Easily the best movie of the year, so far. Really.

With a hilariously over-the-top B-movie vibe, this nutty gorefest keeps us chuckling all the way through. And underneath the outrageous wackiness, there's some playful thematic wit at work as well.

Enjoyable horror comedy that delivers on the promise of the title, aided by some decent effects and a witty script.

With a budget of perhaps 100, half the movie involves people having their heads ripped off with the rest devoted to porn stars jiggling their plastic boobs before being shot in the head. Someone please shoot me, too.

Jay Lee's wannabe cult flick will draw cackles from forgiving fans of cheap'n'cheesy sexploitation.

Proceed directly to the 'S' section of your local video shop and rent Shaun Of The Dead again instead.

A brilliantly high-concept title and some decent gore aside, you're better off watching the version in your head. It will be infinitely more fun and have markedly improved production values.

It's cleverly done with lots of nods to other zombie films. You'll probably catch it on DVD

Zombie horror is always dark, of course, but not always for the same reasons. Here the darkness comes from a sense of humour that adds layers to the standard zombie pre-sets

Here's a title that lives up to its expectations; Jay Lee's schlockingly funny horror flick is filled with inventive ideas and delivers in spades for fans of the genre

Acting is hardly of great consequence in a movie where everyone involved seems a little too in on the joke, as if distancing themselves from material that would simply be vile if it weren't so outrageously over the top.

It is a serviceable horror comedy that will ride well on [Jenna] Jameson's name recognition until the gag wears thin...

Audience Reviews for Zombie Strippers

Zombie Strippers is a poorly constructed horror film that had the potential of being so much better than what it turned out to be. This film could have been great. Instead it's an awful film with a stupid script and a very poor cast. I mean Jenna Jameson stars in this, and she was porn star for a decade, so what do you expect? Robert England who's legendary role in the Nightmare on Elm Street seri8es has made him a legend in the genre, but with this film it's hard to believe that he would make crap like this, but he has. This is a horrible film that lacks direction and flare. The film is just too cheesy with bad acting to really make it interesting. This could have been good, but the problem lies with its cast that really can't act and despite its interesting idea for a film, it fails to go anywhere and ends up being not interesting. Zombie Strippers is a poor horror film, one that just doesn't have anything memorable or really fun for that matter. This may be a good idea for a horror film, but the result is definitely not impressive. Some comedy horror films succeed at being good, cheesy fun. However, Zombie Strippers fails because it lacks anything truly memorable. As a horror comedy, this one fails. If the film had a better cast, a better, more3 developed script, then I think that this film might have been good. But as it stands this is a mess of a film, one that just doesn't deliver what it sets out in trying to do. With this film there are a lot of boundaries trying to be pushed, but not enough effective horror comedic bits being shown to the viewer. This film just doesn't work. If you want a great horror comedy with loads of gore, watch John Gulager's Feast instead.

With a plot that harks back to 'From Dusk Till Dawn' and even further back 'Vamp' this is the zombie version of that plot, plenty of sexy strippers that use the local scum for food as they keep their little game under wraps. Afew slight changes with the story envolving the military and escaping viruses (as usual) and a small 'Aliens' style rip at the start but its pretty much the same thing minus vampires.

It is an enjoyable flick and I did like it despite my loathing of zombie flicks, the special effects and make up are suitably cheesy and sick but there are also some really nice make up jobs in there too. Plenty of exploding heads, blood and limbs being ripped off bodies hehe the best being a guys cock being eaten by Jenna and another stripper tearing a guys head in half, the bonus of course being its all being done by GORGEOUS strippers like Jenna Jameson, the main reason for my watching the film haha

Not original but good seedy fun, I prefer 'Vamp' with Grace Jones though.

Was not sure about this movie when i started watching it.The acting at the start was utter crap but after 15mins and the story move on to the main strip club the acting got better .Ok this movie is very silly and is tongue n cheek but its got enough gore for horror fans to be happy with.Yes there are alot of boobs floating around but hay it wouldn't be a strip club.....would it.Jenna Jameson acting was pretty good and hee comic timing was great,but hey there no Oscars in this
The man who stoll the show was Mr englund and had many oneliners.
Over all not a bad movie and there lots of laughs along the way,

Oh man, Jenna Jameson's nude scenes in stripping is bloody hot. Director Jay Lee's gleefully gross breasts-and brains barrage (plot: strippers become undead, love it) is committed Z-grade, but knowing quips and the horror/lust mash-up will provide a zombie-gasm for many fans.
Existential toss and Dubya-drubbing do distract, but there is nowhere to look when Jameson nudes up as a bloodied corpse. Whether you dig this grisly sexy dance depends upon your taste for a little bit of sick in your mouth.
