The Chickens Take Manhattan


This weekend at the movies you can either set off the summer blockbuster popcorn season by catching up with the number one movie Iron Man. You can take in the new Ashton Kutcher comedy What Stays in Vegas… or catch the animated series turned big screen live action extravaganza Speed Racer. These are the wide release features. However, if you live anywhere near the burrough of Manhattan you may want to check out the very limited release Poulrygeist: Night of the Living Chicken. It is described by the New York Times as a “satirical sexploitation zombie chicken gross-out musical extravaganza” with such characters as “Wendy,” “Micki,” “Arbie,” “Paco Bell,” (anyone seeing a pattern here), and “Carl, Jr.” (there is a fast food chain by that name, correct?). As the writer who reviewed this fine piece of cinema stated “it is just about as perfect as a film predicated on the joys of projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea can be.” That sounds like a crowd pleaser to me…. or at least part of a good game of Balderdash.

  1. Is this a PETA anti-meat production I wonder? In any event, having looked at that site this is a movie to take a pass on in my opinion.

    And yes, there is a Carl’s Jr. They are owned by CKE Restaurants, who also (since 1997) own the Hardee’c chain. When I was at NIU I actually worked at Hardee’s for awhile. I did the overnight shift. 2AM was a very busy time, at least as busy as, if not busier than the dinner rush. That’s when the bars closed, BTW…

  2. Fortunately, I don’t think the movie will be making its way to our little section of the world. I do know what you mean about 2AM rushes, peak time for 3rd shift workers.
