There are hands living in my toilet! A man opens his eyes in the morning and goes to the bathroom, where he’s faced with a weird scenario of a hand shooting up out of the toilet. Thinking he must have drunk too much the night before, he rubs his eyes and looks down at the toilet again, but the hand is still there. His wife, their apartment security guard and paramedics arrivein the bathroom one after the other, but rather than revealing its identity, they are attacked by the strange hand in the toilet.
Do not mock the hand; it may never come out of the toilet, but you can never be free of its grip, and the attacks are surprisingly terrifying. With the movie beginning and ending with the titular ‘hand’, there is tension built in the restricted space of the bathroom. Together with the extraordinary setting, the special effects and the actors’ passionate performances evoking humor and fear, it is also worth noting this formal attempt to expand the short form-style series, which has been tried in various guises leading up to the theatrical version.
