Critic Reviews for Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead
A heaping helping of political incorrectness gleefully spiced to offend just about every sentient being.
A landmark achievement in the field of cursed-chicken-franchise horror musicals.
Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is just about as perfect as a film predicated on the joys of projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea can be.
Open[s] with the best trying-to-unfasten-a-bra and zombie-finger-as-buttplug gags in movie history, which are closely followed by the most tasteless fisting scene since William Freidkin's Cruising.
Audience Reviews for Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead
Excessively ridiculous and over the top, Poultrygeist is yet another crazy film by the folks at Troma. This is yet another tasteless film, but it does it so well that it's just a fun ride from start to finish. The jokes are extreme, and quite funny. Acting wise, this film is cringe worthy, but that's what makes these films so unique. Troma films are purposely awful, and they do it masterfully. If you love these types of horror comedies, then you're sure to enjoy this trash opus that Lloyd Kaufman has directed. The film has all the usual traits that make up for an effective film in the studios library. The film has insane amounts of gore, and offensive humor and it is so extreme that you cannot help but laugh at how this film plays out. Poultrygeist is one of the most disturbing films that I have seen, and I've seen quite a few films that are disturbing. However with this one, the boundaries of good taste are pushed to the limits and it offers a unique viewing experience that you won't soon forget. This film should appeal to gorehounds and to any Troma fan, however if you're not used to their films, definitely stay away from this one, as this one is definitely not a flick for viewers who have weak stomachs. As a whole this is a very good horror comedy that succeeds at being totally off the wall with its content. This is sure to appeal to cult film fans, and quite original despite the extreme lack of good taste.
I have to say one thing, THIS IS THE MOST MESSED UP FILM I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE! Troma is known for doing films like this, but this is there most screwed up film, the gore is off the wall, and is so gross that its almost vomit inducing, and some of it is played for comedy, but its not it's freaking gross. Now don't get me wrong there are several moments that made me laugh quite a bit, but thats just when they start killing the zombie chicken people, but the rest is just gross out nudity drive in trash. If you are in the mood for a grossout disgusting film for halloween, you may check this out, but I doubt you'll like it.
Very surprisingly I really enjoyed this one! I'm not a big lover of Troma or musicals for that matter but I loved the outrageously offensive tone the film had. Certainly not for the politically correct brigade - it's racist, homophobic, islamophobic, sexist - pretty much everyone ends up on the end of an offensive joke. And of course the OTT disgusting gore effects played a part in my enjoyment of the film, really quite gross stuff on offerbut all with a comical edge to it. And the songs are really quite funny too. Well done Mr. Kaufman, it's my favourite Troma film by far!
