Every school has its outcasts and Lollipop Chainsawâ€™s San Romero High is no exception. Swan is the resident Goth Geek Bastard who loathes people and society. Seeking revenge on the people who rejected and ridiculed him, Swan is on a mission to take over the world. But there was one thing he did not count on â€“ Juliet, San Romeroâ€™s resident cheerleader and zombie-slayer, kicking his ass.
So relax, suck back on a strawberry lollipop and enjoy the new vignette!Â Lollipop Chainsaw is the â€˜un-deadlyâ€™ story of sweet and killer zombie hunter Juliet Starling and her quest to uncover the root of a colossal zombie outbreak.
With her wickedly awesome chainsaw in hand, Juliet slices, dices and splits her way through hordes of the undead, but soon realizes the horde is only the opening act to a festival of zombie rock lords determined to kill the chainsaw wielding cheerleader.
