I haven’t spent any time posting here about my time at Troma, but I plan to, all in due course. Until then, I want to share with you, my loyal readers (all two of you), a paragraph of a great review over on DVDTalk:
If you don’t already appreciate Troma’s style, this one isn’t likely to change your mind but those who ‘get it’ will find a lot to love about this mammoth three-disc collection. Poultrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead is a terrific return to form for Kaufman and Troma and the film is as hilariously entertaining as it is an equal opportunity offender. Crass, juvenile, and genuinely disgusting, it’s never the less a clever and creative film and Troma has pulled out all the stops with this jam-packed release. Highly recommended.
Poultrygeist! is a special film to me, which seems odd to say, given its subject matter. Special for two reasons: 1) it’s the one film that I saw from its genesis all the way to completion while I was still with the company, and 2) from a purely egocentric standpoint, it’s the one Troma film that actually has my name in the credits.
So, for the uninitiated, watch the trailer above and then go and pick up Poultrygeist! Night Of The Chicken Dead exactly one week from today: Tuesday, October 28, 2008 — just in time for Halloween! Available in local big box retailers everywhere, as well as Amazon.com, and the Troma Studio Store!
