Chopper Chicks in Zombietown (1991)

(a.k.a Cycle Sluts)

Written and Dircted by Dan Hoskins

DVD Review: Chopper Chicks in Zombietown (1991)When an all-girl motorcycle gang called the Cycle Sluts arrive at the small, desert town of Zariah they are looking for a little R&R and some 'meat' and I don't think that last one has anything to do with a tray of mince and half a pound of sausage. Well. not the mince anyway.  Unfortunately for the 'meat' seeking girls what they find instead is a whole load of trouble. A zombie menace is heading for town and things are not looking good in Zariah because the zombies want some meat too.

The zombies have been busy working at the local mine and they all used to be living, breathing members of the local community until the local undertaker, Ralph Willum, stepped in and recruited them for his zombie workforce. And when he sees all of that fresh meat arriving by chopper Willum sees a chance to swell the ranks of his undead workforce, so he sends out his pint-sized henchman, Bob Littleton, to kill the sluts and bring their bodies to him for reanimation.

The Cycle Sluts head for ZariahThe Cycle Sluts' leader is a tough-talking lady called Rox, who is perhaps not the best loved of leaders, and she knows it, but her way is the only way she knows and the girls are just going to have to like it or lump it. Her dyke-heart is in the right place though, and she genuinely cares about her girls, even is she doesn't always know how to show it.

The Slut who tends to lock her red-headed horns with Rox the most is Dede. She is not keen on stopping in Zariah and would prefered to ride straight through the town. Dede has her reasons for this though, not least of which is the fact that she used to live in the town, and is a former Homecoming Queen. The locals remind her of this every chance that they get—"Hey, weren't you homecoming queen?" Her fellow Sluts knew nothing about this, and Rox takes an especially dim view of the whole thing, especially when Dede's husband shows up looking for her, "Choose babe," Rox tells her, dangling the keys to Dede's bike between her fingertips.

RoxRox kicks Dede's bike over and rides out of town without her. The rest of the gang are less than impressed with this sudden turn of events. They are also wondering what has happened to Lucille, who went off in search of some 'meat' and never returned. With a total disregard for Rox's feeling on the matter, some of the girls decide to head back into town and look for their friends, even if it does mean fighting a few zombies.

Zombies doing their thingIt is a good job the Sluts are back in town because the local townsfolk are somewhat reluctant to kill the zombies because they are (were) their friends and family. The Sluts have no such reservations, however. Dede's weapon of choice is a baseball bat and she is one Slut who knows how to swing. Zombie are losing their heads over her left, right and centre, while her fellow Slut, Rusty, gets busy with her blowtorch and blows the wax out of some zombie ears. T.C, meanwhile, is packing a staple gun and it's hard not to admire her for her optimism. Rusty, however, is losing confidence in her weapon of choise, so she swaps her blowtorch for a chainsaw. But the zombies keep on coming and—just to make it interesting—a bus full of blind orphans need the Sluts' to protection as well.

Dede and BobChopper Chicks in Zombietown is a very entertaining movie that doesn't require you to think too much.  There is plenty of humour, plenty of chicks and an abundance of zombies.  I can't remember ever watching a comedy horror that I enjoyed more and I even liked the music, although, Rox's rendition of "Do What Your Big Mamma Tells You" left me feeling a little mystified (what's THAT all about?). And, watching her sliding up and down the jukebox while she sang it, the locals looked more than a little mystified as well, but it's all good fun.

The Cycle Sluts prepare to kick some zombie ass
