Your new movie Attack of the Killer Chickens - in a few words, what is it about?


Forget Everything You know about Chickens! It's the dawn of a new age, a chicken age! Attack of the Killer Chickens!


Blunt question: Why chickens? And what were your inspirations for coming up with Attack of the Killer Chickens?


Better a blunt question than a blunt object. Chickens are really cute and silly. I had a dream about chickens that I based the film on then I met puppet maker and puppeteer Rocco George who used to actually raise chickens, so we knew fate had a claw in all of this. We met on set of Bernard T. Ward's Popcorn Bag of Terror and I felt immediate creative synergy with Rocco. I knew we had to do a project together ASAP!!!


You just have to talk about your movie's chicken effects for a bit?


Rocco George created our unique and wonderful chicken puppets for the film! Each one is a totally unique work of art. Rocco and K.J. Hopkins worked both as puppeteers and doing special effects and make up. Rocco was truly so talented! He created the puppets, acted with a whole bunch of them in some challenging scenes, played a human character and worked on special effects! He is such a bright and cheerful guy too. A real team player.


With Attack of the Killer Chickens being a horror comedy, what can you tell us about the film's approach to horror, and its brand of comedy?


The film's approach to horror follows in the footsteps of a lot of great cult films such as Plan 9 from Outer Space, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and Attack of the 50 Foot Woman. In a sense, I wanted to pay homage to these cult classics with my film.

The brand of comedy was a bit inspired by John Waters and my own twisted sense of humor, haha!


As far as I know, Attack of the Killer Chickens is your directorial debut - so why did you choose exactly this story?


I actually wrote, directed and acted in this. My pal Pamela Martin suggested we work on a film project together so I told her about my dream and idea for Attack of the Killer Chickens. Then I put together a team and wrote the script! Things moved quickly. At night I dream of chickens ... cluck cluck cluck!


What can you tell us about your directorial approach to your story at hand?


After being in over 70 projects since October 2011 I thought it was time to direct. It felt natural. I wanted to do a horror/comedy because I think those are my two best genres as a writer and actress. I feel very comfortable on a film set and I tend to be a rather organized person that isn't afraid to take some chances.


You also act in front of the camera in Attack of the Killer Chickens - so what can you tell us about your character, and have you written her with yourself in mind from the get-go? And how much of Genoveva Rossi can we find in her?


Rocco George

I actually picked my team of 6 people I wanted to be part of this project then wrote the script with everyone in mind.


My character, Lisa is a character who is strong, but loving. I see part of myself in Lisa. I like playing strong, dynamic characters and as a woman I feel strong women need to be represented more and more in film.


What can you tell us about the rest of your cast, and why exactly these people?


Nick Petito plays Richard Donahue, a news reporter facing a crisis.

Rocco George is Vinnie, a neighbor, and also plays various chickens (Ronald, Damian and Betty).

Pamela Martin plays my lover Jill, a vulnerable character.

K.J. Hopkins is Tyrone and plays a couple chickens.

Edward X. Young is Edwin, a very desperate man in the film.

I choose each person based on their talent and passion.


I met Nick Petito ( a few years ago at Monster Mania where he was promoting his film Halloween Obsession. Later I acted in his film Jackie Ross: Little, But Tough. I was impressed with his camera work, vision and acting skills. I recall telling Nick that when it was time for me to direct my own film I definitely wanted him on my team.

In addition to acting, Nick Petito was our cinematographer, he also edited the film, created the lighting and sound. He also had some useful creative input and was a huge asset to the film in so many ways.


Pamela Martin, Genoveva Rossi

Pamela Martin ( and I have been pals for a few years. We are both actresses yet we had never acted together. Pam suggested we create a project and we did! Pam ended up becoming both acting in and producing this film. Thanks to her hard work my first film is a SAG film.


I met Rocco George ( on the set of Bernard T. Ward's Popcorn Bag of Terror. I played a sexy gypsy and he played a few roles as both puppet and person. We connected and I told him of my crazy chicken movie. He used his vast creative talent to create the chickens I had envisioned!

Rocco George designed the chickens, acted with them and also acted in a human role. He also worked special effects and make up. He was spectacular!


Edward X. Young ( and I have been in over 16 films together and at the time I was working on the script he had suffered a car accident. Luckily by the time we shot Ed was ready to get back to acting. He gave a wonderful performance in his role. His fans will love his scenes.


K. J. Hopkins ( and I have acted together in a number of films. He is a real team player. He played Tyrone, played a couple minor chicken roles, secured our location, worked on make up/special effects and helped out with all levels of the production.


Edward X. Young

Do talk about the shoot as such, and the on-set atmosphere?


It was a fun shoot, but also a focused one. It was a fun script and had a lot room for creative freedom, but we were super focused on our tasks. Nick Petito and I were especially focused on getting our shots and watching each scene after we shot it.


The $64-question of course, when and where will the film be released onto the general public?


I am hoping for an October release. Perhaps posting in online for a bit, submitting it to film festivals, putting it on DVD, etc.


After the experiences you had with Attack of the Killer Chickens - will you ever write and direct another movie again?


Yes! I liked writing/directing and I was really happy with my talented team of actors and crew!


Genoveva with Nick Petito

Any future projects you'd like to share?


Look for me in a bunch of upcoming films including Bernard T. Ward's Popcorn Bag of Terror, Herschell Gordon Lewis' Bloodmania [Herschell Gordon Lewis bio - click here], in Larry Rosen's Cries and Pleads and The Abducted, Hunters with Linnea Quigley, Blood on the Reel (an indie horror documentary), Sanctum Deep, Bite School ... plus I am working on some theatre acting! I also write a feature for each issue of Malevolent Magazine called A Day in the Life of a Scream Queen that details my life in horror!
