Friday Night Drive-In

I have three Thanksgiving traditions. One is dinner, of course, two is football, and the third is one that I've only recently begun, in fact this will only be my third time doing it, a viewing of Thankskilling. This is without a doubt one of the stupidest things you are ever likely to see, but it's so hilariously bad that I can't help but laugh at it. There's a ridiculous origin story involving Pilgrims and Indians, and a curse which causes a homicidal turkey who is resurrected every 510 years to wreak havoc.

This movie has everything you want in your B horror movie. Terrible acting, terrible effects, blood, gore, nudity, and it's only a little over an hour long. I literally laugh until I cry every time I watch it. This turkey is a master of disguise, he mercilessly kills, rapes, and yes, even CARJACKS his way through this entire movie. I literally can't think of a better way for you to spend your Thanksgiving evening than by finding a way to watch this movie. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find it to post here in the Drive-In tonight, so you're gonna have to settle for the trailer. But the full movie is available on Netflix streaming, and I'm sure there are other options out there. Point being, do whatever you have to do, but don't miss this movie. Happy Thankskilling!

Watched this a couple years ago. I kinda laughed once, when the turkey told the topless (and rather homely) pilgrim chick "Nice tits, bitch." After that, I lost all interest. Still, a timely Thanksgivin' selection, I suppose.
