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.

Never judge a movie by its DVD cover. That's about the only good thing about this film. I hate Troma. What fun is a bad movie if it's done so deliberately? It isn't.

Actually a decently made flick (distributed by Troma) but doesn't offer anything new (except Stacy Haiduk's luscious exposed breasts). Luther will have you sleeping with the chickens...errr fishes with boredom.

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]This dumb cluck of horror flick is all chicken scratch. We begin our sad, sad story many years in the past, where a [i]stupid, ugly little malformed brat[/i], that would be Luther, gets all freaked out when he witnesses a local side-show geek bite the head off a chicken. Then he gets his own teeth knocked out, and Hey-Presto, instant Jeffery Dahmer.[/color][/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Seriously.[/color][/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Yes, our dear little Luther grows up to be a psycho-killer ( qu'est ce que c'est...) Naturally, at his first parole hearing he is immediately released into the general public by a bunch of brain-dead bleeding hearts, or there would be no stinky moovie to sit through, and we'd all have to spend out time at KFC, eating a bucket of extra-crispy. Oh, and an-udder interesting detail: our very chic recently parolled psychopath sports metal teeth and clucks like a chicken all day. [/color][/font]
[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Really. [i]All day long[/i].[/color][/font]

[b][font=Comic Sans MS][size=4][color=black]:=8P[/color][/size][/font][/b]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Soooo, after ripping out the throats of various people and chickens with his metal choppers, this bad egg then besieges the farmhouse of a mother and her dumb, breasty daughter Beth, played vaccuously by Stacy Haiduk(tv series [i]SeaQuest[/i] and [i]The Kindred[/i]) . Haiduk's primary job in this flick is to [b]git nekkid[/b], and the MooCow moost say that our little henny penny goes at it with all the spunky aplomb of a drunken Tonya Harding shotgun-wedding. [/color][/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Luther torments and kills Breast...uhh, I mean Beth (bad moove!), her dopey boyfriend, and then kills the stupidest cop in Kansas City. He does so while cooing, clucking, and scratching like a chicken. [/color][/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Really, he does.[/color][/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Things then heat up when Luther cowfronts the top of the pecking order, Hilary (Joan Roth), Beth's mother hen(no, not [b]THAT[/b] Hilary, Luther wouldn't stand a chance...).[/color][/font]
[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]And where, you ask, do they stage their ultimate apocalyptic battle: in a barn? [b]Egg[/b]-actly! Yes, my friends, the stirring finale, sporting an [b][i]all-chicken clucking dialogue between Luther & the mother[/i][/b], has to been seen to be believed. It goes something like this:[/color][/font]

[center][font=Comic Sans MS][color=black][i]"Plucka-plucka-plucka!"[/i][/color][/font][/center]
[center][font=Comic Sans MS][color=black][i]"Plucka-plucka-plucka!"[/i][/color][/font][/center]
[center][font=Comic Sans MS][color=black][i]"Cock-a-doodle-dooo!"[/i][/color][/font][/center]
[center][font=Comic Sans MS][color=black][i]"Plucka!"[/i][/color][/font][/center]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]And so on, and so on, and so on...[/color][/font]

[color=black][font=Comic Sans MS]Really. I'm not making this up. [/font][/color]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]Writer/Director Carlton J. Albright must have had all his scrambled creative eggs in one shallow basket, because never again did he resurface after this fowl slow-roaster was fried, and rightfully so. Even as Balding Chicken-Clucking Psychopathic Metal Teeth-Wearing Geek moovies go, [b]Luther the Geek[/b] is painfully slow, murky, and stupid. You have to wonder which is worse, the egg-headed acting, the, paltry script, or the bird-brained direction. Yeah, you pretty mooch figure the crew really... winged this one.[/color][/font]

[font=Comic Sans MS][color=black]The MooCow says even if you feel like chicken tonight, keep this rotten egg in the henhouse. [/color][/font]
