Zombie Stippers

Hilariously good gorefest

Zombie Strippers

In this absurd, hilarious gorefest, filmmaker Jay Lee channels Herschell Gordon Lewis, George Romero, and Joe Eszterhas. An opening news montage from the “near future” posits a never-ending Bush presidency and major wars in a dozen nations including Canada. The government has invented a “chemo-virus” that turns people into zombies with superhuman strength, and a soldier who’s part of a zombie-killing unit gets bitten and stumbles into an “underground” strip club (under the new Bush regime, sex is a no-no) whose main act is played by real-life porn star Jenna Jameson. The film wears its feminism, existentialism, and pacifism like rhinestone pasties: you can’t miss them, but you kinda wish they weren’t there. A former stripper and horror-cinema scholar such as myself might be expected to judge such a film harshly. But I found it well-directed, sexy, schlocky, and sublime.107 minutes | Kendall Square
