Strippers Vs Werewolves (2012, Jonathan Glendening)
I truly can't believe some of the
terrible reviews that this flick has garnered on certain review
websites. I thought that horror fans had more of a sense of humour.
Perhaps, like a rotten corpse to a ghoul, it simply isn't to everybody's
I, however, found it absolutely hilarious, and great fun. Thrills,
spills, gorgeous chicks in states of undress, cameos from horror and
fantasy legends... i fail to see what's not to like. Seriously. Any film
that manages to star Robert Englund (oh, come on, you know who he is!),
Sarah Douglas (Superman II, Return of Swamp Thing, etc.), Barbara
Nedeljakova (Hostel), and Lucy Pinder (Zoo and Nuts magazines.
Regularly. Ask yer dad or uncle) cannot be A Bad Thing. Oh, and the
lovely Ali Bastian off of the Hollyoaks, and Adele Silva from Emmerdale
Farm. And they're both really good!
From the opening scenes, with "Hungry Like the Wolf" ringing in my ears
from the titles and a horny Martin Kemp turning into a lustful
lycanthrope who is dispatched in a singularly original way (the scene
caused me to wonder whether the penis or pen is mightier than the
sword...), i knew i was on a ride that was going to enjoy, and happily
wasn't disappointed. Hot strippers: check. Bloodthirsty werewolves:
check. Needless but very hot cameo by British porn starlet Syren Sexton
(trading here under her real name of Gloria Savage - which somehow seems
more of a made up name) wearing little apart from a crucifix and lace gloves:
Absolute z-grade heaven. Add to this cameos by the likes of Steven Berkoff and
Lysette Anthony, and the promise of a sequel featuring werewolf
strippers vs. vampires... i fail to understand why i can be the only one
who's excited? Good unclean fun. More, please!
