This film is destined to be the fine little cult classic that it is...
Satan's little Halloween film of the decade....
If your an admirer of "Blue Sunshine" and "Squirm" from the 70's
I really don't see how you can't like this film...
well worth annual viewing for the next 20 years or so...
call me crazee... but I have the feeling I'm not all alone in my twisted veiws.
pass it on to your kids... fun filled.... a family excursion for sadists...
John Carpenter with a sense of humor....
I am a bigger Jeff Lieberman fan now then ever before!
also enjoyed commentary and making of extras....
Another recent movie I enjoyed and recomend..... "Trick R Treat"
which would make a great double feature along with this little Gem!!!
if anyone has that DVD or Blu-ray for trade let me know...
I'd gladly double those credits... lets talk!
Happy Halloween all year long!!! Russ.

"I rented this solely, and I mean solely, based on the cover and I'm glad I did. This movie was great! I originally thought it was going to be about a killer elf or something, but I was much cooler than that.
Douglas is a dweeby little kid who's obsessed with a video game called "Satan's Little Helper", so on Halloween afternoon when his oh so sexy sister (this girl is smokin' hot!) brings home her new boyfriend from college Douglas gets pissed and goes out looking for Satan and finds him! And brings him home.
I'm not going to give away anymore, but I really enjoyed this movie. It's not a horror movie, so don't expect THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE or anything, it's more of a very dark black comedy with lots of violence and killin'.

"Don't be misled by the DVD cover design. This isn't one of those "horrid" horror films, it is a bright, funny, charming and finely made horror film with all the classical horror story attributes of fun and art. It is colourful and atmospheric and unusually for these days all the characters are sympathetic, while the killer loses none of his ogre value in being funny. I've only seen this once, but I am certain this is a fine film that must become a Halloween classic. It excels in Halloween imagery. Like other good horror films it has a satirical theme underlying it, in this case that of the wrong type of video games drawing children into violence and personal disaster. Wholesome in every sense I think, hence the five stars."
SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER; Great Movie with a twist!!!!!!

"This movie was nothing like i've experienced before.
It sure has guts and bloods that would definately make you turn around, expecially when in one scene, Satan mauls out a poor pussy cat & writes BLOOD on the wall with it's own flesh.
It starts off with young Douglas playing with his video game entitled "SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER", while his mum and him are travelling through a small community town.
Once he spots Satan murdering the neighbourhood while trick or treating, 9 year old Dougie starts investigating every move until he catches him. The two then bond as friends and embark on a mission to kill to earn points from his game. But Satan doesn't speak so he's a bit like another Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers mass murderer out for the kill.
Believe me, this horror will keep you on the edge of your seat from the start to finish.
The ending has a bit of a twist too. Or shall i say, is there really a ending???????
What an incredibly fun movie!

"I LOVED this movie. It was so much fun. I thought it was going to be a horror movie but it was more of a black comedy which moved along pretty fast. The direction is excellent and the acting is good for low budget. I actually enjoyed this movie more than I thought I would. I rented it but am going to buy it now. It's not huge on plot or anything but it's extremely entertaining. 5/5"
Satan's Little Helper

"Now this is Indie Horror done right. SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER is smart, original, and extremely dark. A young boy obsessed with his video game Satan's Little Helper enlists himself to help a masked serial killer he mistakes for the horned demon as the two commit atrocious crimes that the naive kid mistakes as being part of the game. Many will have to forgive the often goofy acting from each of the side players, but it is the costumed character of Satan that really sells this flick. With a sinister latex grin and exaggerated physical humor, this speechless villain adds a unique mixture of comedy and terror throughout the night's events. It is presumed that the character beneath the mask is human, however the film does leave enough intrigue as to keep the audience guessing until the end. In a favorite scene, Dougie jumps in the front of a shopping cart as Satan runs down a pregnant woman, a baby carriage, and a blind man while Dougie cheers and tallies the points. The one area where the film could use the most work is in its overly long ending, which could easily have been reeled back 10-15m to become more effective and concise. Director Jeff Lieberman has done a lot with a very little here, and instills the darkest humor possible in what I consider to be an instant Halloween classic. The film will not appeal to all genre fans, but for those of you that share my taste for Indie Horror, it is a refreshing surprise and well worth a view!
