Sometimes when you are looking for a movie to watch little things outside of the synopsis will catch your eye and lure you into the idea that this could be a good movie. Chopper Chicks in Zombie town just happens to be one of those movies for me. Let’s dissect the title: “Chopper” – I love American Chopper the series; I watch it every week and I have a new found love for bikes even though you probably will never catch me on one. “Chicks” – I’m a guy right, what’s not to like about chicks, especially those on a chopper! “Zombietown” – This sounds like a pretty crazy place, with zombies all over. I think you’d spend most of the time watching your ass for brain hungry zombies, but at least it’s not Cleveland! The title has all the making of a fun, scary, rip-roaringly good time right… plus it has Billy Bob Thornton in one of his first roles, and Martha Quinn in one of her last!
We haven’t reviewed too many biker flicks here yet, but this one had a place mostly near, and somewhat dear to our hearts. You see, Northville Cemetery Massacre was filmed in a town just 10 minutes away from where I live, so I was interested in what this movie was all about. Northville Cemetery Massacre (1976) is directed by William Dear and Thomas L. Dyke. I went through the credits and the first 20 people that were in the film have no other credits, so I won’t even bother mentioning their names. Two of the credits is “Detroit’s Scorpions Motorcycle Club”, and the “Road Agents Motorcycle Club”, and while some of the characters from the club have names, most of them aren’t mentioned in the credits. The other credit of note is the introduction of Nick Nolte‘s voice… Yeah, his voice… Nick Nolte isn’t in the movie, but his voice is. He voices the main character Chris. Why Chris couldn’t use his own voice is any body’s guess. The movie is also graced with the musical genius that is Mike Nesmith (of The Monkees, of course) to provide the soundtrack.
