Editorial Reviews

Review

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

Product Description

When a fast food chicken restaurant is built on the site of an ancient Native American burial ground, the displaced spirits unite with the ghosts of exterminated chickens and transform into Indian chicken zombies seeking revenge! Now, it's up to a dim-witted counter boy, his lesbian ex-girlfriend, and a burqa-wearing fry cook to put an end to the foul-feathered menace once and for all.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars The surprise of the year. December 6, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars HORRIBLE, DISGUSTING AND SICK! YEAH....I LIKED IT! June 20, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF TROMA'S BEST!! December 6, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
POULTRYGEIST is one of Troma's best films to date!! I love the gore and the pure un-PC-ness of everything! This fits nicely next to The Toxic Avenger, Citizen Toxie, Class OF Nuke'EM High and Mother's Day, these are all CLASSICKS in my opinion and POULTRYGEIST fits right in. The songs are AMAZING!! I highly recommend the soundtrack too, which I picked up right away as well!! Lloyd Kaufman really outdid himself on this masterPIECE!!
PICK THIS SUCKA UP!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cluck you! August 12, 2008
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars In Troma's world November 10, 2008
Format:DVD
OK, yes it rates low in the overall scheme of things but for Troma this could be the best they've ever done. Buckets of gore and bodily fluids, loads of half naked chicks (no pun intended), terrible acting, hilarious musical numbers. As with most Tromas you get a feature length making of that makes you wonder how they ever get a movie made. I laughed from start to finish.

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.
