The movie stars horror icon Robert Englund (of Nightmare on Elm Street fame) and porn-legend Jenna Jameson (of... well... porn fame), so there is some fanboy fun to be had here, but surprisingly has no sex scenes whatsoever. The worst you'll find here is nudity and torn flesh, which is pretty typical of any other horror movie these days. What makes the film worth watching is how the virus makes the strippers perform. There are dance moves and acrobatics (and sure, some semblance of a plot) that will leave you uninterested in our own reality's version of gentlemen's clubs. Don't be fooled, though - this half-risque/half-horror film is purely for the sake of laughs. Not much is scary and not much is actually something to be turned on by, but how often do you get to see zombie strippers? Isn't the point of film the show us what we can't see in our own reality? And boy, does this film show it!
Like I've said before in previous articles, I don't have a list of my favorite movies ever that I pick from and I'm not running down the 100 picked by AMC. I simply go through my week, try my hardest to find a five minute break to write an article (more like a few hours), and see what movies come to mind that are of entertainment, not necessarily critical, value. There is something here for everyone (an award winner, an action adventure, a character piece, a comedy, and even a movie about zombie strippers). You should probably watch some of these first before judging my selections, since I'm sure you'll like at least one of these, but if you're mind is already made up and you don't think any of these are for you then check back next week for another random selection of films I'm fond of.
