Movie Info

As a child, Luther Watts (Edward Terry) was deeply affected by seeing a circus geek (someone who bites the heads off live chickens in a circus sideshow). Finally paroled after serving 20 years in prison, he terrorizes the residents of his hometown by making chicken noises, crowing like a rooster and attacking people. He winds up at a farm run by a woman and her daughter, where he takes them captive and then starts killing off her neighbors. The mother realizes she and her daughter must escape before he kills them, too.more

Audience Reviews for Luther the Geek

It was really nice of that mental hospital to allow a patient, incarcerated because he killed three people, to allow him to make his own metal dentures. And it was also nice of the parole board to consider him perfectly healthy when he doesn't speak AT ALL, but just squawks like a chicken.

This might have worked if they had hired some folks who could act. Edward Terry is great as Luther, the REAL Mr. Chicken, but everybody else would benefit with a few acting lessons. But it is a Troma film and that's really all you need to know.

A man is let out of a mental hospital only to hold a young woman, her boyfriend and mother hostage in a secluded farmhouse. Doesn't sound very original. Except for the fact that said maniac wears metal dentures and....clucks like a chicken?? Luther The Geek is a very odd and intresting take on the slasher genre. If you could even call it a slasher flick. Bizarre film that the only reason one would like it is because it's so bizarre. Not for eveyone, but I must insist you stick around for the ending. It's a weird one.
