Following up their breakthrough film, 2001's Super Troopers, the Broken Lizard comedy troupe, comprised of Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske, took aim at the horror genre and delivered Club Dread. Starring the five members of the troupe along with Bill Paxton, the film is set at an anything-goes tropical resort for swingers. When a psychotic killer starts offing the guests with a razor sharp machete, it's up to the staff to hide the carnage, lest they lose the business of the unsuspecting surviving guests. As with Super Troopers and the first Broken Lizard film Puddle Cruiser, Chandrasekhar directs. ~ Matthew Tobey, All Movie Guide

Broken Lizard takes an island holiday by talltale June 3, 2004 - 7:43 AM PDT

CLUB DREAD is another Broken Lizard comedy. If you're a fan, you'll probably like it; if not, not--although this one strikes me as easier to take than the troupe's other films like "Super Troopers." It's a bit more conventional in its humor, because serial-killer comedy (of which there have been several) is by now approaching tried-and-true territory. This film appears to have a higher budget than past BL efforts so it's prettier to look at, and director/actor Jay Chandrasekhar gets better with each new effort. Among the many laughs, the golf cart scene is priceless--and maybe even original.
