Shot in Hamilton, Ontario, Vicious Fun is directed by Cody Calahan, produced by Chad Archibald and Calahan and written by James Villeneuve. The film features an incredible cast including David Koechner (Anchorman, Cheap Thrills), Evan Marsh (Shazam!, Riot Girls), Amber Goldfarb (TV’s Bad Blood), Julian Richings (TV’s Supernatural, Man of Steel), Robert Maillet (300, Immortals), Ari Millen (TV’s Orphan Black, I’ll Take Your Dead) and Sean Baek (TV’s Killjoys).

Synopsis for Vicious Fun

The film follows Joel, a caustic 1980’s film critic for a national horror magazine, who finds himself unwittingly trapped in a self-help group for serial killers. With no other choice, Joel attempts to blend in with his homicidal surroundings or risk becoming the next victim.

“An outrageous mash-up of dread and humour, Vicious Fun lives up to its title,” said Craig McGillivray, Breakthrough Entertainment’s Vice President of Distribution. “We are thrilled to have Turner Latin America’s new movie banner, Particular Crowd, as a partner on this film, and look forward to sharing the howls and horrors we’ve created together.”

“It felt like the right time for us to branch out and make something outside our comfort zone,” said Director Cody Calahan. “These characters are wacky, satirical and genuinely funny. I can honestly say that I’ve never had so much fun on set and I think that translates directly to the screen. Vicious Fun marks the start of a new slate of films for us and we’re committed to pushing ourselves in new directions.”
