‘Turkles’: A Movie That Looks Amazing

I stumbled on this movie while browsing my local library’s new releases online. The title piqued my interest, so I Googled it and found the trailer above.

I need to see this movie.

Greg DeLiso and and I are always on the hunt for the next great unintentional comedies for us to fall in love with and quote incessantly to each other. We’ve delved far beyond famous ones like The Room, Troll 2, and Birdemic: Shock and Terror—our favorites include lesser-known gems such as My Streets, Little Marines 1 & 2, and Breakout: Batteries Not Included. Few have ever heard of them, but they offer as much, if not more laughs than better-known so-bad-it’s-good fare.

And a press conference about the movie, with the writer-director:

Let’s all watch Turkles and make this movie a thing. I’m sick of these great movies falling by the wayside. Seek it out and watch it with friends and spread the word, just like I plan to do.
