Broken Lizard's Club Dread is a send-up of horror movies with the traditional Broken Lizard style. The film takes place on a beach island resort where a killer stalks the guests and employees. A throwback to the 80's with the raunch Broken Lizard style. It's not as funny in my opinion as Super Troopers, but if you're a fan of that movie, you'll still love this one. It has some genuine laughs, so you'll be entertained. Just maybe not remembering you did the next day. But that kind of drunken haze is what Broken Lizard are all about!

Hey, Broken Lizard Can Do No Wrong in My World . . .

"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!!)

Saw it last night....

"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?"
Wildly Entertaining, and Not a Spoof!

""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. It is pure horror/comedy. I thought that it was scarier then recent horror films like "Freddy vs Jason" and "Dawn of the Dead" and I liked how it was hilarious as well. It wasn't to long in the end, and I felt that the entire money was worth the money that it spent. I don't see how it didn't make alot of money, but it will probally do much better when it comes out on video. I thought Bill Paxton was a big highlight as Coconut Pete, and he was hilarious. It has graphic violence, and graphic nudity, but it was still a great film. If it wasn't for the beginning, it would be a five star movie, and mabye one of the best of the year. I am awaiting the next Broken Lizards comedy.ENJOY!Rated R for violence/gore, sexual content, language and drug use."
