Breakthrough Entertainment and Black Fawn Films in partnership with Turner Latin America’s new movie banner, Particular Crowd, are set to release the first film in this new collaboration, the horror-comedy Vicious Fun.

The film follows Joel, a caustic 1980’s film critic for a national horror magazine, who finds himself
unwittingly trapped in a self-help group for serial killers. With no other choice, Joel attempts to blend in
with his homicidal surroundings or risk becoming the next victim.

Cody Calahan. “These characters are wacky, satirical and genuinely funny. I can honestly say that I’ve never had so much fun on set and I think that translates directly to the screen. Vicious Fun marks the start of a new slate of films for us and we’re committed to pushing ourselves in new directions.”

Shot in Hamilton, Ontario, Vicious Fun is directed by Cody Calahan, produced by Chad Archibald and Calahan and written by James Villeneuve. The film features an incredible cast including David
Koechner (Anchorman, Cheap Thrills), Evan Marsh (Shazam!, Riot Girls), Amber Goldfarb (TV’s Bad Blood), Julian Richings (TV’s Supernatural, Man of Steel), Robert Maillet (300, Immortals), Ari Millen (TV’s Orphan Black, I’ll Take Your Dead) and Sean Baek (TV’s Killjoys).

“We’re delighted to be starting this collaboration with Vicious Fun. We’ve really enjoyed working with the
Breakthrough team and feel that Cody and Chad are creative powerhouses and hope this will be the first
of many movies we’ll be working on together,” said Peter Bevan, Particular Crowd VP.
