Meet Cleaver Theatre Thanksgiving Episode

Image
Butch R. Cleaver presents Meet Cleaver Theatre's Thanksgiving episode.
This is Butch's description of episode 129 of Meet Cleaver Theatre Sub Atomic:

"Greetings Krypt Kats! Butch R. Cleaver here with another obscure treat for your holiday weekend. Since it's Turkey day we decided to get in the spirit with a turkey related movie. We failed. The closest we could find is a turgid tale of chickens, hootin', hollerin' and the kind of relationship issues that are only found in some of the finer trailer parks of our great nation. It's the 1974 drive-in obscuro-classic: "Cockfighter"! And place your bets on what our retro-mercial selections are.... yeah, you guessed it. It's everyone's favorite chicken related chain restaurant from two cultural viewpoints...you decide which one is weirder."

Thanksgiving Turkey Turd Movie o-Rama!

For Turkey Day I bring you total turkey turd of a movie chock full of drugged fueled depravity and a crappy looking blood thirsty drug crazed turkey headed man-thing-monster.
Such a description could only mean "Blood Freak"! See this rare gem (ahem) a, cartoon, '60's anti-drug propaganda films, and loads of hilarious audio inserts."
