Zombie Strippers (2008)
Synopsis: A small town strip club owner must defend her bar; her strippers and her life when violent infected patron’s show up on the final closing night and all hell breaks loose.
Oh my goodness, where do I begin?
Peelers, much in the vein of Zombie Strippers, is a horror-comedy that really goes and pushes hard for an R rating. Its gooey, it’s gory, it’s crude and it pushes these aspects throughout the running time constantly.
To that extent, I was equally grossed out one moment and laughing the next, constantly surprised that the film went to such a lengths for shocks and comedic effect.
Writer Lisa DeVita and director Seve Schelenz seem to be on board with one another as to what the tone of Peelers should be, because as much as it is a horror comedy, it never loses sight of the balance throughout.
Not to be confused with the 2013 film of the same name, which was pulled from Tesco shelves after customer complaints over its graphic sex and violence, this iteration of The Hospital is actually a retitling of 2015′s The Linda Vista Project from director John (J.J.) Rogers – who has worked behind the scenes on numerous Dtv horror flicks previously, however this marks his directorial debut in the genre.
[Sidenote: The Hospital was also touted as a possible supermarket-friendly title for the UK release of Dustin Mills' The Ballad of Skinless Pete, at least until the UK distributor, now a favourite with genre fans, reneged on the contract and the film never saw the light of day]
The Hospital follows paranormal researcher Emily Strand (Whitney Anderson; Zombie Strippers, Toolbox Murders 2), who is given a chance to prove the existence of the supernatural at the now derelict Linda Vista Hospital. Rumours and claims of spectral activity have surrounded the former hospital since it was first built

Sat 5 March @ 10.55pm – Grabbers (2012) *UK TV Premiere
The day after a meteor lands in the ocean and a group of fisherman go missing, Garda Lisa Nolan (Ruth Bradley) and Garda Ciarán O’Shea (Richard Coyle) start investigating strange occurrences happening around the remote fishing community. Pretty soon it becomes clear
The acting is pretty bad, the dialogue is worse and the production quality as a whole bears that unmistakable ultralow-budget, direct-to-DVD sheen, but Zombie Strippers, which bows April 18, could never be accused of failing to live up to its title.
Starring adult entertainment industry queen Jenna Jameson and loosely inspired by Eugene Ionesco's Rhinoceros, Jay Lee's grotesque little horror film makes up for in audacity what it might lack in finesse.
Set at the start of George W. Bush's fourth consecutive term in office, the cautionary tale finds the U.S. military, fighting wars on several fronts, seeking to replenish its dwindling numbers with a chemo-virus that instantly reanimates the corpses of its fallen soldiers.
But the virus ends up finding its way out of the lab and into Rhino's, a small-town Nebraska underground strip club presided over by the obnoxious Ian Essko (Robert Englund). There, it infects its star attraction, the Nietzsche-reading Kat (Jameson), and turns her into a writhing, flesh-eating sensation.
Stripping away all the lame political satire and cutting to the chase, there's admittedly something perversely effective about Jameson and company strutting their undead stuff against the appropriate death metal soundtrack.
It all serves as a warm-up to the main event -- a garish silicone and latex-charged zombie-stripper smackdown that can best be described as George Romero-meets-Russ Meyer with a nod to the 1972 Herschell Gordon Lewis cult classic The Gore Gore Girls.
In the process, writer-director-cinematographer Lee (The Slaughter) just might have stumbled onto something bankable.
Call it strip-quease.
The couple will team up with A Nightmare On Elm Street star Robert Englund for the Jay Lee film about an underground Nebraska strip club hit by a deadly virus that reanimates the dead.
Jameson plays one of the strippers infected, who turns into a supernatural, flesh-eating zombie - the hit of the club.
