Hanky Panky Movie Reviews

A Love Letter to Cult Films

The film Hanky Panky, directed by Lindsey Haun and Nick Roth, can best be described as a true love letter to cult films and cinema as a whole. From its opening title credits that invoke imagery similar to The Shining, to its overall witty dialogue reminiscent of films like The Rocky Horry Picture Show, this film demonstrates a true passion for films of all genres and styles. Through seamlessly intertwining humor with scenes that are actually quite suspenseful, the filmmakers are able to keep the audience engaged as you never quite know what is coming next. While at times some of the decisions regarding score or shot selection can be off-putting, they always maintain a deep sense of intentionality by the filmmakers that work to give Hanky Panky its own tone and style that are unlike any other film I have previously seen. The entire concept as a whole feels fresh and new which is something as I viewer I deeply appreciate in the modern culture of cinema that is full of remakes and sequels.

In terms of viewing this film, I cannot recommend more to watch this film with all of your closest friends and family. Similar to how this film was made by a group of friends getting together, I genuinely believe the viewing experience requires just that. Similar to how many cult films thrive in an environment where the audience can interact with one another as well as with the film, Hanky Panky is no different in which it truly makes for a great film to watch with friends. Not only this, as films today can often be too serious, Hanky Panky breaks out from that mold by simply being a film that is fun, carefree, and full of unique/likable characters. With all of this in mind, I highly recommend that next time you are hanging out with friends or family, you give Hanky Panky a watch as it will truly make for a good time.

Feels like a Student Short Film

From the opening credits, the movie references The Shining, and has a rather goofy running and eventual death scene. It is clear from the movie’s opening, tone, music, and poster that it’s supposed to be a horror comedy. But there is a disconnect in the lighting and scene setting that takes away from that horror comedy ‘feel’, and quite distractingly sets the scene to feel more like a sitcom.

Every scene seems to have bright lighting that doesn’t match the tone of the scene itself. Even in scenes with graphic violence, the atmosphere never feels scary, dark, moody, or really even different because there is always very bright and even lighting. There are almost no lighting nuances that lend itself to the horror part of this horror comedy. Even in a scene that does create a different atmosphere with lighting, the commitment to very even lighting throughout the film made the switch-up distracting rather than adding to the film. The scene was when Sam and Carla dig through the snow to get through the window. In the shot within the room, there is a darkness element that matches the panicked and dark tone of the shot, but then immediately switches to a shot from the outside looking into the room, which has the same bright and even lighting throughout the film. This stark contrast leaves a huge disconnect that is very confusing. It looks like two different scenes that are not connected to each other in any way.

Every scene seems to be shot in a way that focuses on everything within the scene without any attempts at bokeh. It subconsciously makes it difficult for the audience to decide on what to look at, should we focus on the person talking, or to the other characters reacting near them? Even outside of characters themselves, there are almost no shots where there is a depth of field, complexity, or balance between the foreground, middleground, and background. There really is no difference to any of them, they might as well all exist in the same depth of field. It makes it seem like the entire film was shot on a phone or a wide lens camera with no intentionality on focus.

These are all crucial elements that give this movie an amateurish quality of a student short film as opposed to a feature length film. I am also not sure if the poor quality of the special effects was intentionally made to be bad in a “so bad it’s good” way or not.

As for the good, the acting is great. All the characters had believable lines and performances that felt real. I didn’t find the dialogue and plot particularly funny or compelling, but the chemistry and feel of the characters were convincing. It’s very clear that all the actors were very skilled and talented. This strength in the film is what does set it apart from a student short film where you would normally find inexperienced actors.

Set to become a cult classic

Outrageous, a film you feel that surely you’re wasting your time watching, yet which you can’t leave alone. The characters overact magnificently, the animation doesn’t even have its strings and the fishing rod they use edited out in places. I loved the acting. Filming quality and editing were great. Hilarious. Chemistry between characters was an important element that was used well.

You’ll find aliens, odd humans, a Men-in-black character, murder victims and blood by the bucketful, odd table talk ranging from milliners to haberdashers to drapers to mercers. Then there’s the talk of sacrifices and rituals. It has everything to keep you guessing. Well done to the team who made this – what should become a classic.
