Under the Radar DVD of the Week: "Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead
This week, the oddest DVD to appear on release lists is:
New to Blu-ray is this 2006 horror comedy from that zestfully tasteless purveyor of the weird, wacky and crude, Troma Entertainment. This spicy bit of lunacy describes what happens when a fast-food chicken franchise is built on a sacred American Indian burial site that is rife with restless spirits. The result: zombie chickens!
Director Lloyd Kaufman and writers Daniel Bova and Gabriel Friedman are apparently suckers for shameless fast-food puns as they populate the tale with a hapless hero named Arbie; his lesbian sweetheart, Wendy; the blustery General Lee Roy, founder of the American Chicken Bunker franchise, and a bevy of fast-food workers with names like Denny, Carl Jr. and Jose Paco Bell. The wink-wink silliness reaches a self-referential zenith in the name of the sorely offended Indian tribe – the Tromahawks.
