Is "Zombie Strippers" any good?

I really wanted to see this with it's Grindhouse type look to it and of course as a major horror fan, Robert Englund. IS this movie any good? Is it funny or just lame? Scary of boring? Does it actually have the Grindhouse exploitation feel or not?

It has kind of a goofy, dumb sense of humor. Lotsa gore. Lotsa boobs. Not really much "horror", though. If you think you might dig a movie called Zombie Strippers, you'll probably find it worth renting.

I wrote a review, if you're bored: http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/35033/zombie-strippers/

I'm sold by the title alone plus I liked the trailer....
Robert Englund? Jenna Jameson? Zombies? Gore? Strippers? Boobs? Sounds gold to me....

You see all those things that pop in your head when you hear the title? Yeah, it's kinda like that.

This stuff makes TROMA look like George Lucas.

I already own The Beyond so I'm not worried about the re-release....
Plus I'd rather pick up the Pieces 2 disc over this....

Watched this last night, all in all not bad. As others have stated, it pretty much delivers what you'd expect from a film titled "Zombie Strippers". But my only lasting impression was "wtf happened to Jenna Jameson???". I had to go thru all the chicks before I finally realized she was playing Kat. Too bad she didn't make this 10 years ago.

i rented this. it wasn't great. campy sure, but it was just too dumb even for my tastes (i much preferred "Silent Night, Deadly Night" that i watched after).

the CGI effects sucked bad, real bad (they didn't even shoot squibs i don't think, it was just like a flashlight going on and off and the head blow ups were retched, but the physical/cosmetic special effects were pretty decent.

it just felt very low budget while pretending to be higher budget, if that makes sense at all.

So I finally watched Zombie Strippers tonight. It ruled! It was so lame yet so awesome. The sad thing was Jenna had the best acting in the movie which is the saddest thing I've ever heard of. Anyways if you like horror/comedy crossovers, campy movies, over-the-top gore fest or even cheap B Zombie movies... check this out.

7/10
