Peelers (2016)


06/15/2017: Update Update! Look for new DVD, Blu-ray, and VOD release details at the end of this post


I have some very exciting news, everyone!

Director Sevé Schelenz contacted me recently with a press release for his latest film: Peelers.

This Vancouver, BC independent feature will have it's Canadian premiere at Shock Stock Film Festival in London, Ontario on 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 smalltown 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.

How Awesome Does This Sound? It Sounds SUPER AWESOME!

In April of this year, Peelers made it's world debut at the Palm Beach International Film Festival where it was also nominated for Best Horror Film. Just a month later the film festival screening list continues to get longer. Check out if Peelers is coming to a film festival near you here.

Now my pretties, check out this teaser trailer!

I'm very excited for this film and I look forward to providing a full review. I'll let you all know when I do!
