Directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith
In a dystopian future, a group of prisoners become targets in a state-sponsored hunting game called a “turkey shoot”, where they’ll be preyed upon by evil gun-toting government officials quicker on the draw than Dick Cheney. If the prisoners survive, they’ll be set free. But the prisoners don’t want to take that chance, and soon the totalitarian rulers find themselves with targets on their backs. One of Ozploitation horror king Brian Trenchard-Smith’s greatest films, TURKEY SHOOT is a far more fun and frightening ride than it’s obvious rip-off, THE HUNGER GAMES. Contains strong language, violence and gore.
In a dystopian future, prisoners become targets in a state-sponsored hunting game.

That last kill is fantastic. And the wolfman was an inspired choice way out of left field. Fun movie.
Colorful villains, juicy gore, and great action.
For some reason unknown to me a lot of people seem to really like this. While there are definitely worse (a lot worse) movies on Shudder this movie is not that great. Watchable and fun at times but overall meh. A little bit of penis though!!!
Pretty great flick. Weird and terrible. Definitely see where Hunger Games and Handmaidens Tale got some inspiration. Cheese on a cracker.
Great movie to watch if you're into old-school dystopian films.
