Turkey Shoot

An Australian take on the ‘young troublemakers re-educated in remote torture camps’ future fascist chestnut, with funny police vans, giant chess and other sub-Adventure Game torture devices, compulsory fish-filleting, Olivia Hussey, and a werewolf in a top hat, before it all turns into episode three of The Deadly Assassin.

    Feels like it should have been a video nasty, but I don’t think it was.

    According to the director, Brian Trenchard Smith, he was desperately trying to make the movie as the money men were chipping away at his budget and time, and decided it was getting so ridiculous that it was a comedy. Also features top Aussie heavy Roger Ward. But the werewolf is the best bit, it’s like an X-rated Saturday morning cartoon with him in it.
