Poultry in motion!

If the awesomeness of the Vegan Black Metal Chef isn't enough to turn you off meat forever, then perhaps today's Troma offering will do the trick. Poultrygeist shows the unfortunate consequences when fast food is combined with a cursed Indian burial ground (is there any other kind?).

American Chicken Bunker is a KFC-like franchise (but with a military theme) that is quickly punished by an uprising of zombie chickens for locating its newest store on sacred land. Our hero, Arbie, is on the case, though, and discovers that the spirits of the disgruntled Native Americans and those of the slaughtered chickens are in cahoots to make this a haunting of epic proportions. As with many things in life, beer takes care of the problem, but not before much Troma-rrific carnage ensues.

Poultrygeist was directed by Lloyd Kaufman in 2006 and was one of the few in-house Troma films made between 2000's Citizen Toxie and 2013's Return to Nuke 'Em High Vol. 1. With two Nuke 'Em High films coming in rapid succession, though, maybe this signals the coming of another high production heyday for Troma. The end of Poultrygeist doesn't leave much room for a sequel, but who knows. Stranger things have certainly happened in Tromaville.

Hungry for some drive thru? Maybe check out this cautionary tale first:
