The central focus on the film Peelers resides in the practical effects arena. The department behind the creations of gore are the shining stars to Schelenz’s film. Whether in close-ups or wide angles each make-up effect stood with fine craftsmanship.

From a personal point of view having a strong female lead is a highlight of the film Peelers. The role did not trek on conventional standards. Instead, the character called Blue Jean had intensity and grit. Actress Wren Walker was an excellent fit for the role, thus elevating the character.
The acting felt rough yet it did not castigate the effectiveness of the film. The on-screen chemistry between the cast was effective. Yet, evident was the notorious B-movie dialogue offering.
Peelers from a narrative aspect relate as a carbon copy of an Action, Horror released in 1996. Robert Rodriguez directed the film in question. The production was based on the script written by Robert Kurtzman and Quentin Tarantino.
Peelers delivers a complete Action, Horror package. Nudity becomes an added and welcome feature. Comedic elements shift the film away from serious tones common in related genres. Practical effects are of high quality and thus becoming the major contributor to Schelenz’s film.
