By Dr. E VINE VOICE on January 5, 2007
Format: 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!!)

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?

"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.

Welcome to Coconut Pete's Pleasure Island, a booze-soaked vacation resort where high-spirited fun soon takes a deadly turn -- leaving the island's hilariously inept staff to battle a machete-wielding maniac as they fight to survive another day in paradise. I love spoofy types of movies and this was hysterical. This was done so well that I was either laughing out loud or at the very least smiling through the entire movie. The cast is brilliant and that is everyone. They managed to get all the goofy characters that we roll our eyes at in all the typical slasher movies. Probably not for the very young but young adults and adults....I defy you not to laugh a lot.

The broken lizard comedy group make some really funny movies and I have to say this has got to be my favorite. This movie is full of laughs and keeps you interested until the end no matter how many times you've seen it.

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.

I'm a huge fan of Beerfest and Super Troopers, and I even liked Slammin' Salmon. That said, I think that you really have to be a fan of Broken Lizard to appreciate this film. Even then, it doesn't measure up to their other work. I always thought it would be awesome to combine a horror flick and a comedy flick, like some sort of concoction from a mad scientist's lab. Turns out I was wrong. The effect really isn't all that awesome...in that the humor is diluted and the horror is silly (so neither triggers much emotion). All in all, not a terrible film if you're a fan of these guys and can appreciate the humor that comes simply from watching them do their thing. If you've never seen their other movies, you're going to be left wondering how this project even got off the ground. Even Broken Lizard fans would be hard-pressed to want to watch it more than once, though.
