Humans… the other white meat… Unless you’re black, then it’s dark meat… Or if you are asian, then it’s yellow meat… Or if you are Native American, it’s red meat…
Arbie and Wendy are two young teens who have fallen in love with each other. When Wendy heads off to college their relationship turns cold and they lose contact. A couple of years later, Arbie walks past a protest rally that are against the opening of a new fast food restaurant that have been built on an ancient Indian burial ground.
Among the protesters, Arbie catches Wendy. Wendy has now become a lesbian and that causes Arbie to annoy Wendy by taking a job at the new fast food restaurant. It doesn’t take long before the spirits of the Indians team up with the hundreds of dead chickens to form possessed chicken zombies (or is it zombie chickens?) who wants to destroy this establishment and everyone involved with it.
Poultrygeist is a satiric take on the American fast food industry. It’s filled with gore, slime, boobs, action, comedy and even musical scenes! That might sound like most Troma films, but this is one of their good efforts!
