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

Poultrygeist: They do chicken right!
3 October 2018 | by tdrishSee all my reviews

Funny. Very funny, very comedic, and very over the top gore. Where can this movie go wrong? Apparently, in many directions. Easy to forgive? Sure. I'll forgive the toilet scene ( you probably can guess, just guess which angle you get to see it from), and I can forgive the 10 year old level writing the script possess. Llyod Kaufman, after all, is simply out for blood to make some good/bad horror films before he goes. He's already left a legacy behind, with Troma just overflowing like a sewer with titles spanning decades of mind numbing entertainment. In Poultrygeist, we'll explore what happens on an ancient Indian burial ground, when disaster strikes, and leaves chickens rising from the dead. Just kidding. Some humans turn into chickens. Think I'm kidding? Okay, the movie is a mess, but gore hounds are sure going to appreciate the blood shed, and there's no skimping out here! Over the top, but nevertheless disturbing. I don't want to spoil too much here, just rest assured the gore is off the charts insane! For the type of film that it is, I would say it will satisfy. For those who don't like it? Sorry. Maybe this is a warning that you should stay away from Troma, the same guy who brought you The Toxic Avenger. Seriously , people, what were you expecting?
