Prehistoric Poultry (1916)

** (out of 4)

Three-minute short has a cavemen being part of a prank but thankfully his pet chicken is there to get revenge. The whole key to this film is whether or not you find the prank to be funny. If you do find it funny then I'm sure you'll enjoy the film as a comedy but I didn't find the prank to be too funny so that's why the movie didn't work for me. The claymation effects from O'Brien are fairly weak when you compare them to his earlier films dealing with the cavemen subjects but they are still fun to look at. The flying chicken sequence at the end was a real blast to watch as were a few of the earlier scenes with the chicken. The film doesn't run long enough to get into any type of story so that's why it's important to either find the prank funny or not. The film certainly isn't a bad one but it's probably the weakest I've seen from the director.
