I think I was going to suggest this one…(if this is Blood Freak). David Fullam What I told Frank Henenlotter on FaceBook. As a Born Again Christian, I always shake my head and wonder “why?’ when it comes to many TV Shows and Movies marketed at my faith. But knowing I live in a world where a drug addicted turkey man prays to God and gets the girl makes me very happy! Gamera I’m with you David, when I first heard about this movie I went ‘Huh?’ Still I’m going to have to see this some day. As to being what I eat- at least I want to be a real turkey and not that awful tofu vegan fake turkey stuff! Happy Thanksgiving to one and all! Tork_110 Sam the Eagle is not a monster! David Fullam @Gamera, Yeah. Blood Freak is one of those that you literally cannot believe was actually made. What’s more that they actually took it seriously. It truly is a “there’s nothing like it” experience. Henry Happy Thanksgiving from the Philippines! On a more somber note: R.I.P. Ingrid Pitt http://specials.msn.com/A-List/Entertainment/Horror-queen-Ingrid-Pitt-dies.aspx?cp-documentid=26487594 Cullen This. Is the Greatest Movie. Of all time. Well, no, that’s a lie. It’s pretty terrible. But I kinda like it. The Rev. This movie is a hoot. A lot of fun; one of my favorite bad movies. I will say that, near the end of the movie, there is a real turkey that gets its head cut off and runs around for a bit. You should probably be ready for that. David Fullam Yeah, the brief bit of mondo footage was pretty unnecessary. I always turn my head. However the bit with the guy getting his leg chopped off and screaming for hours is hilarious. The Rev. I helped do that to turkeys and chickens in my youth. Of course, I didn’t film it for a crappy movie that in no way deserved to use a dying animal’s throes as a visual metaphor. I wish I’d known it was coming beforehand, because having it come up cold on us really sucked a lot of fun out of things. There was a LOT of fun to be sucked out, too, because this is truly a classic of bad cinema. And yes, the leg scene is hilarious. I like how he, and a couple of other people in the movie, mysteriously scream exactly the same way each time, over and over. David Fullam Rev, yeah the scream sounds are a hoot. Like they could only afford one or two sound effects (which is probably true!).The very visible blood tubes are always a funny sight. The leg effect might have come off better if it wasn’t so obvious that the man in question was an amputee. He’s filmed in ways that makes it a little too obvious during the scene where the Freak tracks him down. Always beware of dealers who push a form of super pot and tech boys who want you to eat contaminated meat!
