      Paul Lê Bloody Disgusting Lieberman conically illustrates evil and its pull in storybook America; he uses a child to propose honest questions about the presence of something wicked in familiar surroundings. Rated: 3/5 Jul 23, 2023 Full Review Martin Unsworth Starburst Even with the gore, the film gives an air of nostalgia. Rated: 4/5 Jul 17, 2023 Full Review Jessica Scott We Who Walk Here Writer-director Jeff Lieberman’s independent horror-comedy mixes morbid humor with buckets of blood and guts to produce a wickedly fun piece of Samhain entertainment. Dec 23, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy The type of film where the plotting only works if the characters are complete imbeciles. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 30, 2022 Full Review Jon Condit Dread Central Irreverent, subversive and deliciously caustic, Satan's Little Helper is a unique and daring achievement, the type only independent films can deliver. Rated: 4/5 Oct 2, 2020 Full Review Dustin Putman TheFilmFile.com An uncompromisingly wicked, subjectively brave chiller practically crying out to be discovered. Rated: 3/4 Oct 24, 2008 Full Review Read all reviews

      Fleegle B An awesome Halloween movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Andy S (I'm Mistletoe Virus I'm saying I love this movie!) The movie is a wonderful mix of horror and dark comedy, and the movie never really takes itself too serious Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/12/23 Full Review Joji S Its funny kinda creepy. The movie plot fits perfectly a naive child manipulated. I won't say much but omg hahaha. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/20/23 Full Review sean s As much as I like Amanda Plumber, this movie isn't the best. The little pudgy kid is super annoying and looks like he should be a little psycho chartered accountant. It is hard to have any sympathy for his twit sister and her trendy-looking boyfriend. The talents of Amanda Plumber are wasted in this one. If you need something for background filler, this could work though... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Steven C The Characters, the setting, and the cinematography are all amazing. It truly captures the season and spirit of Halloween. The plot is chilling, realistic and all too believable. This movie is criminally underrated and needs to be appreciated. This will be that one movie you watch in October and recommend to everyone you know. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/30/22 Full Review Audience Member The film which got me into horror films as a teenager and deserves to be seen by every so-called horror fan out there! Plot/film 10/10 - effects 8/10 (could have done with more blood on the worst kill scene for full marks, but otherwise a BRILLIANT horror classic) Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
