What the hell is it with the recent genre films with “vs” in it? There’s NINJAS V ZOMBIES, NINJAS VS VAMPIRES, VS. THE DEAD, and a slew more that I don’t care to remember. Next up is Jonathan Glendening horror-comedy, STRIPPERS VS WEREWOLVES, coming out of the UK. As the film’s producer Jonathan Sothcott puts it:
As our sales agent Kaleidoscope unleashes Strippers vs. Werewolves at the American Film Market next week, we thought we’d share the official sales art, showcasing gorgeous werewolf killers Barbara Nedeljakova, Ali Bastian, and Adele Silva. I know this film is going to appeal to the 14-year-old boy in all of us, and trust me — it delivers!
I like appealing to the 14 year old kid in me (although my wife tells me I do that a lot), and I like the fact that the word ‘strippers’ is right in the title. Here’s the plot synopsis:
JEANETTE, the club’s careworn owner, believes murdering customers is bad for business, so she orders the club’s bouncer to quietly dispose of the body. And there the matter should end … if Mickey hadn’t been a member of a bloodthirsty and vengeful pack of werewolves.
When Mickey’s corpse surfaces, JACK FERRIS, the werewolves’ charming and vicious leader, swears bloody vengeance and sends his pack out to hunt down the killers. Little does he know, Justice is actually the fiancée of his second in command, SCOTT. To make matters worse, Justice bites Scott during sex and now may be infected with the curse of lycanthropy herself.
Add to the mix werewolf BARKER, the masturbating man-child; SINCLAIR, the occultist with low self-esteem; and a bevy of the most beautiful women this side of heaven and you have the perfect recipe for balls to the wall, frenetic, skimpily clad, strippers on werewolves action-packed goodness.
STRIPPERS vs. WEREWOLVES – stripping has never been this hairy.
Sounds like it could be pretty good. Check out the new sales one-sheet (upper left of this post) and some stills from the film. This is getting an American release next week.
