Movie Review: Zombie Strippers!

I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flick, honestly. Like always, I hoped for the best and feared the worst. It came recommended to me as a campy zombie flick starring Jenna Jameson and Robert Englund (and a horde of other porn stars). That, when combined with the cinematic beauty of zombies, could be a recipe for sheer awesomeness.

However, while I won’t go that far, it is everything it promises. The writers didn’t just aim for nihilistic undertones: Jenna Jameson reads and quotes Nietzsche. I was forced to pause it because I was laughing too hard. The dialogue, while obscenely witty, tends to be a little too politically topical and pointed. The military jargon floated around a the beginning (and end) is a little irritating, but doesn’t last too long. If you can sit through it, the movie improves dramatically. Robert Englund plays the creepy strip-club owner well, with many memorable lines (“Get away from me, you walking herpie, you!” Oh yeah, that’s the stuff). A good old fashioned ‘Badgers? Badgers?! We don’t need no stinking badgers!’ comes into play, none the less. The eighties movie references don’t stop there, making it just that much funnier. Probably the most entertaining bit is that it all takes place in Sartre, Nebraska. Yeah. Deep.

There is, by writ of the title, a lot of tits; if that’s your cup of tea, it doesn’t disappoint (unless you’re more interested in seeing traditional actresses bare all). The stripping is no more provocative than in any other R rated flick featuring strippers.

The fact that the guy who spreads the zombie virus is named byrdflough (bird flu) is a nice little pun that doesn’t get in the way too much. The humor is a little over the top, but hey, that’s what I was expecting.

There is just enough plot to keep it interesting even if half of the movie is various strippers doing their thing.

The movie should be fine sober, but basically amazing after two or three pints. I know I’ll never think about undead ping-pong the same way again. It’s brilliant in the satirical way that Epic Movie or Meet the Spartans wants to be funny, plus porn stars and zombies.

Seriously? Check it out.

3.5/5
