As this latest episode in the age-old battle between strippers and werewolves plays out, I think we all know who the good guys are. Things have been quiet since the explosion of the Silvadollaz strip club back in 1984, but that all changes when one dumb brute goes all hairy during a private dance with "Justice" (Adele Silva) inside Vixen's. One silver fountain pen to the eye later, a werewolf lies dead and Vixen's owner Jeanette knows that her girls and her club are in danger. There's not a lot of good you can say about werewolves, but you can't say they aren't loyal to their pack. Once they find out how their mate died, it's on.

When these strippers signed on to dance, they knew they would have to deal with some potentially dangerous - even hairy - guys, but I'm pretty sure that werewolves were not mentioned anywhere in their contracts. Never underestimate a stripper, though - especially Justice, as she's even able to turn a complicating and potentially disastrous complication to the girls' own advantage. There are a few subplots that make this movie a little more interesting (strippers are people, too, you know) and there's a fair share of comedy sprinkled throughout, but in the end it's exactly what the title says - Strippers vs. Werewolves.

Here's a list of things to be aware of before watching this film. Robert Englund basically has a cameo scene and that's it; there's not much in the way of actual stripping; and the special effects (especially the werewolf makeup) aren't going to win any awards. There's some blood and gore, but this isn't really a horror film. It's pure camp, and you probably already know whether you're the type of person who would enjoy it. I thought it was pretty decent.

I was given this film as an "ironic" gift as I like the comic/mock-horror film genre (The Cottage, Cabin In The Woods, Cockneys -vs- Zombies, Shawn of the Dead & etc), and, as such, I had no preconceptions of this film, other than not to take it too seriously.

In summary, the film contained misogynist gangster werewolves and a group of strippers who manage to become sworn enemies. This film is cheesy, definitely silly and boast a far more respectable cast than would be expected... I was particularly pleased to see Alan Ford in another outing... (also in Cockneys -vs- Zombies.

This is not art, it is a very entertaining mock-horror film, with several comic twists and a bucket or two of blood and guts.

You don't have to analyse this film to enjoy it.

Okay, I wasn't expecting a film with the calibre of The Godfather. I kind of knew what I was getting when watching a film entitled `Strippers vs Werewolves.' However, I was at least hoping for some stupid, cheesy fun with plenty of gore and chuckles.

Unfortunately, this film doesn't deliver on any of it. I had at least reasonably high hopes, based on watching another couple of similarly-themed films: `Zombie Strippers' and `Strippers vs Zombies.' Neither of them were exactly Shakespeare, but they were at least entertaining in a totally dumbed down way (which was all I was expecting). However, Britain's attempt to cash in on this B-movie genre really doesn't take off.

For a start, the acting is bad. Yes, it's a low budget horror B-movie, but I was still hoping for a little less wooden performances. Secondly, the werewolves are about as scary as a dog you'd see hanging out of Paris Hilton's handbag. Thirdly, it's just not particularly funny. Fourthly, you won't give a damn about a single character and, finally, there's not that much gore (or at least for about ninety per cent of the movie).

In all, it's a film trying to get people to see it, based on its blatantly cheesy name. If you look this film up on the internet, you'll notice that it only took £38 at the UK box office. I'm guessing that was one person who watched the film and who bought about £30 worth of popcorn and sweets.

Is there no film that Billy Murray won't star in?

To a certain extent it is a concept that has been done before - and tends to be more funnier on paper than actually on film - but while Strippers vs Werewolves struggles to find its right tone or story structure there are more than a few moments to enjoy. Often the set-ups and dialogue can be engaging, but when director Jonathan Glendening gets into the action the film tends to fall apart.

The opening scene provides an excuse to play Duran Duran's Hungry Like A Wolf, and there is a werewolf howl as the $ilvadollaz club in Basildon explodes in 1984.

Fast forward to 2011 and in a nice cameo a werewolf at a pole dancing club (played by Martin Kemp, formerly of Duran Duran's rival 1980's new romantic band Spandau Ballet...and Eastenders) is stabbed in the eye with a silver fountain pen - her dad gave it when got GSCE exams - by exotic dancer Justice (Adele Silva).

Her actions - she thought she was just fighting off an overly hairy punter - sets in motion a bloody feud between the strippers and a pack of London werewolves, headed by Billy Murray. Fore good measure there are also some vampires and other assorted demons thrown in for good measure.

There are some amusing lines - `she had such great legs...have you found the other one...' - and nice performances by some of the dancers (especially Ali Bastian as Dani, who romances bouncer Franklyn by giving him a pair of knuckle dusters), but the film lets itself down by shoddy monster effects...as if it can never quite work out if it is playing it just for laughs or should be a real genre affair.

Cameos from Robert Englund, Steven Berkoff, Lysette Anthony and Sarah Douglas help a little, but never enough to help the film become little more than playful low-budget genre affair. In a bid to appeal to the fan crowd there is also a cameo from Bizarre magazine writer and horror fan Billy Chainsaw. It is also worth noting that there is never actually any stripping...just some mild exotic dancing.

Dont take this too seriously, some memorable scenes, ouch at the biro effect, surprising who pops up in this flik - most from eastenders. LoL. Neat special effects, always looking out for these as an FX enthusiast. The sniffer werewolf - FETCH!
dotted with comic moments throughout, especially the yank stripper who has plenty of balls, especially when fending off the werewolfs. On the whole a comic and interesting idea on the usual werewolf genre.

How on earth did they get the money to make this rubbish. At first appearance you are fooled it does not have a bad cast. It's obvious some actors prefer to make rubbish and get a quick few quid. I would not recommend this to anyone, please stay clear and watch something more entertaining perhaps (paint drying).
