A to Z – Zombie Strippers
Last October after watching all the movies on TV before Halloween, I got the idea to do an A to Z on horror movies. I also have a story premise in the back of my head involving horror movies, so this fits into my research for that. So I’m going to talk about random horror movies.
First, I am no film critic, just a person who likes horror movies. And second, some of the posts may contain spoilers. So you have been warned.
Zombie Strippers! (2008)
IMDb Summary: In the not too distant future a secret government re-animation chemo-virus gets released into conservative Sartre, Nebraska and lands in an underground strip club. As the virus begins to spread, turning the strippers into “Super Zombie Strippers” the girls struggle with whether or not to conform to the new “fad” even if it means there’s no turning back.
Cheese factor: High
Gore factor: High
Creep factor: Low
Could it happen? No
Last A to Z post. Gotta go out with a bang. I knew what I was getting into renting this one. Technically it’s rated a horror and comedy. But it’s so flipping ridiculous, it’s one of those movies that make you wish you could get that 90 minutes back. But hey, I watched it for A to Z purposes. Would’ve never rented it otherwise.
There were some funny parts. It starts sometime in the future as George W. Bush (and his VP Arnold Schwarzenegger) is in his fourth term. (Yes, fourth.) He dissolves Congress so they can continue fighting wars in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Venezuela, France and Alaska.
So there were plenty of jokes about that. And the man who spreads the zombie virus, his name is Byrdflough. Say it aloud if it doesn’t click.
And at the end, the military people sent to kill the zombies find the scientist/doctor from the beginning. They say, “It was you.”
“Yes, and…” And he goes into his Scooby Doo monologue; you know where the villain always admits how he did his bad deeds. That was terrific.
So there were things that made me laugh, but there were more over-the-top gore and ridiculous situations. Especially with the zombies eating people, creating more zombies. But I’m pretty sure this movie wasn’t meant to be much more than a cheesy spoof.
This one gets a big don’t-waste-your-time eye roll from me. Well unless you like stupid cheesy crap like this.
Seen any good ‘Z’ zombie movies?
A to Z is done. I’m outta here.
