There's so bad it's funny and then there is just bad.
NicCanDance
Admittedly, the first one was pretty bad, but it was bad in a hilarious way - #3 was awful in a way that made me stop watching about 30 minutes in.

My friends and I were excited to see this movie after watching the first one, and were very disappointed.

The first ThanksKilling was brutal, ridiculous, and -- at first sight - a horrible movie. But that's what it was meant to be, and was proud of that fact. For those of us that got the joke, we loved it for what it was, and we cheered on the murderous, wise-cracking Turkie as he reeled off line after line of absurbities while gleefully hacking up brain-dead teenagers.

Now we have ThanksKilling 3, which is the result of a successful Kickstarter campaign from TK's creators, backed by those of us who either loved the first movie or at the very least wanted to see such dedicated indie filmakers succeed. TK3 -- which makes ThanksKilling the first franchise to actually skip its own sequel and jump straight into the 3rd installment -- is what happens when indie filmakers raise a big bunch of cash from the faithful and follow their own vision, with no compromise.

It's pretty cool.

The production is a world away from the bare-bones TK, and there are moments of true, unbridled ambition in TK3 that are a delight to behold. This is not a "good" movie by any means, and like TK, it's not meant to be... rather it's the result of passion-fueled imagination drunkenly vomiting all over Thanksgiving and filming the whole thing. And adding a bunch of puppets.

The plot revolves around Turkie's quest to capture the one remaining copy of ThanksKilling 2 in order to spread his curse around the world, and the foul fowl's single-minded obsession means he'll stop at nothing... even his own son is little more than cannon fodder in his quest. It's raunchy, ridiculous, curse-laden (in more ways than one), groan-inducing, a little self-indulgent, out-and-out trippy in a few spots, and laugh-out-loud hilarious in places.

The First Movie: I loved the insanity of the first movie, the low budget, the absurd situations, and the crass one liners from Turkie. It was mindless fun and a train wreck that had to be seen.

Thankskilling 3 offers absolutely nothing from the first movie. They obviously received more of a budget and wasted it. This movie is all puppets which might sound intriguing, but it's not. It's not funny, the puppets suck. Grandma puppet is interesting to look at, but delivers unfunny lines.

Look - don't expect anything to carry over from the first movie. This is entirely different. There is no crazy killing Turkey anymore - I think he kills one person - thats it! I really want my money back for renting this - I've never felt that way about any movie. Typically I say "Oh, well"... but this time, because this 2nd movie is misleading and NOTHING like the first - I totally want a refund. This is absolute crap. I was so angered by it.

So if you were a fan of the first one, you won't be a fan of the second.

Puppets, violence, gags, and of course our beloved crass Turkie.
Everything in this film is much bigger.
The sets, the lighting, the special effects, the songs and score.

Decidedly less human actors, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
Almost every style of animation is present, save for claymation.

I'd recommend going into Thankskilling 3 with an open mind, and not expecting to see an exact clone of the original.
It has HILARIOUS parody songs, sight gags, and lots of hidden little nuggets to be discovered.

All in all it was a very enjoyable film.
It is definitely a proud addition to the collection.
It took a little bit of a deviation from the first, but thats why its the 3rd installment right?

The only drawback was there could have been more violence.
If the entire reason you loved the original was the violence, you may be left wanting more.

I personally would have a better time selling this film to regular movie watchers,
and maybe a harder time of those who's normal viewing experience to be the scenes of torture and extreme that occupy todays horror cinema.

Like most people here, I was a huge fan of the original ThanksKilling. It came out right when I was in college and I spent many nights in my dorm room watching this movie with my friends.

On the surface level, ThanksKilling Three is very different than TK1. The filmmakers were trying to be much more epic in their scope and storytelling. And it flat out looks like a studio quality movie with the better production value they were able to get. But at it's core it still has the same ridiculous, never take me serious for a single moment feel to it as the first one did. I will admit that I do miss a certain element of the campiness to the first one, but I definitely enjoyed this movie just as much, if not more, than the original. Their whole approach is to screw with the audience, and this movie did so from the very beginning. Even before it was released they skipped their own sequel! And the third movie is about the second, which never even existed! The layers of ridiculousness just never end with the ThanksKilling movies. And a talking space worm that turns into a hot dog for random moments? It's definitely random like that at times, but then again so is taking a crap in a coffee pot like the first ThanksKilling did. And it still has boobs in the first second, which always makes me happy.

If you like South Park, Tim and Eric, and Wonder Showzen mixed with Jim Henson's darker 80's puppet movies like Dark Crystal and Labyrinth then this movie is for you. I recommend watching it really stoned.
