Another review posted here has pretty well summarised the film's quality, the satire underlying the thrills and spills of undead-chickens-under-native-american-curse, but I would like to make it clear that this DVD, along with all Troma's releases, are Region free. When I first bought their films, I was nervous because amazon lists them as region 1 as they come from America, and often the region 2 versions are unavailable, and sometimes it was hard to even tell which was which!
I had to be persuaded by a friend that I wouldn't be wasting my money on a disk that wouldn't play in England.
No fear! Troma is worldwide, baby!
I'm going to make the same thing clear on a few of their other films listed on amazon so international buyers aren't put off or unsure. No one should miss out on this classic!

To set the scene... A young couple (Wendy and Arbie) are making out in the Tromahawk Tribe Indian Burial Ground when they are disturbed by an axe wielding, self-abusing lunatic. (And the living dead but they didn't notice that part).

1 year later and the couple are back at the site of the burial ground only it's been replaced with a new fast food restaurant and unfortunately for Arbie his girlfriend Wendy is now a left wing liberal lipstick lesbian and has no interest in rekindling their love life.

Wendy is with a group of protesters who are clearly not happy with the restaurant so Arbie decides to apply for a job there as an act of defiance. Oh wait, did I mention it's also a musical? Anyway, one song later and Arbie is now working as a counter girl, skirt included.
Something is not right in the restaurant though, especially the mysterious, vein covered, pulsating eggs.

Highlights include, cameo appearances by Troma regular Ron Jeremy and none other than Lloyd Kaufman himself. Lots of toilet humor, topless ladies, blood and guts. Everything you could want from a Troma movie.

If you want to see a fat man poop himself out of his skin, a talking homosexual Mexican burger or the Jaws Indianapolis speech redone as a tale of delivering chickens, then this is the movie for you.
Over-the-top, very un-PC and just downright hilarious.
I enjoyed every chicken fried minute.

Format: DVD
Troma, the veritable indie Movie Production Company has recently celebrated more than 40 years in the business of hamming-up the exploitation scene - Thanks to Lloyd Kaufman and his ilk, we as a Global Village now have the option of viewing such gems as "Troma's War", "Surf Nazis Must Die", "Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD" and, of course, the veritable and genre-defining "Toxic Avenger". We must avoid cocking a snook at these films; they are sometimes hilarious, and almost always irreverant and unafraid to offend even the most powerful in society. Unfortunately Troma has suffered financial meltdown in recent years - "Poultrygeist" has taken four years from gestation to release date, but in some ways this has been a boon... This movie feels like a Labour of Love for Kaufman, and the long production window has allowed the Creative Team to throw every bell and whistle they could muster into the mix. In other words, this film feels like every Mondo / Slasher movie ever made has been rounded up, mashed together and assembled by (a Blind Peruvian Watchmaker's) hand. It's a Frankenstein's Monster. It's fantastic.

And for what would normally be considered a "dumb" genre, this movie is a damn smart satire as well - wrapping up critique of today's War on Terror/Fast Food Nation conundrum in a covering of gore and B-Movie cliche. Arby (Jason Yachanin, probably chosen for the part due to his resemblance to Kaufman) takes a job at gormless franchise American Chicken Bunker after his Lesbian-activist girlfriend Wendy leaves him for another woman.. the very franchise Wendy is currently protesting with her new lover. Oh! But did we mention that the aforementioned Burger Joint has been built on an Ancient Indian Burial Ground? Surely not.

!!!!Warning!This review may contain Salmonella!!!

Despite protests, the American Chicken Bunker chain build an outlet on top of a sacred American Indian burial ground in Tromaville. Head chickadee General Lee Roy(Rob Watkins) evens turns up to promote his tasty morsels. Meanwhile, affable loser Arbie(Jason Yachanin), pining for his ex-girlfriend Wendy(Kate Graham) who has eloped with militant Lesbian anti-Chicken Bunker campaigner Micki(Allyson Seraboff), decides to join the fast food empire and gets a job as a counter girl. However, there's something nasty bubbling away in the Bunker kitchen, something feathered, beaked and ready to eggsact revenge on those who disrespected the sacred burial ground. The night of the Native American zombie chicken has started, and workers and protesters alike soon realise its time they counted their chickens.
This hilarious film is a real triumph for Lloyd Kaufman and Troma. It's laugh a minute stuff, and is a winning mix of over the top gore, catchy musical numbers(I dare you not to sing along!), vomiting, diarrhoea and deliciously incorrect humour. Its targets are so wide ranging(i.e everybody)that it can't be criticized for offending any group in particular. The great climatic scenes of bloody chicken carnage rival Peter Jackson's Braindead for sheer outrageous gore quotent, and you'd have to be a very hard person not to fall in love with cute little Paco, the militant homosexual chicken sandwich. Eggcellent eggxtras too. I suggest you just capon going to your local dvd store and pullet a copy of this great movie from the shelf. Its better than a bargain bucket. 5 out of 5
