Horrifiying and Hilarious!
16 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

I rented "Idle Hands" and I have to say that it was a GREAT movie! It was kind of like "Scary Movie", but better! It was VERY funny!! Devon Sawa, Seth Green, Eldin Ratliff, and Jessica Alba were SPECTACULAR! This is a very funny/gorey movie. The acting is funny and great, and the directing is great! This is a smash-hit! I loved it! I highly recommend this film to horror fans and comedy fans for that matter! I give this film a perfect 10 out of 10!!!!!!! :)
