For those with “normal” size T.V.s - up to 36” - even this amount of edge enhancement may go by unnoticed, but surely the most loyal Broken Lizard fans would find the movie practically unwatchable on a projector, or even a sizeable rear projection set. Which is a shame as I suspect that Club Dread will have its fair share of admirers.
Jay Chandrasekhar turns out to be much more amenable - and funny - compared with the Putman tennis pro character that the director plays with such infuriating “Englishness” in the movie itself. Of the two commentaries, though, I would have to pick the second as the more worthwhile, and humorous, of the two.
The only other “extra” is a short trailer advertising Club Dread - The CD. Short and sweet, then!
A low budget Horror/Comedy flick gets a low budget DVD release. Despite the front cover's claim for the movie being “Flat-out side-splitting” - which I guess means very funny - and the rear cover's assurance that Club Dread is “Hilariously funny”, I, rather sadly, find myself in disagreement. Perhaps I've missed the point and failed to view this movie “in context”... then again, perhaps it's just not that funny!
Worth a rental.
