10 Movie Musicals That Don't Suck

7. Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead (2006)

Director: Lloyd Kaufman
Writer: Gabriel Friedman, Daniel Bova, Lloyd Kaufman
Composer: Duggie Banas
Stars: Jason Yachanin, Kate Graham, Robin Watkins, Allyson Sereboff

Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead, from Troma Entertainment, the same company that gave us B-movie gems The Toxic Avenger and Surf Nazis Must Die, is as ridiculous as it sounds, and we love every gory minute of it. We don't only love the ludicrous bloodshed, though. We also love that it's a musical with a very sweet score and some surprisingly goofy, but heartfelt lyrics like: "My meat in your buns makes such special sauce." You can't lose with lines like that!

Unlike most musicals, which are all about the songs, this movie adds humor, horror, and a message about fast food consumption to the mix like only Troma can, so expect lots of breasts (of the female and chicken variety), lots of blood, and lots of jokes in poor taste. We wouldn't have it any other way.
