I don’t understand why every other horror site on the web isn’t reporting on this, but as proud New Yorker’s, we’re always humbled and honored to talk about the latest from Uncle Lloyd! (Lloyd Kaufman, that is!) And the president of TROMA Entertainment revealed via his My Space blog that POULTRYGEIST: NIGHT OF THE CHICKEN DEAD will be available on DVD October 28th, 2008! If you recall, we spoke extensively with Lloyd Kaufman in our FRIGHT exclusive interview with him several months back. Click the frame below to read it, and also to check out the 2nd episode of AMERICA’S BAD KIDS from which the interview was culled.
We leave you with Lloyd’s message about the DVD announcement:
"GREETINGS FROM TROMAVILLE!!
Hey all you chicken heads! It looks like, after 83 years, Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead will finally be hatching on DVD on OCTOBER 28th!!
Okay, it’s only been a couple years, but it feels like its been a long time coming, baby (which is, funnily enough, what my wife said to me last night.)
For oh so many years, I’ve been on my knees begging you to storm your local theatre and get them to play Poultrygeist.
"But Uncle Lloydie," you say, "I live in the Siberian tundra and I don’t have a local independent theater."
Well, young comrade, this is your time to shine. Start storming your local VIDEO STORE and tell THEM that you want Poultrygeist.
If we start now, it can be on your local Siberian shelf by October.
Spread the bird (and the love)
