Fowl-mouthed villain Turkie carves through the likes of a rapping grandma, a mindless puppet, a wig-wearing inventor, a bisexual space worm, and their equally ridiculous friends on his quest to recover the last copy of "ThanksKilling 2".
At an exclusive, secluded North American ski resort up on Mount Rocky Summit, brutal slashing, severing and beheading on a group of teenagers are taking place and are believed to be the work of a mysterious skier dressed in black.
The title card "To be continued in space..." was placed in the movie as a complete joke, with no intention of any sequels. Nonetheless, a sequel, ThanksKilling 3 (2012), was released three years later. See more »
The opening scenes show a college campus in autumn with colorful leaves. The rest of the film (which was shot in summer) is shot amid green trees. See more »
OK, girl, get a grip. There's no such thing as an evil turkey. There is no such thing as an evil turkey. There is...
The Killer Turkey:
...No such thing as an evil turkey. Oh wait, I lied. Ha!
The Killer Turkey:
Agh! That hurts! Shut the fuck up, you stupid bitch! I'm gonna drink your blood like cranberry sauce, meanie!

Luckily this film is only about an hour long, because any more and it would get old really quickly. It is plain to see that as funny as the movie is, and as many good kills as it has, it did not have much steam to go any further.
I saw it on Netflix as a recommendation for a while and was like "oh, heck no" until one day when a friend of mine in Texas said it was a must-see. I gave it a chance, and was pleasantly surprised. The turkey (purportedly "the most demonic turkey in history") is so stupid, so vulgar, it is just hilarious. Hopefully that was the intent, because the acting is outrageously bad.
What could have made this film better? Probably everything. More nudity, better actors, a plot that makes sense (the 505 years thing did not add up right, as well as why it is apparently summer on Thanksgiving). But let us not try to make sense of nonsense. Let us just be thankful for the JonBenet Ramsey joke (which seems dated, but that adds to its charm).
Upon a second viewing, the film is just as stupid, but the stupidity came across as being even more intentional than I thought the first time. Someone here -- or maybe everyone -- has the mind of a genius, and they were given a video camera.
Apparently, they must have made a few dollars off of the movie, because as I type this (November 2012), there is now a sequel. Goodness, I am not sure if it could be any worse... or any better.
