‘The Obliteration of the Chickens’ (2019) Short Review – PopHorror

One of the things I love most about filmmaker Izzy Lee is that although I can always recognize her style, everything she does is unique and different from her previous project. This couldn’t be truer with her newest short, The Obliteration of the Chickens.
