Join us at the Rio Theatre on Monday, March 20 for the Canadian Theatrical Premiere of PEELERS, a killer new horror feature film from Vancouver-based director Sevé Schelenz (SKEW). Filmmakers in attendance for a Q&A session following the screening.
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 (Wren Walker), has decided to hand over her bar to a new owner and leave town for good – but her 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.
