Somehow, lowlife Lucas gets his hands on some or Dr Stewart's (Michael
Clinkenbeard) cancer cure, mistaking it for crack, and feeds it to a few
hookers. Thing is, the stuff doesn't actually cure cancer but turn people
into zombies ... and before you know it, a few strippers (Lyanna Tuameng
as tough-as-nails Dallas, Jessica Barton as bitchy Dakota, Hollie Winnard
as innocent newbie Harley, Juliet Reeves as Pandora), a pimp (Anthony
Headen) and his hookers, bouncer Clive (Valensky Sylvain), the hero Chris
(Sean Harriman) and a few others are caught in a stripclub, and between
some bad jokes, they do everything to fight off the zombies, until Chris
figures he's not yet heroic enough and he heads out into the open to go to
Dr Stewart's lab and fetch the antidote, and since Dallas is not only
tough-as-nails but also in love with him, she accompanies him. At
Stewart's place, an accident happens when all the antidote is injected
into Chris's body, and now he has to let zombies bite him to transmit the
anti-zombi-virus (which actually makes the zombies go up in a bang), and
in the end, for the sake of the last three survivors - Dallas, Harley,
Dakota - he lets himself be eaten up alive.
I don't know what
you think about it, but at least on paper, strippers and zombies sound
like the perfect combination for a sexy, gory adult comedy - yet this film
here misses all marks. Sure, Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! at least at
times tries to be funny (and fails), but in essence it's just a
reactionary piece of horror, in which an annyoingly heroic he-man (Chris)
saves a few damsels-in-distress (the strippers), and while at least one of
the girls shows some guts, it's left to the he-man to make the ultimate
sacrifice. Now even a concept like this doesn't necessarily make a bad
movie, but Zombies! Zombies! Zombies! is incredibly blunt in
bringing its point across, and when it comes to celebrating its he-man
hero, all the parodistic elements are weirdly amiss - and it's not made
any better by the fact that Sean Harriman is such a clean-cut all-American
boy without an ounce of charisma or indeed humour. In fact he's about as
annoying as the rest of the film's shortcomings put together, like the
totally clichéd characters - the big-mouthing but cowardly pimp, the
whores, the strippers with hearts of gold, and so on -, the lack of
narrative originality, the uninventive directorial effort, the lame fight
scenes, and so on and so forth.
In all, not worth your time and money.
