If there’s one thing we learned from 1990’s horror movies, it’s that your expectations don’t matter. People wanted novelty. Simon Sprackling will surprise you at every turn, with style and no substance. Funny Man isn’t your typical slasher film. It’s British, for one thing, and it breaks the fourth wall every chance it gets. The score is right out of a circus, even when people are being killed.
You know, that 1980’s horror film with a scary jester offing protagonists one by one after they’ve had premarital sex? Well, this isn’t that movie. We’re way passed that. The world ends in 6 years, people. We need to revolutionize the genre! This is what the 90’s fisheye lens is for. This is the reason half the characters are right out of Mad Max. It’s the reason this film is so atrocious.
Funny Man throws weird stuff your way every two minutes, like that Velma look-alike, who turns this investigation into a Scooby Doo episode for a while. It’s hard to keep up with. It’s a complicated movie. Films like these are the reason people say 90’s horror sucked. It’s disjointed. It seems to have been made by someone who hates horror movies. That jester is creepy, though...
