Okay, I'm gonna make this short and sweet...as ludicrous as the title & theme song sound this movie is pretty much cluckin' brilliant.
Underneath all the amusing gore gags and gruesome deaths there is a spoof of the seminal Tobe Hooper classic Poltergeist. The film also does a good job of highlighting some important issues concerning fast food, capitalism, consumerism, racism & terrorism in the World as well as the work place.
I didn't mention the zombie chickens did i? or the singing and dancing Lloyd Kaufman? That's right yolks (I'll stop the puns) Poultrygeist is also a musical!
The story revolves around 2 high school sweethearts, Arbie (Jason Yachanin) & Wendy (Kate Graham). For those who don't cotton on too quickly or UK readers the names are taken from 2 American fast food giants Arby's and Wendy's. Before Wendy's due to go to college the pair decide to bump uglies in a Tromahawk Indian burial ground and promise that no matter what happens they will always stay true to each other. However a semester later, Arbie returns to what was once the location of that night only to find it's been replaced by a fast food enterprise, the American Chicken Bunker and to his surprise his beloved Wendy has been also transformed into a 'left-wing, lipstick lesbian liberal'. With the act of revenge rolling around his mind Arbie decides to get a job at the American Chicken Bunker. And that my friends is when the fun begins...
So on that note, I leave you with this,
Go watch this now, now, NOW!
