Zombie Chickens

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is cinema’s first chicken-zombie horror-comedy.

Poultrygeist is both a satire of the zombie genre, and an assault on the fast-food industry’s stranglehold on America. Director Lloyd Kaufman states that “... giant, devil-worshipping conglomerates today control the food & media we consume—and it’s the media that perpetuates the hegemony of a restaurant industry that is literally killing us and turning us into McNugget- craving zombies.” Poultrygeist continues Troma Entertainment's long history of cinematic political activism. The film tells the story of mass-exterminated chickens possessed by the souls of massacred Native Americans, who then take revenge on unsuspecting fast-food patrons and workers.
Opening May 9, 2008, New York City.
Village East Cinema, 12th St & 2nd Ave, NY
Afterparty @ Fontana's, 105 Eldridge St at Grand in the Lower East Side
