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 fun, frightening ride with lasting influence in things like THE HUNGER GAMES. Contains strong language, violence and gore.
In a dystopian future, prisoners become targets in a state-sponsored hunting game.
Cast: Steve Railsback, Olivia Hussey, Michael Craig
Most concepts in this movie are pretty ridiculous. This doesn’t even qualify as a horror movie imo. I’m an Olivia Hussey fan, and it provided a topless shower scene. I liked the cockiness of the boyfriend character, always smiling at the guards. The circus freak was the only true horror element
pretty idiotic movie but enough unintended lameness that it wouldnt be unimaginable that me and my BF might watch it a hundred times and always be quoting the stupid lines. worth a watch if you got a friend and a half-gallon of jim beam to enjoy it with
Pretty good for it's time. Reminds me of when I read "The Most Dangerous Game" 5 out 5 spooky skeleton heads.
Great 80s dystopian action film!
