  This is one turkey you will not be giving thanks for!

ThanksKilling (also known as Death Turkey) is a comedy-slasher film released in 2009.

In 1621, after being slighted by pilgrim Chuck Langston, skilled shaman Feathercloud used powerful necromancy to resurrect a turkey as a monster, which proceeded to massacre the pilgrims on the first Thanksgiving Day, before entering a state of hibernation.

Five-hundred and five years later, college student Kristen Roud and her friends - Johnny, Ali, Darren and Billy (who is descended from Langston) - are heading to their respective homes for Thanksgiving break, just as the evil turkey wakes up, killing a dog who found him in the process. Pursued by the dog's revenge obsessed owner, Oscar, the turkey embarks on a killing spree, intent on wiping out Kristen, her friends, and everyone else he comes across.

This film provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Aerosol Flamethrower: Kristen uses one to set the turkey on fire.
  • All Women Are Prudes: Ali is a self-proclaimed one, but she is an idiot, and the others are quick to point out she is, in fact, a slut.
  • Amicably Divorced: Sheriff Roud seems pretty unfazed by his wife's request for a divorce:

 Sheriff Roud: "Goddamn Sheryl! That coffee tastes like shit! What you do, take a dump in it?"

Sheryl: "As a matter of fact, I sure did. I want a fuckin' divorce!"

Sheriff Roud: "... Awright then."

  The Turkey: "Nice tits, bitch!"

 Johnny: "But, we gave your people land, and we let you have casinos. Doesn't that make up for what out ancestors did?"

The Turkey: "It almost did... but it didn't."

  "You just got stuffed!"

  "Do I smell sequel!?"

 Darren: "So guys, I was thinking, y'know, since it's Thanksgiving and all, that we should go around and say what we're thankful for."

Billy: "I'm thankful that your mom has the juiciest poon in town."
