Vicious Fun, a fantastic bloody black comedy from Cody Calahan.

Joel (played by Evan Marsh ) an eager film critic for a national horror magazine, finds himself unwittingly trapped in a self-help group for serial killers. With no other choice, Joel attempts to blend in or risk becoming the next victim.

Evan Marsh plays the role of Joel perfectly as he nervously stumbles from sentence to sentence in the hope of not being discovered by the nest of killers but this is not just a dialogue movie, the film shifts into a super fun game of cat and mouse (not literally cat and mice though) as things taken a turn for the sinister

Vicious Fun is a great blend of a stage play format along with one of my teen favourites The Breakfast Club, Directed by Cody Calahan (Antisocial) he and the team have crafted a wonderful love letter not just to the classic 70s and 80s horror slashers, but also to modern nostalgia films and shows such as Stranger Things, Summer of 84 and a long list of classic 80s films that I could list including 1981’s Halloween II, but hey, lets stay on the Vicious Fun path.

Great writing, great cast, great film, great set pieces and buckets of blood and along with a huge bucket of popcorn (not soaked in blood) and some drinks. Vicious Fun is a great nights entertainment that truly begs fir a sequel (and I hope we get one)
