Storyline

When the American Chicken Bunker, a military-themed fried-chicken chain, builds a restaurant on the site of an ancient Indian burial ground, local protesters aren't the only ones crying fowl! The previous tenants, fueled by a supernatural force, take "possession" of the food and those who eat it, and the survivors discover that they must band together before they themselves become the other white meat! Film lovers have been starved for sustenance. The relentless diet of predictability and pretense Hollywood has been serving up just doesn't cut it. Poultrygeist is hearty food for thought. In Poultrygeist, Troma takes on the the fast-food industry-skewering the soulless restaurateurs-in the world's first horror-comedy film to feature zombie chickens, American Indians and a bit of singing and dancing! It's Poultrygeist! Written by Troma Entertainment

Trivia

Trey Parker and Matt Stone were set to have a cameo as Arbie's parents, but the scene was scrapped during shooting so the audience never sees the parents. While the movie was still in production, Parker and Stone were often credited for being in the film. See more »

Goofs

After Jared leaves the bathroom a hideous mess, Arbie calls it to Denny's attention. When Denny hands to mop to Arbie to clean it up, the mop is really dirty. When Arbie begins to clean, the mop is spotless. See more »

Quotes

Arbie: Say, where did you get this gun?
Mature Arbie: I've got a whole stash of them here. I keep them hidden here with the childrens' promotional items. I was going to be an alienated employee who kept to himself and then went on a murderous rampage this afternoon.

Troma fans unite, and rejoice at the release of POULTREYGIEST!
24 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film may be the most absurd, violent, gory offensive and hysterical film I have ever seen!

I loved every minute of it!

Troma fans delight, Lloyd has returned with a film definitely worth waiting all of these years for, and he pulls no punches and makes no appologies. There is at least one thing in this film to offend nearly everyone in the audience.

It is gleefully sick and twisted and made me laugh so hard that I cried and my stomach hurt. One person in the row with me nearly vomited!

It will not be coming to DVD for quite some time, so if this film comes to your town GO SEE IT AT ALL COSTS! You will not be disappointed!
