Happy Helladays Review

The year was 1987. Ronald Reagan went overseas and challenged Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall, the Iran-Contra affair was in full swing, and the American people clenched their collective sphincters as our president went under the knife for prostate surgery. It was a big year for us, but it was an even bigger year for Alister Frohaim, a tragically hip and misunderstood youngster who was about to lose his shit in a big way.

As a screaming infant, Alister was abandoned on the doorstop of the Omega Pi sorority house. The house mother, being the good samaritan she was, immediately took the boy in and raised him side-by-side with her brood of bitching collegiates.

If Alister had grown to be a jock, a plastic pistol wielding scamp, or perhaps a more cunning linguist, he might have done alright in the Omega Pi house, but unfortunately, he was none of those things. Alister grew into an awkward, spectacled 12-year old boy with a passion for singing Christmas Carols, and an unabashed love of pop sensation Michael Jackson.

The year was 1987. Michael Jackson was tearing up the charts with his new album, “Bad,” and his biggest fan, Alister, was about to tear up the halls of Omega Pi house with his own rendition of evil. Tortured, harassed, and humiliated by the young women of Omega Pi, Alister finally snapped and began eliminating them one by one on Christmas Eve, his grinning face peeking maniacally from a Santa costume.


Happy Helladays is another great flick from the gang over at Warlock Home Video. Brimming over with humor, blood, and gut-busting absurdities, Happy Helladays is about as good as it gets in the DIY shot-on-video arena. Be prepared for a super-low budget and intentionally VHS-style presentation, but also be prepared to watch this movie several times, tell all your friends about it, and instantly become obsessed with Warlock Home Video.

Tobe Lerone starred as the 12-year old boy Alister, and spent most of the film on his knees due to the inconvenient reality of his being a grown man. The result is a bizarre and constantly fun to watch presentation that reminds of Tim Conway in “Dorf on Golf.” Lerone also wrote and directed the film, and he did a kick-ass job. The pacing was tight, the dialogue was fun to listen to, and the whole film had a great feel that took me back to the days of watching outrageous Public Access programming.


I’ve seen three movies from Warlock Home Video so far, and I’ve loved each and every one of them. If you’re the kind of movie nut that loves seeing magic happen when a production is put together with duct tape and twine, then these are the guys you should be watching. I can’t imagine any of these films cost very much to make, but the end result is so damn fun to watch that it simply becomes one more part of their charm.

Check these movies out. You will not regret it!
