In the near future, three strangers (Steve Railsback, Olivia Hussey, and Lynda Stoner) are taken to a brutal prison run under a totalitarian government. They are deemed to be social deviants and of need of behavior re-modification. The brutal Camp Master Charles Thatcher (Michael Craig) is in charge of the prison. He is helped out by equally cruel and perverse prison guards, including the sadistic chief enforcer Ritter (Roger Ward). Thatcher sets up a Most Dangerous Game style ''turkey shoot'' where Secretary Mallory (Noel Ferrier), and VIPs Jennifer (Carmen Duncan) and Tito (Michael Petrovich) partake in. The trio that we were introduced to earlier in the film, along with two other men, are chosen as the prey. They are set loose, one at a time, as our hunters are then set-off to find and kill them.
Turkey Shoot rocks fucking hard. It maybe dumb and not exceptionally original, but it is nasty fun at its best. Ultra-gory and action packed, it's filled with blood, babes, boobs, and booms (as in things going). As such, it wears its exploitation hat proudly. The site of seeing actors like Hussey and Railsback in movie like this along is worth the price and time of viewing it. A great example of Australian sleaze and gore, this genre masher needs to be seen by more!
