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.

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.
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.Read more ›

I bought this movie on a whim. Really glad I did. It's not a typical 'Halloween' scarefest. It's not a slasher movie as such. It's not got a deep plot. It's just very well done. Read morePublished on 17 Nov. 2013 by Daviebhoy
