Listen to the Stinker Madness Episode
Watch the Whole Movie!
The deadliest game comes to Stinker Madness once again in the form of Ozploitation with 1982's Turkey Shoot. Brian Trenchard-Smith delivers a classic stinker with some seriously insane sequences and a hell of lot of fun.
Turkey Shoot has a reputation for being pretty hardcore with heavy exploitative tones and excessive gore. We're not really seeing it. This is a fairly tame movie (in relative terms) to other "exploitation" films (see Cannibal Ferox, Mad Foxes, Killer Elephants et al.) So no one should go into this one thinking they are gonna get really offended or grossed out.
There is a ton of great performances and memorable characters. The cast is great with especially epic jobs from Roger Ward, Carmen Duncan and Steve Railsback. Olivia Hussey does a pretty good job of playing an innocent virginal character that makes no sense. She however does NOT do a good job of shooting a .50 cal.
We can't fail to mention that there is a werewolf butler bodyguard in this film.....with no explaination what his deal is.
The villains have no clue what game they are playing. It seems that they should be playing death hunt, but they instead are playing grab ass and weekend pussy hunt. It is no wonder they all get killed. These guys have no business being bad guys.
The end of the movie is truly epic and glorious. If the first 3/4 of the movie is a 7 then end is 9. It's fantastic and puts this one in the must watch list.
