Former baseball player Blue Jean Douglas is closing down her small-town strip club and leaving for good. But her plans are not so easily attained when a group of coal miners show up and with them a deadly contaminant. What starts out as a last hurrah for the infamous strip club, turns into a blood bath. With time running out, Blue Jean must step up to the plate to try and put a stop to the spread of destruction before it’s too late and she loses everything she holds dear.

Run Time: 1 hr, 35 min
Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
Comments: The movie starts out with six minutes of a girl in only a thong dancing. The music is nice but the dancing girl goes on way to long.
Now at Bluejeans bar a group of miners show up. It slowly builds up the suspense as you know there is something off about the miners. Meanwhile the strippers do provide lovely female attributes to look at. The movie does focus on the girls naked breasts more than anything else at the start.
Once the miners/creatures attack we are still wondering what is going on? Why is this happening? What has infected the miners?
The miners/creatures makeup effects are cheap. They are just some black oily substance added to their faces.
The last part of the movie tries to establish relationships. It should have been done earlier in the movie.
Blue Jeans the Bar’s owner has attitude. As she talks with the new Bar owner he explains everything.
The fights with the creatures are simplistic. The ending is expected.
The acting could have been a lot better. The beautiful naked girls did not make up for the defaults in this film.
After the movie is over Blue Jean is shown dancing as a stripper in a bar. She does put on a good show. This does have a purpose. This is actually the best scene in the movie. It almost makes it worth sitting through the rest of the movie just to get to this.
