Plot Summary:
"A horror-comedy in the vein of 'Ginger Snaps', 'Satan's Little Helper' tells the story of a quiet suburban town overtaken by evil. Director Jeff Lieberman, long a cult director of the underground horror circuit, takes the chair in the production of this quirky tale of nine-year old boy Douglas (Alexander Brickel), who runs into a serial killer while trick or treating. Unfortunately for Douglas, the serial killer is dressed up like a 'character' in his favourite video game, 'Satan's Little Helper'. Douglas will do anything to help his virtual hero, and soon finds himself acting as an assistant in the brutal murder of his own family! A film that will induce grimaces and laughs in equal measure, 'Satan's Little Helper' features a memorable performance from the great British actress Amanda Plummer ('The Fisher King')."

Jeff Lieberman directs this wickedly graphic tale about a young boy who inadvertently becomes a pawn in a murderous rampage on Halloween night.

The film begins as Dougie's sister comes home from college to take him trick or treating. When Dougie and his nutty mum Merrill turn up to meet her, they discover she has her new boyfriend in tow, which upsets Dougie no end.

This prompts Dougie to go looking for his video game hero and when he stumbles upon a murderer in a cool costume, he sets out to find some victims for him, starting with his sister's boyfriend.

Watching the film, I noticed that it was similar in tone and style to Idle Hands. The cast all do good jobs, it's bright, flamboyant and colourful, it has a great aesthetic and it's so un-PC you won't believe it....unless you're a fan of Family Guy.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Jeff Lieberman makes good use of new technology and manages to create a fresh and somewhat original twisted tale perfect for Halloween night.
