Movie Info

New York's Troma Films continue their grand tradition of relentlessly bad taste with this horror epic, which follows the exploits of an all-girl motorcycle gang -- who go by the quaint moniker "The Cycle Sluts" -- and their fearless leader Rox (Catherine Carlin), who offers the freedom of the road to any frustrated small-town girl willing to slap on the leathers. Things take a nasty turn for Rox and her violent femmes when the gang rides into Zariah -- a town in the slimy grip of a deranged mortician named Ralph (Don Calfa), who has been busily turning the locals into cannibalistic zombie slaves. As if that weren't enough... a busload of blind, orphaned teens become stranded within spitting distance of Ralph's undead army, and it's up to Rox's twisted sisters to save the day. Troma is often guilty of slapping outrageously goofy titles on not-so-funny films (e.g. Surf Nazis Must Die, Fat Guy Goes Nutzoid!, etc.), but this is something of an exception, with wonderfully sleazy performances, lots of zany energy and many clever references to zombie and biker-movie genres.

Zombies and biker chicks? How could this go wrong? I dunno, but it does

If only it were as promising as the title.

Audience Reviews for Chopper Chicks in Zombietown

Here's a film that delivers exactly what the title promises: a goofy tale of a female motorcycle gang that wanders into a town that is later overrun by zombies. There is really no honest attempt to explain the zombie outbreak, and it probably isn't necessary anyway. This film is pure Troma-style fun with gun-wielding blind school students, foul mouth biker chicks, and yes, Billy Bob Thorton. This is typical 1980's late-night cable horror fodder and with an empty head and a fridge full of beer, it's perfect entertainment. Don't expect anything earth-shattering and you'll be pleasantly surprised. Quotable, laughable, and a few moments of zombie mayhem - Chopper Chicks is a good time.

A C movie for a Troma film, so you know it's bad. With a title like that you'd expect a little more..

I have very fond memories of watching this with my Dad. Hands down the best Billy Bob Thorton movie! You have to love a movie where the zombies have their own theme song.
