ThanksKilling is a 2008 horror-comedy movie directed by Jordan Downey. The movie begins with a flashback to the 17th century, where a cavewoman is cursing a turkey for being so stupid. We fast forward to present-day, where five college friends are returning home for Thanksgiving break. Their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, leaving them stranded in the woods. After wandering around, they come across a possessed turkey with a thirst for blood. The turkey is actually the same one cursed by the cavewoman, and it has come back to seek revenge on humans.

The movie opens with a scene straight out of a horror movie. A beautiful blonde woman is shown taking a shower when an unknown attacker bursts in and kills her. The scene then fades to a group of college students driving home for Thanksgiving. The group is made up of the jock, the bookworm, the slut, the good girl, and the goofy guy. On their way home, their car breaks down in the middle of the woods. They decide to venture out and find help.

The group soon discovers that they are being stalked and hunted by a demonic turkey, who is out to get revenge on humans for the way they have treated turkeys over the years. As the turkey stalks and kills the students one by one, the remaining students struggle to survive and come up with a plan to defeat the turkey.

The movie has all the elements of a cheesy horror movie, with over-the-top acting, bad dialogue, and cheap special effects. The turkey's voice is dubbed over with a high-pitched, cartoonish voice, which gives the movie a comedic element. The gore is over the top and cartoonish, making it more funny than scary.

The movie also has a number of humorous one-liners and memorable scenes. One of the most memorable scenes is a topless woman being killed by the turkey, who quips "Nice tits, bitch" before killing her. Another memorable scene is when the turkey disguises itself as a woman and seduces the goofy guy before killing him.

ThanksKilling is not a movie that takes itself seriously, and it is clear that the filmmakers did not intend for it to be a serious horror movie. Instead, it is a fun and silly movie that is perfect for a night in with friends. The movie's ridiculousness is part of its charm, and it is sure to make viewers laugh out loud.

Despite its low budget and lack of star power, ThanksKilling is a cult classic that has gained a following over the years. The movie has spawned two sequels, ThanksKilling 3 and ThanksKilling: The Musical. The success of the movie has also led the filmmakers to launch a Kickstarter campaign to fund a ThanksKilling animated series.

In conclusion, ThanksKilling is a low-budget horror-comedy movie that takes a humorous approach to the horror genre. With its campy acting, cheesy special effects, and over-the-top gore, the movie is sure to entertain viewers who are looking for a silly and fun horror movie. While it may not be for everyone, it is a cult classic that has gained a following over the years and is worth a watch for those who enjoy cheesy horror movies.

ThanksKilling is a 2009 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 7 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.2.
