Turkey Shoot (1982, AUS) C-93m. SCOPE ** D: Brian Trenchard-Smith. Starring Steve Railsback, Olivia Hussey, Michael Craig, Carmen Duncan, Noel Ferrier, Linda Stoner, Roger Ward. Science-fiction action exploitation (how about that for a genre) set in the near future, where rich guys have founded a Nazi-like concentration camp where the inmates are brutally tortured and a select few may take part in hunting game where they are the prey. Variation of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME, has a nice futuristic look apart from generally intriguing premise, but film lacks punch and the characters are a mess. Has a MAD MAX touch about it, but totally lacks its quality. Executive produced by John Daly and David Hemmings, who is also said to have done some second unit directing. Score by Brian May. Also known as BLOOD CAMP THATCHER, and ESCAPE 2000.
