That story idea sounds equally both promising and stupid and guess what? That's exactly what happens. Once you get over the very low budget, SLH isn't so bad at the beginning. The kid who plays Douglas definitely does a good portrayal of a kid too stupid for his own good and as wacky as the story sounds, it's actually kind of believable for a little while but then it gets a little too grand for it's own good and instead of playing it subtle, it spreads the malevolence all over town "Needful Things"-style and fails completely.
Despite the silly ending, SATAN'S LITTLE HELPER is still a fun lite-horror film that's greatly benefited by the presence of Katheryn Winnick who is absolutely gorgeous and does a fine job considering she isn't given much to work with. It kinda brings to mind Jennifer Pudavick's standout performance in WRONG TURN 4. Anyway, since there's not really any blood, gore or nudity I would imagine that most horror fans would hate it, but if you're opening minded and can appreciate a film with a low budget then check it out.
Best thing about this movie.
Are those "buttons" on the right actually stickers?!
