HELP, I SHRUNK MY FRIENDS (HILFE, ICH HAB MEINE FREUNDE GESCHRUMPFT)

HELP, I SHRUNK MY FRIENDS
© Petro Domenigg

Production Report featured in
German Films Quarterly 04/2019

This, the third film in the 'Help' series, in which young Felix accidentally but constantly shrinks his parents, teacher and friends, sees familiar faces pursuing their evil hopes and schemes while the arrival of the pretty Melanie, a new pupil, throws Felix and his buddies into chaos: he has secretly fallen for the new girl, but his friends are not so impressed, feeling there is something not quite right about her.

While Felix works with the help of the friendly school ghost on controlling his unique power, a school trip turns out to be more of a horror trip as first Felix shrinks his friends and then they are all lured into a trap by Hulda, the 140-year-old school terror, the ghost of the former headmistress, and this time it looks like she has won.
