“TURKEY SHOOT’s combination of high and lowbrow impulses creates a strange heady mixture. Its thought-provoking setup is blasted to smithereens by video-game style carnage engineered by people clearly motivated by the desire to blow things up.” - The Guardian

Legendary action director and world-class blower-upper Brian Trenchard-Smith gives you a totalitarian near future, where defiant citizens are labeled “deviants” and sentenced to brutal “behavior modification” camps. When new prisoners Anders (Steve Railsback, THE STUNT MAN; HELTER SKELTER) and Walters (Olivia Hussey, ROMEO & JULIET; BLACK CHRISTMAS) are chosen as human prey for rich people to hunt, they will be thrust into a nightmare of depravity, dismemberment, cleaved skulls, exploding heads, lesbians with crossbows and the insane hungers of a deformed cannibal circus freak!

Director Trenchard-Smith was promised a large budget with many extras, top-flight sets and special effects – but at the last minute, the production lost funding and he was forced to improvise. Fortunately he was more than up to the task; TURKEY SHOOT more than makes up for it in pace, excitement and blood.
