Chopper Chicks in Zombietown (1989) 1 brainhalf brain

Filmed by the low-budget masters at Troma, Chopper Chicks in Zombietown is somewhat entertaining, but there are a lot of slow spots and the acting is barely adequate. There are some innovative parts, but they are not executed as well as they could be. One bright spot that was recently pointed out to me was that this film features Billy Bob Thornton in an early role. I think the first time I had watched this, Thornton had not yet registered on my movie radar, so his presence escaped me.

The basic story is that a women biker gang rides into a small town where a local scientist is making zombies and then penning them up in an abandoned mineshaft. The zombies escape the mineshaft and head towards town. On the way the zombies happen upon a busload of blind children, put into the movie for cheap gags.

I don't want to give away what more little plot there is, but that is about as deep as it gets. If you're a Troma fan, you may still want to watch this, but even Troma has made other movies that are way better.
