Oh. I just…oh.

True story. Netflix just suggested this movie to me as a “film you’ll love based on your viewing habits”:

I don’t know whether to be proud or insulted.

  1. Well, they clearly understand that you like Oscar-winning productions.

    (That looks like it was made with a Flip with random people from my hometown in Oklahoma.)

  2. That’s either the netflix equivilent to the ugly tie you give your dad on Fathers day, or they really do get you.

  3. Heh, it recommended that one to me too. It also said I would like “The Pink Panther” (not the real one but the Steve Martin abortion) because I enjoyed Shawn of the Dead. I think there’s a glitch in the suggestometer at Netflix.

  4. When I recently searched for mini greenhouses on Amazon, ‘they’ were certain I would also like the latest Susan Boyle album. ‘People who’ve bought this have also bought Susan Boyle’s latest release.’ REALLY? Really? How many people, exactly? I say seven, MAX.

  5. Watch it! my husband watches it every year it’s worth it for the turkey rape scene alone . No. Not joking.

  6. I don’t understand how my families home movies got on YouTube. My kids PROMISED me that their little project was a SECRET. I think you should be honored. The dialogue was compelling. It’s a fairly short movie. I’d type more but this damn iPad autocorrect is killing me!

  7. The trailer is totally taking for fucking ever to load in because I live in the woods and my tin cups attached to the power lines down the road by a skein of metallic silver purple yarn is fucked up. In fact, my bad aweful neighbor probably put knots in it. Kind of like crochet, but crochet with bad feelings knitted in.

  8. Ha! My roommate and I just watched that last night. We weren’t sure if it was supposed to be a horror flick or soft core porn. Looking back, still not sure.

  9. I’d guess you could say proud, if your idea of cinematic perfection is an awkward combination of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Blair Witch Project, Revenge of the Nerds and The Muppets. Throw in a knockoff Jersey Shore idiot, an unseen but clearly there gratuitous sex scene and a sad attempt at a bird known for only its deliciousness and inability to fly trying to imitate Samuel L. Jackson at the pinnacle of his career and that right there is what you’d call a gold mine.

  10. Also true story in reference to Perckle comment #27 I kissed the sound guy in Blair Witch Project when we were in a play together. So I totally made him famous with my kiss.

    Um…I have had just the right amount of wine to make this awkward.

  11. Ummmm…. Yeah I’ve got nothing but I will be running around with my new copied slogan of Gobble Gobble Motherfucker!!! Too funny can’t even explain.

  12. How come Netflix doesn’t make such awesome recommendations for us????

    Now you know I have to check and see if it’s available in the “watch instantly” list.

  13. As a result of my purchasing Marina & The Diamonds explosion of bipolar self-loathing The Family Jewels the iTunes “Genius” is recommending me something called “Kiss That Grrrl” by Kate Nash. Which means either Kate Nash is a master of vicious irony or recommendation engines don’t know shit.

  14. Yeah apparently the whole hairspray shooting fire thing doesn’t work anymore. That’s ten minutes of my life I will never get back. Fuck.

  15. Netflix suggested I would like “Out for Justice” with Steven Segal because I had just received “To Kill a Mockingbird.” Sometimes, Netflix really scares me.

  16. No joke, my brothers just insisted we watch this on Netflix last week. They were screaming with laughter the entire time. Our six-year-old sister is now traumatized. I continue to find the whole situation hilarious.

    P.S. Thankskilling is also currently being featured on Hulu on the front page. Just spreading the joy around.

  17. I’m not even gonna click on that vid or YouTube will be recommending (“Because you watched, with rapt attention, Thankskilling”) every slasher upload they have. Besides, “Gobble gobble motherfucker” can’t compete with “I’ve got a mantis in my pantis!” Um, MST3K for the uninitiated.

  18. I’ll never be able to sit down to a turkey dinner without wanting to say “gobble gobble motherfucker.”

  19. And I don’t know whether to be mortified or…. mortified that I knew exactly that this was Thankskilling. yup, watched it last year.

  20. Hahaha yeah they recommended that one for me, so I watched the trailer and was like “seriouslY?” and then watched another trailer where the turkey’s like “Gobble gobble motherfucker” or something and then I was on the fence about the whole thing. It’s not like I wouldn’t watch that movie, it’s just that I can not watch it alone because it’s too ridiculous to not make fun of verbally, you know?

  21. Gah. Why did you do this to me?! I have shit to do in the morning. But you can’t expect me to go to bed now without watching this movie in it’s entirety. Well, if it is half as terriblarious as The Room, it will be worth it. And with a line like: “There’s no such thing as an evil turkey.” I have high hopes.

  22. A group of friends and I watched that movie on a whim. It’s so bad it’s awesome.

    Best line of the movie: right before the killer turkey kills a kid from the inside out, he sticks his head out of the kid’s stomach and utters, “Gobble gobble, motherfucker.”

  23. My jaw dropped. IQ points vanished. The…the turkey…it said, “Gobble gobble, motherfucker.”…

  24. My favorite part is, “This little baby got torn open by a beak. And not just any beak, a turkey beak.” I might have to get this movie just because that line has hooked me so completely.

  25. I saw this trailer a few weeks ago, and I’ve been DYING to watch it (See what I did there?). If you like this, you might also be interested in a few horror films called Black Sheep and the Human Centipede. One of which I’ve seen, and one of which made me want to vomit.

  26. Jenn, you’re far more disturbed than I realized. Personally, I’m relieved. That means I can totally be myself and you won’t find it strange that we gave out copies of this (from Amazon) with our pumpkin pies this year to every member of my family. I’ve always thought that the thing missing from eating pumpkin pie with whipped cream….was laughing hard enough to spew it out your nose. It just makes the pie experience so much richer.

  27. Seeing as I’m at work and they don’t let us watch videos on the internets (whatever) then I’m going to guess and say you should be…proud? Maybe? This is why I will never be “comment of the day”.

  28. There seems to be some confusion here. This is not a horror film. This is not a send-up of a horror film. This is a documentary. I know. I used to raise turkeys. I have been a victim of their feathery nefariousness. Turkeys are stupid and mean and tasty. Three strikes and you’re out!

  29. “There’s no such thing as an evil turkey… There’s no such thing as an evil turkey… There’s NO. SUCH. THING. as an evil turkey…”

    *gobble gobble gobble*

    Happy Thanksgiving! (Oh, and be careful when opening the door.)


  30. Wow, I had no idea. And now, I’m traumatized. I don’t know if I’ll be able to make it through dinner tonight without a “Gobble gobble motherfucker” thrown in, and for that, I thank you.

  31. Wow. That was amazing. I wonder if it’s on par with the movie “Zombie Strippers”. That was quite an experience to watch.

  32. I actually just HAD to look it up in IMDB to see if this was an actual movie….it says it was shot in 11 days. *snort*

  33. Be insulted. Also, if you’re like me, be mad that Netflix is hugely raising their prices at a time when so many people are undergoing economic hardship.


  34. What was the turkey doing when he said, ‘you just got stuffed’, and to whom? Because I am assuming you watched it, of course. Also, if this turkey was raised from the dead in the 1500’s, shouldn’t its remaining flesh look a lot more decayed? I’m kind of disappointed in the special effects…

  35. Yeah we watched Thanks-killing, kind of hoping for a Bruce Campbell-esque “It’s so horrible it’s epic” kind of deal. The opening scene is a topless pilgrim (played by a porn star) running through the forest. There is attempted raping of turkey, followed by the turkey car jacking his would be rapist by shooting him with a shotgun while making him call his daughter, actual rape BY turkey (With tiny gravy flavored condoms), culminating in him coming back to life after falling into a garbage dump full of nuclear waste, and only being destroyed by being burned at the stake like a witch and having the heroine devour his drumstick. Or is he….?

    Netflix is getting really bad at the whole suggestion thing. I love the Movie “Kinky Boots” and it insisted I watch “Steel Toe”.

  36. So Jenny, what did you and Victor think of the movie? (Please don’t bore us with your denial, just fill us in)

  37. I totally watched this with some of my friends for Halloween this year. Probably the worst (and best) movie I’ve ever seen. I’m glad you’re sharing it with the masses.

  38. OMG. Thankskilling??? This movie has been recommended to us (for inexplicable reasons) on our Netflix for over a year now. We keep joking that we’ll watch it, but we never did. Love the cover of the movie though, with the crazed turkey. Priceless.

    We also joked about watching Zombie Strippers after Thanksgiving dinner, but went with A Miracle on 31st Street instead.

  39. I’d be scared, not proud or insulted. little bit creep. now as I sign out I will see if wordpress.com fixed my last blog…..as Turkey time and not one of emails.

  40. Odd. I just got a blog update from a film blog that also suggested this film. I read the title and said to myself “that is the stupidest damn thing I have ever heard of.” Then I watched the trailer. “Gobble, gobble, motherfucker” is brilliant. A talking evil muppet turkey? Not so much. I am trying to figure out why an indian that was wronged by a pilgrim (hello history) somehow created an evil turkey that does not die, can now speak English and who purportedly only has “one thing to say” but says a whole bunch.

    I need to go back and read my history books again.

  41. You know whats awesome? Other than Gobble Gobble Motherfucker? Having nothing but a dumb ass picture posted on your own website on Thanksgiving and having comment luv let you know how unprepared you were.

  42. this movie is INSANE. and the alternate title should be shanksgiving. any movie where the first scene is a naked boob should have an alternate title. that’s like, a law or something.

  43. Proud. That’s been on my list of movies to watch since my housemates and I went through a “really bad horror movie” phase. We’ve already watched “Hellbent”, “Run Bitch Run”, “The Mist”, “Day of the Triffids”, “Crossroads” and “Fugitives Run”.

    I feel like most suggestion mechanisms are designed to recommend to you the stuff that would have the most dust in a video store. Though really, the turkey’s attitude alone would make it worth watching.

  44. it suggested that to me too. I watched it with a bunch of friends. I can’t even say what it’s like but I feel like everyone should see it.

  45. The movie itself wouldn’t be worth watching, but the trailer was a blast. That kind of a joke-premise doesn’t have the legs to hold up an entire film, but 2 minutes felt right. They showed the whole damn movie in that two minutes anyway; you saw how all of them died and how the last chick standing roasted that bird!

    But Vapid Blonde has a point; laziest. post. ever.

    I know it was a holiday,
    but it kinda feels like a diss,
    when all you have to say,
    is hey ‘yall, look at this

  46. I watched this movie on Halloween. Wow. Amazing. All I can say is that it was much more than I imagined.

  47. Pathetically, I have no other way of getting in touch unless I email you at the advertising address, but really, what would I do with your appendix in a jar? Not that it isn’t lovely.

    I’m handing out awards tomorrow (Nov. 2) on my blog and your one of the bloggers I’m awarding. I know, I know. It’s ridiculous because you’re a blogging professional, but I was charged with the task of picking my favorite funny bloggers and I’d be a damn liar if I didn’t include you. So, you know, ignore my award because you don’t need it. Just consider it a compliment.

  48. I watched this movie on Halloween when we had watched everything else worth watching.
    It was probably the most ridiculous movie I’ve ever seen.

    “You just got stuffed”
    “I’m going to kill the cock blocking turkey!”

    Some gems of quotes from the movie.

    I say, be VERY proud.

  49. I bet you ordered it straight away.

    Tell me you are watching it right now, and writing a review.

    Because that would be awesome.

  50. Watched the first scene.

    okay that’s a lie, watched the first second. but my friends and I decided to get totally plastered and then watch it.

  51. Gobble Gobble Mother Fucker…..that shit is scary. But I would totally be proud if that came up on MY recommendations. Dude.

  52. Netflix recommended Black Sheep; it’s a story about mutant zombie sheep who go mad in New Zealand, and the sheep-a-phobe who must, with his soon-to-be lady-love named “Experience,” twart the plans of his evil brother who started the experiments, and stop the zombie (did I mention they were zombies?) sheep from taking over the world. Netflix was right: I totally loved that shit.

  53. That whole bloodbath could’ve been avoided if they’d just followed a few simple tips for surviving a horror movie.

    1. Don’t be the obnoxious one (or at least not the most obnoxious one)
    2. Don’t be the know-it-all with all the snarky comments
    3. Don’t be curious and go check where that sound is coming from (send Mr Snarky)

  54. I’m honestly surprised it wasnt rec’d to us based on my husbands viewing habits. Netflix is definitely presumptive 😉

  55. filmed in Ohio..yeah we rock like that! haha
    It is so bad but entertainingly so. The wifey and I watched it on Turkey day. I watched it earlier and reviewed it for b movie brigade.
    I’d have to say you should probably be proud. I mean the turkey uses an “extra small…gravy flavored condom”
    hilarious and hilariously bad. Naked Pilgrim is the literal name of the character played by porn star Wanda Lust. lol

  56. This reminded me of a movie my uncle was in called ZOMBEAK! No kidding!!! He plays the big guy in a pink tank top and devil mask.

  57. Netflix suggested i watch a movie called ‘Santa’s slay’ first ten minutes were the goriest and most spectacularly disturbing Christmas movie moment of my life.

  58. Have you looked at the IMDB page for this movie? One of the girl’s character names is “Kristen ‘The Good Girl’.” If you look at her profile, she only has one other movie credit where she played “Two-Sexed Freak – Woman”. Oh Lindsey Anderson, you have an enviable career!

    Also, I totally saw that movie on my Netflix and laugh every time I see the cover.

  59. Wow. I think the answer definitely depends on whether or not you added it to your queue!

  60. So I am late to the party with this comment but I am ashamed to say I have seen this. One of the most ridiculous things ever. A group of us watched it as a joke.
    Best parts:

    1)The turkey says “You just got stuffed, bitch,” after banging a girl who did not know it was a turkey banging her. Really? Talk about a hot dog being thrown down a hall way situation.

    2) In the first two minutes of the film, the turkey rips the shirt off a pilgrim (porn star) and says “Nice tits, bitch.”

    3) The turkey kills some chicks dad, cuts off his face and wears it as a mask and the girl can’t tell the difference!

    4) It still had a more original story than Avatar.

  61. I would just like to point out that, apparently, Netflix can tell the future. Little did you know that six months from this post you would buy a giant chicken and make cards that said, “Knock, knock motherfucker” (vs the turkey’s “Gobble, gobble motherfucker”). But Netflix did. And it was preparing you for the future!
