Zombie Strippers (2008)
A covert group of military commandos are summoned to deal with a chemical outbreak that is turning people into zombies. It’s a tough job, and one zombie manages to escape. To hide out in a nearby illegal, underground strip club, in case you didn’t guess.
In the strip club, the expected bitchiness escalates to new levels when one of the dancers is attacked, and becomes a zombie herself. The insane appreciation of the customers persuades more girls to succumb to the undead, until eventually the inevitable surge of zombies threatens to destroy all…
This sounds ridiculous, right? I mean, the title says it all: Zombie Strippers.
And yet this film is very entertaining, although not particularly ground breaking. There are quite a few laughs, and tons of gore. Zombie Strippers is totally over the top, and decides to deliver as many thrills as possible. Having said that, there are enough wry winks at the camera (and pseudo philosophy) to show that the film makers at least tried to give this movie some substance.
On the whole the performances are excellent. Robert Englund (yes, him) is great as the utter scum bag club owner, and seems to be having lots of fun with tongue wedged in cheek. Jenna Jameson also does a commendable job, showing her glamorous skills and really getting her teeth into her part. You can tell that Jenna also knows this film is mental, but damn it she puts on a great show.
And let’s face it, the titillation is always going to be a big draw for this movie. The girls are gorgeous indeed, but not for long. Soon all hell breaks loose and any sexiness is right out the window.
So keep your mind open and you might be pleasantly surprised by Zombie Strippers. It’s far better than you might fear. But if it’s cheesy, over the top blood and gore you’re after, you’re gonna love it.
