Storyline

Paul Wilson's life quickly comes undone after the arrival of a new next-door neighbor: a homicidal chicken named Pembrooke Arbaghast. Paul's friends think Pembrooke is "an okay guy". Is Paul crazy, or is this chicken really out for blood? This 22-minute live-action dark comedy is best described as a cross between Gary Larson's cartoon "The Far Side" and the movie "Cape Fear". Written by Marichelle Inonog

The best damned chicken movie I've ever seen!
12 April 2000 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

No, this is NOT a French flick. It's actually a dark comedy about a homicidal chicken who stalks his next-door neighbor relentlessly. It's like David Fincher doing a cross between "Babe" and "Cape Fear". The writer/director team of Drew Daywalt & David Schneider were truly inspired when they came up with this twisted little tale. The world they and their cast & crew created was seamless -- a world in which people never question the ability of a chicken to drive, type, play cards...or even wield an axe. This kind of stuff is perfectly normal in their Everyland, USA. HATE* brings a smile to my face every time I watch it!
