YOU’LL LAUGH ‘TIL YOU DIE!
Nine-year-old Douglas Whooly (Alexander Brickel, Palindromes) is obsessed with the handheld video game “Satan’s Little Helper,” and annoyed that the attention of his big sister Jenna (Katheryn Winnick, TV’s “Wikings” and “Big Sky”) is being distracted by her new boyfriend Alex (Stephen Graham). These two concerns collide on Halloween, when Douglas witnesses a serial killer in a devil mask (Joshua Annex) posing his victims like outdoor All Hallow’s Eve displays. Not comprehending how real the carnage is, Douglas becomes this Satan’s little helper–and that’s very bad news for Alex, for Douglas and Jenna’s mom Merrill (Amanda Plummer, Pulp Fiction, Netflix’s “Ratched”), and ultimately for their entire town. A different kind of Halloween horror film, Satan’s Little Helper combines grisly killings with a mile-wide streak of savage humor. Written and directed by cult favorite Jeff Lieberman (Squirm, Blue Sunshine, Just Before Dawn), it satirizes the way video games can seize hold of young minds, and is driven by the inability of Douglas (and others) to distinguish the Satan Man’s nasty crimes from All Hallow’s prankery. Featuring one of Plummer’s most eccentric performances, Satan’s Little Helper has built a cult following on video and now makes its UNCUT high-definition Blu-ray debut, carrying a bagful of supplementary treats!
