"You just got stuffed!"

D+

For this movie I will not delve into its cinematographer, its special effects, or its director, absolutely nothing. Why you ask, because all of the aforementioned things are completely wretched in this movie. The acting sucks ass, the writing is even worse, making the whole film feel like a third-grader's after school project. It is in all fairness one of the worst movies of all time. The only worthwhile aspect of the whole movie is quite obviously the turkey, voiced by Jordan Downey, the director. Its one liners are amusing, and for that alone I actually enjoyed a few scenes. I've seen so many obscure horror flicks and have watched the likes of killer crocodiles, killer alligators (there is a difference you know), komodo dragons, mutated mosquitoes, bees, bioengineered rattlesnake/cobra hybrid, anacondas, sharks, killer whales, eh, the list is endless, but the turkey manages to be noteworthy. It's kind of like a permanent scar that at first bugs you and then you just get use to it.

As a horror parody, the film is decently funny. The problem is every second the turkey isn't on screen it gives one a headache. To make things worse, as short as the film is, they actually draw out the character relationships. I guess the co-eds they hired to do it wanted more screen time. If you do dare to watch this, please, have a few beers before doing so to avoid putting the barrel of a shotgun in your mouth.

And oh yeah, kudos to Wanda Lust with the cuddly knockers in the opening scene. I mean geez the movie literally starts off with an extreme close-up of her nipple before the camera zooms out. She will never live this down.
