When a fast-food chicken franchise is built on a sacred Native American burial ground the result is zombie chickens! Realizing the threat, Arbie tries to rally his friends and destroy the mutant chickens.

Jason Yachanin (Arbie), Kate Graham (Wendy), Allyson Sereboff (Micki), Robin Watkins (General Lee), Joshua Olatunde (Denny), Caleb Emerson (Carl Jr.), Rose Ghavami (Humus/Dancer), Khalid Rivera (Paco Bell), Joe Fleishaker (Jared).

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead starts off looking like a B-movie and does nothing throughout the film to disprove the theory. The plot is thin and used simply as an excuse for crotch jokes, crude humor, and nudity. Some of the humor is funny but most just leaves us shaking our heads. By the half-way point the film is not much more than a background distraction while we find better things to do.

Acting was ridiculous. Yachanin was either very good, or quite poor. Graham appeared to try and take her role seriously, not realizing she was included because she will happily pop her top for anything. The remainder of the supporting cast felt inexperienced, clumsy, and lacking quality.

Camera work, sets, and backgrounds were interesting at times and a complete mess at others. Costuming was ridiculous throughout the film and it felt like some props were simply what was lying around at the moment. Dialogue was campy. Sound and soundtrack were mediocre at best.

Overall Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is a B-movie of the most ridiculous kind. Gratuitous sex, nudity, and sexual humor with a supernatural horror show-tune component thrown in for confusion. If you like that kind of thing you will probably love this film.

With some explicit disturbing sexuality, nudity, adult concepts, sexual humor, and more, save this one for the oldest teens and above.
