31 Days of Halloween - Day 2 "Idle Hands"

Join us all October long as we spotlight different horror movies every day with a brand new video!

The horror/comedy genre is a tricky beast to tame. If you go too comedic, then there's never any terrifying moments, and if you go too dark, the comedic moments feel out of place. There's a certain balance that must be struck and I'd say "Idle Hands" does a commendable job with it. It's one of those movies that you can watch at a party because it's just so much fun but also has its moments of terror.

The main thing I remember about this movie from my youth was Jessica Alba in an angel costume. Given the massive crush I had on her due to Dark Angel, I was all about it. Now looking back on it, the film is filled to the brim with people who have since made a name for themselves: Devon Sawa, Seth Green, Elden Henson, and Fred Willard.

The most commendable aspect of the film is how much of a threat they make a possessed hand. It's an absolute force of nature and adds gravitas to the proceedings. A killer who's actually a force of nature? Shocking.

So check out this film immediately. You won't regret it.

Whether it's writing about a movie, TV show, album, book, wrestling event, experience, or life lesson. I don't plan on making this a personal blog where I treat it like a diary. This is just supposed to represent… Me.
