Sugababes are only sweet on the outside., 5 November 2010
Author: tyler-and-jack from Edinburgh.

Candy Stripers is a bad movie and yet it's not all that bad in many ways. It has some gore in there and some teasing nudity to please undemanding genre fans but, sadly, the whole thing adds up to something much worse than the sum of it's parts.

Directed, and co-written, by Kate Robbins, this movie is one that could so easily be slated and ground into the dirt if it was directed/written by a man. The plot is as simple as any other "Body Snatchers" style tale. Some women are taken over by an alien entity and start wreaking havoc in a local hospital. It is there that the nurses (the Candy Stipers of the title) are quickly taken over. They have to keep taking lots of sugar while hunting down young men to ensnare and kill. Some of the young men in the hospital eventually figure things out and start concocting a plan to escape and/or destroy the creatures.

It's just "must try harder" in every department for this film. The acting is okay at best but often pretty terrible, not helped by a script that throws in the worst it can whenever the opportunity arises (such as a noisy encounter that doesn't even wake up someone's room-mate, a number of poor characterisations and the obligatory drawn out chase sequence - this time with someone IN A WHEELCHAIR still managing to stay ahead of a pack of hungry alien women).

Even at the most simplistic level, the movie doesn't even capitalise on it's greatest assets (no sniggering please). The playmates and other attractive women on screen tease and tease but rarely provide anything more than another poor line reading and a reason to root for the good guys.

Occasional good effects and an attractive cast save this from scoring any lower but it's a movie best forgotten while you have any other options and don't be fooled into giving it a try even if you (as I do) like films such as Species and Decoys. This is nowhere near as much fun as those movies.
