Troma films is one of the longest running independent film companies around, their productions have featured some incredibly famous names and they have a huge cult following. They have also made some of the most polarising features that have ever existed. There is no real middle ground with Troma, you either find the comedy a breath of, admittedly rather insane, fresh air or juvenile rubbish.
Troma films have never been one to shy away from producing films so crazy and stupid that no one else would go near them. Take for example, Chopper Chicks in Zombie Town, Surf Nazis Must Die or the Toxic Avenger; these films are never going to be troubling the box office. But with no restraints they can get away with so much more than other film companies could ever dream of.
Because the company is well aware of their position in the industry they slip in as many vicious satirical swipes as possible, something that you wouldn’t expect from a movie whose focus is undead birds. This is what makes Troma films so interesting and what raises their releases above being standard b-movie fare. The stories themselves are hardly world beating, and at best they’re harebrained, but the writing is razor sharp and when the jokes land they really hit the target.
Poultrygeist opens with the construction of a new restaurant, the American Chicken Bunker- a non-too subtle assault on KFC- that has been built on a recently bulldozed Indian burial ground. A year before, teens Arbie and Wendy made love on this site, and now Wendy has joined a lesbian protest group and Arbie is working for ACB- times have indeed changed.
It turns out that no one is very well off though, as the ancient Indians buried underneath aren’t happy about their displacement and are back to show everyone their disapproval. Inhabiting the bodies of chickens past, the spirits ensure the humans stack up and the feathers fly. The real question though is will Arbie and Wendy be able rekindle their love in all this craziness, or like Tromeo and Juliet, will this be a love that won’t end happily.
