ThanksKilling is an American independent comedy horror film shot in 2007 and released in 2009,[1] about a cursed turkey killing off college students during the Thanksgiving break. The film was shot over a summer by Kevin Stewart and Jordan Downey on an original budget of $3,500.[1] It later was given a small investment to help complete the marketing and distribution of the film. Forbes says of ThanksKilling, "If you can enjoy laughing at a bad movie, definitely add this one to your list."[2] The Boston Globe called the film "cheerily awful."[3]

A sequel to ThanksKilling has been announced.[4] The sequel's $100,000 budget was raised over three months from pledges made through Kickstarter.[1]
