SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER COMING
As his nature-amok classic SQUIRM crawls toward its August 26 special-edition DVD release, writer/director Jeff Lieberman is currently preparing to shoot his latest horror project, SATAN?S LITTLE HELPER. ?The title kind of tells you a lot,? Lieberman informs Fango. ?A little boy who?s obsessed with the video game of the title is dressed as its lead character for Halloween. He finds a man in his area who fulfills his image of Satan and teams up with him, and together they wreak all kinds of havoc in this small town. If you can imagine what ?Satan?s little helper? can do, then you have the movie.
?It?s a real Jeff Lieberman horror film in every sense?sick humor, and it?s pretty damn scary,? he continues. ?There?s nothing supernatural in this movie; it?s all realistic. The kid is obsessed with the game, and in a way it?s like the game coming to life, but it?s not #really# coming to life?it?s about his inability to differentiate fantasy violence from real violence.?
Produced by Aimee Schoof and Isen Robbins, SATAN?S LITTLE HELPER rolls August 9 in the New York area. ?We?re going to shoot it on 24p hi-def video?it?s the best kind you can use,? Lieberman says. ?It?s being privately funded, with distribution to come later, but I?m pretty encouraged by the reaction I?m getting so far to the project.?
