SHUDDER, the premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, is thrilled to release a key scene for Cody Calahan’s fabulously bloody blast from the past VICIOUS FUN which will be released exclusively on SHUDDER from 29 June 2021. The scene can be viewed HERE.
Joel (Evan Marsh), a caustic 1980’s 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 with his homicidal surroundings or risk becoming the next victim.
Directed by Cody Calahan (The Oak Room), the award-winning VICIOUS FUN stars Evan Marsh (Shazam!), Amber Goldfarb (Appiness), Ari Millen (Orphan Black), Julian Richings (Shudder’s Anything For Jackson), Robert Maillet (Sherlock Holmes), Sean Baek (Killjoys), David Koechner (Anchorman), Alexa Rose Steele (Jann), Mark Gibson (Exit Humanity), Kristopher Bowman (Deep River: The Island) and John Fray (The Silence).
A riotously exhilarating neon-soaked ride of nostalgia, self-aware laughs and gory thrills, VICIOUS FUN more than lives up to its name and arrives on SHUDDER on 29 June 2021. The film has been a hit with festival critics, and it recently won the Audience Award and the Golden Raven at the 2021 Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival.
