Plot: Three pals move into a haunted house in the Hollywood Hills. Full summary » |  »

Story: Three naïve guys, in their 20s, drive from Illinois to LA. A sleazy real-estate agent gives them a great deal on a house in the Hollywood Hills. The night they arrive, a solitary Mexican, who speaks only Spanish, tries to warn them that the place is possessed by Satan. They don't understand him, move in, and plan a party after they meet Lucy, their gorgeous neighbor from down the hill. An old friend of theirs, studying to be a priest, joins them. In the basement is a portal to Hell, so at the party, guests meet their end in various ways. Lucy and her friends may not be who the lads think. Is there any hope for these innocents? Maybe their neutered dog can help.Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

    Idle Hands meets Dude, Where's My Car. Sure Killerpad isn't as fun asEnglund's directorial debut 976-EVIL, but still he did a pretty goodjob making a simple teenage horror comedy. Sure it's predictable, sureit's everything but subtle and of course it's just allot of nonsensethrown together. But what did you expect to see? Especially when youput Killerpad next to recent comedy's like Epic Movie, Date Movie orLittle Man, it's pretty nice to see a teenage comedy that cán actuallymake you smile once and a while. The film has some pretty funnymoments, especially when Joey Lawrence pops up and makes fun ofhimself. The three main characters act pretty over-the-top, but instead of being really annoying, they are funny from time to time.

    To make a long story short, Killerpad is nowhere near a great movie,but it certainly has its charm. No hilarious comedy or great fun horrorflick, but pretty entertaining here and there. That's it. Can't wait tosee Englund's next directing job, The Viy.

    I don't get why this movie is getting bashed so hardcore. Were youpeople expecting something like No Country For Old Men when picking upa movie directed by Robert Englund about some 20 something guys gettingout from living their moms and moving to house and partying to getlaid? Sometimes people expect too much.

    Frankly I was surprised this was directed by Englund. I haven't seenhis directorial debut 976- Evil, but the thought of Freddy himselfdirecting a comedy in the vein of Dude Where's My Car is kinda strange.But he pulls it off pretty well, creating many laughable situations.And c'mon, this has Joey Lawrence in it! That's just too awesome!

    Any nitpicks with this? Well, for a teen sex comedy/horror, there isn'tany good nudity. The closest is a guy's butt (in one of the grossestscenes). But let that slide. If you are a fan of movies like DudeWhere's My Car and horror movies, this is one for you!

    This was actually a pretty funny movie.

    The plot is that three slackers move to California, and are given ahouse rental of a small mansion in the hills. There is only one catch.The house is a gateway to Hell. This does nothing to deter theslackers, who proceed to plan a killer party, assisted by a sexy womannamed Lucy (as in Lucifer) and her two friends, Jezabel and Delilah.They also invite their hard partying friend, who is about to become aCatholic priest.

    Well, as you can pretty much guess, the party commences and the demonsproceed to start killing the guests in gruesome ways, including JoeyLawrence, who was on his way to Toby McGuire's house on his way tooblivion.

    Some of the jokes are truly gross, such as the butch female bodybuildergetting sucked into a toilet, or the hapless Mexican gardener whoseattempts to warn the slackers is hindered by his inability to speakEnglish. Very politically incorrect jokes, to be sure, but maybe weneed some political incorrectness.

    If you are looking for a true horror film, this isn't for you. If youare looking for some cheap laughs, this movie works.

    With only his second directorial showing in feature films to date,Robert Englund (best known as Freddy Krueger) brings us 'Killer Pad':the story of three loser friends (Doug, Craig, and Brody) who take upresidence in a haunted house (address: 666 Perdition Road) inHollywood. The house is wicked. Seriously. Coyotes and portals to Hellare included in the price.

    The movie includes a couple small cameos (Lin Shaye and Andy Milonakisincluded), and features a whole host of odd characters (possessedMexicans, S&M midgets, Joey Lawrence?). If you haven't noticed yet, andI pity you if you haven't, this is a comedy. Is it funny? Eh. There aresome good one liners and stupid-funny jokes. But it's pretty much allthe same sarcastic humour we've been seeing from better movies withbetter actors and higher production value over the past few years. I'mactually getting a little bit tired of the unattractive male-centeredmovies. They're fun on occasion (Knocked Up, Superbad), but they'reflooding the comedy market and it only takes one like this to ruin thestreak.

    There's plenty of hot (and not-so) women, alcohol, partying, and crudehumour, but that's about as far as your interest will stretch. It's notUNenjoyable. . . but it's just not very good.

    Final verdict: A pathetic 3.5/10.

    I agree with the comment I just read about this in saying, I don't seewhy this movie got a bad wrap, I thought it was great.

    The only problem I really had was the intense over-acting of Brody, butat the same time, it made it a tad bit funnier. I think Englund did anamazing job with this film, probably one of the best horror-comedyfilms I have seen in a while.

    The only other thing I could have changed in this movie was the reallylame "lets dress up a dead body to make it look alive again." Weekendat Bernies could do it and make it funny, this movie didn't.

    I liked the cameo by Bobby Lee, he made the movie just that much morefunny. But then again, you could put Bobby Lee in anything and it wouldmake it funny.

    Midgits, Pornstars and Satan, what more could you ask for?

    Wow, uh, yeah. What the hell was this. It looks like maybe the peoplewho made this move had fun making it, but this sure was, wow just bad.

    The over-the-top acting and stupidity was obviously intentional, whichisn't as bad as some movies who don't even realize how bad they are,but it was just as stupid.

    There were also lots of weird sexual-homoerotic things going on here. Idon't really know what the hell the deal was, maybe Freddy Kruger(Robert Englund, who played Freddy Kruger, directed this masterpiece)is into that. Also, as mentioned by some other reviewers DanielFranzese, who was in Mean Girls, has his stomach wrapped in cellophanein a hot tub scene. There is no explanation or rhyme or reason to it,its just that the lower half of his torso is wrapped in cellophane forwhatever reason. Yea.

    The one positive thing this movie has going for it is the death of JoeyLawrence. ANY film the kills Joey Lawrence earns at least a couplestars. But there really isn't anything else positive to say. AndyMilonakis is also in this movie, I think just a handful of people in LAwho didn't happen to be working just got together to make this weirdmovie.

    To be franc, this has been one of the most unpleasant experience I'vebeen through as a movie enthusiast. "Killer Pad" seems to be summingall worst parts in cinematography: from poor newbie actor and awfullines to dull a script (three good friends move into a new house whichseems to be the dwelling of the devil, wow, how original). To top that,this film also includes a lot of grouse and pathetic scenes which, ofcourse, the directors thought would be very funny.

    Don't mean to be uptight or something, but this movie is really crap..In fact, it's more than that, it's an insult to the whole independentfilm making industry. To sum it up, don't waste your time…
