Peelers (2017) Film Review

Jesse Miller,

MoreHorror.com

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.

Peelers is as Satisfying as a Lap Dance: A Film Review

*full disclosure: an online screener of this film was provided by Uncork'd Entertainment. Director: Sevé Schelenz. Writers: Lisa DeVita and Sevé Schelenz. Cast: Wren Walker, Caz Odin Darko, Madison J. Loos, Cameron Dent and Al Dales. Movie reviews can serve various functions. Sometimes, they can help get more seats filled at the movie theatres. Sometimes, they can save people a bit of time. In the case of Peelers, they can serve as a warning; do not see this film! Unfortunately, the screenplay, from first time screenwriter Lisa Devita, is mostly a miss as one might expect. As well, a portion of the cast are also just as inexperienced. Thus, Peelers misses a lot of its marks, especially in the character and plot department areas. The music, from composer Vincent Mai, which will be discussed first, is often on point. However, almost every other filmmaking element is a swing and a miss.

Movie Review – Peelers (2016)

Peelers, 2016.

Directed by Seve Schelenz.

Starring Wren Walker, Caz Odin Darko, Madison J. Loos, Cameron Dent and Al Dales.

Synopsis:

The owner and patrons of a roadside strip club are getting ready for one final night of fun before the doors close for good and the club is taken over by a greedy land developer. However, as the evening progresses, a group of celebrating mine workers soon come down with a case of the undead and begin to gruesomely kill the strippers and patrons, with the uninfected survivors battling to make it to the end of the night alive.

Yes, it’s me with yet another review of yet another horror film, but this time it’s something a little bit more fun than the usual dreary stuff, as we take a look the very silly oily zombie strip club bonanza Peelers.

The acting on display is hardly going to win any awards,
