Women have contracted a virus that turns them into zombies after they die and now they are taking over the world. A small band of survivors heading cross-country to the hoped safety of the West Coast are attacked by hordes of the hungry vixen along the way.
Ben Sheppard (Idaho), Jamison Challeen (Frisco), Maren McGuire (Virginia), Ileana Herrin (West), Hank Cartwright (Guy), Daniel Baldwin (Double D), Lloyd Kaufman (Phillip), Linnea Quigley (Grambo), Shel Bailey (Barbara).
Stripperland starts off looking like a cheap, and I do mean cheesy cheap, knock-off of Zombieland and confirms that thought throughout the film. From the dorky guy with weird zombie rules, to the tough guy looking for a special treat, to the two females who join up with them as everyone begins using their hometown as their name, this is a cheap imitation of the original. The big twist is starving strippers being the zombies in this one which sadly, adds nothing to the film leaving it with, well, nothing.
Acting was a mess here with Sheppard delivering a confused mess. Challeen was mildly better but still barely hitting the talent meter. Amazingly, Daniel Baldwin was about the most polished performance, with Quigley coming in second giving her usual B-movie performance.
Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were all cheap, poorly done, and lacking detail. Effects were again cheap but better than expected considering the rest of the film. Dialogue lacked anything resembling energy or coherence, while sound and soundtrack could have been better.
Overall if you like cheap B-movies you will probably enjoy this one a bit. For everyone else beware, watching this one could rot your brain and turn YOU into a zombie!!
With scantily clad women, blood, gore, and violence this should be fine for teens and above.
Stripperland is no longer playing in any Littleton Colorado movie theatres.
