Low-budget horror. Nine-year-old Douglas (Alexander Brickel) decides that this Halloween he's going to dress up as the main character from his favourite video game - Satan's Little Helper. While out trick-or-treating, Douglas meets a deranged masked killer who tricks him into being his own 'Little Helper', and leads the unwitting boy on a murderous rampage through town. Before long, Douglas begins to realise that all this murderous mayhem is for real, and that his own family is next on the killer's list.

Don't be misled by the DVD cover design. This isn't one of those "horrid" horror films, it is a bright, funny, charming and finely made horror film with all the classical horror story attributes of fun and art. It is colourful and atmospheric and unusually for these days all the characters are sympathetic, while the killer loses none of his ogre value in being funny. I've only seen this once, but I am certain this is a fine film that must become a Halloween classic to satisfy any level of horror film fan. It excels in Halloween imagery. Like other good horror films it has a satirical theme underlying it, in this case that of the wrong type of video games drawing children into violence and personal disaster. Wholesome in every sense I think, hence the five stars.

It's good to have director Jeff Lieberman back doing horror movies again. It's been a long time since "Just Before Dawn", and I for one am glad he's returned with this little gem of a horror movie that would certainly make the perfect halloween movie alongside such fan favourites as "Pumpkinhead" and the "Halloween" series.

The story has nine year old Douglas Wooly (played by the credible and not too annoying Alexander Bickel) obsessed with the video game "Satan's Little Helper". He plays it constantly and takes to dressing up as the title character of the game, much to his mothers chagrin. Thrown into the mix is Douglas' sister Jenna (played by the talented Katheryn Winnick, who recently lit up "Hellraiser: Hellworld") who is returning home for the halloween season. Unknown to Douglas, Jenna has bought home her new boyfriend which instantly annoys our pint-sized hero, and he takes to the streets in a fit of rage. Here the story changes from small town family bickering to full-blown horror, as Douglas meets the villain of the piece. A serial killer dressed in "devil" garb who is systematically killing everyone in sight. Douglas mistakenly believes that this killer is playing a game and asks if he can join him as "satan's little helper".

From here on in, the story balances dark violence and humour with a mean streak a mile wide. Its a difficult thing to do, but director Lieberman manages to pull it off. Sure, the movie looks a little cheap and the camera work could have been a little better, but the general feel of the movie and the dark concept keep the minor niggles at bay.

Everyone in the cast does a sterling job and the movie is well directed for what is essentially a direct-to-video production.

I would have preferred it without the cat scene, so three stars instead of four for that alone. Otherwise a very effective movie for Halloween, and even though I prefer them without humour, with this one, the humour worked and really was funny. Mainly because of the kid, (Satan's little helper) a nerdy, geeky little kid, extremely credulous, obsessed with the computer game entitled "Satan's Little Helper", to the extent that he totally confused fantasy with reality. He was hilarious in believing that firstly, 'Satan' (killer in groovy mask) really was: Satan, and secondly, believing that killer in Jesus mask really was: God, and thirdly, believing that killer in cop mask and outfit really was a cop, in spite of all evidence to the contrary. His conversations with 'Satan', 'God', and then the cop, were the most effectively humorous points in the movie. "Are you Satan?" "Are you God?" And all they had to do was nod, without ever speaking a word. Classic!
I loved the Satan mask and outfit, so cool, if only people dressed up like that for Halloween everywhere and wandered around in the shops getting provisions and carrying a shopping basket, so funny! To be honest, I'd have preferred a Halloween movie utilising all the effective costumes and sets that this movie had, but without the humour, but at least here, it worked. Not the most wonderful thing I've ever seen, but not bad either. It's certainly a great movie for Halloween.

I was also surprised at how entertaining this movie was. It was weird, freaky, and funny. I enjoyed watching 'Satan' with his weird mask as he lured an inoccent boy into his web of evil and killing. Personally I didn't care about any of the family members so I didn't care if any of them died. My favourite scene was the one where Satan pulls the dad's guts out infront of the little boy because that was just hilarious. Its a shame that they didn't really close off the ending but I was still satisfied.

This is a little gem of a horror film. Very funny and very interesting.
I think the psychopath hiding behind a mask and not speaking all through really works. Didn't get bored at any stage and throughly enjoyed it. I can't really think of any horror film quite like it off hand. Very uniquely done and its funny rather than daft, which is a difficult art to perfect in such comedy horrors. Its tragic story line is overshadowed by the funny tone that runs through the whole film. Its rather like a clown having a nasty fall. Everyone laughs even though the Clown might have really hurt himself. Its that sort of film.
