It’s Halloween time, so I’ve decided to watch some Halloween films of the non-scary variety. Idle Hands may not be a terrible movie, but it’s also not all that memorable. There doesn’t seem like too much of a purpose to it all.
Reminiscent of the Evil Dead films, this film subtly sprinkles comedy over the horror, but still doesn’t invoke many laughs. But as nostalgia, we can look back and somewhat appreciate this film for what it is. It serves as a nice addition to the cult halloween movie genre.
It’s seldom laugh-out-loud, and it’s also not terribly quotable. However, the cast is fun to watch and it’s far from boring. Idle Hands is so goofy that it just works.
