Anton is a lazy teenage stoner. One day he discovers his parents are dead. Which is when he also discovered he killed them. He then kills his two friends. After discovering his hand is possessed, he must stop it from killing his girlfriend.

 

 

The music was probably the best part of this movie. That being said, this is one of those movies I could probably rewatch a thousand times. It’s stupid and pointless and makes very little sense. Which in its own way, makes it a wonderful movie.

Besides, it has a scene with knitting needles that is great. I watched one before where the needles were stuck in the guys eye (don’t know what movie though. Halloween maybe?). This was better.

 

So… I recommend this, just keep in mind that the stupidity is part of the charm.

Comedy with some horror elements and a dismembered hand with a mind of its own.

Tucker & Dale vs Evil
Horror comedy. Bloody deaths caused by stupidity.

My Boyfriend’s Back
Horror comedy with some romance and zombies.
