      Critics Consensus

      Poultrygeist may be relentlessly tasteless and juvenile, but it's also a lively slice of schlocky fun.

      Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel Rated: 2/5 May 13, 2009 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Even though Troma's gore and T&A quotients may be high, the films remain a matter of the flesh being willing but the production values weak. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 18, 2008 Full Review Al Hoff Pittsburgh City Paper Like an extra-value meal, Poultrygeist offers plenty of what Troma fans want... Oct 7, 2019 Full Review Lucius Gore ESplatter Kaufman is one of the last great trash filmmakers. Rated: 3/4 Nov 25, 2008 Full Review Chad Greene Boxoffice Magazine Kaufman manages to surprise with the extremes he takes his customary combination of low budget and high camp to in Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead.

      Carmelo C Rob, I won't forget this Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/12/24 Full Review Garrett Mitchell Thought it was very funny and pretty gorey, it was stupid as hell with lots of moments that make you say wtf, overall pretty decent watch. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/07/23 Full Review Audience Member I was ready for it to be over with after 45 minutes despite there still being an hour to go. I kept watching because.... it's anti-propaganda, however, it is exploitive and gratuitous whether it thinks it is or not and it is disgusting as it is set in a fast food restaurant with a lot of juvenile bathroom humor. The last half hour is pretty twisted. 2 1/2 of 5 Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Lloyd Kaufman has gone full-on insane in this drunk love letter to 80s straight to VHS cinema. Gross, wrong and borderline stupid, but fun as hell, even if about 20 minutes too long. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Just as tasteless, schlocky, and borderline pornographic as you could hope for from Lloyd. Anarchic parody of the American dream wrapped in feces. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member It had some okay humor but it ended up becoming redundant at some point, and the "musical" element added in was pretty terrible. I wouldn't recommend wasting your time with this one unless you are interested in racist jokes or poorly produced gore scenes.
