Kentucky Fried Movie

Released 1977
Distributor United Film Distribution

Before Broken Lizard and the Farrelly Brothers there was/were The Zuckers (plus Abraham) to burst the bounds of taste and political correctness with this often-imitated smorgasboard of skits, parodies and general silliness. Samuel L. Bronkowitz’s valedictory triumph was directed by TFH Guru John Landis.

About Josh Olson

Josh Olson  was the only student in his second grade class to see The House That Dripped Blood.  Many years later, he wrote and directed the no-budget horror film, Infested, a brutal assault on The Big Chill, with zombies. He went on to write the screenplay for A History of Violence and was nominated for the WGA, BAFTA and Academy Awards for Best Screenplay. He kept losing to Larry McMurtry, but that’s okay.  He co-wrote the teleplay for the Masters of Science Fiction episode, The Discarded, with Harlan Ellison, and is currently writing a sophisticated thriller, Tabloid, for Mick Jagger.
