Pesky kids gone turkey lurkey
18 December 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Turkey Hollow is a Lifetime movie that has been Disneyfied with the help of Jim Henson's muppet like creatures and an unfinished story ideas from him.

Whimsically narrated by Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, it tells the story of a newly divorced dad who takes his two kids for a vacation at his quirky aunt's organic farm in Hollow Hoodoo which is famed for having a mythical monster in the woods.

One of the children upsets the neighbouring farmer by letting his factory farmed turkeys loose and he demands compensation or the deeds of the aunt's farm.

This is a silly but enjoyable film aimed at kids. The puppet monsters maybe turn up a little too late, the bad guy and his henchmen maybe play it a bit too broad. Taken at the right spirit it is mildly enjoyable.
