Peelers Co-Writer Sevé Schelenz excelled in the collaborative narrative construct. The conflict finds its start in the first scene to ACT I. Conflict matures from this point thus encapsulating viewer interest. Schelenz and Co-Writer Lisa DeVita also provided adequate humor to dilute the pronounced carnage. Peelers features a settled storyline untainted with over the top nonsensical additives.

Schelenz as Director captured the unfolding drama from creative vantage points. Exploited were key angles for greatest creative effect. Overhead viewpoints, medium, and close ups were effective in emphasizing the visual narration. Composed shots were not committed to vain. Each sequence had a useful purpose.

From the post-production aspect, the added color treatments made the film distinguished. The filters complimented the tonality of the film. Using this color palate gave Peelers an aesthetic seen with infection themed films.

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.

In terms of the lighting, most of the film had medium to low light conditions. This creative employment offered the viewer more intensity to their viewing experience. The director of photography did good work with creating tense and frightful canvases.

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.

In closing;

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.
