Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006)
-Review by Nic Brown-
When asked to describe his newest film; Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, Troma Studios founder and the film’s director Lloyd Kaufman says: “It’s a shot by shot re-make of that historical comedy Schindler’s List only instead of Jews you have the spirits of Native American’s from their desecrated burial ground combining with the spirits of the billions of chickens slaughtered in concentration coops to create really pissed off Chicken/Indian zombies”.
Kaufman’s description sums up the plot of the Poultrygeist pretty well. When mega-conglomerate American Chicken Bunker builds their newest franchise on the site of the ancient Tromahawk burial grounds, more than just the local chapter of C.L.A.M. (College Lesbians Against Mega-conglomerates) is upset and the stage is set for supernatural vengeance…. Oh and a whole lot of nudity, gore, obscene language and the over the top humor which is the trade mark of Troma Studios.
The story follows Arbie (Jason Yachanin), who’s girlfriend Wendy
(Kate Graham) went off to college only to leave him for Micki
(Allyson Sereboff), the leader of C.L.A.M.. Now determined to win
back Wendy from her lesbian lover Micki, or at least get them to let
him in on a ménage-a-trios, Arbie goes to work for the new ACB. Only
now Arbie and Wendy must find a way to deal with the ruthlessly
violent chicken zombies awakened by the desecration.
