Storyline

When Max Taylor wins the ancestral home of Callum Chance in a game of Poker, little does he realise that the game is far from over... One by one, Max's family are murdered by the Funny Man, a demonic jester with a varied and imaginative repertoire of homicidal techniques and an irreverent sense of humour. Meanwhile, Max's brother is on his way to the mansion with a bunch on hitchhikers who will be lucky to survive the night. Written by Paul McCluskey

What a marvel of a movie
31 January 2002 | by Depth ChargeSee all my reviews

This movie is both hilarious and quite nasty. Some of the deaths in the movie are shocking; they are both gruesome and very original. It will more likely be liked better by the brits than the americans just because of the sense of humour but believe me if you can see this then do cause it is very funny:D
