Consensus: Comedy is too hit-or-miss is this slasher spoof.

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

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.

Joe Leydon

Stunningly unfunny.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

This slasher/comedy isn't funny or entertaining.

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.

Peter Howell
Toronto Star

Club Dread is just stupid, period.

The Broken Lizard quintet follows its quintessential cult-comedy classic "Super Troopers" with something like "Ten Little Indians" interpreted by five big imbeciles - a slasher parody three "Screams" and three "Scary Movies" too late.

About as funny as malaria.

Seattle Times

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.

Even if it doesn't really succeed as a thriller or a comedy, the film isn't simply a hack-job either.

I really thought this was funny and a lot different than most comedies. It pretty much took the idea of Scooby Doo and Friday the 13th and made it into a fresh… More
