Taken from KillingBoxx.com Troma has long been the leaders in bad taste cinema the world over and with the release of Poultrygeist they have outdone themselves. Pushing the boundaries once again and stepping into the same toxic waste that produced such classics as Toxic Avenger, Class of Nuke ’em High, Tromeo and Juliet and so […]
POULTRYGEIST is being Plucked & Clucked about the WORLD OVER!
"Troma's Best Movie"
The editors of Entertainment Weekly are screaming:
“Skeletons being tossed in a dumpster, possession by chicken spirits, a lesbian make-out, and a worker being chewed up by a meat grinder… Now we’re talking!”in their four-page photo-filled feature.
“A cinematic masterpiece! The mad genius who brought the world THE TOXIC AVENGER is back!”
“POULTRYGEIST is Lloyd Kaufman’s ultimate slapstick-gore movie, and I couldn’t get enough of it… It’s completely mind-expanding.”
“It will destroy any of the good feelings you still have about the fast food industry!”
“HILARIOUS! Definitely something you guys need to see to believe!”
“A masterpiece… It’s like FAST FOOD NATION meets SHAUN OF THE DEAD”
“The best film Troma’s ever produced, and certainly Lloyd Kaufman’s most accomplished. It’s also smart, smart-assed, ambitious, hilarious… Poultrygeist redefines what Troma is capable of as a studio.”
And The New York Times, New York Magazine, Rue Morgue, New York Post, Canal+, Fox News, Nerve, SuicideGirls, Los Angeles Daily News, CNN’s Showbiz Tonight, The WB, CBS Radio, and newspapers and magazines around the world can’t stop talking about it!
All Things Considered host Andrea Seabrook tonight championed Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, saying it’s “one movie I am dying to see… man, I am excited for that one!” Listen to the full piece at NPR
Oh, Bloody Disgusting, how we love you. And how we missed your review of Poultrygeist, I’ll never know! But here at Tromaville, every so often, something manages to slip through the cracks. Review from Joris Westerdaal Bad acting, cheap special effects, offensive humour, bad singing, dysfunctional nudity, zombie-chickens and Lloyd Kaufman wearing a thong! All […]
Well… the “Top 10 Films of 2007 That You Never Heard Of”, that is. Hooray for PopMatters! #3 – Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead Sadly, the Troma trademark has been turned into a tag for all that is dumb, dopey, schlocky, and stupid. Frankly, nothing could be further from the truth, perfect proof arriving […]
“The results are in: Poultrygeist is a winner… Hilarious musical numbers!… Sick, over-the-top kill scenes… It’s goofy. It’s sick. It’s funny as hell… I applaud Kaufman and the folks at Troma for delivering a fun, nasty, funny sing-a-long that I can sink my teeth into.” Read the full review over at KillerFilm.com!
Don’t miss the newest issue of Rue Morgue, Issue 73, which calls Poultrygeist “a tasty, greasy, genetically modified and factory-farmed treat! An unqualified return to form!”
Oh, and it also mentions that “the film actually boasts more blood, vomit, explosive diarrhea, decapitations, eviscerations and completely gratuitous toplessness than any Troma film in recent memory.”
And did we squeeze in the quote that it’s also “a hilariously foul-mouthed mash-up of Hair, Rocky Horror and more”? No? Well, there you go.
(Most important, of course, perhaps more important than the rest of the three-page photo-filled feature, was the line that “Andy Deemer and Kiel Walker did a great job producing the film.” The film, which they do call “vastly superior” to other Troma works. Oh, the unbridled fame.)
Coming soon to a theater near you? We hope so! Call the theaters and urge them to book Poultrygeist!!!
“Probably the funniest thing I’ll see on film this year!” the review cries out. MovieForum then urges you all to “beg, plead, and threaten your local movie houses into booking it—more than ever it seems, the future of anarchic, truly independent cinema depends on your voice…”
Help us to get Poultrygeist shown worldwide!!! Call your local movie theaters today!
Yep, the great Twitch (“spreading the news on strange little films around the world”) reviewed Poultrygeist today, and they had this to say: “Kaufman’s film is an exercise in human filth, social impertinence, cultural intolerance, gore, nudity doused in profuse volumes of bodily fluid. But, Poultrygeist is also a celebration of American independent cinema. It […]
After a decade of ignoring Troma, it’s nice that Fangoria has finally found cause to start embracing the company again. That’s right: they’re still cheering about Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead!!! In today’s write-up of Toronto After Dark, they select Poultrygeist as one of the films worth covering, and hail it as: “Vintage Lloyd Kaufman!… An alternately hilarious and stomach-churning exercise in really bad taste that makes SOUTH PARK look like classic Ingmar Bergman by comparison.”

In advance of this weekend’s Toronto screenings, Canadian weekly NOW Magazine screams:
“It’s been 22 years since schlockmeister extraordinaire Lloyd Kaufman staked his claim to the cult cinema crown with The Toxic Avenger. Now he’s back with what he says is his final movie as director, Poultrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead… and he’s going out on a disgusting, disturbing and wholly degenerate high note…. Easily the grossest movie at this year’s TAD. “
