Adding to the relatively obscure list of movies in the stripper horror sub-genre is Sevé Schelenz's Peelers. After having it's world premiere at the Palm Beach International Film Festival in April, the film is slated to have it's Canadian premier at the Shock Stock Film Festival in Ontario this month. Judging by the trailer (which you can check out below), it looks like Peelers is going to be a bloody, campy, good time.
From The Press Release:
Independent Horror Feature Film PEELERS to have CANADIAN PREMIERE at Shock Stock Film Festival, London, Ontario (May 27th – 29th).
The makers of the Independent Cult Horror Feature SKEW (2011) step it up a bloody notch as they continue their amazing festival run with follow-up horror flick PEELERS.
PEELERS - What starts out as the last hurrah on the closing night of an infamous small-town strip club, quickly turns into a night of bloodshed when a crew of coal miners shows up and with them a deadly contaminant. Former baseball player and current club owner, Blue Jean Douglas has decided to hand over her bar to a new owner and leave town for good. But Blue Jean’s plans are thwarted when she discovers the magnitude of the epidemic that has been unleashed. With victims piling up, Blue Jean must step up to the plate to protect her family, her friends, and her bar before it's too late and she loses everything she holds dear.
PEELERS destroys the cliché stripper horror sub-genre by giving us a story packed with exciting twists, baseball, strippers of unusual talents and a strong female lead. What’s being described as “Rodriguez meets Tarantino” and “Not just a great indie film, but destined to be one of the funnest films of 2016”, has Director/Producer Sevé Schelenz pretty stoked about giving genre fans a whole new ball game of horror.
