Club Dread (2004)
Don't Underestimate the Brilliance of this Film
Super Troopers was a refreshing and intelligent comedy the likes of which we have not seen since Fletch. It brought these guys to the forefront of the film comedy world. Are we surprised that their follow up film wasn't the same? Are we surprised that it didn't hit us on the same level? At first, yes. After watching the film a few times and really thinking about the comedy behind it, it is apparent that the brilliance of this team comes out in the sense that they tried something different - even to the point of turning Officer Farva into the "likeable lead". Don't underestimate these guys. Watch Club Dread for what it is. Really watch it - and listen. I mean, come on, PinaColadaburgh? Phil Coletti - Machetti Phil? Peenalope? Wonky-britches? This is comedy at its best. These guys play off each other like the duos of old. The brilliance of this film, and of these guys, is that they took the chance to try something different, to move in another direction. Notice the scene at the beginning when the girl gets her head chopped off. The camera becomes her POV and we see what she would see as her head turns upside down and then hits the ground watching her own body jolt and jitter as it dies. This is actually a frighteningly horrific shot. Just watch this film and laugh - and be scared - and don't worry, these guys aren't going anywhere...
