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.
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.Read more ›
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.
If you didn’t know already, the first THANKSKILLING was a huge cult success and was featured in Maxim Magazine, Fangoria, FearNet, and on TMZ and Fox News. All the major genre news sites covered it, including Bloody-Disgusting, Aint It Cool News, and Arrow In The Head. This follow-up was completely funded by fans on a Kickstarter campaign that raised $100,000, which makes it the highest funded horror feature on Kickstarter to date!
THANKSKILLING 3 is very crazy and, as such, will not appeal to some audiences. You have to go into this film expecting puppet-crazed insanity, not a Michael Bay-budgeted production. If you are looking for laughs filled with gore-covered fun, then you’re at the right place.
The film is shot pretty well overall for what it is, but as you would expect, the acting isn’t too great. Likewise, the special effects are horrendous...but these aspects are what make the film so much fun. You have to keep watching to find out what the production team does next!
As before, Turkie throws out his trademark one-liners as he piles up a body-count.Read more ›
