One of Stone's first directorial efforts, this 1981 horror film stars Michael Caine as a comic artist who loses an appendage in a gruesome accident. But as the ads promise, "It lives. It crawls. And suddenly, it kills" including Stone himself, who appears in a cameo as a vagrant who sadly encounters The Hand. It fared better than his debut feature, 1974's "Seizure," a horror flick that starred cult icons Martine Beswick and Jonathan Frid ("Dark Shadows").
