Perhaps, you will think I'm very cruel for even bothering to rate this. As of right now, I've been very harsh in general to many of the films below this post. To be honest, I didn't have high expectations with the plot outline reading like this, "A homicidal turkey axes off college kids during Thanksgiving break.". My first thought was CHEESY FILM! HOORAY! Some people go into films like this with the wrong mindset. Some directors, for whatever reason, would try to approach a killer turkey as a serious film. I can only imagine them on film sets thinking, "No! I want this to be a serious scene!". It's a film about a killer turkey, come on? Sometimes that's the funniest part about a film is knowing that the director was so serious about it. Now some directors can approach a film like this with the mindset of, "Hey, this is a TERRIBLE idea. Let's make it cheesy and funny". THAT'S when a cheesy movie is fun and enjoyable.
Thankskilling is the second of those two options. Jordan Downey is the perfect example of that kind of director as well. Not to say he can't do serious films but this is a review on "Thankskilling". It's a fun film indeed. Every time the turkey was on my LG 1080i television, I was on the floor laughing. No, I am not lying either. PLEASE, do not be turned off by the first F rating I have gave. The films intention was probably to strive to be an F rated film, while hoping to be an A+ in enjoyment.
Great Film: F
Enjoyable Film: A+
