Consensus: Poultrygeist may be relentlessly tasteless and juvenile, but it's also a lively slice of schlocky fun.

Michael Ordoņa

A heaping helping of political incorrectness gleefully spiced to offend just about every sentient being.

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead is just about as perfect as a film predicated on the joys of projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea can be.

Lucius Gore

Kaufman is one of the last great trash filmmakers.

It's genuine sick fun, and there isn't a boring moment in it.

Ed Gonzalez
Village Voice

Open[s] with the best trying-to-unfasten-a-bra and zombie-finger-as-buttplug gags in movie history, which are closely followed by the most tasteless fisting scene since William Freidkin's Cruising.

A landmark achievement in the field of cursed-chicken-franchise horror musicals.

Every variation on "disgusting" you can think of -- and many you can't -- is here. It's a veritable "Cluckwork Orange," but without the sentimentality.
