One of the things that mark the greatness of holidays are the traditions. For every major holiday in the US we either excitedly or dreadfully....gather around our families and go through the same motions we do every year. Every family has some sort of special tradition for nearly every holiday and it's what makes them so great/terrible.
One of the things that made Thanksgiving special for my family (from 2008-beyond) would be when my brother and I would have an inebriated discussion about one of the greatest turkey day-themed movies of all time...ThanksKilling. This epic low-budget horror/comedy focuses on the most horrifying slasher baddie of all time, a demonic turkey. This year for Thanksgiving, I can serve up a new offering for our discussion of campy horror: Turkey Day!
Turkey Day One-Shot (Source Point Press)
Here's the pitch of the book from Source Point Press' Press Release:
"The annual Thanksgiving pageant in Pilgrim Point, IL is a town highlight telling the absolutely 100% true story of how benevolent European settlers brought peace, civilization, and home cooked meals to the natives. This year the pageant takes an unexpected intermission when a mob of turkeys recently infected by alien parasites kicks in the doors. Much like the early settlers, these invaders are just here to spread love, exude joy, and share recipes, right? They certainly don’t want to wipe humankind off the face of the earth, right? RIGHT? Wink. Wink. Nudge. Nudge."
- Awkward Small Town Pageants (I'm looking at you Best Christmas Pageant Ever)
- Indignant History Teachers mad at Historical Inaccuracies (I over-identified with this character!)
- Over-over acting while conversing with actors who are over-acting!
- Aliens proving an odd point about colonialism
- Aliens with dope mind-control abilities
- Blood and gore......and a lot of it
- Excellent tongue-and-cheek humor
- A Terrifying final page I want framed and hanging on my wall!
If you need a fantasy in your life to spice up your thanksgiving holiday get-together, then pre-order and pick up Turkey Day because it may give you that extra 25th spice to make your thanksgiving dinner quite nice!
