The Chicken Party is a 2018 American horror thriller feature film about two Japanese sisters who are invited to a social event that turns into a fight for survival.

Written and directed by Carlos R. Valencia (The Midnight Screening), the Casanova Pictures production stars Megumi Kabe, Ami Shimada (And Then There Were None 2017), Schafer Bourne, Tea Wagner (The Vamps Next Door series) and Saskia Vinkhuyzen.


Two Japanese sisters visit Los Angeles for the first time and during their travels, they are invited to a ‘chicken party’, a place to make international friends.

At first, the party seems nice and fun, however by the end of the night it turns into a nightmare and the sister must get out before they are killed…


” …a great deal of static could have been eliminated, and the whole movie tightened up. Some of the dialogue, especially from the party’s hosts, could have been shortened or left out entirely. We get it, they’re nuts! One particular “dance” scene is both humorous and creepy at the same time! As it is, it’s still worth a watch, and has a memorable finale.” Grave Reviews


The Chicken Party premiered at the Riverside International Film Festival on 18 April 2018.
