Zombies Vs. Strippers
Written & Directed by Alex Nicolau
Oh, those Full Moon Fellas are at it again. This low-budget quickie follows a group of employees and patrons of the classless Tough Titty strip club in California who find themselves trapped when the zombie apocalypse breaks out on the streets. It begins as a party, then becomes a business opportunity, and finally evolves into a fight for their lives.
Zombies. Strippers. Sounds like a no-brainer, right? Well, if you mean completely brainless, then yeah, you're right. There's not a chance in hell that the undead could feed on this film.
The characters are paper-thin stereotypes that we're already overly familiar with: the sleazy strip club owner; the bouncer with a soft spot for the girls; the stoner; the badass blaxploitation bitch; the post-apocalyptic biker gang. They're exactly what you'd expect from a first-time filmmaker. It's just too bad that Full Moon has been making movies for decades.
The action is lame, the special effects forgettable, and the acting generally piss poor. The gore is ineffective, leaving the sole selling point the T&A that the title promises. How disappointing. It is there, don't get me wrong. You just won't be able to see it. The lighting throughout the entire movie is atrocious, and nearly every damn thing is obscured by shadows.
I believe in Full Moon. It's just hard to believe that the current incarnation of the company are the same people that brought such joy to my childhood. Lately it's been one disappointment after another.
