As savage as DAWN OF THE DEAD, as slapstick nutzoid as EVIL DEAD II... An exploitation movie with soul. --Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Chicken zombies from hell!!!
C. Christopher Blackshere
The songs, the jokes, the gore, everything about this movie was perfect.
A. Pierre
This has to be one of the best Troma movies I have seen in a long while.

For those of you not familiar with Troma,
don't be fooled by my 5 star rating.
This movie is horrible.
Horrible in the sleaziest, bloodiest, cheesiest way!
My wife left after 10 minutes (Wahoo!;)
Classic Kaufman.

Here's the plot if you need one--
A fast food chicken joint is constructed on an Native American burial ground. I guess, although I'm not really positive, that these native's spirits possessed the dead chickens and arose from the grave, seeking double revenge. Chicken zombies from hell!!! Bwaaaaahahahaa.....

Poultrygeist has the basic Troma stuff:
-more gratuitous nudity than a porno (almost)
-revolting projectile vomiting
-extremely disgusting turd spraying
-absurdily bloody decapitations
-outrageous satirical episodes slamming pop culture
-macaroni and cheesy acting
-excessive damage to the crotchal region
-ignoramus heroes that you gotta love
-tactless social commentary
-insane gore stuffed down your throat

Recommended to rednecks, retards, idiots, and people from Boise, Idaho.

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (Lloyd Kaufman, 2006)

I'm not a big Troma fan. In fact, the last Troma film I remember actually liking was the original The Toxic Avenger. It's gotten to the point where even the Troma name on a movie will cause me to avoid it (even if they're just distributing--I've seen my share of Troma-distributed flicks, and to a one, they're hideous). But the concept behind Poultrygeist was just too plain old stupid for me to pass up, and I have to say, now that I've watched it, I can't remember the last time I was this surprised by a movie. I can't honestly say that I enjoyed it, but it's certainly the funniest movie I've seen this week.

We open with Arbie and Wendy (are you getting the joke yet?), a typical high school couple, making out in the local Indian burial ground, and Wendy promising that going off to college won't change her feelings for Arbie. Yeah, right. Fast-forward a semester, and Arbie has gone back to relive some memories, only to find that the burial ground has been bulldozed to make way for an American Chicken Bunker, a mega-fast-food-mart. It's on the verge of opening, but is under protest by a number of fringe groups, one of which happens to contain Wendy--who, much to Arbie's musical dismay, has become a lesbian and a vegan. To spite her, he decides to get a job at ACB, where he joins co-workers Denny, Paco Bell, Carl Jr. (okay, are you getting the joke now?), and Hummus. Problem is, interpersonal drama is not the only thing going on here, for those Indian spirits aren't too happy about being bulldozed, and have every intention of getting their revenge by possessing everything in sight.

This is by far the best Troma film to date. Say what you will in argument, but only a select few can truly compare to this finger-licking masterpiece (of chicken). Not only is it a slapstick gore/comedy, but it also makes a tongue-in-cheek-yet-honest poke at the fast food industry. Vegans and PETA fans rejoice! Or at least appreciate. However, this is NOT for those who are easily offended (and really, why are you watching a Troma film if you are?!). A-pluses all around, and a big pat on the back to all of those who slept on basement floors, church floors, and ate cheese sandwiches.

The title alone should have given me some idea what to expect, but nothing could prepare me for what I witnessed when I watched 'Poultrygeist'! Loving or hating this film is really a matter of taste, it's absurd and genius and the same time. Horrible over the top acting and gore make this film a must see for fans of such shocking yet hilarious satire.

The only problem with this film is it's length and the musical numbers are way too long! If this film had been edited better, it would be a masterpiece!

Warning this film is DISGUSTING!....so if you're squeamish don't even think about it! There is also lots of nudity, so if that bothers you......!? Well I don't think that will bother anyone interested in this film!

The two disc "EGG-DITION" has tons of extras to keep any fan busy, but the price is a bit much....although it's not much more than the single disc version.

"Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead" is an unusual film even by Troma's standards. Shot with amateur actors in a church and an abandoned McDonald's in Buffalo, New York on a very slim budget, the film recounts fast food capitalism run amok with terrifying consequences. The film starts with the typical Lloyd Kaufman introduction (the best one he's ever done, incidentally) and quickly shifts to the "Tromahawk Tribe Indian Burial Ground," which is defiled by a couple of teenagers, Wendy (Kate Graham) and Arbie (Jason Yachmanin,) before being vastly more defiled by American Chicken Bunker, which builds a fast food restaurant atop it.

Did I mention that "Poultrygeist" is also a profane musical? The music and choreography is about what you'd expect with occasionally witty lyrics, but generally resorting to shock humor to get laughs. The restaurant has a crew of oddballs working there, from a jihadist fry cook named Hummus (Rose Grauami) to a gay Mexican named Paco Bell (Khalid Rivera.) Management is provided by Denny (Joshua Olatunde) and General Lee Roy (Robin L. Watkins.) I have to admit I was amused by the fast food names the cast sported, but was less amused by most other aspects of the film. It's obvious to anyone who has ever seen a Troma film before (or anyone who read the film's title carefully) that the ghosts of Indian chickens come back to haunt the American Chicken Bunker, and it starts on opening day. Manager Denny has his hands full with college protestors outside and an exponentially worsening mutant chicken problem inside ("Who put these mysterious, vein-covered, pulsating eggs in this box?")

Sounding the alarm about the forthcoming chicken apocalypse is Ron Jeremy (as "Crazy Ron") who, despite his misgivings, still orders a value meal.

Amazons preorder guarantee should have automatically charged you only 20 bucks for it instead of 26 bucks. I've preordered from them b4 and usually the day of release the price goes down and amazon only charges that amount not prior amount.
