Troma Promotes First Chicken Zombie Horror Film

While the awards and premieres get all the glitzy coverage at the annual Cannes film festival, hardcore movie freaks know that it's the buying and selling that's really at the heart of the event. According to an article in The Statesman, the horror genre is alive and kicking this year, with every country in attendance offering some kind of sick flick.

Troma Films, the long-standing indie exploitation company, continues their legacy of memorable titles (remember, this is the company that gave us both THE TOXIC AVENGER and CLASS OF NUKE 'EM HIGH) with POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD, which they're touting as the first chicken zombie movie. The film, which comes with a message instead of fries, is aimed at a fast-food industry the filmmakers say is literally killing us.
