Welcome to the world of Strippers Vs Werewolves
Other features in this series:
It could very well be the 'versus' movie to challenge them all. Strippers Vs Werewolves tells the story of... well fairly obviously a bunch of exotic dancers taking on a pack of hungry lycanthropes. Rather than get into the subtleties of nude vs hairy conflict, we thought we'd take a look at the characters behind the story. Hold your horses boys, the Strippers are coming, but in this feature we meet the werewolves...
“No girls allowed”
Cool, calculating and very, very evil, Jack Ferris is pack leader and top dog to the letter. His pack obey him unquestioningly and that loyalty comes from fear as well as respect. Misogynistic (“old fashioned”) and prejudiced against anyone who isn’t a lycanthrope, he sees humans as merely food and playthings. He doesn’t really approve of Scott’s relationship but tolerates it as he sees Scott as the son he never had.
Ferris is played by well-loved British actor Billy Murray, famous from TV series such as The Bill and Eastenders and films such as McVicar and Rise of the Footsoldier. Billy also provides the voice of iconic video game character Captain John Price in the blockbuster Call of Duty: Modern Warfare gaming franchise.
“Send in the guard, I’m hungry”
Like an old school supervillain Tapper plots werewolf domination from his prison cell at HM Chaney. Cold, ruthless and utterly psychotic, Tapper is frighteningly formidable yet a shadow of his former self. When his pack was all but destroyed in the SilvaDollaz inferno, he found himself supplanted by Jack as Alpha Wolf and without a pack to lead he allowed himself to be caught and arrested.
The news that Jeanette is still alive galvanises him into action and he starts plotting his escape.
Horror movie icon Robert Englund plays Tapper. World famous as child killer Freddie Kruger in the classic Nightmare on Elm Street franchise his other genre credits include Phantom of the Opera, Wishmaster and cult TV show V.
“It’s never too late to make a killing”
Handsome young Scotsman Scott has it all – a good job, a nice car and a beautiful girlfriend. He also happens to be a slavering werewolf when the moon is full. Charming, confident and with a mean streak a mile wide, his loyalty lies with Ferris and their pack and he’s quite prepared to run his girlfriend through with a silver dagger when he thinks she might turn into a lycanthrope.
Scott is played by popular rising star Martin Compston, seen recently in Four and Piggy and soon to star in gangster film The Wee Man.
“Little pig, little pig, let me in… so I can fuck you in the face”
Deranged, psychotic sociopath Carlos is the werewolf you least want to meet on a dark night. His unintentionally funny tourettes gets him into all kinds of trouble and his penchant for eating humans covered in tomato ketchup leaves his fellow werewolves decidedly bemused.
Carlos is played by the much less sinister-looking Marc Bayliss, familiar from such British TV shows as The Bill and Hollyoaks and the film When Evil Calls.
“I like it doggy style”
Literal horndog Mickey just can’t get enough and his libido gets him into the worst kind of trouble when he wolfs out during a private dance at Vixens strip club.
In a hilariously funny cameo, Mickey is played by guest star Martin Kemp, iconic musician (Spandau Ballet) and actor (The Krays).
“Pretty lady makes Barker’s winky fizzy”
Constantly masturbating, Barker is more animal than man, a towering, childlike werewolf but just as vicious as the rest. Loves catching girls and chasing them naked around the wolves’ lair.
Barker is played by gentle giant Big Joe Egan, described by his former sparring partner Mike Tyson as “the hardest white man on the planet”. Joe’s other credits include both of Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes films.
