Happy Slapping
20 February 2015 | by tbracaSee all my reviews

When I first viewed this film it was part of a summer festival and I picked the early morning slot. The director of the movie shot the movie entirely via his phone boy was he ahead of his time. In today's world of iphone 6 I can't imagine how much more brilliant this movie would turn out to be.

The actors who were in this movie played his or her role brilliantly egos were checked outside the door. I recommend you rent or buy this flick but please view it in the evening when you can focus as at times it was difficult to concentrate....I give it an 8 on 10 ....a 10 on 10 for the actors/director...enjoy and happy viewing..
