MOVIE REVIEW: Zombie Strippers

I just got Bell satellite and for the next two months I get the Super Channel package (consisting of four movie channels) for free! They show tons of horror movies and I also just got a PVR, so I'll have lots of reviews to come. The first horror film I watched is Zombie Strippers.

I don't know what I expected from a movie titled Zombie Strippers. I guess I hoped it would be funnier than it actually is. What you get is zombies and strippers. That's it. Not much humor, or interesting characters or passable dialogue. Just zombies and strippers - oh, and eventually you get zombie strippers.

When the American government develops a virus that brings the dead back to life, a soldier gets bitten by a zombie. Later, he checks out a strip club and ends up biting one of the strippers, Kat (Jenna Jameson). Instead of killing her, the owner of the strip club, Ian (Robert Englund), allows her to continue stripping and she becomes the most popular stripper in the club. Soon all the girls must become zombies to compete and the strip club is making loads of money. Even when the girls start eating/turning patrons into zombies, Ian looks the other way. But soon there are more zombies than humans in the club. Will they be able to kill the zombie strippers before they get eaten?

There isn't much of a plot. As I already mentioned it's about zombies and strippers, and strippers who eventually become zombies.

The characters are all stereotypes - the Mexican janitor, the Christian stripper who desperately needs money for her Nana's operation, etc. This wouldn't matter if they had been funny, but they weren't. And the acting is awful - except for Robert Englund as the sleazy owner of the strip club. At least he has a few funny lines.

There are so many other zombie comedies out there that are actually funny (Shaun of the Dead, Zombieland, Dead Alive, Dance of the Dead, Attack of the Vegan Zombies, just to name a few), so I would skip Zombie Strippers and watch one of those instead.

Rating: 2/5

You have to admit though, the epic zombie stripper battle at the end between Jenna Jameson and the other girl was pretty neat.

Haha, yeah I'll admit that was pretty awesome.

I have just downloaded iStripper, and now I enjoy having the sexiest virtual strippers on my desktop.
