The Hand ★★★ 1981 (R)

A gifted cartoonist's hand is severed in a car accident. Soon, the hand is on the loose with a mind of its own, seeking out victims with an obsessive vengeance. Stone's sophomore directorial outing is a unique, surreal psycho-horror pastiche consistently underrated by most critics. 105m/C VHS . GB Michael Caine, Andrea Marcovicci, Annie McEnroe, Bruce McGill, Viveca Lindfors; Cameos: Oliver Stone; D: Oliver Stone; W: Oliver Stone; C: King Baggot; M: James Horner.
