FUNNY MAN is a comedy horror, from 1994, in which a demonic jester kills off a group of people in an ancestral stately home.


There are several scenes of strong violence featuring bloody detail, including those in which a man is stabbed through the eye with a stiletto heel, a woman is clubbed to death, a woman is shot in the back of the head causing her brain to fly, a man is blown up by a bomb that causes his head to split in half, and the demonic jester erupts from a woman's body.

There is also a scene in which a man is drenched in blood.


There is some strong language ('f**k'), as well as milder bad language ('bitch', 'shag', 'tossing', 'piss', 'bastards', 'bugger', 'bollocks', 'shit', 'arseholes', 'balls', 'slag', 'frigging', 'sod', 'ass', 'crap', 'bloody', 'moron', 'Jesus Christ').


In some scenes adults snort cocaine and smoke marijuana joints.

There are also some moderate sex references.
