Synopsis


Idle Hands
Teenage burnouts and post-modern slasher films are both raked over the satiric coals in the blood-soaked comedy Idle Hands. Anton (Devon Sawa) is a cheerful but exceedingly non-ambitious 17-year-old stoner who lives to stay buzzed, watch TV, and moon over Molly (Jessica Alba), the beautiful girl who lives next door. However, it turns out that the old cliché about idle hands being the devil's playground has a kernel of truth after all; there's a demonic beast living in his house that has already decapitated Anton's mom and dad (though it takes him a while to notice), and now the Dark Lord Himself has taken possession of Anton's right hand. Before he's entirely aware of what's happening, Anton's demon hand has killed his two best friends, Mick (Seth Green) and Pnub (Elden Henson), though both come back as zombies to keep Anton company. Can Randy (Jack Noseworthy), local metalhead and expert on all things Satanic, figure out what the Evil One has planned next for Anton's digits? Will traveling demon slayer Debi (Vivica A. Fox) vanquish the possessed in time? And most important, will Anton get to go to the big dance with Molly before his hand starts causing trouble again? Director Rodman Flender certainly knows the genres he parodies here; he cut his teeth in horror working for exploitation legend Roger Corman and directed the film Bloody Mutilators as well as episodes of the TV series Tales From The Crypt, while more recently he immersed himself in teenage culture directing episodes of the TV series Party of Five and Dawson's Creek. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    Silly Halloween Comedy 1999

    Posted
    Tigon

    A clueless slacker gets his hand possessed by a great evil in a silly murder spree, and tries to stop his hand. Forgotten to some, this movie holds ground for being a movie easy to lose yourself into, but it easily rips into horror territories of 'Evil Dead 2' and shadows old 'Tales from the Crypt' tv shows. If a zombie Seth Green doesn't sound funny to you, then at least watch it for Jessica Alba before she did movies 'Dark Angel' and 'Sin City'. Vivica A. Fox is also a hottie before she did 'Kill Bill.'

    I remember seeing this movie when I was younger and it was definitely funny to me. I enjoyed getting to see it again and I’m glad that I can add it to my Blu Ray horror collection. It’s got a decent storyline and some decent gore scenes in it as well. But all an all just a good horror comedy really!

    Obviously don't take the movie serious. It's a fun horror/comedy that tries to teach the viewer not to be lazy or idle hands are the devil. Devon sawa Jessica alba and Seth green are great characters. I enjoyed this movie for what it is

    This movie is VERY fun but I do wish Image carried over the previous special features for this film. I would have gave it a higher rating but as far as the film goes it's one of my favorite horror comedies.

    This is one of the best cult comedies of its time. I am glad it finally came out on Blu-Ray. I do own the DVD version of it. Great cast, great laughs, a touch of spooky-ness, great soundtrack.

    This movie is a lot of fun and I can easily recommend it to horror fans. The script moves quickly and is a real treat for Halloween. Too bad there are not any exta features.

    Grateful this finally made it to blu ray and at a rock bottom price. Contains no extras but high average bitrate of 27.85 Mbps, which means little to no noise.
