In a dystopian future where deviants are held in "re-education" camps, a freedom fighter and a wrongfully-accused prisoner form an alliance to survive their decadent oppressors' game of kill-or-be-killed - and turn the tide against them.
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.Written by

When Chris cuts Ritter's hands off, traumatically amputating both of them, even though there are several arteries and veins in the stumps, other than blood on the stumps, there's no blood spurting out them at all. This is an impossibility. As long as Ritter's heart was flowing, blood would have initially shot out of the stumps slowing as his heart stopped. See more »

When assembled, it has three moving parts. A self-contained gas supply, which will propel a paralyzing hypo-dart at four hundred meters. Give or take, 1% accuracy. Mr. Mallory is going to licence it for his department... after the little test.
[she finishes assembling it]
Thirty-two seconds. You manipulate well, my dear - like a part of your body.
It is my own design.
Yes, a very nice piece, hm. Serviceable, well-contoured, good feel... perhaps just a trifle ...

Extreme violence and some nudity cut for US release. See more »
Set in a totalitarian future society, this film has a bleak but quite vividly drawn vision of the world...for its first 20 minutes or so; then it turns into a straight action-chase adventure. The uncut 90-minute version is extremely gory, but some of the effects are rather lame. Nevertheless, it's a fast-paced, trashily entertaining film, and the actors are adequate for the little they're asked to do. (**)
