Turkey Day is Coming
Before we know it, we will be sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner so before you eat that turkey, give it a few minutes of thought. After seeing “ThanksKilling”, I doubt that you will ever think about “the bird” in the same way again.
The plot of the film is totally ridiculous and the film comes across as a comedy. Here we have a talking killer turkey that has the ability to trick people and the plot will have you laughing out loud. If you’re a fan of camp, this is a film that you will love. It is amateurish, silly and so much fun. The style is quick with cutting and awkward shots to add to the humor. I’m not sure if this is a horror film or a parody as some scenes look like standard scenes from horror films but twisted in crazy ways– the standard sex scene, the meeting of the victims, the killing of the bad guy, and the “He’s finally dead. No, wait he’s right there!” scene are all here and twisted to the point of complete ridiculousness. The movie is best enjoyed with some friends, and if you want to have fun, you’re going to. If you come into it with a serious attitude you’re looking in the wrong place.
Five college stereotypes—the jock, the slut, the fat pig, the nerd and the good girl all go home for the holidays but on the way, the car they were traveling in broke down and they decide to camp out until morning. What they did not know was that they were camping in a place where a century before, a turkey was “necromanced”, by an Indian shaman and trained to kill white folks. Don’t you know that this turkey was trained to kill at certain times and it just so happened that this was the time. The turkey first kills the kids’ families and then goes after them one by one. Luckily they found a book that has instructions on how to kill the turkey but they must catch him first.
There is a lot of gore and some very funny jokes and all in all, the film is so bad that you cannot help but love it. We all have seen some movies that were intentionally bad and they stayed that way but this turkey actually succeeds because it is so bad—why just the idea of a talking killer turkey…
The cast includes: Lance Predmore, Lindsey Anderson, Chuck Lamb, Natasha Cordova, Ryan Francis and an appearance by adult-film star Wanda Lust. Just keep in mind that there is nothing typical about this film.
