Idle Hands

 (1999)

Idle Hands Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

The devil will find work for idle hands to do...but what happens when he chooses the laziest teen slacker in the world to do his dirty work? Anton Tobias (Devon Sawa, Wild America) is a channel-surfing, junk-food munching, couch potato burn-out who can't control the murderous impulses of his recently possessed hand. With the help of his zombiefied buddies, Mick (Seth Green, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me) and Pnub (Elden Henson, The Mighty), Anton's got to stop the rampaging devil appendage before it takes total control of his life and ruins any chance he has with class hottie Molly (Jessica Alba, Never Been Kissed). Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day) and Jack Noseworthy (The Brady Bunch Movie) co-star in this wickedly funny horror comedy.

For more about Idle Hands and the Idle Hands Blu-ray release, see Idle Hands Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Devon Sawa, Seth Green, Elden Henson, Jessica Alba, Vivica A. Fox, Jack Noseworthy

Idle Hands Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Idle Hands was shot by Christopher J. Baffa, who has since become Ryan Murphy's in-house cinematographer, shooting the memorable hues of Running with Scissors, as well as Nip/Tuck and Glee. Even though much of Idle Hands occurs in dark interiors, Baffa has made it a colorful affair, and Image Entertainment's 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray provides a varied and vivid palette for Baffa's work. As has been typical of the Sony titles released through Image, Sony has supplied a superior transfer featuring superb detail, a fine-grained and film-like texture, excellent black levels and contrast, and no indication of high-frequency filtering or other inappropriate digital manipulation. Image has taken advantage of the extra space created by dropping all of the DVD's extras (see "Supplements" below) to encode the 92-minute film at the relatively high average bitrate of 27.85 Mbps, which no doubt helps account for the utter lack of noise or other artifacts added to the transfer in its migration to Blu-ray. Fans have had to wait a long time for Image to release Idle Hands, but at least their patience has been rewarded with a stellar picture.


Idle Hands Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The horror effects in Idle Hands's sound mix tend to be amplified and exaggerated, and the Blu-ray's lossless DTS-HD MA 5.1 gives presence and clarity to every crunch, splatter, blow, evisceration and ominous sound-that-shouldn't-be-there. There's a degree of directionality in the mix, but the sound design relies more on timing and volume balance to achieve its impact. The dialogue is clear, despite stoner slur and the background noise of various loud environments (e.g., a bowling alley). Graeme Revell's score is expertly pitched right on the edge between chills and laughter; Revell knows his way around this territory, having scored such films as The Crow, The Craft and Bride of Chucky, among many others. Like many films aimed at a young audience, Idle Hands had its soundtrack seeded with CD-friendly (this was 1999) songs performed by such groups as Motley Crue, 2 Live Crew, Rob Zombie and The Offspring. The Offspring also appear in the film as the band performing at the Halloween dance. Anton's demonic hand isn't a fan.
