Satan’s Little Helper (2004)
Director: Jeff Lieberman
Main Stars: Alexander Brickel, Katheryn Winnick, Stephen Graham, Amanda Plummer
Storyline: A young boy unknowingly helps a serial killer kill on Halloween.
Review (Spoils): We have the strange loser like kid Dougie Whooly (Alexander Brickel ) who is addicted to a video game called “Satan’s Little Helper” he lives and breathes this very cheesy game in which you kill and hurt people for points. He is so addicted to it that he wants to be the little devil character for Halloween. His mom (Amanda Plummer) goes along with it as she is a crazy for Halloween also and pretty much gives Dougie anything he wants. Just by coincidence a serial killer is in town and dressed as Satan and Dougie runs into him and thinks everything is just like the game. This after he takes a jealous fit over his sister Jenna’s (Katheryn Winnick) new boyfriend Alex (Stephen Graham). Dougie brings Satan home and the whole family think it is Alex dressed up and they find out after many deaths that it is not.
The film itself flows pretty good and the storyline is unique and it works well for a Halloween film. Sure Alexander Brickel and Amanda Plummer characters can drive you nuts and really can a kid be that stupid? But overall the movie is not bad. Plus we have the very hot Katheryn Winnick throughout the film and her acting is great (thinking of the tavern girl outfit right now….hmmmm). They could have picked someone with better acting skills than Stephen Graham as he just was not believable but it did not ruin the film.
Rating: Overall I enjoyed this film and have seen it a few times now. Yes it comes down to really can a kid be that stupid but for the overall gore and blood this one does well. Plus did I mention that Katheryn Winnick is smoking hot?
