About the Movie
Five suburban youths embark on a night of violence in the city, attacking unsuspecting victims while recording the assaults on smartphones. The film was shot entirely by the teenagers on their cell phones.
Inspired by true events, HAPPY SLAPPING follows a group of five rich suburban kids as they set off to the inner city to seek out fame. Their plan is to manufacture an evening so shocking that their smartphone footage will turn them into instant Internet celebrities. After the group’s rivalled by another street gang, and intimidated by their online idol, they are forced to take their misbehavior up a notch in order to make a name for themselves. And, as always things get out of hand, however, this time everything’s being recorded!
Watched this and immediately thought about the Larry Clark's masterpiece's 'KIDS and Bully". This is a twisted and poignant film about the bleakness of adolescence. I had no idea the that "Happy Slapping" was actually a fad. Good acting from the main character, he really drove the film to some much needed pathos. Highly Recomended
Haunting, euphoric, disturbingly real & hits the viewers hard - all this with an amazing cast,writers and producers. At times I really thought I was watching a documentary. The original score went straight to the soul of the movie. Pure talent on all levels. Highly recommended.
Fantastic movie!! Hard-hitting and very timely. This movie speaks to today's youth/generation and their absorption with online notoriety. Great acting and very originally filmed. Strongly recommended.
