Zombie Strippers! (2008)
Description: The U.S. government creates zombies, the contagion makes it’s way into a strip club, and the name of the film was all you really needed to know in the first place. Based on an Existentialist story, there is more here than meets the eye and I’m not just talking about boobies. There are lots of boobies though, but Sartre!
The Good: The good to be found in Zombie Strippers! is the humor. It has tons of political and social satire but the goofy camp-style of the film keeps it from ever taking itself too seriously. This is exactly the kind of film that people should watch in a drunken group, which is no doubt what the filmmakers intended. Zombie Strippers! is fun, stupid, and enjoyable. Any attempt to take it seriously will rune the magic. Plus, there’s undead strippers crawling around onstage. What more could you want from a film?
The Bad: Dialogue, acting, costumes, lighting, camera work, acting, story, acting - these things are all beyond bad in Zombie Strippers! but no more so than any pr0n you’ve ever seen and this movie is actually funny. The special effects look strictly consumer Adobe level but that's not important with a farce - in fact, it adds to it. Besides….boobies and zombies. See what I mean?
The Ugly: This movie is goofy-licious and fun! No need to besmirch it with heavy-handed cinema critique and anonymous criticism. No one meant for it to be Citizen Kane; it’s supposed to be every bit of ridiculous as it actually is. Just enjoy the damn thing! Boobies, zombies.
Old School: Old school horror fans will probably dig Zombie Strippers! It’s the kind of stupidshit horror spoof that makes a good lead-in for the seriously scary films later on in the night, like Glitter.
New Blood: Steal some alcohol, dl this and have fun.
To See or Not to See? Rent, buy, pirate or con? You may as well buy it because it actually is fun to watch. Not like Edward D.Wood, Jr. film funny, but more like MST3K funny - or maybe a little bit of both. Enjoy this movie! (boobies, zombies)
