When well-meaning but somewhat dim Arbie returns to the spot of his first (and only) romantic encounter with his high school sweetheart — the not-so-romantic Ancient Tromahawk Tribe Indian Burial Ground — he is shocked to discover two horrible realities: Not only has the graveyard been bulldozed to make room for the newest fast-food “American Chicken Bunker” chain restaurant, but after only one semester at college, his girlfriend Wendy has been transformed into a left-wing, lipstick-lesbian liberal, and spends her free time protesting the corporate takeover of America. Reeling from heartbreak and a brutal beating from Micki, Wendy’s new activist girlfriend, Arbie channels his spite into applying for a job at the very restaurant they are protesting against.But something else is feeling wronged by all of the construction and commotion–something not human. Meanwhile, Arbie and his colorful co-workers slowly uncover the supernatural secret of the American Chicken Bunker, while the owner General Lee Roy tries to keep a lid on the scandal, lest it taint his growing empire. But once workers and customers start dying in bizarre and grotesque ways, it becomes clear that this isn’t just a mild case of salmonella, but something much more FOWL. Will Arbie and his friends stop the demons before they infect all the artificial foodstuffs, the customers, and the world beyond? Will Arbie be able to win Wendy back now that he’s making minimum wage? What’s Carl Jr. doing with that frozen chicken? And what’s with all the singing and dancing?
