The opening scene was originally written and planned to be much more extravagant involving an entire Native American and Pilgrim dinner scene. Time and money quickly ran out and the scene was never shot. See more »
The sheriff is sitting at the table with the killer turkey wearing a turkey costume for the annual ball. The turkey kills the sheriff and when it shows him hiding the sheriff's body, the sheriff isn't wearing the costume. See more »

a BAD movie that is a parody of bad movies.
This ultra-super-duper-excessively cheap film is something you just need to see to appreciate. It starts a cheesy looking turkey puppet who goes on a murderous rampage--all during which he makes cheesy and occasionally funny comments. It also features the puppet having sex with a teen as well as one funny scene where he sits and has coffee with an off-duty cop and a song montage that made my brain hurt.
Considering that the folks who made "ThanksKilling" meant to make a bad film and had almost no budget whatsoever, it's a hard film to review. Yes, it is bad--but they knew they were making a bad movie when they made it and there is no attempt to make anything other than a very stupid film. So, if you do watch it, you should be the sort of person who likes terrible films AND you have a high tolerance for the vulgarity and deliberately gratuitous nudity. As for the nudity, I normally don't want it in films, but it was rather funny how they used it--as a way of making fun of the gratuitous nature of slasher films. As for the language, it's very, very crude and dumb...but again, that IS what they were looking for! This is NOT a film to show your mother or Father Jenkins (unless your mother or Father Jenkins are sociopathic murderers).
Impossible to really rate. See it and you'll see why. And, I really have no idea if I liked it or not!
