According to its Facebook page and a post on Fangoria, British horror-comedy Strippers Vs. Werewolves has wrapped and will be released sometime before Spring 2012. The last time I posted about this film I was pretty mean, but I think I had just cause: there were no details on casting or story, and the poster/concept art was… not encouraging. But all of that has changed, and (as I’ve so often done lately) I am retracting some of my shitty comments.
A new poster has been released, which Fangoria describes as “Ali Bastian as stripper Danni, aiming a shotgun at Martin Kemp as werewolf Mickey”. It looks fun, and it’s certainly more evocative and stylistically interesting than previous posters.
On the casting side of this, I’ve spotted two names that I’m kind of excited about: Robert Englund and Alan Ford (bonus points if you can guess which werewolf movie Ford was in without looking at his IMDB page). Also appearing: Barbara Nedeljakova, Sarah Douglas, Adele Silva, Lucy Pinder, Ali Bastian, Steven Berkoff, Nick Nevern, Danica Thrall, Simon Phillips, Billy Murray and Joe Egan.
And what’s the film about, other than the obvious?
When werewolf chief Mickey is accidentally killed in a strip club the girls who work there have until the next full moon before his bloodthirsty wolfpack seek murderous retribution…
Okay, yeah, I’d watch that. Would you?
Yes you would.
