Storyline

During Halloween, theater student Jenna Whooly returns to Bell Island to spend the holiday with her family and her boyfriend Alex Martin, a classmate of hers who was also raised on the island. Her younger brother Douglas "Dougie" Whooly is very attached to Jenna and is fascinated with the video game "Satan's Little Helper," and he becomes jealous with the presence of Alex. He leaves home wearing his costume of Satan's little helper, seeking Satan himself on the streets so he can ask him to kill Alex. Dougie meets a serial killer who, coincidently, is wearing a costume of Satan and decides to help him. He brings the insane murderer home, and Jenna and her mother Merrill Whooly believe that the masked killer is Alex acting like Satan to please Dougie. Later, the boy walks with the maniac along the streets, helping him to terrorize the locals. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

How stupid can that kid be?
30 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Far-fetched but amusing, this is about a little kid who is obsessed with a video game called "Satan's Little Helper"- a stereotypical ultra-violent, mindless video game, the sole object of which is to kill people. On Halloween the kid crosses paths with a killer he believes to be the Satan from the video game, because of the costume he's wearing. They go on a killing spree all over town while the kid merely thinks its all party of his video game. He hates his older sister's new boyfriend, so he arranges an ambush with the boyfriend and Satan, not realising that the guy in the Satan costume is really going to try to kill him.

The killer then takes the place of the boyfriend and goes back to the girl's house to kill her and her mother. The little kid, still thinking it's all part of the video game, cooperates fully, and even helps the killer.

Better than can be expected, but the kid is just unbelievably stupid, not naive, but outright STUPID, and his Halloween costume is almost scarier than the Satan costume! Toward the end of the film when the sister and boyfriend crash a costume party is borderline clever and silly. The sister's boyfriend is cruelly (and obviously) killed off before the kid finally realises that this is not part of the game, and that Satan isn't such a great guy after all. There is an interesting juxtaposition along the way: the killer is dressed as Satan, then later as Jesus, then as a cop, but it leads to one of the most anticlimactic endings I've seen in a long time.

Obvious and unsuccessful horror-related jokes (the kid lives at 66 Heller st., for example) and again, the nonsensical, AWFUL ending are biggest detriments to the film.
