Strippers Vs. Werewolves Blu-ray Review
“Strippers Vs. Werewolves” doesn’t even live up to its name.
After a stripper named Justice kills a werewolf at the Vixens strip club, she accidentally sets a bloody feud in motion. To make matters more complicated, Justice is unknowingly dating a man (Scott) who is part of the werewolf criminal clan. Scattered throughout the rest of the film are a number of subplots involving a love story between a stripper and a bouncer, a character turning into a werewolf, and a key plot involving a supernatural creature hunter and his stripper girlfriend Raven.
With a title like “Strippers Vs. Werewolves,” expectations for high art are obviously pretty low. All that I ask from for a film like this is that the film lives up to its title. Sadly, this movie cannot even accomplish that.
Despite some stylish Guy Ritchie/comic book esque direction and editing, the gory and T&A filled Vs. film is surprisingly slow paced. This low budget horror comedy is more talky than action packed. In fact, aside from the poorly done climactic battle, there’s not a heck of a lot of action here at all.
On the plus side, there are two performances that make ‘Werewolves’ bearable. First off, horror icon Robert Englund makes a small appearance as an old werewolf named Tapper. It’s a tiny scene, but it makes you remember how good of an actor Englund is even in a trashy film like this. The real scene stealer, however, is Marc Baylis as the crazed, cursing, intentionally over-the-top werewolf who loves his job a little too much.
Summary: “Strippers Vs. Werewolves” is better than “Zombie Strippers,” but that’s not saying much.
The film, which is presented in widescreen 1080p, is stylishly shot, but it’s generally a pretty dark and murky looking movie. Still, it looks good enough in hi-def, but it’s hardly award worthy picture quality here.
The 5.1 DTS-HD audio track is nothing to rave about, but it’s adequate.
