Watching "Club Dread" I found it hard to believe that this movie was made by the same Broken Lizard comedy team that gave the world "Super Troopers."
While the latter film was one of the funniest comedies of the last five years, "Club Dread" is so spectacularly unfunny that it makes you wonder if "Super Troopers" was a fluke.
At its core, "Dread" seems a parody of slasher flicks in general and of "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" in particular. The killer on the loose at a tropical resort plotline is lifted directly from that earlier film.
But the movie fails to elicit even a single chuckle. Part of the problem is that many scenes are way too violent for a comedy. In fact, the killings are generally played straight and are bloody enough to fit right into any modern slasher film. At the same time, all the lame jokes keep things from getting too serious.
The end result is a movie that is schizophrenic in that it seems to want to work as a horror film AND as a comedy. Ultimately, "Club Dread" is too violent to be funny and too much of a wanna-be yukfest to be truly frightening.
In trying to achieve two goals, the movie fails at both.
The performances of actor/director Jay Chandrasekhar and the other members of Broken Lizard lack the anarchic glee and razor sharp wit that made "Super Troopers" a "must see and then see again" classic. Bill Paxton plays an always-sloshed Jimmy Buffet-style singer whose resort is the center of the action. One wonders if he wasn't drunk out of his mind, when he agreed to this role.
I have high hopes for Broken Lizard and hopefully their third film outing will see them on surer footing. As for this movie, a better title would be "Club Dreadful."

At first,i didn't like this movie.i just didn't see the point.i mean
there was next to no plot.lots of nudity,drunk people doing really
silly things.and of course a psycho killer stalking people.there are
lots of crude and raunchy situations,which,depending on your taste,may
not be a bad thing.i think it's basically a parody of your typical
slasher flick.the style of the movie(if you can call it that)reminded
me of the very early Friday the 13th movies and also April fool's
Day.as a parody,i think it does work.i did not find it insanely funny
or anything,but i did find the absurdity of it somewhat amusing.there
is not much in the way of acting involved,or even necessary here.it's
just that type of movie.anyway,at some point,i did become engrossed in
the film,and was curious as to who the killer was.and believe me,there
were a lot of suspects.this movie was sort of like a train wreck.i just
couldn't stop watching.slightly entertaining,at times,but just
barely.by the way,for a movie that is just as raunchy and crude,and
also hysterically funny,you might want to check out Repli-Kate.as for
Club Dread, my rating is a 2/5

It took a while to get going, but after the set up, the jokes start coming pretty regularly and some of them are pretty funny. There is not, however, one scene in this movie that is even close to as funny as the first scene in Super Troopers.
There seems to have been some confusion as to whether or not this was a horror movie. I cannot begin to comprehend how anyone could see it as such. Gore does not equal horror. Is it scary? No. Is it supposed to be? No. It is just a horror parody, much like the "Scary Movie" series but not as broad and zaney.
I do really like Broken Lizard as a comedy ensemble. They play off of each other really well. The timing is great, the humor is silly. Each one of them really has something that compliments the group as a whole. I also really like quite a bit of the writing. Some of it is kind of stupid, yes. But it always stays away from all Hollywood cliche and it sounds fresh - as in, not stale, like most of the Tinseltown cookie cutter crap that calls itself comedy.
If you liked Super Troopers, you will like this movie less, but you will still like it. Good, silly, fun from good, silly comedians.

This movie is the shiznit. I know everyone says Super Troopers was better, but that's because they didn't think this would be a different movie. I like the way they were able to make such big character transitions for this. It really amazes me how people didn't like it because it was also a horror movie. They stepped into a territory that many can unsuccessfully stay in, but I think they really pulled it off. The characters and dialogue were pretty funny, especially Machete Phil. That scene surprised me. I couldn't believe what I had seen. These guys are the funniest group since Kids in the Hall and Trey Parker and Matt Stone. No movie scares me much anymore so I watched this to laugh, see some gore, and also, unexpectedly, see the diversity of characters they can play. I'm really surprised with Kevin Heffernan. He seemed natural as Farva, and then he is very smart in this one. I liked Putman because his humor was more of a subtle thing than blatantly obvious like the others. Him and Jenny was a hilarious running joke. The killer surprised me. I didn't expect it to be him. He really creeped me out. This movie is definitely worth a purchase, and also people should watch it like they have never seen Super Troopers. It can still be very entertaining. I hope to work with Broken Lizard one day. They inspired me to pursue my dream of making movies, one I had been debating over for a long time. Thanx guys if u ever read this review. Keep up the good work and I hope to see your next movie pretty soon.
