What if NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD and FAST FOOD NATION were ground together in the bowels of a meat grinder' Find out in this awesomely disgusting--and disgustingly awesome--satire from director Lloyd Kaufman (THE TOXIC AVENGER). When a fast food chain builds a restaurant on an Indian burial ground, people begin to die in disgusting ways that would only happen in a Troma film. Meanwhile, a man named Arbie (Jason Yachanin) is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend Wendy (Kate Graham). But his new employment at the American Chicken Bunker restaurant, Wendy's new girlfriend Micki (Allyson Sereboff), and evil chicken spirits threaten to ruin his plans.
Description by Ryko Distribution:
From Director Lloyd Kaufman, President of Troma Studios and the Creator of The Toxic Avenger comes Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead! When the American Chicken Bunker, a military themed fast food restaurant, builds its latest chain restaurant on the site of an ancient Native American burial ground, the displaced spirits take revenge on unsuspecting diners and transform them into chicken zombies! Now, it's up to a dimwitted counterboy, his collegiate lesbian ex-girlfriend and a burqa-wearing fry cook to put an end to the foul feathered menace once and for all. A sly mix of social satire, extreme gore, slapstick comedy and toe-tapping musical numbers, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is the wildest and best-reviewed movie in Troma's 35 Year History!
