This is why you should never build a fried chicken restaurant on top of an ancient Indian burial ground.

My oh my... I don't know how to respond to a movie such as this.  I don't think I could make it through it with my sanity in good condition.  On the other hand, I think I discovered the most insane movie ever created.

Anyways, good review as usual.  Since it takes quite a while now for you to do a movie review, maybe it's time for a Guest Review?  But besides that, I have two questions.  How did you come across this film and how did it all end?

The best thing Troma has done in a long, long time.

Or the worst. 

Depends on your point of view!

Troma is so unsubtle, they are actually subtle.

Clearly, there are any number of restaurant chains featured in the film.

Arbi = Arby's
Wendy = Wendy's
Denny = Denny's
Carl jr. = Carl jr.

After those here are some more possibilities.

Paco Bell = Taco Bell
Micki = Mickey D's = McDonald's
General Lee Roy = Colonel Sanders = KFC

I'd definitely put this up as one of Troma's best.  The best use of that stock car crash, BY FAR, at least.

It's possibly their funniest film too.  I mean, it tried for laughs, and they actually WORKED.  It's not like some Troma films where you're purely laughing AT the movie, a lot of this stuff works exactly as it was meant to.  It's also their GORIEST film, which is saying something.  And, easily, their most disgusting. 

So basically, I approve.  I actually think 3 slimes is too low..  I'd give it an 8/10.

My complaints are similar though - there's a few scenes of filler which could have been trimmed down, and some of the songs also slow the film down a little too much.

My friends and I did a fake Poultrygeist commercial for our radio group Erratic Static back in the 80's! I love Tromo's trashy nature, so I just might have to get this one!

I'm totally with you on Micki.  Most of the time she was on screen, I was just like "Dude, seriously, put your shirt back on!"

BoyScoutKevin: There's another I picked up on: At the end of the song "Slow Fast Food Love", Arbi and Wendy make the signs for A&W, another hamburger joint (actually a rootbeer stand, but they sold burgers).

All in all I love this movie, it's totally trashy, and again, Troma sought out girls with the weirdest boobs they could find. I love the song "Slow Fast Food Love", as well as most of the musical scores.

Cool little video edit.

Ugh... I could barely finish this travesty. It was as pleasurable as dry-humping a sandy cedar deck! :thumbdown: :thumbdown:
A good pick for a "worst movie ever" list though!  :bouncegiggle:

We have a concept called "rentals" here in the US... I thought it would have made it over the pond by now.  :wink:

Oh God, this movie was vile. Really. And not funny. And there is no excuse for that.  It made that zombie sheep flick look like Oscar material.  I gave my three DVD set away so I would not die with that on my soul.

It is now 129.99* !!!!  :buggedout:

I've never seen a place that rents Troma films.








*I'm starting to regret not buying it when it was 30.

Aren't most DVD players in the UK multi-region capable?  Can't you just get the US dvd - or do they not handle NTSC -> PAL?

After the review I rented this from Netflix, which inexplicably had it in its inventory. I was speechless afterward. I can however say that I have never seen anything like it and I hope to never do so again.

To be honest, I haven't watched a Troma film in ages. The last one was Terror Firmer, which they claimed was based on Lloyd Kaufman's first book about Troma Studios. I think I wore out that book from the number of times I read it, it was so brilliant. Unfortunately, the alleged movie version had NOTHING to do with what was in the book. I guess it was an inside joke on the part of the studio itself, but I am still not amused.  :hatred:

Well, just reading this kinda made me think I'd vomit, so... I should definitely watch it when I get the chance. Thanks for the warning!

Actually got to see this in the theater. Pretty graphic of course, but it would be a favorite Troma movie if it wasn't for it being a musical. Thought that it ruined it a lot.

Poultrygeist was a lot of fun and the best thing that Troma had done in quite some time. I also found star Kate Graham to be unbelievably cute too!
