Another Year, Another Turkey Head.

Gobble Gobble, starry night
Gobble Gobble, endless blight
Should you see the Turkey in the stars
She'll drag your corpse from here to Mars.

To a place that has no air, Turkey Head will find you there.
In the Void, or on the Moon, Turkey Head will find you soon.
The curse, like your stomach, grows.
With Turkey, pie, and potatoes.

With every bite, you dim the light, and make room for Turkey Head to kill tonight.

Break out the stuffing, Fetch the ham, shatter the seals that bind the damned.
There isn't a chance, to get out alive, The Turkey Lurks so you try to survive.

On a tin can, in the middle of space, Your screams unheard, when she cuts off your face.
Died again, but now she's learned.
Turkey Head will always return.

Gobble Gobble, starry night
Gobble Gobble, endless blight
Should you see the Turkey in the stars
She'll drag your corpse from here to Mars.

Another sequel, this time the Part VI sequel to Turkey Head Part V: Hellbound Giblet. Turkey Head Part V: Hellbound Giblet by DarkmasterN

If you thought that movie's synopsis was wild, wait till you hear this one...

Ok, so the movie starts us off with a montage of scenes from the series, showing Turkey Head, the Bride of Turkey Head, Their horrible spawn, Going Coastal, and finally the death of Turkey Head and her return as an undead entity, possessing their child.

It ends reminding us that the Turkey Beast had possessed the little girl at the end of the previous movie and with her family dead she went to live with a new family who works for Nasa. This is set up in the movie by showing the father at work with the mother, with the father working in training as an astronaut and the is a house wife, in an interview where they are telling the viewers that they are going to be the first family in space as they will be taking part in a program that will send one family to space to join up with a new space station that is testing what it's like for humans to all live together in an anti-gravity weightless environment. The reporter mentions how they're the perfect family, before the camera cuts to them at home, with the daughter begging for food. She's quite chubby and her dad is yelling at her for eating so much and being so fat, and getting in an argument with the mother who thinks he's too harsh on her, while she's too lenient toward the little girl's habits and allowed her to get chubby which was why she's been acting out, making the husband say that they better not embarrass him.

There's a bit of story, establishing that the little girl is still in there, she's just driven by the endless hunger of the turkey beast, and it causes her to act out, doing things such as eating dead animals she finds on the street or biting other children when they make fun of her, which they do often because of how strange she is. She talks to Turkey Head in the mirror who just stands and listens while she talks. They also establish that the father seems to be very controlling, as he is a well known astronaut and he thinks his reputation is everything. The Mother is a trophy house wife who seems to be very sad and spends her time trying to please their adopted daughter. They have a big party before the launch of their ship and at the party the mother speaks to some of her friends and they tell her that she's brave for adopting a kid who got attacked by a psycho since kids that get traumatized at a young age like that are often likely to be unstable themselves, and they ask about the Turkey Head and go over various urban legends about it. Meanwhile the father is speaking to several work friends and military guys who tell him to watch out for Space Madness, and tell him that you're supposed to tape a person to the wall when they have space madness. They laugh about it and say he'll have to watch out for his crazy kid. The kid finds a dead raccoon and eats some of it, and when another kid at the party makes fun of her for it she bites his ear off and they have to do a psychological test as to weather or not the family can go now. The father gets the doctor to fudge the results so they can leave and the family all get together to take off.

They announce the big thanksgiving dinner they'll celebrate with on the space station and show off all of thanksgiving foods they were bringing on board. The ship counts down and has liftoff into space. The Daughter sneaks to the back where the storage is and she opens up one of the crates and starts eating some of the snacks. She's drawn to the turkey that's being coked in a strange pressure cooker like device. She opens it and takes some turkey. As she chews she keeps picturing a creature peering back at her in the dark and she bites her cheek, getting blood on the turkey leg. Her father finds her and scolds her while dragging her away and tossing the drumstick back into the container. On the ship, the mom has a nightmare about her daughter stuffed to the gills asking for more food, and when she takes another bite a massive turkey monster explodes from her stomach, and she wakes up with a start as they arrive at the space station. The dad meets an attractive commander lady who seems to flirt with him. The next few minutes establish the space station, and show that it has ways of growing crops, and shows them learning to move in a weightless environment. Some people moving all the food set it out and looking into the turkey, it seems to be boiling and moving slightly. The mom keeps thinking of what was said about turkey head and her daughter and finds her kid drawing turkey head in a book and gets upset. She tells the father but he says to just keep her in check and make sure she didn't fuck anything up for them.

The father has a dream this time about Turkey Head, and he sees various news places reporting on the return of Turkey Head and him being the brave hero that kills it, And he pictures Turkey Head emerging from the stomach of the woman whom flirted with him earlier. He wakes up and ends up running into her in the back where the food is being held and ends up having sex with her in the back area. He feeds her food as they do it and she eats some of the turkey, despite it tasting funny, and it makes her really hungry. The wife seems to have a conversation with her reflection about how she needs to take care of her baby no matter what and that they can't trust the father because he's abusive, and she already has evidence of him cheating on her. Whenever she walks away, her reflection stays and smiles.

The Daughter befriends a child on the ship, the only other one there, and they understand she must be going through a lot and being around them actually seems to make her a little less monstrous, however the child's parent doesn't like her and tells her to stay away from the boy because she's a freak. The next day the parent is found dead, stabbed several times, a scene which we saw first person, and they say they'll have to keep it in holding until trash pickup comes. During this time the father keeps having his affair with the woman who has already gotten fat, and he keeps her there and stuffs her silly. She says she feels like something's wrong, and he keeps pushing her, dreaming of the glory. Another adult who seems to be mistrusting the new family is found dead as well and things are more tense as they have no idea who did it still. The Father confronts the little girl, wondering if it has something to do with her and learns that the mother was doing it, and that she knows about the affair. She agrees to not tell about the affair if he helps her dispose of the bodies and of another one, who was a teacher that was mean to their daughter. They feed all of them to the woman tied up in the garbage room, who is in a very bad state.

During this time, the little girl is mostly playing with the child, and with an engineer who now takes care of the child since the parent's death. They start to realize something is up and start investigating and find out who did it. Meanwhile the father goes to have sex with the woman again and this time when he does her belly explodes and a naked woman emerges. He's ready to kill her and prove he's a hero, but Turkey Head, reborn from her guts, kills him easily and dons her turkey mask. The engineer tries to tell them that he's behind everything and they just find both of their dead bodies, and the mom tries to turn it on him. From this point on, it's a sort of thriller like the Thing, where no one knows who the monster is, however this time the watcher knows it to be the mother. She begins questioning if what she's doing is ok as people on the ship get killed one by one as Turkey head attacks, with the Engineer trying to avoid him and keeping him from the little girl. They go to the mom for help and she realizes that her reflection is the ghost of the Bride of Turkey Head leading her to kill everyone. She ends up getting completely taken over by the bride and helps Turkey Head to take the girl, and the Engineer fights them to get her back, and ends up snapping the mother out of it who grabs Turkey Head and opens the air lock.

The Engineer, thinking the remaining few are safe, calls for help and they send a ship. They get on the ship and head home and when they do it says there is a hull breech. Turkey Head appears and attacks them, and the engineer has to fight her alone. Turkey Head and him get locked in the back area, which breaks apart upon re-entry and tells the little girl and her friend he loves them.

It ends with her seemingly cured of the turkey possession and going to live with the boy's mother who wasn't on the station, and she goes with them.

Meanwhile they don't find the engineer or Turkey head in the wreckage and say that nothing could have survived the fall. The camera pans to the woods though where a part of the ship landed. The Engineer emerges and crawls away but is killed by a girl dressed as a pilgrim woman. She holds out a hand to Turkey head and reveals that there are others with her, dressed as pilgrims, and they introduce themselves as the Followers of the Head, and welcome Turkey Head to her new home in some woodland Turkey Head cult.....

These movies just keep getting outlandish, and they seem to have picked up a stride though with lore on how they all come back, making some parts more coherent while other parts are... all over the place... I'm not sure if they'll make another sequel despite the sequel bait teased at the end, but I do hear they're making a sequel to the Remake that people are looking forward to!

Can't forget Kaiko and Laila this Halloween~ I tried to do it in the style of a weird old Halloween card this time because I wanted something simple and cute. Keiko's a pumpkin head right now, but next month she'll trade it in for a Turkey >:3

I'll use this time to also update you guys on the state of Slightly Above Average! Saa's next chapters are currently.... IN STORYBOARD. I have a few chapters storyboarded up and I'm working on more. I want to completely finish 100 pages before I start posting again so I have a back log to post, and there will be 2 pages a week again like in the old days. I've got over 30 pages storyboarded so far, so things are coming along. It's been a long time but I want to assure you all that it's not being forgotten, it's just taking time to get running again!

Hopefully we'll be seeing Keiko and Laila's adventures again soon, and we can meet new characters along the way, but I wanted you guys to know that it's officially out of "Writing mode" and being storyboarded so we're way closer to having a weekly series again~

Bigger Res version is available on Deviantart (Warning: Weird NSFW fetish stuff is also there XD)

Can you believe it's been 10 years since I started this project? Even moreso it's been 2 years since there's been a new page due to trial and tribulation. However I am happy to present this with some definitive proof of things to come.

Though I've dealt with many things due to this pandemic and it's ability to sap any creativity and motivation from me, as well as other life issues that have come up through the last two years. But I want you all to know that I have been working hard to make sure that I can continue working on Slightly Above Average so I can continue the story of Keiko and her friends, and I think I can say for sure that we will start seeing pages by this time next year if not earlier.

For 10 years of madness there will be 10 more to come. I hope you have fun trying to figure out what's going on in this pic comprised of horrors yet to come and horrors past.

There were a few others I wanted to fit in but I couldn't get a good composition to fit them in too unfortunately. I'll have to do something fun with Keiko's other classmates next time.

I hope you enjoy this, and I hope you stick around for many more years of madness.

SAA will return, I promise.

It's time for another horror movie parody!
She killed one, and She killed Two
Turkey Turkey Gobble Goo

She killed three, and She killed Four
Gobble Gooble Kill some more

Hiding from the rotten smell
The head is dead and you can tell
Rotting souls and carcass shells
Turkey Head drags you to hell

She has faced Eternal Rest
Stuffing, Gravy, Turkey Breast
Rotten eggs laid in a Nest
Turkey Turkey Murder Fest

Though she burns in endless flame
Her dark lover calls her name
Blood is spilled, people maimed
Turkey Lurkey Has no Shame

Hiding from the rotten smell
The head is dead and you can tell
Rotting souls and carcass shells
Turkey Head drags you to hell

Pentagram and devil's debt
Families crying all upset
Bloody clawing from the depths
Turkey Head Eternal Breath

Rising from the hellish fire
Cooking on her endless pyre
Freshly cooked on Satan's skillet
Rises up the Hellbound Giblet

Turkey Tee, And Turkey Too
Eyes of glowing eerie blue
Face is carved, and yours is too
Turkey head will come for you

Hiding from the rotten smell
The head is dead and you can tell
Rotting souls and carcass shells
Turkey Head drags you to hell

After the Reboot of Turkey Head: Rebasted, the original series got another sequel with Turkey Head part V: Hellbound Giblet. The 5th installment in the Turkey Head original series, this one continues with the Thanksgiving themed violence.

Beginning a few years after the last one, we first see a small montage of the things Turkey Head had done, showing highlights of the first four movies, before it cuts to a young girl drawing a hand turkey. Another kid takes her paper and makes fun of it and she yells at him to stop and her friend, another little girl, pushes the boy and gets the paper back as her teacher berates all of them for fighting. It then shows them outside talking about how the girl gets bullied all the time for drawing turkeys in class. The little girl's friend asks why she's obsessed with Turkeys and she says that she's had dreams of Turkey head since she was little. The little girl's mother shows up to pick her up from school and it's the Bride of Turkey Head disguised as an average milf. She takes the little girl home and the friend gets picked up by her older sister.

The Older sister asks what the girl did that day and the friend tells her that the little girl always sees Turkey Head in her dreams, and so the Older sister explains who Turkey head is, scaring the little girl with the story. She then says that Turkey Head last killed everyone on a cruise ship and then when Turkey head was escaping she got bombed to hell by the explosives that the military had when they showed up and they found her pieces floating around so they knew she was dead. They get home and the Older sister sees that the girl has a bunch of pictures of Turkey Head that were drawn before, and one of the pictures shows a woman swimming away and turkey head being dead in the water. This intrigues the Older Sister who asks why she drew that and her younger sister says it was from one of her friends turkey head dreams.

The Older sister gets some of her friends together and they go scope out the house of the little girl.

The Little girl is home talking to her Mom, who tells her that Thanksgiving is coming up, and that her other mommy would come to visit her on Thanksgiving, which excites her. The little girl says she's been really hungry lately and the mom says it's normal for a growing girl and that she'll have all she can eat this Thanksgiving. The Little girl draws more turkeys and the mom goes into the basement where there's a shrine to Turkey head and there are scraps of flesh, bone and there are parts of a rotting turkey head. The mom clutches a piece of Turkey Head's hair and says that they'll be together soon before she places it on a magic circle on the floor and leaves.

The Older sister and her friends come over and try to look around the house, but run into the little girl. She recognizes her friend's sister and invites them in, even though she's not supposed to. They see that her house is full of Thanksgiving dishes and she says that it's for her mommy coming back soon. They look around the house and it looks really empty and like where someone would hide. They find the basement door is ajar and the older sister takes pictures of the creepy ritual area. The mom gets home and the rest of the friends talk to her and explain why they're there, and they talk loudly enough for the girl to hear them and she sneaks out the basement window and leaves. They leave and catch up with her, and they find out that she took the lock of hair from the circle and took pics of the creepy basement. She says she thinks that maybe the mom is related to Turkey Head somehow but they think she's crazy. She gets home and her friends leave and she realizes she dropped her phone. She quickly goes back alone at night and sneaks back into the basement. She finds the phone and when she goes to leave she gets knocked out by the Bride of Turkey Head and wakes up tied to the table. The Bride tells her that she's exactly what they needed and she makes her eat the hair and bleed on the ritual symbol, and then stuffs her with food. She explains that she made a deal with the Devil to be able to bring Turkey Head back if she provided him with a feast of flesh, and that she will be the sacrifice.

The little girl hangs out with her friend who says that her sister is missing. The little girl talks about how hungry she is lately and they talk more about the situation with her sister missing, and her friends come over looking for her and are told that she's missing so they leave. The friend notices the little girl is missing and she finds her eating a dead bird and tells her she can't do that.

The friends assume something is wrong and say they're going to go back to the house to see if she went back and they're confronted by the mom who says that she hasn't seen her since the previous day. They don't believe her and so they wait until she leaves and then sneak into the house. They look around and find nothing at first, however after they split up, one of the friends is suddenly attacked by a woman with a Turkey on her head who bludgeons them. They put up a fight but eventually their head is smashed like a watermelon. The other friends run and hide in the basement and while they're down there they hear noises. They find the Older sister and she's extremely bloated and looks stuffed to explode. Her mouth is cut open and she has rotten turkey all over her mouth. Her stomach is moving. They try to help her up, but one of the friends is grabbed by the mom in the dark and stabbed several times before having their face crunched by a hammer and falling into the washing machine where they were drowned. The other three escape, leaving Older sister in the basement.

One of the girls runs back to her house and calls the police, who don't believe her, saying Turkey Head was a myth. She freaks out and lays down, but remembers that Turkey Head's child is at Older Sister's house so she goes over there quickly. The police reveal that they actually believed her and an officer, the brother of the one who was killed in the previous movie. Has flash backs to finding his brother's corpse, and so he heads there with several other officers. The Other Girl freaks out and goes to a nearby place with a lot of people and sits at a diner. She sees Turkey Head's reflection in a window and freaks out. She gets up and leaves and sees Turkey Head creeping around several corners before Turkey Head comes out of nowhere and begins stalking the girl. She runs in front of a car, is hit and dies. The Third friend goes to a Library and begins looking up stuff about Turkey Head.

The other girl gets to the home of Older Sister and collects her, but shuns the child of Turkey Head, scared of what she may be. She attacks the little girl, but her friend defends her. She apologizes for it, and as they're leaving the girl gets attacked by an invisible force, and they can see in a mirror that it's Turkey Head. She fights it off and ends up being able to end it by accidentally swinging a cross at it, and then she gets in the car and drives off, almost hitting her remaining friend who just ran from the library. He gets in the car and tells them that he found out there was a survivor of the Turkey Head killings, Turkey Head's Lesbian wife, and that she was pregnant, and had occult capabilities. The little girl starts acting weird and acting possessed, trying to bite everyone.

The police show up at Turkey Head's home and look around. They make it to the basement to find Older Sister has exploded. The police follow the footsteps and see a naked woman standing nearby covered in gore and when they tell her to put her hands up, Bride of Turkey head emerges and stabs one of the officers before the bloody girl reveals that she's turkey head and kills the other cop. Turkey Head and her bride reunite and make out, making love in the blood and guts and then Turkey Head puts on the turkey mask and looks up the stairs. She heads up and has a fight with the last officer and kills him with a rake in the yard.

The teens take the little girl to a church and they ask her if she's had dreams on how to kill Turkey head and she says no. They tie her up and try to do an exorcism which seems to hurt her, and they are suddenly attacked by Turkey Head who appears in a flash of fire. One of the teens fights Turkey head and the other gets attacked by the bride. The little girl also attacks her friend and her friend looks over toward a knife nearby but doesn't want to stab her friend and instead starts trying to read the exorcism. During the fight Turkey Head is able to kill the teen with her electric carver. A priest that was there throws holy water on Turkey Head and Turkey head burns badly before she crucifies the priest with a wishbone. The other teen fights the bride of Turkey Head and kicks her down a flight of stairs where she breaks her leg, and then the teen throws the weapon she had with great force, to strike the radiator behind her which blows her up.

The teen rushes back to find Turkey Head's kid is dead with a stab wound in her chest and the other girl is crying. She goes to help her escape but Turkey Head slams her into a wall. They fight in the church as police cars surround it, and in the end she tricks Turkey head and tackles him into the holy water where he lights on fire and burns her up too. The police come in and rescue the little girl as the camera slowly pans away. They show the little girl being placed into the care of her aunt and uncle, who both work at NASA, and the movie ends.

After the credits. The police state how wild that was, and that there was some crazy occult stuff. They look at the book that was being read from, and he says that it was open to a spell that could be used to switch bodies with someone else, and they say that it's crazy that anyone believes in that sort of shit. The camera then cuts to the little girl who smiles with pointy teeth, and tells the lady there that she's hungry. As the lady walks past the little girl's reflection looks like a Turkey beast of some sort but she shakes it off and walks away. A moment later Turkey Head and the Bride of Turkey head are sitting next to her as ghosts. The bride tells her the cycle will begin anew, and the little girl whispers a rhyme about turkeys before saying happy thanksgiving.

Another schlocky Turkey Head movie, this time pertaining to Turkey Head coming back as a hell creature.... These movies just keep getting more outlandish... Where will the next one take place? Space?

Oh god....
