Review

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

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.

Ok,... First of all, you have to look at the very 1st review by chris blackshere, its very straight forward and pretty much sums up everything. Just the title alone should tell you what the movie is about....

It's completely gross...cheesy....sick...outrageous...non sense...absurd.....bizarre.....but yet still funny and sexy in a very weird way. It was my first horror musical and i have to tell you i wasn't expecting that at all. One of my friend said i would probably like it despite all the songs and stuff so he got it for me. But now that i think about it, I think it was just to see my reaction the next day....

To be honest here i'll have to admit that i did watched the whole thing the 1st time because it was so strange and absurd that i needed to see what was next. I soon discovered that the actors weren't that bad and that i needed to see it all as a "horror fan" point of view just to know exactly what it was about....And then came the first song......OMG.........i don't even know what to say..................disturbing i guess......but captivating...lol. At this point, i was in for the strangest ride i have ever been on as a horror fan watching a "so called" horror/musical movie (does that even exist..?). There was some extremely gross moments, but there was also some good "cheesy plot" elements that got me wondering what would be next....so....i stayed for the whole ride...please don't get me wrong here, i have respect for this film and everyone that was involved in making it. It was daring, fun and very sexy but it is NOT for everyone!!...As for me, i decided i would definitely be checking more of those "troma" movies.

I went back to it a couple times (yes...im that crazy..ha!

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.
