Movie propagandaThe devil will find work for idle hands to do... so what happens when he goes on the prowl for a partner in crime and ends up with an utterly clueless 17 year-old slacker? The result is a lot more moronics than demonics in the gruesome comedy-horror Idle hands.
Anton Tobias (Devon Sawa) wakes up Halloween morning to discover after watching some TV and perusing the contents of the fridge, oblivious to the pool of blood on the floor that his parents have been turned into a couple of headless Halloween decorations. After hanging out with his equally irresponsible friends Mick (Seth Green) and Pnub (Elden Henson), Anton discovers that his right hand has a very bloodthirsty mind of its own, and it's hell-bent on wreaking deadly havoc with or without him.
Will an innocent soul suffer eternal damnation? It just might in Idle hands when the forces of good and evil face off in a showdown full of diabolical comedy and bloodcurdling horror.
Also starring Vivica A Fox.
