Vicious Fun is a horror-comedy film that was released in 2020. Directed by Cody Calahan, the movie stars Evan Marsh, Amber Goldfarb, and Ari Millen. The plot follows a horror writer named Joel, played by Evan Marsh, who goes to a support group for serial killers only to find himself trapped with real serial killers. The movie is set in the 1980s and features a retro vibe in terms of both aesthetics and humor. The film's plot is centered around Joel, who is a writer for a horror magazine. Joel is a bit of an outsider, socially awkward, and unable to find love. Joel's world is turned upside down when he attends a support group for serial killers, believing it to be some sort of writing exercise.

Joel quickly discovers that the support group is the real deal and that he is surrounded by actual serial killers. The group is led by a charismatic man named Bob, played by Julian Richings. Bob takes his role as the leader of the killer support group very seriously and is very proud of the work they do. Despite being confused and scared, Joel finds himself strangely drawn to the group.

As the night progresses, the group engages in a game where they each tell the story of their most gruesome murder. Joel reluctantly joins in, and his fictional story is so twisted that it impresses the other killers. However, when one of the killers recognizes Joel's story as being based on one of his own murders, Joel finds himself in a life-or-death situation. The killer wants to know how Joel knows the details of the murder.

The movie has a lot of humorous moments despite the grim plot, such as the portrayal of the serial killers as eccentric characters with unique quirks. For example, one of the killers has a pet guinea pig that he loves more than anything else in the world. The rest of the group is horrified when the pet is accidentally killed during the festivities.

The film's blend of horror and humor creates a unique viewing experience that is both entertaining and suspenseful. At times, the movie leans more towards the comedy genre, featuring witty one-liners and absurd situations. However, the horror elements are present throughout the film, with scenes that are genuinely scary and terrifying.

One of the movie's strengths is its casting. Evan Marsh delivers a great performance as the socially awkward Joel, who is out of his depth in the killer support group. His character provides a lot of the film's humor, but he also manages to create a relatable protagonist that the audience can root for.

The supporting cast of killers are also excellent. Each character is distinct and memorable, making them stand out in a genre that can often feature one-dimensional villains. Ari Millen, who plays the killer Bob, is particularly impressive, delivering a chilling and charismatic performance that is both frightening and captivating.

The movie's cinematography is also noteworthy, with the 80s aesthetic making the film visually appealing. The film's score also contains a retro feel and adds to the overall ambiance of the movie.

Overall, Vicious Fun is an enjoyable horror-comedy that manages to blend humor and horror in a unique and successful way. The movie's retro vibe, strong performances, and suspenseful moments make it an entertaining and satisfying viewing experience.

Vicious Fun is a 2020 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 41 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5 and a MetaScore of 51.
