Zombie Strippers

My sweetie has been having problems with his back. Actually had to go have a cortisone shot yesterday. I stopped off at the video store and picked up a few movies for him, and one for me. I saw the title and couldn't resist.

Zombie Strippers (2008) is absolutely not a movie for kids under 18, so if you're under 18, stop reading now.

No, really. Dude! I'm old enough to be your mother, so I'm telling you to stop reading this and go do your freakin' homework!

Dang kids. O.K. This movie stars Jenna Jameson (porn star)and Robert Englund, of Nightmare on Elm Street fame. Review from Dread Central here. Synopsis: A government-made virus gets out of the laboratory and into a sleazy strip bar. One of the strippers gets bitten by the infected man, and becomes a super-stripper. Mayhem ensues.

A Sony Pictures release, Zombie Strippers is deliberately campy, and absolutely hysterical. I'm torn between being very impressed with the zombie effects, and really impressed by the plastic surgery most of the actresses had on their boobs. Undead, decaying boobs, though, are creepy.

This movie's unrated DVD version has a TON of gore for those of you into that. And, seriously, great zombie effects. Robert Englund is wonderful as the smarmy, sell-his-own-grandma club owner who sees the moneymaking op in having not just one, but a whole stable of undead, rotting beauties dancing for the fulfillment of his pockets. If you needed another reason to rent this, there's a zombie strip-off towards the end of the film. Way too funny!

Needless to say, I enjoyed this for the B-movie it is. Watch it after the kids have gone to bed. It's a hoot!

And in the spirit of the thing, Design Toscano has a cast resin zombie for $89.99 here. He'll look lovely in the roses, huh?
