I can't say enough bad things about this movie.
M. Terminesi
It's not really fair to compare this to other comedy or horror movies out there, because there aren't too many movies like it.
Amazon Customer
Just like all other Broken Lizard movies, this is a movie to BUY and watch many times without ever getting old.

at the University of Pittsburgh's free sneak preview. All I have to say is wow! It was amazing. It is slightly scary (not expected) and overwhelmingly, extremely funny (more than expected). It doesn't play off of Super Troopers' success at all. This movie has a life of its own and is worth seeing. I love it. All I want to know if when does it come out on DVD?

The problem with this film is that it falls into a narrow, narrow film niche: horror-comedy. Many horror fans will loathe the fact that the film parodies common tropes of the genre . . . many comedy fans may not "get" the parody itself. Thus, you have the wildly mixed reviews that you find here.

Personally, I found this work hysterical (but I love goofy films like "Idle Hands," "Evil Dead," and "April Fool's Day"). Bill Paxton portrayal of a Jimmy Buffet "wannabe" is spot-on!! Moreover, it was refreshing to see Kevin Heffernan fearlessly tackle a character completely different from Farva: a spiritual masseur! Still, Jay Chandrasekhar steals the show not merely because he is one of the most handsome men in existence, but because his character of Putnam is RIDICULOUSLY FUNNY!!

If you don't "get" why "Shaun of the Dead" was so uproariously funny, this film may leave you confused and disappointed. Still, you should buy it for the Pac-Man scene alone!!! And, no, it's not "Super Troopers" . . . BUT WHAT IS??! It is just a silly film . . . exactly what it was intended to be!! On that level, it succeeds!!

Just give this film a chance:) (And buy "Beerfest" too!!)

"Club Dread" was one of the most entertaining, funny, and scary movie that I have seen in a long time. It also kept me guessing, right untill the very end. I found it to be rude, crude, and vicious fun. It is the second film in the comedy troop "Broken Lizard" who made a film about two years ago called "Super Troopers" which I have never seen. I almost gave this movie five stars, but was stopped because of the first scene. I thought that the first scene was a little dull, and after that I was scared that the entire movie would be a waste of time. I was very very wrong. The movie stars Bill Paxton, who I thought was great in this as Coconut Pete, Brittany Daniel from "Joe Dirt," and the leader of Broken Lizard, Jay Chandrasekhar, who played a tennis instructor who thinks that his playing is great.
The movie takes place on Pleasure Island resort in Costa Rica. Run by former former rock star Coconut Pete. He has young people come and have a good time, away from phones, and other technology, and wants his visitors to have a good time with the staffers. The staffers include Putnam, the tennis instructor, Sam, the captain of the "Fun Police" and Jenny, the aerobics instructor who has a reputation of sleeping with many of the staff members. Jenny becomes interested with the new masseur Lars whose has hands like magic, much to the dismay of Putnam. All of the staff members are ready to have fun for the week, untill one of the staff members is killed. More and more start to die, and they are killing people based on the lyrics of Coconut Pete's songs. Pete hired the security guard Hank to help them find out who is killing everybody, as they try and survive the week at the resort, all while suspecting everybody including each other.
"Club Dread" sounds like a spoof, but it is not.

I personally think this movie is better than most do. It may not be as funny as Super Troopers but it is rather entertaining. I find Bill Paxton's second-rate Jimmy Buffet character Coconut Pete to be absolutely hysterical. The film serves its purpose of having little plot and some good laughs very well, but if your expecting some sort of artistic genius here stay away.

In terms of what this movie was going for, I think it was a fine movie. Many hilarious moments, some good horror moments as well. I'd say it's right on the money.

Whether or not you liked Broken Lizard's last film, 2002's cult hit Super Troopers, and depending on how low brow you like your comedy, will determine how muh you like Club Dread. The five members play various counselors for washed up rocker Coconut Pete (Bill Paxton, played with wonderful comedic abandon) on his Pleasure Island, where the staff and the vacationers gleefully throw their inhibitions to the wind. However, there is a machete wielding killer on the loose, and for a horror-spoof the violence is surprisingly extreme. Full of blood and copious female nudity, the one thing Club Dread is lacking is in the laugh department. It has it's moments, but the best laughs undoubtadly come from Paxton and the insanely hot Brittany Daniel. All in all, if you dug Super Troopers, Club Dread is worth a look, but all others may want to proceed with caution.

not knowing much or anything really about Broken Lizard troupe I throughly enjoyed Supertroopers and had to check Club Dread it will not let you down at all incredibly funny and it was a nice suprise to see these cast members play parts other than whacky cops. I recommend completely!

It's not near as good as "Super Troopers," but it's not that bad either. I thought it lagged a lot in some parts, but it did have its moments. It's worth watching at least once. Get the unrated version if possible.
