What you have here is a giallo that's slightly more on the artsy side of things. It starts right out with a bloody black-gloved slashing and from there we go to a chicken farm where a lot of this movie takes place, hence the title. There's lots of strange dialogue about chickens, a weird soundtrack which consists of everything from scat to what sounds like a maniac pounding on piano keys and all types of jazzy stuff in between. Gina Lollobridgida and Ewa Aulin both look extra sexy throughout and Ewa even wears a dress that reminded me of teenage Pebbles Flintsone which I'm adding bonus points for.
It's hard to go into the plot of this much without giving everything away since there's a big twist towards the end which ties everything together and makes sense of what seems like a very muddled mess upon first viewing. Full of double crosses and sleazy affairs, and although it's not nearly as gore-filled as the later Italian horrors, and it drags for a while in the mid-section of the film, this is still a decent example of an early offbeat giallo worth checking out for fans of weirder euro-trash.
