Lloyd Kaufman hosts Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead at the Music Box Theatre Midnight Movie, Midnight Friday and Saturday, April 17 & 18th!!!
Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is cinema’s first chicken-zombie horror-comedy… with musical numbers!
This is an amazing film, and one to see in all its big screen glory, surrounded by Chicago horror fans! Here's the Doc's review from last year:
"Troma Studios president and jack-of-all-trades Lloyd Kaufman once again assumes the position (in the director’s chair, that is), serving up a full tilt assault against fast food companies by way of a mutant zombie chicken infestation…with musical numbers.
This unbridled and unhinged romp sets out to leave no sacred cow unskewered, no nationality or religious belief unmaligned, no bodily excretion unsplattered, with said goals accomplished via a fervor rarely matched in the Troma canon. This may be Kaufman’s masterpiece, as he has for perhaps the first time assembled a cast – led by the appealing Kate Graham and Jason Yachanin – that exhibits genuine thespian talent along with the requisite Troma enthusiasm.
Even the raunchy songs are well done, although they do occasionally halt the narrative fowl freight train of mutating mayhem and murder. If you can’t have a good time watching this, you’re just not trying!"
