A 1999 horror comedy, starring Devon Sawa, Creator/SethGreen, and Creator/JessicaAlba in her second major studio film to be released (only a few weeks after her first, ''Film/NeverBeenKissed'').

Anton Tobias is a typical lazy stoner. He lives a typical life in suburbia, complete with two pot smoking buddies, a crush on the cute girl, and life is generally good. Until his parents and various other people around town are murdered. The culprit? Anton's right hand.

The movie was a commercial flop, but has garnered a nice little [[CultClassic cult following]] in recent years.
!!This film provides examples of:

* BigBad: The evil force possessing Anton's hand.

* ChainedToABed: When things are getting hot and heavy with Molly, Anton ties his own hand to the bed. He's doing it for her safety, but she thinks he's just being kinky.
* CoincidentalDodge: Happens several times.
* ConnectTheDeaths: They form a pentagram.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Anton's theory about why his other hand didn't get possessed. It was never idle for long.
* DeadlyRotaryFan: [[spoiler: How the hand killed Tanya.]]
* DemonicPossession: What's happened to [[spoiler: Anton's hand]].
* DirtyCop: Two of them harass Anton until [[spoiler: he kills them]].

* DynamicEntry: How does Anton's evil hand make itself known at the dance? [[spoiler: By dropping from the ceiling and scalping the singer of the band]]
* EvilHand:...Duh. It turns into a [[HelpingHands Helping Hand]] after it's cut off.
* ExpressiveMask: When the hand disguises itself as a clown, it gets hit by a puff of stoner smoke, turning the clown face into a derpy look.
* {{Fanservice}}: Jessica Alba. [[https://www.google.com/search?q=jessica+alba+idle+hands&rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS574US574&espv=2&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=4tueVY6GNpCnyASHhpzADA&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1600&bih=1085 Sexy angel costume]]. That's all that need be said.
** That and Molly (the Alba) spending the climax in nothing but her underwear. [[spoiler: Even if in said climax the hand has (somehow) managed to tie her onto the roof of a car that's on a hydraulic lift in a garage, and is trying to kill her by crushing her against the ceiling.]]
*** To say nothing of the car makeout session between Curtis and Tiffany. [[FanDisservice Too bad the hand wanted a piece of the action.]]
* GrievousBottleyHarm: Anton kills Mick by stabbing him in the head with a broken beer bottle. It remains wedged in when he comes back as a zombie.
* HorrorDoesntSettleForSimpleTuesday: Halloween.
* LifeOrLimbDecision: With his possessed hand trying to off him, Anton chops it off and traps it in the microwave.

* OurZombiesAreDifferent: [[spoiler: Mick and Pnub]] act pretty much the same way dead as they did alive.
* RefusingParadise: After getting killed, Mick and Pnub refused to "come to the light" because it was too far. Anton blew off Heaven after accidentally getting crushed by a car in a hydraulic lift, because Molly taking care of him in bed "beats the shit out of Heaven."
* ShoutOut: Don't tell me [[spoiler:Anton's severed hand]] moving about and killing people isn't a reference to ''Film/EvilDead2''.
