    The Crawling Hand

    ★★½

    It's probably best to know in advance that the day is saved at the end of this clunky sci-fi horror effort by a group of feral cats, because the promise of a finalé like that might be the only thing that keeps you watching. That said, a lot of people really enjoy this type of vintage genre cinema, and I can imagine that The Crawling Hand would be a winner for them, because it is quite good fun: a bit…

    I tell thee she is: and therefore make her grave
    straight: the crowner hath sat on her, and finds it
    Christian burial.

    FIRST GRAVEDIGGER
    How can that be, unless she drowned herself in her
    own defence?

    SECOND GRAVEDIGGER
    It must be "se offendendo"; it cannot be else. For
    here lies the point: if I drown myself…
