Idle Hands

( 8 )

Overview

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 ...

Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Released hot on the heels of a long line of conventional Scream rip-offs, Idle Hands unleashed its own brand of silly, gore-soaked black comedy upon unsuspecting moviegoers in 1999, only to find its true audience later on video and DVD. Definitely a case of "it's better than you think," this horror comedy is high on gags and giant doses of marijuana. While social drug use is the norm in these types of flicks, weed is integral to many of the characters -- and humor -- of the film, as is the love for good old bloody slapstick. It's as if Evil Dead 2 took a massive bong hit and decided to make a teen love slasher story. By the end, there're stoned ghost zombies, young Jessica Alba, and plenty of decapitated-hand insanity to entertain any happy horror fiend. In the lead role, Devon Sawa shows off a fairly good knack for physical comedy and Seth Green provides some choice one-liners as one of the two dead stoner friends in the neighborhood (which in a sly wink, just so happens to be the same one from John Carpenter's Halloween).

    Horror vs. Comedy

    ''Idle Hands'' is the perfect Halloween flick for everyone! The theme song is very cool and very creepy. Although there are some parts in the film that are very funny, many scenes may scare you, or at least give you and uneasy feeling throughout most of the film. The movie is well thought of, and the acting is excellent! It shows how an average teen is forced to deal with supernatural forces that control his hand. If you watch this movie, you are guaranteed to have a great time. Just a warning, this movie gets kinda bloody.
