a chickenIf you read the blog yesterday, then you already know I watched ‘Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead’. It was a weekend full of poultry! I ran into a girl from work who told me her husband started building a chicken coop in their backyard so they can keep two chickens. This may be a normal conversation in some people’s worlds, but everyone I know pretty much lives in the city, and keeping chickens isn’t exactly common. On the way home we passed by a sex shop that had an inflatable chicken in the window. Okay, sheep I kinda get, but chickens? sheep are docile and woolly while chickens are pretty active and have sharp pecky beaks. Are chickens sexy? Gonzo on the Muppet Show seemed quite fond of them. Maybe there’s some group of Gonzo worshippers out there that fantasize about chicken sex. It’s been a while since I posted anything other than a review so I figured it was time I compiled a list. And that is how ‘THE COOP OF CTHULHU – Five Horror Films That Feature Chickens’ was hatched. I combed my brain for horror films that feature chickens and this was all I could come up with. I’m sure I must be missing some voodoo, satan worship films. If you’ve got one, leave me a comment!

The poor chickens are just snacks in this one. An alien possesses a farmers wife and goes to work as a 6th Grade substitute teacher. In one scene she is caught chowing down on a chicken, feathers and all in a room full of feathered friends.

This is the film that Cosby kid, Lisa Bonet lost favor with Bill over. Unfortunately her chicken co-star is nothing more than a sacrifice during a fevered ritualistic dance, but he probably got more press than any other chicken on this list.

Directed By: Bert I. Gordon
“One Taste Is All It Takes!”
Filmed right here in British Columbia on beautiful Bowen Island. Those giant animals they have over there are a real menace! Giant wasps, giant rats and best of all, giant chickens. Finally, the chickens get their revenge! ‘Food of The Gods’ is genuine Grade B Canadian cheese.

Director: Sam Drog
“Murder Most Fowl!”
I read a review of Zombeak on It’s a low budget independent film about rednecks, satanists, possessed chickens and the walking dead. That is a whole lotta movie! Sounds great! So I went to their official site at and watched the trailer. It looks like it could be an entertaining way to spend 70 minutes. So, even though I have never seen the film I had to include it. Who will survive the terror of Zombeak!?

Director: Lloyd Kaufman
“Humans… the other white meat… Unless you’re black, then it’s dark meat… Or if you are Asian, then it’s yellow meat…Or if you are Native American, it’s red meat…”
It’s a horror-comedy-musical from Troma about zombie chickens. Go read yesterday’s review!
