In true Troma form, no taboo is left unexplored, no stereotype unquestioned, no bodily secretion un-spewed in this biting indictment of just about anybody who opens their mouth in contemporary American discourse. Poultrygeist is card-carrying low-class art, and the crass context gives the filmmakers license to go after everyone. Kaufman expertly balances political satire and all-out parody (and musical numbers). Throughout unrelenting class-conscious, military-theme zombie chicken action, only the fast food industry comes out completely vilified, but everyone gets at least a little dirty.
