Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead

Saturday, Nov 26, 2022 at 6:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Introduced by Lloyd Kaufman in person!

Dir. Lloyd Kaufman. 2006, 103 mins. DCP. With Lloyd Kaufman, Jason Yachanin, Kate Graham, Allyson Sereboff, Robin L. Watkins, Joshua Olatunde, Caleb Emerson. When an unscrupulous fast food chicken restaurant builds its latest location on top of ancient Native American burial grounds, the spirits of the disrespected dead exact their revenge on the diners by turning them into chicken zombies. To make matters worse, only a dim-witted group of Tromaville citizens is left to defeat this foul feathered menace. And, if all this weren’t enough, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is also a musical! This underrated underground gem is a perfect blend of trademark Troma madness and Kaufman’s cynical, crude black humor, representing a high point in the prolific cult filmmaker’s career.
