      Anton Bitel VODzilla.co There's more than one kind of camp in this excessive Ozploitation dystopia. Worth hunting down. Jul 28, 2017 Full Review Anton Bitel Eye for Film a sadistic melange of cartoon villains, mutant monsters, over-the-top action set-pieces and ultra-violent sensationalism - in fact, the closest that Australian cinema ever came to the spirit of Jess Franco.

      Audience Member This got trashed a lot in it's time, but my God! This is Grindhouse glory! The kind only Brian Trenchard Smith can delight with soo well. Sure, it's not breaking any new ground with its Most Dangerous Game plot, but if you're in the mood for good exploitation fun, it's hard to find much better. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/22/22 Full Review Audience Member Escape 2000 aka Turkey Shoot it's an unbelievable Ozploitation Grindhouse Independent cult film with unbelievable death scenes and dark humor. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/26/20 Full Review delysid d Don't listen to these dumb people this film is great! But don't listen to me as I am a DEVIANT! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/19/18 Full Review Audience Member Drive-in fodder update of The Most Dangerous Game has developed a cult following because of its explicit violence. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member In a totalitarian country, any subversives, undesirables and "deviants" are sent to a prison camp to be rehabilitated and reeducated. The camp is run in fascist fashion, with guards torturing and killing prisoners for sport. Their pinnacle of the guards oppression is an event where a select band of prisoners are set free in the surrounding bush, to be hunted by the guards and special guests for sport - the Turkey Shoot. Quite trashy with very low production values, but you know this going in - this is, after all, a B-grade exploitation movie. However, Turkey Shoot is pretty bad even by that genre's standards. Basic, lame plot. Really not much too it. There is some intrigue about how the prisoners escape their ordeal, but it becomes quite predictable, quite quickly. Some incredibly stupid, implausible scenes - the writers and director weren't even trying to make things seem realistic. For example, man has his legs crushed by a bulldozer. Blood magically starts gushing from his chest and mouth. Now I'm no doctor but that seems medically impossible. Then there's the performances. They're largely of the ultra-hammy variety, with the actor who played the whip-cracking chief guard particularly bad. However, Olivia Hussey puts in a good performance, especially considering the script and direction she had to work with, and is about the only good thing about the movie. She looks distinctly out of place in this movie, being a decent actor and having starred in movies like Romeo and Juliet and Death on the Nile. Her career must have been in a massive slump for her to agree to appear in this. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Dated crap. I need to stop watching rubbish like this.
