A killer terrorizes vacationers and staff members (Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan) at a Caribbean resort owned by a has-been rocker (Bill Paxton).
" In these sensitive, politically correct times, I thought it was refreshing to see a comedy troupe that's perfectly willing to fill the screen with exposed flesh and buckets of blood, in the name of cheap but legitimate laughs. "
" Pure dumb fun. "
" The film still may be too bloody and crass for some, and it's by no means hilarious, but all things considered, Club Dread lives up to expectations, which were never really that high to begin with. "
" Unencumbered by logic or narrative cohesion, the freewheeling lunacy of Club Dread sits squarely in the guilty pleasure zone. "
" A bumptious splatter farce that manages to improve from awful to moderately engaging as its cast is winnowed down to the five guys themselves. "
" A shabby attempt at mixing elements of a teen slasher flick with the lowbrow laughs of a teen sex romp. Neither one adds up to the sum of its whole. "
" A splatter of scenes that relocate the funny-bone in the lower anatomical regions -- sometimes hitting the mark, occasionally a glancing blow, often missing completely. "
" About as funny as malaria. "
" Club Dread is just stupid, period. "
" Doesn't quite capture the devil-may-care feel of a sex comedy. "
" If Project Greenlight ever awarded a movie-making contract to a group of drunken frat boys, it might look something like Broken Lizard's Club Dread. "
" Most of the movie is just blood and bodies, some of the dead, some of them topless, and none of them interesting. "
" Stunningly unfunny. "
" There will be better movies playing in the same theater, even if it is a duplex, but on the other hand there is something to be said for goofiness without apology by broken lizards who just wanna have fun. "
" This is the first movie in years to challenge Ed Wood's Plan Nine From Outer Space for the title 'worst movie ever.' "
