Trivia

The central tagline, "Gobble, gobble, motherf*cker!", was thought of before the movie's actual plot. See more »

Goofs

The film takes place in New England at Thanksgiving time. The characters are walking around in shorts and short sleeved shirts. If the filmmakers had spent any time in New England in November, they would know that it's way too cold to walk around in shorts and short-sleeved shirts. See more »

I've seen worse.
23 February 2019 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

I must be stupid because I was expecting an actual horror movie. It's not horror or a thriller and it's barely a comedy. All the comedy is in the fact that nothing makes sense. They tried hard to make it as dumb as possible, thinking that was funny. It really wasn't. I only laughed at the song the nerd sings about the redneck. But if you're going to watch watch a movie about a killer turkey you can't have high standards. I'm definitely going to watch the sequel.
