As bad as this sounds there is so much more that combines on so many levels to make this one of the very worst of the worst. This is worse than anything by Ed Wood or Al Adamson. My favorite diversions in the movie are twofold. First, director Brad Grintner (you see a lot more of him in the DVD extras) narrates this whole mess with a pro-religion, anti-drug, anti-giant mutant murdering turkey monologue, which I could make neither heads nor tails of. In the manner of William 'One Shot' Beaudine and Ray Dennis Steckler, he clearly did the narrative all in the first take, so you get a bonus of Grintner lighting cigarettes, smoking, and having horrible hacking coughing fits on camera. The second delicious diversion in the film is the scene right after Herschell becomes the turkey monster when he reunites with his girlfriend. I won't spoil it for you, but it's certainly a scene that you will never forget. I won't say more on the subject other than that I guarantee that you will love this film.Read more ›
The entire film is a load of laughs, and if you're looking for a so called "cult movie", you've found one on my top ten. Here's a drive-in cheese-pleaser will leave you needing one more helping of this undiscovered holiday classic.
for a novelty, its pretty fun, but not something you'd really wana see on your shelf. $15 is a bit much for this movie.
Is it worth your time? Well, if you are interested in conventional cinema with a coherent plot, reasonable sounding dialog, halfway decent special effects, and in focus camera work . . . probably not.
The `so bad that it is good' factor, the gore (which is substantial for the time), and the ridiculous looking turkey-headed killer, contribute to the film's cult appeal. Steve Hawkes, stars in the film that he co-wrote and co-directed with Brad Grinter, who appears as a cigarette smoking narrator.
If you find your curiosity peaked by a man who eats chemically altered turkey and is transformed into a crazed turkey-headed killer, slaying young women to drink their blood, you might try renting Blood Freak, or look for it on TMC Underground, before you consider shelling out the big bucks for the currently discontinued DVD release. The DVD does have a number of extras that may add to your appreciation of this oddity.
This is a masterpiece of horrible cult cinema, probably the worst film ever made. That's exactly why I'm giving this film 5 stars! As bad as it is, it's still more entertaing than so called "good" film's. Not recommended...but GO BUY IT NOW!
