Quotes

Charles Thatcher: One of you has been foolish enough to try to leave us before his re-education was completed. In my view this is treason, and will be treated as such. You will remember our motto: 'Freedom is obedience, obedience is work, work is life'. Well, now understand once and for all that the reverse is also true, 'Disobedience is treason, treason is a crime, crime will be punished!'

Very exciting and violent...
10 March 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

The "Turkey Shoot" is one of my favourite films ever.Original music by Brian May,plenty of violence,blood and torture and two gorgeous ladies:very charming Olivia Hussey(she is so sexy in this one!)and Carmen Duncan.Some of the scenes of mayhem are really over-the-top for example machete in head and many more.To summarize,this picture is very exciting and memorable.I would give it a perfect 10 out of 10,mainly for creativity and uniqueness.Check it out,if you can find it-it's rather difficult to locate this title.Many people gave it 1-don't listen to them.Watch it for yourself.
