Idle Hands (1999)

Rodman Flender directs Devon Sawa, Seth Green and Elden Henson in this horror comedy about a stoner who cuts off his demonically possessed killer hand and hangs out with the reanimated buddies he killed. 

Absolute dreck, venal and compromised. Only a familiar pop punk soundtrack and a vapid but almost offensively voluptuous debut by Jessica Alba make this worthy of any note. I laughed at how dated, clunky and awkward this all was quite a few times, rarely am I slave to schadenfreude. Some good FX shots live incongruously within a lot of lacklustre ones.
