Despite protests, the American Chicken Bunker chain build an outlet on top of a sacred American Indian burial ground in Tromaville. Head chickadee General Lee Roy(Rob Watkins) evens turns up to promote his tasty morsels. Meanwhile, affable loser Arbie(Jason Yachanin), pining for his ex-girlfriend Wendy(Kate Graham) who has eloped with militant Lesbian anti-Chicken Bunker campaigner Micki(Allyson Seraboff), decides to join the fast food empire and gets a job as a counter girl. However, there's something nasty bubbling away in the Bunker kitchen, something feathered, beaked and ready to eggsact revenge on those who disrespected the sacred burial ground. The night of the Native American zombie chicken has started, and workers and protesters alike soon realise its time they counted their chickens.
This hilarious film is a real triumph for Lloyd Kaufman and Troma. It's laugh a minute stuff, and is a winning mix of over the top gore, catchy musical numbers(I dare you not to sing along!), vomiting, diarrhoea and deliciously incorrect humour. Its targets are so wide ranging(i.e everybody)that it can't be criticized for offending any group in particular. The great climatic scenes of bloody chicken carnage rival Peter Jackson's Braindead for sheer outrageous gore quotent, and you'd have to be a very hard person not to fall in love with cute little Paco, the militant homosexual chicken sandwich. Eggcellent eggxtras too. I suggest you just capon going to your local dvd store and pullet a copy of this great movie from the shelf. Its better than a bargain bucket. 5 out of 5
