incompetent sheriff Alan Hale. A nice assault scene set to the novelty rock n' roll song "The Bird is the Word", but otherwise silly and disposable early 1960s sci-fi.
