ThanksKilling 3 Gobbles its Way to DVDYes, the original ThanksKilling was far from something to write home about, but we cannot help but applaud the audacity it takes to make a second sequel that goes in search of the first sequel. And now? Now it’s on its way home.

From the Press Release
The “Raunchiest Puppet Movie Ever Made*”, ThanksKilling 3, debuts for the first time on DVD this October just in time for the holidays. The comedy/ horror spoof sees the return of original creators Jordan Downey and Kevin Stewart to the cult slasher series that follows Turkie, the fowl-mouthed Thanksgiving villain.

The original ThanksKilling was made for the minuscule budget of $3,500 while Downey and Stewart were still in college. After years of marketing it themselves, and with the help of distributor Gravitas Ventures, the film went on to gain a massive cult following for its purposeful “so bad it’s good” vibe. It quickly rose to over 170,000 ratings on Netflix and was featured in Maxim Magazine, Fangoria, and on TMZ. The movie’s Facebook page, with over 10,300 likes, features fan-made puppets and artwork, theme song remixes, and even pictures of ThanksKilling related fan tattoos.

Using the fan base to their advantage, Downey and Stewart were able to raise over $100,000 on Kickstarter to make their ambitious follow-up, ThanksKilling 3 – the first movie ever to skip its own sequel! Currently the highest funded horror film on Kickstarter, this ridiculous concept is something you have to see to believe.

ThanksKilling 3 follows the feathered villain Turkie as he carves through the likes of a rapping grandma, a mindless puppet, a wig-wearing inventor, a bisexual space worm, and their equally ridiculous friends on his quest to recover the last copy of ThanksKilling 2.

Filled with R-rated puppets and NSFW humor, ThanksKilling 3 stars Dan Usaj and Joe Hartzler, with an appearance by porn star Wanda Lust. Also featuring the voice talents of SickAnimation.com’s own Marc M and the team behind Slick Gigolo, Bridge Stuart and Mike Litzenberg. Highlighting the technical qualities of the film is the impressive electronic soundtrack from composer Zain Effendi which is currently available on iTunes.

    Flying Wolf! New Rampage Trailer Swoops In

    Published

    on

    Last month, we shared the crazy-ass trailer for “The Rock vs Three Huge Animals” movie Rampage. And we were all surprised by how serious the movie looks.

    Well if that trailer wasn’t enough to get you at least interested in watching titanic beasts curb-stomping entire cities, then maybe today’s new trailer will do the trick.

    Give it watch below and then let us know what you think!

    Rampage is directed by Brad Peyton and stars Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Naomie Harris, Malin Akerman, Jake Lacy, Joe Manganiello, and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

    The film hits theaters April 20.

    Synopsis:
    Primatologist Davis Okoye (Johnson), a man who keeps people at a distance, shares an unshakable bond with George, the extraordinarily intelligent silverback gorilla who has been in his care since birth. But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry transforms this gentle ape into a raging monster. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered alpha predators.

    As these newly created monsters tear across North America, destroying everything in their path, Okoye teams with a discredited genetic engineer to secure an antidote, fighting his way through an ever-changing battlefield, not only to halt a global catastrophe but to save the fearsome creature that was once his friend.
