‘Survival of the foxiest’

Cabaret of the Dead aka Fetish Factory is a 2017 American comedy horror film written and directed by Staci Layne Wilson for Blanc/Biehn Productions. The movie stars Jennifer Blanc, Carrie Keagan, and Chase Williamson.


The story focuses on pin-up vixens vs. bloodthirsty zombies and is set in post-apocalyptic Hollywood.

Imagine a wickedly saucy by invitation-only stage show and posh private peeps in which your every fantasy can come true, fulfilled by the likes of luscious ladies imitating the sex goddesses of yore: Bettie Page, Jayne Mansfield, and Suzie Wong.

Along with classic burlesque and curio acts – a ventriloquist, a magician, and a whip-dancer – you are in for the night of your life at the Fetish Factory. That is until your life is at stake when the apocalypse strikes!

Once mild-mannered men become bloodthirsty zombies and it’s up to the girls to defend themselves by any means – even if that means turning their bullet bras, garter belts and spike-heels into deadly weapons…
