3.0 out of 5 stars Good late night fun March 6, 2008
Format:DVD
Candy Stripers won't win any awards, and it certainly borrows from other movies such as Aliens and Body Snatchers, but c'mon it is a fun little movie and is worth a watch.

An alien of unknown origin infects an auto accident victim who is wheeled into a hospital. She spreads the alien to a candy striper with a kiss. Then the fun begins. It doesn't take long before all the candy stripers are devouring all sweets in the hospital, including suger packets.

Our heros are high school basketball players, a cheerleader, and a diabetic geek chick who is a sister to one of the players. They discover a way to kill the aliens and begin runniing around the hospital Rambo style with air guns filled with insulin.

The special effects are OK, the candy stripers are hot, and we get some decent kills. It's a good DVD to pull out every now and then.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet December 15, 2006
Format:DVD
Thanks to an auto accident, a parasitic alien manages to get into a hospital. It quickly moves from the crash victim into a candy striper. Among the patients at the hospital are some rather short high school basketball players. It is through them that we watch the events unfold. The infected, or inhabited, candy striper becomes predatory. She goes after men for sex and after women to spread. Infected women develop an incredible sweet tooth and devour anything sweet they can find. The horror then spreads.

As the horror takes over more of the hospital and the CDC locks it down, the basketball players and a few friends do everything they can to try and get out of the hospital. But soon it becomes evident that the problem has spread too far. Now if they manage to escape it will only be to delay the inevitable if they cannot halt the spread of aliens before they get out and take over the whole world.

As one would expect from the title and cover, there are plenty of curvy women in this one. Plenty of nudity too but surprisingly very little gore. I was reminded of Blue Monkey what with the hospital setting and the way the story develops. Unfortunately the budget was a little short so the hospital is very vacant. Hallway scenes show no one in what is supposed to be a busy hospital. But other than that it works pretty well. There are some tried and true plot devices and complications including a love triangle. The effects are pretty interesting and non-standard. Check it out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Won't live up to your personal candy striper fantasies December 31, 2006
Format:DVD
Hollywood knows us so well. Any self-respecting horror fan will know that this film almost has to be sub-par, yet so many of us just can't resist the allure of R-rated candy stripers having their way with a cast full of characters. I'll bet it will be really gory, we rationalize, but all we really care about is seeing some of our sick candy striper fantasies realized, however vicariously. It's the same instinct that gets most of the male cast members of this film killed. We just can't help ourselves, despite warnings such as the one I am about to deliver: Candy Stripers is a silly, laughable film that just doesn't deliver the goods.

The only surprising thing about this low-budget cheesefest is the fact that the director serving up this round of candy striper titillation is a woman (Kate Robbins). Maybe that explains why there is a lot less nudity in this film than I was expecting. To be frank, I didn't even find these bodacious candy stripers all that attractive, including those portrayed by Playboy Playmates Deanna Brooks and Serria Twain. (Eliza Swenson is totally hot as Nurse Sally, but she doesn't get much screen time.)

There's no sign of an original thought to be found in this film. The plot is utterly predictable, and the characters are all hackneyed stereotypes. You've got your dumb jock, your loud and abrasive jock, your heroic jock, your blonde bimbo head cheerleader, and of course your geeky girl who is secretly in love with said heroic jock. After a basketball game turns ugly, three players (representing 60% of the team, as there is not a single bench player to be found on the sidelines) end up in some unnamed hospital.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better then I thought August 18, 2007
Format:DVD
Im a sucker for low rent horror films. Im usually disappointed by some of them, but I cant help watching them. Ever time you go to a video store there is about fifty or so new direct to dvd horror films. I saw this movie and read the back of it. I knew this movie would be a real stinker from the get go. It was a rip off Species. All in all the movie wasnt too bad and it was kind of like a softcore porn film. Thats not why I liked the movie either; There was a few good scenes of death and hell I dont know. I just enjoyed this movie. The only problem was the ending. Why is every low budget horror movie have to have an ending that spells sequel?
