Jeff Lieberman (SQUIRM, BLUE SUNSHINE, JUST BEFORE DAWN) returns to horror filmmaking with this disturbing, well written/directed Halloween tale. Dougie, a 9-10 year old, is obsessed with a video game called SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER. In fact, that's the costume he has picked for his Halloween excursion this year. When he says he wants to go out and kill people his mother (Amanda Plummer) doesn't take him seriously because she thinks that it's all make-believe. His sister Jenna (Katheryn Winnick-an actress who really stands out in this movie) has returned from college to hang out with her little brother, although she's brought along her 'actor' boyfriend. This poses a slight problem because Dougie wants his sister all to himself.Once they start trick-or-treating the kid gets separated from his sister and observes a man in a Satan mask killing people in plain sight. He thinks it's just a great special effect, even when he sees him hanging an old woman, kicking and screaming, from her porch. After he's done with the murder Dougie approaches him and asks if he can be his helper, to which the masked man nods yes. So Dougie follows him around the neighborhood on his killing spree....From the get go this movie makes you uncomfortable because this kid is so earnest about killing-and we're not sure until later on if he views this as all make-believe or not. Also, the killer doesn't utter a word throughout the entire movie. When he's walking with Dougie you get the feeling that he could turn on the child at any moment. By this time the sister and the boyfriend are worried about him for wandering off and go looking for him separately. The boyfriend finds them first-and is knocked unconscious by the murderer. When Dougie brings him home to meet his family they presume that it's really the boyfriend under the mask and not this anonymous killer...This has become one of my new favorites in the 'Slasher' genre and perhaps one of the best Halloween type movies I've seen. Check it out-you'll be in for a treat.
