The Master is a villain from the 1966 movie Manos: The Hands of Fate. The leader of an undead cult that worships the god Manos, the Master likes to dress in large black robes with red hands on them. The Master's main servant is Torgo, who lives at the Valley Lodge and watches the place while the Master is away. According to Torgo the Master is not dead the way we know it, but is with his people always.
Sometime before 1966, the Master began worshiping Manos. He proceeded to kidnap women with the help of his satyr like assistant Torgo and making them his wives. Never satisfied with just one wife, the Master continued collecting women to act as his wives.
In the mid 60's Michael, his wife Margaret, and their daughter Debbie stumbled upon the Master and his cult after Michael got the family lost with his expert sense of direction and his refusal to stop for directions. The family was unable to escape, and the Master took the opportunity to rid himself of Torgo and replace him with Michael. Additionally, the Master also inducted Margaret as a wife, and in a truly perverted move, did the same with Debbie.
