DVD Review: ZOMBIES VS STRIPPERS (2012)
ZOMBIES VS STRIPPERS
Directed by Alex Nicolaou
Distributed by Full Moon Features
I knew from just the title of this film that I was going to love it. With a title like ZOMBIES VS STRIPPERS, how could you not like this film! Luckily, the movie is just as good as I expected it to be and contains plenty of what the title tells you! Here is the basic plot of the film from the Full Moon website:
The Tough Titty is a strip club that's seen better days. But tonight it's gonna see a whole lot worse. Spider has been losing money on his business for years. Now it's finally getting the traffic he's always wanted...unfortunately, most of his patrons are undead. With a sudden outbreak of the zombie virus, Vanilla, Bambi, and Sugar Hills deal with the disaster the way only a stripper can. Blood and braziers go flying, in this exciting horror-comedy.
This movie is a lot of fun and a great addition to the Full Moon library! The zombie effects are nothing too special, but these aren't supposed to be the rotted flesh, raised from the dead type zombies. These are more of the virus/sickness zombies like in 28 DAYS LATER...except these zombies don't run and they aren't as smart. In fact, if they don't find any living humans to eat, they'll start eating each other!
The acting in ZOMBIES VS STRIPPERS is actually pretty good, and there is a lot of comedy throughout the film. The film starts with a mostly empty strip club, except for the workers, but when the zombie outbreak happens, a couple of different groups come into the club to seek shelter. The first one is a Eli Roth looking dude who is the lead singer of a punk rock band. He is a goof and brings some comic relief to the scenes he is in. Another group that comes in a biker gang, led by a tough biker nicknamed Red Wings, played by actor Brad Potts. He definitely earned his nickname, which I'm sure you will agree after you hear how he earned that name! Actor Brad Potts does a great job and was actually one of my favorite parts of this film. You will just have to watch it to see what I mean, but the way he talks and his great dialog makes for a very enjoyable character. My other favorite part of this film was actress Adriana Sephora, a beautiful blonde with a great set of "acting abilities". Wink, wink! All kidding aside, she is a great actress and is very funny in this film, playing your typical blonde bimbo.
ZOMBIES VS STRIPPERS was a lot of fun and a film I would definitely recommend to anyone that enjoys a great horror/comedy. The DVD is available now from Full Moon Direct and contains the following special features:
