"Chicks is a sharp genre-defying take on a classic teenage girl slumber party, addressing the stereotypes and media portrayals of female friendship with humor."

-Jenifer Westphal (Founder of Wavelength Productions)

“Chicks invites the viewer to rethink on-screen depictions of teen female friendships, which are typically fraught with needless rivalry and manipulation."

"Its vivid, ambitious finale will leave you reeling: an overall audience pleaser with just the right amount of WTF."

-Kevin Conner (Senior Programmer, NFFTY)

"Chicks is a fun horror comedy, oozing with style. It serves as a strong showcase for Writer/Director Geena Marie Hernandez."

-Curt Wiser (OC Movies, TV & Streaming Reviews)

"The women led horror short of my dreams"

"Wonderfully campy and frankly batshit feminist horror-comedy short"

"Need a full feature"

"Still more accurate dinosaurs than Jurassic park"

"a perfect “what the actual fuck” short film"

"This film has everything: Sleepovers. Ancient Dino Gods. Empowering Friendships Between Women. SO MUCH PINK. It's beautiful. I saw this screening in a theater and can confirm that this had everyone in the room screaming, more than once. I will never look at eggs the same way ever again and I'm 100% okay with that. GO WATCH CHICKS!!"
