Club Dread


(2004) ***1/2
Imagine an island resort with a rowdy, up-for-anything staff, and nothing to do but bask in the sun and party all day and all night. What could possibly go wrong? On this island, though, a slasher is on the loose, terrorizing the staff while insisting if they tell the guests about the danger, everyone dies.
While this is no Super Troopers, Club Dread is an entertaining spoof of slasher movies with a real body count and whodunnit feel, lightened with plenty of humor. Bill Paxton fits right in as the club's owner Coconut Pete, a washed-up musician best known for his beach-and-partying hits of the seventies. Just don't mistake him for Jimmy Buffett and ask him to play Margaritaville.

Nice one AC I would have never thought to pick this film but your right on the money. Good fun comedy horror.

Sounds fun. You reminded me that I didn't watch a single slasher this year. :(
