I still recall the magical night that I discovered the original Thankskilling on Netflix while in the midst of a drinking bender with a few friends. The movie was grotesque, dumb, and downright deplorable. And I loved every minute of it. Of course, I haven’t gone back to watch it since that night, but I like think that it would still hold up. Provided I had an equal amount of alcohol.
Now the sequel, “Thankskilling 3″, is heading to store shelves this October and I couldn’t be more delighted. This time around it’s coming in a fancy little bundle with plenty of special features to tide you over till next Thanksgiving. Here’s what you’ll get when the DVD hits shelves on October 15th:
- 7 Behind-the-Scenes Featurettes
- 2 Audio commentaries with creators Jordan Downey and Kevin Stewart
- Interactive Drinking Game
- Flowis’ Sprinkle of Wrinkle music video
- PluckMaster 3000 informercial
- Trailers & Stills Galleries
- Hidden easter eggs
In ThanksKilling 3, the fowl-mouthed villain Turkie is back and hacking his way to find the last copy of ThanksKilling 2 which has landed in the hands of a group of disturbingly crude puppets.
The death toll rises as Turkie carves through the likes of Flowis the rapping grandma, Rhonda the bisexual space worm, Yomi the puppet in search of her mind, and their equally ridiculous friends who all travel through fantastical settings such as the FeatherWorld and Turkey Hell. With the guidance of Uncle Donny (Dan Usaj), the wig-wearing inventor of the PluckMaster 3000, Jefferson (Joe Hartzler), Head of Security at ThanksgivingLand, and a WiseTurkey, the gatekeeper to the FeatherWorld, our collection of raunchy characters hope to fend off the murderous rampage of Turkie, all while trying to help Yomi find her mind.
