Critic Reviews for National Lampoon Presents The Beach Party at the Threshold of Hell
An insufferably one-note, postapocalyptic "satire" set in the aftermath of the nuclear destruction of the U.S.
Funnier on paper than in reality, this self-impressed film has the stop-and-go pace of a student driver.
Imagine the cast of "Repo Man" attempting to cast the one ring into the fires of Mordor
Audience Reviews for National Lampoon Presents The Beach Party at the Threshold of Hell
Next stop: 2097. The Threshold of Hell. The Beach Party at the Threshold of Hell is a wildly creative and original post apocalyptic film. The first film that popped to mind when I saw the trailer for this film was Six String Samurai, with less sword play. They both feature the same kind of theme of old America is gone and a new land is being born. They both have main characters wearing suits. They both are about journeys. The resemblances could go on. Whether that film was an inspiration for the film makers here or not, I couldn't tell you. Here you'll find zany character after zany character combined with clever and funny dialogue and entertaining fighting and gore. The viewer follows Tex Kennedy, great great (and so on) grandson of John F. Kennedy. Along with his two robot pals, Quincy and Yul, and the sometimes trusty Cannibal Sue, Tex is out on a mission to restore rightful power the young New America. This journey won't be any typical journey. There's a whole lot of fun to be had with this film. It's on a low scale and rather ingeniously made. It has b-movie qualities which give it a rather warm feeling. From start to finish, this film entertains. The filmmakers did a fine job convincing me that America was truly gone. The film plays out like a "twisted History Channel documentary" with a narrator and clips of "historians" who help tell the story of Tex Kennedy and his pals. Some of the most entertaining scenes in this film come with the character interactions. For example, you've got the great grandsons of Fidel Castro and John F. Kennedy meeting in a jail cell. I could go on and on about many of the films characters but I think you should get the point. This film has finally hit DVD thanks to National Lampoon picking up it's rights. Don't let that fool you though, this film is much, much better than the crap they actually create. It's creative, witty, and certainly NOT the worst thing God ever puked up!
Cheap, stupid and pointless. Hardly funny, it just wanders around aimlessly with no focus. The cast tries, but with material this bad it doesn't matter. It bored me to death.
Very strange, very non-National Lampoon black/offbeat post-apocalyptic comedy that's not really funny but not really bad either. It's sort of a companion piece to Radioactive Dreams--not that anyone remembers that movie but it has that same 80's gritty vibe going on. The most annoying thing is the audio which sounds like it was recorded in a ventilation shaft.
