Club Dread is apparently so dreadful that most religious film critics avoided it entirely. The movie follows the amoral adventures of inebriated partygoers when dead bodies start showing up and interrupting their reckless indulgence at an island resort.
Eddie Turner (Movieguide) says, "The movie isn't funny, and it doesn't even try to be. What's worse is that its attitudes toward sex and violence are absolutely revolting and would be off-putting to almost any audience member unlucky enough to stumble across it. Everything about the movie is boring and offensive."
"This sex-and-slasher film has no virtues whatsoever," says Alan Boyer (Preview).
Mainstream critics seem incredulous that such a thing would attract any moviegoers at all.
