Its poorly written,badly directed and the acting is on a par with my daughters first school play when she was 5. Gloriously daft but with a good deal of heart, Fanged Up's Hammer in the slammer shtick has a surprising amount of bite. It's suppose to be a comedy, however the humor is very childish and may as well have been written by a child. Not only that but with a lot of the language used, many of the jokes would likely fly over their heads. Terrified of what might happen to him among seasoned lags twice his size, he's fortunate to fall in with beefy Russian hard man Viktor Stu Bennett ; but in other ways, things don't look too good. It's just a waste of the earths resources to make this type of rubbish.
It had lots of potential to be a good film but it just doesn't deliver which is so unfortunate. . It is packed full of sarcasm. When googling the 'lead actor' it stated he was a comedian, and looking at a few of his 'jokes' I can see that the only funny and original thing that he ever did was label himself a comedian, if 'dapper' is a comedian then I'm Janet Jackson. The effects are good considering the obvious limitations.
Also in the prison is a young doctor, Katie Danielle Harold , who just happens to be Jimmy's ex, and a bountiful source of barbed comments about him. However, it is just the right kind of stupid that tickles me. The weakest aspect of Fanged Up is quite simply the story. In 2014 he was known as Dapper Laughs and was a poster boy for toxic masculinity, from his pick-up artist sleaze to his ill-advised comments about rape. Expecting to spend the night in the cells down at the local nick, he instead finds himself transported to a high security prison. British comedy usually delivers some great comedy especially when there is a horror element, this sadly doesn't. Slap head is funny as ever, we needed more of him, but that's it.
Victor attempts to help Jimmy settle in but they have much bigger things to worry about. There's a little more to this than just coincidence, and she has suspicions of her own, but that might not be enough to save her from the sinister plotting of the Governor and his associates. The cast and crew, directors and funders obviously paid some people of convinced a thousand people to give this a good rating, When you do that it just doesnt waste peoples times, it wastes the time that you could have used to better yourself at making a decent b movie, this was awful, but i did see your crisima which i enjoy. It's partly this willingness to engage with comedy in a new way that makes Fanged Up more fun that anyone had a right to expect. Learn from your mistakes, better yourselvesP! Being the sort of guy he is, O'Reilly's character, Jimmy, has a gift for getting into fights.
This should on paper, have been a good movie buts thats football. Its bad, I mean really really bad and I'll say it again. With melting faces and 12 gallons of fake blood used this is a film for gore lovers. These are lashings of gore, some deliberately feeble jokes, some good character-based comedy and predictable but nonetheless entertaining twists towards the end. He doesn't win them but he knows how to find them, and this time, the cops find him. Seriously, its paper thin but ultimately not that important. Dapper and his comedy and personality mixing into this film along with experienced actors like terry stone.
My advise is don't waste your money on this wait until it screens on the horror channel and then watch something else instead. The jokes may not be everyone's humour but I will be recommending it to many people, A light hearted horror you can watch time after time. Cheesy horror conventions are spun out alongside the prison movie clichés, but neither genre is played straight. There are some entertaining if rather clumsily directed fight scenes, and Bennett's dry humour makes the perfect antidote to the film's more hysterical scenes. Harold may be playing the token woman for much of the film's running time, and there's that older strain of comedy romance in which we're invited to wonder whether Katie will pity Jimmy enough to fall for him again, but she has a properly developed character and story arc of her own, and the film just about manages to pass the Bechdel test despite its setting. This is a review simply based of the sheer enjoyment the cast have had making the film its a no brainer to go and see it so to all the tasteless people giving poor ratings to the hard work that people put into this your scum go and see for yourself the clips of behind the scenes and the fun they had.
I was lucky enough to see this film last year at frightfest, this film has great acting by Daniel o'reilly who plays a loveable laddish role. Firstly, Fanged Up is quite possibly the most British horror comedy I have ever seen. The degree of ridicule that his character - not a million miles from the Laughs persona - is subjected to in the course of this film makes it an ambitious form of penance, but more to the point, his script written with Nick Nevern suggests that he has understood why he was failing to impress, and seen the funny side of his own failings. The acting was acceptable Stu Bennett was a stand out for me as I didn't expect him to be as good a actor as he was The story didn't make much sense but I get it, it's a horror comedy, just roll with it. The best thing about it was it finished but then I felt I wanted to kill myself after having sat through such rubbish.
I wish I was banged up for all of 2 hours happily! I don't know where to start, it's the worst movie I have ever seen, and not in a cool, fun bad movie sort of way. So I remember watching all the behind the scenes to the making of this and it was amazing how the actors got along and what they had to do to make this happen also watching stu bennet and Stephen marcus discussing fanged up with how the plot comes together you may say that this is pathetic or cheap but in all fairness it'll be the next shaun of the dead. Reviewed on: 24 Jul 2018. It's great entertainment for a night in with good friends and a couple of crates of beer - unless, of course, you only drink wine. Especially when they come across the curious fact that all the inmates have the same rare blood group. Namely, the warden who just so happens to be a blood-sucking vampire. Fanged up is a horror comedy that was directed by Christian James, it released in 2017.
On the whole, I had a lot of fun with it. The humor was on point but I do think non-British viewers will be a little lost and some of it will get lost in translation. People need to remember dapper laughs was a character, I worked on this with Daniel, he wrote this not only as a comedy horror, with romance but also as a vehicle to strip himself of the dapper character, you see elements of it at the beginning in the character he plays them it's completely stripped and made vaunrable, he's a class act in this. Saw a screening of this not long ago and I did enjoy it for the most part. Anyone involved in this mess needs to have a good hard look at themselves and consider a career change as entertainment clearly isn't their bag. I watched an early screening of this film and was amazed how bad it was. Secondly, I have to give the film some credit for what is a rather unique setup for a vampire film.
