Gobble Gobble, Mother F*cker!

First off, Happy Thanksgiving! It's hard to believe that it has finally arrived. I swear, it barely feels like November has started and now it is practically over. However, it is not over and it is Thanksgiving! This ghoul has been dying to share this movie review for a while now, but has never felt like it was the right time. I love horror movies as you all know and I love ones that take place during a specific holiday. In fact, I have a favorite one for every season! When New Years Day comes along I like to watch new Years Evil. Valentine's Day is when I watch My Bloody Valentine and Valentine. St Patrick's Day should be obvious, but in case you are dense, I watch The Leprechaun. I could go on, but I don't want to spoil any future movie reviews.

Unfortunately, there aren't many Thanksgiving horror flicks. Sad, but true. There are actually only four. You have Home Sweet Home, Blood Freak, Thanxgiving, and ThanksKilling. The one that I have seen the most times, for some ungodly reason, is ThanksKilling. This movie is about a group of five college kids that run into a homicidal turkey that hunts them down to kill them one by one. If you think that is insane, then you will never believe that there two sequels that follow this. I wish I was kidding.

I'm not sure if this movie will peak your interest, but if you like low budget, B rate horror, then maybe this one is for you. PS when I mean low budget I am talking $3500 budget.... literally! A movie so ridiculous that the catch phrase, "Gobble Gooble, mother fucker!" was written before the plot was developed. The turkey puppet was constructed from old special fx materials by the director in his apartment bathroom. The body of the puppet was a foam, decoy hunting decoy. This is why you never see the turkey's feet. When audition time came they were held in a garage.

Final summation: If you like bad horror movies with ghetto talkin turkey's and porn star cameos, then give this a whirl... otherwise, you will be disappointed.... severely disappointed! Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. HAHAHA this looks like a turkey in every sense of the word! Definitely MST3K material. I'll have to keep my eyes open--love dreadful movies! And this reminds me of an old horror novel I found when working at the bookstore called "Night of the Crabs" haha
