KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM follows three best friends (Peter Dinklage, Steve Zahn and Ryan Kwanten) and dedicated LARPers (Live Action Role Players) as they take to the woods to reenact a dungeons and dragons-like scenario fresh out of the mythical Middle Ages. Trouble arises after they unwittingly conjure up some serious evil in the form of a blood-lusting Succubus, from the pits of hell. (c) eOne

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

""Knights of Badassdom" actually delivers everything the 2011 Danny McBride-James Franco comedy "Your Highness" purported to be but fell short on."
‑ Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times
"I've been given a palatable taste of Joe Lynch's Knights Of Badassdom, but I'm now ready for the main course - Lynch's fabled Director's Cut."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"[E]ven while it's apparently not what its creators intended, Knights Of Badassdom is perfectly enjoyable in a low-key way, with sharp performances [...] and a nigh-endless string of cameos"
‑ Sam Adams, The Dissolve
"A one-note joke and a whiff of a story that fails to offer a single reason - literal or metaphorical - why dressing up as a fictional character is enjoyable or rewarding."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, The Wrap
"A spectacular horror comedy never afraid to dabble in the silly..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"This movie about Live Action Role Players (or LARPers) -- men and women who act out Dungeons and Dragons in real settings, in costumes -- is so haphazard it might have been thought up during a game of Mad Libs."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"... the story lends itself to low-cost dragonslaying... Don't look for award-winning performances here, just actors having fun with a brilliant premise. Huzzah!"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson, MovieCrypt.com
"Something went horribly wrong in the translation. Although spirited at times, Badassdom takes on familiar targets, while its escalation of oddity is forced when it isn't confusing."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"While the LARPers are ostensibly treated with affection, the film still repeatedly goes for low-hanging comedy fruit such as the histrionic and incorrect olde-English-speak they use while in-game, an obvious gag that quickly grows tiresome."
‑ Dan Kaufman, Paste Magazine
