Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Anton would like very much to go about his daily routine of smoking weed, watching TV, and lusting after the girl across the street. The only thing stopping him is his demon-possessed right hand which seems determined to kill anyone it encounters. After dropping his parents and his best friends, the hand sets its sights on Molly, the punk rock girl of Anton's affection. Luckily for him, Pnub and Mick (his recently deceased buds) are back from below ground to help the problem get solved. Only they better get cracking because the hand is out for more than just a killing spree. If it gets its fingers on Molly before midnight on prom night, her soul is hell-bound.
The touching story of a boy and his right hand.

While Anton is vomiting in the bushes when Pnub and Mick show up, Molly (Jessica Alba) can be seen far in the background, on her balcony, playing a bass guitar. This is a remnant from a deleted scene.
Both Eldon Henson's and Seth Green's character names (Mick & Pnub) are based on the SNL skit where Eddie Murphy played an illiterate character named Buckwheat, who sang popular (at the time) songs in a way that he wasn't understood half the time. In one skit, he sings the song "Lookin' for Love" and sings "Wookin' pa nub in a da wong paces..." It can be heard on the commentary that both Mick's and Pnub's names are based on this skit. (If you say "Mick & Pnub" quickly it almost sounds exactly alike.)
The dish soap that Anton (Devon Sawa) squirts into his mouth after attempting to smoke Nutmeg and Oregano is real dish soap. Sawa came up with the gag on the spot.
Filmed in the same neighborhood as Halloween (1978).
