Broken Lizard's Club Dread (2004) is about a pleasure resort off the coast of Costa Rica, called Pleasure island. Pleasure Island is owned by Coconut Pete, a retired singer who spends his days boozing it up with the resort staff, and his nights with the more attractive female guests. But there's a legend on the island, the legend of Machete Phil, who hacked his own winkie off with a machete, and still prowls the island to this very day... Winkieless, and pissed off.
This movie is a lot of fun, and gets right into the goofy mix of nudity, killing and alcohol-induced hijinks in the first few minutes. Bill Paxton plays Coconut Pete, the boozy retired singer who bought Pleasure Island, and there's a bunch of other people who I think made Super Troopers, or were in it, or something. MC Gainey is Pete's bodyguard. Brittany Daniel plays Jenny, the Aerobics Instructor for the island, who looks incredibly good in a bikini. The acting is pretty decent for a horror comedy, which I guess isn't saying much, but hey, it works. There's nudity, and gore, and lots of hot machete action. Plus, Pena-lope, played by Jordan Ladd. She's a gymnast. Yeah. Not much else to say about Club Dread, except it was good, and funny, and even a little scary in spots. I've seen it before, and I'll watch it again, if only to see Brittany Daniel in a bikini. I caught this on MoreMax, one of the Cinemax channels.
I meant to watch the premiere of Superstition on Syfy last night, but I missed it! Cheesedoodles! I did see more of Exorcist, which is slowly building up to the plot, I guess. I saw Inhumans again, which still has the royal family running around hawaii, trying to find each other. I hope they don't keep this up for long. Not sure what they'd do once they got together, though. Bemoan the loss of Attilan, and start up a business making surfboards? Too stereotypical for hawaii, perhaps? Yeah.
Okay, that's all I got for tonight, folks. Catch you guys tomorrow night!
