This is why you should never build a fried chicken restaurant on top of an ancient Indian burial ground.

My oh my... I don't know how to respond to a movie such as this.  I don't think I could make it through it with my sanity in good condition.  On the other hand, I think I discovered the most insane movie ever created.

Anyways, good review as usual.  Since it takes quite a while now for you to do a movie review, maybe it's time for a Guest Review?  But besides that, I have two questions.  How did you come across this film and how did it all end?

A good bad movie is like popcorn for the soul!

The best thing Troma has done in a long, long time.

Or the worst. 

Depends on your point of view!

Troma is so unsubtle, they are actually subtle.

Clearly, there are any number of restaurant chains featured in the film.

Arbi = Arby's
Wendy = Wendy's
Denny = Denny's
Carl jr. = Carl jr.

After those here are some more possibilities.

Paco Bell = Taco Bell
Micki = Mickey D's = McDonald's
General Lee Roy = Colonel Sanders = KFC

I'd definitely put this up as one of Troma's best.  The best use of that stock car crash, BY FAR, at least.

It's possibly their funniest film too.  I mean, it tried for laughs, and they actually WORKED.  It's not like some Troma films where you're purely laughing AT the movie, a lot of this stuff works exactly as it was meant to.  It's also their GORIEST film, which is saying something.  And, easily, their most disgusting. 

So basically, I approve.  I actually think 3 slimes is too low..  I'd give it an 8/10.

My complaints are similar though - there's a few scenes of filler which could have been trimmed down, and some of the songs also slow the film down a little too much.

My friends and I did a fake Poultrygeist commercial for our radio group Erratic Static back in the 80's! I love Tromo's trashy nature, so I just might have to get this one!

I'm totally with you on Micki.  Most of the time she was on screen, I was just like "Dude, seriously, put your shirt back on!"

BoyScoutKevin: There's another I picked up on: At the end of the song "Slow Fast Food Love", Arbi and Wendy make the signs for A&W, another hamburger joint (actually a rootbeer stand, but they sold burgers).

All in all I love this movie, it's totally trashy, and again, Troma sought out girls with the weirdest boobs they could find. I love the song "Slow Fast Food Love", as well as most of the musical scores.

Cool little video edit.

Ugh... I could barely finish this travesty. It was as pleasurable as dry-humping a sandy cedar deck! Thumbdown Thumbdown

We have a concept called "rentals" here in the US... I thought it would have made it over the pond by now.  Wink

Oh God, this movie was vile. Really. And not funny. And there is no excuse for that.  It made that zombie sheep flick look like Oscar material.  I gave my three DVD set away so I would not die with that on my soul.

I've never seen a place that rents Troma films.

Aren't most DVD players in the UK multi-region capable?  Can't you just get the US dvd - or do they not handle NTSC -> PAL?
