Gory Jester Man
7 February 2011 | by (the Doomed Megalopolis of Blasphemous Technoids) – See all my reviews

"Funny Man" is most likely an abhorrent oddity to the more serious & 'intelligent' horror fan amongst the audience and pretty much a fun ride to those who enjoy a loose horror cannon with blood fodder every now and then. It's like Ken Russell's "Gothic" meets "Spookies" on acid without the monsters but with gore and a villain that's a cross between Leprechaun or Rumpelstiltskin (just pick your favorite ) and Freddy Krueger. Virtually no plot, but rather a rigging together of insane gags, with a few effectively gory bits thrown in the mix that would have been very suitable in early Peter Jackson/Sam Raimi movies. So, you may take that as a compliment. Obviously, the absurd - and often pretty dumb - humor is something you'll have to tolerate. Either you fly with it, or you'll get annoyed by it. Christopher Lee makes a cameo appearance that feels much like just a narrator's part in the wraparound story of some B-horror anthology film. And as nothing more than a cameo, his contribution oddly enough works like a silly charm, almost. Because, well, "Funny Man" is a British nonsensical B-horror flick made with enthusiasm, a fair amount of creativity and perfectly acceptable little rippings-off left & right. It's all not to be taken seriously at all. If you do, you're on the wrong track.
