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

While mixing the sound in post, Gabe Friedman recalled how "sophomoric" that the sound effects were and felt that he was being insulted; the most egregious thing that had happened was every time a girl took their shirt off, a horrible cowbell noise was accompanied by random cartoon whistles. He remarked "They took the whole Flintstones library and threw it into our movie." and "...with the lack of respect from these sound designers (from the sound effects and everything), it's obvious that we are in shock and nobody likes us."

Goofs

A cantaloupe is clearly used for when Father O'Houlihan's head gets crushed; an artifical wig and pair of glasses are put over it, plus the head stump is visible. See more »

You'll laugh, you'll scream, you'll wish you hadn't eaten
24 August 2007 | by CarolynneDSee all my reviews

By offending absolutely everyone, POULTRYGEIST can offend no one ... and even if it did, they would be laughing too hard to do anything about it. Nothing is safe from ridicule in this gory TROMA comedy -- fast food people, lesbian people, fat people, Middle Eastern people, Latino people, zombie people, middle-aged male people in scout skirts and thongs ... they all get Tromatized! In addition to buckets of chocolate pudding, chicken guts and lime gelatin, this movie also contains singing and dancing, which sends an over-the-top film right over the edge. Bring a strong stomach, a sense of humor ... and any friends who don't take themselves too seriously.
