    Most of the time the jokes just aren't that funny. also, it's more of a horror film than the marketing lead me to believe.

    Broken Lizard seems to specialize in making uncalled-for parodies of moribund 1980s movie genres that aren't exactly aching for callbacks. Super Troopers was a fitfully funny, successfully stupid pothead gloss on the Police Academy movie series. This one, however, fails on just about every level. Not only have Wes Craven, the Wayans brothers and David Zucker pretty much squeezed Broken Lizard seems to specialize in making uncalled-for parodies of moribund 1980s movie genres that aren't exactly aching for callbacks. Super Troopers was a fitfully funny, successfully stupid pothead gloss on the Police Academy movie series. This one, however, fails on just about every level. Not only have Wes Craven, the Wayans brothers and David Zucker pretty much squeezed every drop of blood out of the slasher-spoof concept, but Club Dread commits the unforgivable sin of movie parody: it eventually becomes the exact same thing it's satirizing! To add insult to injury, the brilliant 1950s bad-sci-fi spoof The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, which almost completely reinvents the movie-parody genre and was released at virtually the same time, makes this mess look even more like a total failure than it already is. I guess Broken Lizard can go for lambada movies as their next target. Expand

    What the f..k happened here!?!? I loved 'Super Troopers' when it came out! I mean I really loved it! I was waiting for a comedy like that one for a long time. So you can imagine my shock when seeing this one! It's pretty pathetic when you get not even 5 minutes of laughs for a 97 minute movie. As much as I hate it when people say stuff like this...Broken Lizard, go make What the f..k happened here!?!? I loved 'Super Troopers' when it came out! I mean I really loved it!

    With "Super Troopers" and Club Dread, Broken Lizard has cranked out two genuinely funny movies in a row.
  2. 70
    The group has a distinctive deadpan style; after you get on their wavelength, it's impossible to quit chuckling.
  3. A few gags are brilliantly staged, but most have a smug, collegiate take-it-or-leave-it quality that makes full-on belly laughter feel optional.
