    The Broken Lizard guys don't so much send up a genre as inhabit it, and subvert it from the inside.

    The group has a distinctive deadpan style; after you get on their wavelength, it's impossible to quit chuckling.

    This genre-busting hybrid is a scattershot affair - bad jokes land with a thud that seems to echo, but the winning ones prompt hearty laughs.
  4. It is really gory, for the record -– though it's too silly and insufficiently twisted to slake the appetite of the hardcore gorehound, it's not something to take a kid to.
  5. The new parody from the comedy troupe Broken Lizard, takes another swipe at the corpse armed with the same old weapons. This time, rigor mortis has set in.
  6. A slasher spoof of sorts, except that unlike the "Scream" pics, scant effort seems to have gone into the spoofing aspect of the story.
  7. Studios can release movies even more insultingly dumb, crudely assembled and cheaply produced than this one, though such an achievement will require some effort.

    Both funny and scary, this was one of the first "horror" movies i've watched! I think the story is dumb... at the end the killed forgot why he was killing (No spoiler here)....May be that's why this movie is comedy as well... The characters are hilarious! So if you're wondering to watch it or not, let me say this if you're expecting some horror movie with deep story then Don't watch it if you're looking for a fun and exciting movie then this is your choice. I give it a 7/10, because it's one of my childhood classics and i believe it's a great movie for a party with friends. Otherwise i would give it a 6/10... Expand

    This movie has some funny moments and plenty of good deaths but the writing really wasn't all that funny and there were a couple of characters that you wanted dead that didn't die. The film is certainly entertaining so I'd recommend watching it if there really is nothing else to watch but it's no gem. Expand
