Strippers take on Werewolves in the streets of Croydon
Prepare to see strippers and werewolves do battle in front of some of Croydon's most recognisable streets and landmarks.
Movie Strippers Vs Werewolves was filmed in four weeks last May in locations including the Hustler Club in Surrey Street and Croydon High Street.
Producer Jonathan Sothcott, who grew up in Godstone, explained why Croydon was his perfect film set.
He said: “Growing up, Croydon was my local shopping town and my dad actually works there so I know it well.
“What I love is Croydon has the feel and look of central London but there is a bit more space, which makes it perfect for filming.”
Since his work on Strippers Vs Werewolves, he has continued to use the town as a film set, shooting football hooligan flick White-Collar Hooligan, due out next month, in the town.
He said: “I have a lot to thank Paul Collins at the Croydon Conference Centre for. He has become my set scout.”
The film features a cast including Robert Englund, the original Freddy Kruger, glamour model Lucy Pinder, and a debut appearance from Adele Silva, from Norbury, adding to the film’s south London connections.
Unabashed about the nature of the film, Mr Sothcott, who has more than 20 titles to his name, said cinema goers could expect a good fun action film.
He said: “Getting Robert on board was fantastic. I met with my team and we said who, if you could have anyone, would we want?
“Robert was top of the list. A call, agreeing to pay him a huge amount of money, and he was in.
“Anyone expecting some sleazy sex film will be disappointed.
“It is not about being so clever and ironic, it is simply what it says, Strippers Vs Werewolves.”
Strippers Vs Werewolves premiers at the London Imax on Tuesday, April 24, before going on general cinema release on Friday, April 27.
