An undisclosed, quiet town, violent, oil-spewing creatures and a strip bar- No, it’s not the setup for a poor joke; it’s the setting for Stephen Sawchuk’s (Sucker Punch and Final Destination 5) gorey, creature feature, Peelers. Filled with terrible puns and various baseball references, this horror flick will have you chuckling and flinching from projectile… juices?
Blue Jean is an ex-stripper and owner of the Titty-Balls bar. Yes, that’s the name. Anyway, on her final night as owner, all she wants is to get out with herself, and her motorbike, in one piece.
Sadly, that’s not in the plans.
Four miners, who thought they’d struck oil, wanted to celebrate, thinking they’d received a blessing. More like an infection! One by one, the men show symptoms of a foreign sickness and every patron of the Titty-Balls bar are in for one wild night!
I don’t know if this movie is considered a spoof, but things seemed a bit exaggerated enough to deem so for this review. The characters were riotous, to a degree and the storyline was okay, but I found myself amused by the vast amounts of blood, infectious fluids and gore. Bodies were cut into large chunks, heads were relieved of their necks and dancing. Lots of dancing. The vibe sync’d with a Tarantino movie, but with a tough, female lead, and a minor subplot.
Peelers isn’t a great movie, but enjoyable as an online stream or cable picture. I did find an appreciation for the ending though; it’s not what you’d expect- with another surprise at the very end, should you choose to watch. What you get is a little longer than necessary, but it shares a bit of information mentioned earlier in the film. Peelers released in April of 2016.
