Product Description

Douglas è morbosamente affascinato da un videogioco che narra le atroci gesta di un maniaco omicida. Eccitato dall'arrivo di Halloween si appresta a festeggiarlo travestendosi da "piccolo aiutante di Satana". Parte poi per il suo giro di dolcetti o scherzetti, in cerca del Diavolo da assistere. E quando il caso lo porrà davvero di fronte ad uno psicopatico in carne e ossa, la sua mente perderà ogni contatto con la realtà.

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.

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.

firstly i cannot understand why people are saying "80's cheese fest" when for starters this movie came out in 2004 LOL. well anyway luckily i only paid £1 for it but this movie is very very very low budget............. the killers costume is terrible even though i did laugh now and again..............the kill scenes are very very basic and bland the blood looks to me like its ketchup but other than that it is actually kind of funny because you end up sitting back and just laughing at it. i mean im very surprised jeff lieberman was behind this as hes done two very decent films being just before dawn and blue sunshine. its good for a few cheap laughs ill give it that but anything else its just plain awful low budget but in its defense i have seen my fair share of low budget films and this wasent one of the worst so that's saying something. if you like low budget fun check it out!!!!!

The Good......
1) Unexplained open ending
2 ) Original Premise
3 ) Some dark humour
4) The cat scene
5) Katheryn Winnick's rack

The Bad......
1) The acting
2) The painful dialogue
3) Punchable child actor
4) Pacing problems
5) Uninspired direction.

This film should have been cut by 10 minutes. Although the premise is original, the plot twists aren't .
If you're like me, you are probably going to find this quite a boring experience although you'll be jolted out of your comatose state by one or two shocks.
Shame the kid didn't die early.

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 remember watching this film at like 10 years old and I didn't like it yet it's always stuck in my head so 10 years later I buy it. Love it in a sick way. Moral of the story not everything in pretend.
