Time Out says

2 out of 5 stars
Troma’s old-school showman, Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger, etc.), never met a lowbrow concept he didn’t smother in special sauce and gobble up. His latest, about a KFC-like chicken shack built on an “Indian burial ground,” delivers supersize yawns: plenty of half-funny groaners; tuneless, lesbian-themed musical numbers; and a prologue that includes accidental butt sex with the undead and some corn-syrupy gore. Horror fans might enjoy the overall trashiness (and one truly unsettling kill with a meat slicer); everyone else should skip it.
