Early or mid-80s movie about a guy (maybe private eye?) who is invited to an island to investigate some crime. Around the end of the movie he finds a table with a hand on it that crushes something (a walnut?) that is put in it.

    Could you elaborate on what is Science Fiction or Fantasy about this movie? – Skooba Mar 13 at 19:47
  • @Skooba "Could you elaborate on what is Science Fiction or Fantasy about this movie?" a severed hand that crushes walnuts? or do we discount straight horror without any other serious scifi or fantasy elements? – Pelinore Mar 13 at 20:00

    @Pelinore It's not clear from the question whether the hand was severed from a human body or if it's just a wooden nutcracker carved into the shape of a hand, or yet something entirely different. If it is merely a nutcracker, then we are again left without an SF&F element in the question. – Todd Wilcox Mar 13 at 20:03
  • @Skooba Ah! you're right. – Pelinore Mar 13 at 20:06

    The only thing that suggests that is a comment from a user who is not the OP. There are several possibilities as to what the hand could be, yours is just one interpretation. Without confirmation we can't assume anything. So at face value it does not appear to be on-topic. – Skooba Mar 13 at 20:55
