My Dad, brother and I went out to see this one. When we got to the theater, we were amazed to see that the parking lot was packed. We couldn't believe "Club Dread" was so popular. There was another movie out called "The Passion of the Christ" but we were sure that "Club Dread" must have gotten the majority of the moviegoers. Once inside the theater, we counted ten people watching "Club Dread", including ourselves. Hmmmm..."Club Dread" was not as popular as we thought. It might not deserve the love and attention the Jesus movie gets but it definitely deserves a look.

Coconut Pete's resort is in trouble. A killer is stalking the island. The staff is getting bumped off. Who is responsible? Why is the staff the only victims? Why is Putman dreaming about kissing himself? "Advantage: Putman".

"Club Dread" is hilarious. My brother was laughing his head off. You know something really tickled him if he follows up a loud laugh with a spastic kicking of the seat in front of him. Fortunately, no one was sitting there. As for myself, I was pleasantly surprised that the movie was so good. Normally, mixing comedy and horror turns out to be a bust. The "Club Dread" filmmakers got it just right.

Horror fans should get a kick out of this flick. The filmmakers understood what elements should be in a horror movie. For starters, there were plenty of naked breasts. One word: "PEEN-AAA-LOPE!" She was the horny naked gymnast. All movies are better with a horny naked gymnast. The blood and guts were also flowing nicely. There were severed heads, severed torsos and just about severed everything else. My God, how could you ask for more?

I was thoroughly entertained by "Club Dread". If you are a horror fan, you should check it out. "Club Dread" is one of the best horror/comedies I've seen. It's got blood, guts, breasts, laughs, Putman and PEEN-AAA-LOPE. It's got it all.

SCORE: 3.5 out of 4 Putman parties
