Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Jessica Alba, I thought I might as well check it out. Eventually, I thought that the whole concept of the possessed hand was just a rather stupid idea, right from the start, so it was rather difficult for me to really like this flick. Of course, I understand that it wasn’t supposed to be taken seriously but the ... read more

Words cannot express how much I love this movie. Okay, so it's not, at first glance, really very good. But it is so awesome for so many reasons: it's a horror/comedy; Seth Green; the totally cheesy but awesome lines...so well written, despite the totally crap story line about the possessed hands. That crappy story line brought to life on screen with the cast and in the way it was brought to lif... read more

Description: The devil will find work for idle hands to do...so what happens when he chooses the laziest teen slacker in the world to do his dirty work? Anton Tobias is a channel-surfing, junk-food munching, couch potato burn-out who can't control the murderous impulses of his recently possessed hand. With the help of his zombiefied buddies, Mick and Pnub, Anton's got to stop the rampaging devil appendage before it takes total control of his life and ruins any chance he has with class hottie Molly. Vivica A. Fox and Jack Noseworthy co-star in this wickedly funny horror comedy. ... (more)

" Date: 5/31/2021 Viewed: Pluto TV Re-Watch Note: I have nostalgic memories of me watching this movie with my friends back in 1999. I decided to watch it on Pluto TV because I was curious if it still holds up or not. Idle Hands is still a fun movie from the late 1990s in my opinion. You have fun characters, solid production values, and a neat premise. I always found the story to be entertaining with a hand that goes on a killing spree. Idle Hands is almost like Parasyte, but as a horror-comedy"
