DVD of the Day #295: Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead

Ah Troma, so witty and smart but yet so fucking stupid and over the top with gore and titties.

For every thing this movie does right, like naming every major character after a fast food place (Carl Jr., Wendy, Arbie, Paco Bell, etc) or having amazingly catchy musical numbers, it does something horribly wrong like being two hours long or way too much florescent green vomit. In the end, I laughed at the movie as much as I sighed or rolled my eyes, which tends to be a Troma trademark. it’s not a good film by any means, but it’s also one of the few films that can get away with being HORRIBLY racist and yet funny because of it. Also, it’s the only movie where the romance climaxes with the line, “You had me as ‘Shit Covered Mongolid.’”

Basically the film is about a fast food chicken shack built on a Native American graveyard. As such, the patrons and workers, along with protestors from CLAM (College Lesbians Against Megaconglomerates) are attacked by zombie chickens and people possessed by by hybrid Native American/chikcen ghosts that turn them into were-chickens. There is a lot of gore, a lot of nudity, a lot of lesbian erotica, a lot of shit and blood and vomit and a lot of off-colour remarks. When the key to defeating the chicken-native american spirits is booze because Native Americans are all alcoholic drunks that can’t resist the white man’s liquor, you know you how to go “ouch.”

The acting isn’t great and you have to sit through a 15 minute Lloyd Kaufman montage and anti-Chinese rant before the film actually begins, but the movie is arguably Troma’s best, which isn’t saying much. I’m glad I saw it and the music is well done, but this is a poor man’s Evil Dead 2. When the movie is on, it is ON, but unfortunately the wit and candor is rare and the movie just sticks primarily to the usual Troma crap.

Is It Worth Keeping? No, but it was worth watching?
Rating: 5/10
