Zombie Strippers (Unrated Special Edition) is one of those unbelievably “so bad it’s good” horror/comedies that really, really does try hard to be serious. It gives it’s all to entertain AND teach a lesson. *shrugs* Well, it accomplishes half of that at least.
Zombie Strippers, starring Jenna Jameson and Robert Englund, tells the story of a futuristic world where George Bush has won his 4th term to presidency (scared yet??) and the terror alert is at a whole new record high. There are wars not just in the Middle East but Europe too. Nudity has been banned and the government has started a project in which they hope to devise a way to re-animate dead soldiers. Because zombies + war = awesome? Anyway, since the government has this ridiculously bad idea and it IS a horror movie, they of course come up with a virus that leads to zombie-dom. The zombie testing goes awry (duh), leading an escaped and bitten soldier to a quaint little strip club run by Robert Englund, where Jenna Jameson is the star stripper. There’s dissension amongst the ranks as one stripper is highly jealous of Jenna and Robert Englund is a fastidious, creepy hypochondriac who’s also bordering on the sadistic side. Enter the new girl at the club, a sweet Christian girl who’s only trying her hand at this so she can afford her Nana’s operation. (There really aren’t better ways to do this, sweet Christian girl, than to be an illegal stripper??) Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse in this little slice of heaven, Mr. “I’m About to be a Zombie” shows up. Next thing you know, he’s attacked Jenna, who in turn becomes a zombie. BUT…..wait for it……a zombie with a goal: to be the best damn stripper there is. And apparently being a zombie turns you into one hell of a stripper.
After this point the movie consists of stripping….really cool special effects stripping….dancing….more stripping….nakedness (due to the stripping)…..and occasionally the eating of human flesh, since you know, it’s a zombie movie and all.
Big laughs, small scares and a perfect waste of your time if you’re a fan of cheesy horror.
