ThanksKilling (2009)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)

A Wing and a Swear

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

Sometimes there are good-bad movies, and sometimes there are movies that are just fun to watch because they're so bad, but Jordan Downey's ThanksKilling (2009) is designed to look and feel like a bad movie. On purpose. But whether that makes it a good movie, and worth watching, is up to your own personal tastes, and perhaps your holiday alcohol consumption. (The movie's tagline is "Gobble, Gobble, motherf----r!") Basically, there's a killer turkey (an obvious puppet, never seen in its entirely) that speaks with lots of four-letter words and kills people if they come too close to sacred Indian grounds. Or something. Four teens on the way home for Thanksgiving break anger the creature and spend the rest of the movie being hacked up into bloody pieces. A porn star called Wanda Lust appears a topless pilgrim in a prologue. It runs only 70 minutes and might be good for a giggle or two. Downey followed it up with ThanksKilling 3 (yes, there is no "Part 2").
