Review: Idle Hands (1999/R)

Horror movies usually get the lowest scores, and the toughest grading standards in our book (thanks to one note hack directors like Eli Roth and James Wan who make the genre torture porn, and remember we’re the website that gave the I Spit on Your Grave movies higher scores then Star Trek II and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, so we do judge story structre fairly.) However when we dip our toe in the horror genre pool we do come out with postive reiews (one day we’ll get around to reviewing a little film from 1982 called Poltergiest) every once in a while, and this time was one of those with the horror-comedy Idle Hands. In today’s world the backs of torture porn forgot that you can laugh and be scared at the same time (too us it’s actually a lost art.) Honestly why is this film seem long forgotten today? The answer is a bad release date April 30th, 1999 only 10 days after th Columbine High School tragety. But it’s not a total gore fest, Anton, and his freinds Mick and Pnub are all potheads. This film has more in common with stoner films the slasher films.
