After you eat all you can eat, after you shop until you’re ready to drop, kick up your feet and check out some of these Thanksgiving treats available on Netflix/Hulu.
If you’re a horror movie fan then you already know some of the best holiday films were made back in the 80’s and 90’s some of which, might of escaped your attention. Well, just in time for the long holiday weekend we thought we’d create this list for you.
THANKSGIVING: We’ll start off with this little gem. This Eli Roth trailer created for another film(I believe a feature film is in the works) has everything a horror movie needs. Blood, gore,and nudity. Synopsis: A man whose childhood sweetheart, a turkey, was killed by his father. Now he stalks and decapitates horny teens, dressed as a pilgrim.
THANKSKILLING: This ultra low budget campy horror/comedy is what Thanksgiving horror movies are all about.Writer-director Jordan Downey’s holiday-themed horror spoof features an appearance by adult-film star Wanda Lust.
Synopsis:A homicidal turkey axes off college kids during Thanksgiving break. Definitely check it out.
THANKSKILLING 2 &3: That’s right horror fans! They made 3 of these… but only the original and 3rd one are available. Gobble! Gobble!
BLOOD FREAK: What can we say about Blood Freak? Unfortunately, it’s old, so the quality suffers a little but check out this synopsis. A biker comes upon a girl with a flat tire and offers her a ride home. He winds up at a drug party with the girl’s sister, then follows her to a turkey farm owned by her father, a mad scientist. The father turns the biker into a giant turkey monster who goes after drug dealers. Good enough?
POULTRYGEIST: Night Of The Chicken Dead
Here’s a campy horror/comedy sure to bring a laugh or two. No,no turkeys in this one, BUT it’s still poultry and worth listing.
Synopsis: Zombified chickens attempt to kill the fast-food workers that cook them in a restaurant built on an ancient burial ground.
BLOOD RAGE: Directed by John Grissmer,this is definitely a must see holiday treat. It’s a nice balance between trashy and gory. It was released as a Blu-ray in the early 2000’s so the film quality is good.
Synopsis: As kids, Todd is institutionalized for a murder whilst his twin goes free. 10 years later, on Thanksgiving, Todd escapes and a killing spree begins in his neighborhood.
