A naïve young boy unknowingly becomes the pawn of a serial killer.
The tag 'straight-to-video' is not the deterrent it used to be, in-fact it's become more of an attention grabber for most as it's where most of the original and creative films are to be found. Step forward "Satan's Little Helper"
The acting isn't the greatest but what it lacks in on screen talent is made up for with very dark humour which will have you laughing through-out, well this is a comedy/horror so that's it's job. Like I said the acting isn't the greatest but my favourite is the mute character 'Satan' his characteristics are greatly played out even though he's wearing a mask, sort of like a comedic Michael Myers.
Before this film was made writer/director Jeff Lieberman had not done any film work for many years, He seems to do a film and then disappear for years. Just look at his history - "Squirm (1976), Blue Sunshine (1978), Just Before Dawn (1981), Remote Control (1988), Satan's Little Helper (2004). I suppose you could count Lieberman as a cult director, I just wish he'd do more though because he definitely has talent but since "Satan's Little Helper" was his last film to be made and now being 65 years old there's a-lot of doubt for a future release, I hope I'm wrong.
