Movie Reviews

Only ever seen the butchered U.K video. This should be good.
Martin Montag | INTERZONE | 09/12/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Escape 2000 was released on video in the U.K during the early eighties, as Turkey Shoot, with a lurid cover design, and the prospect of some good old ultra violence, with just a dash of the in out in out, to mix things up. Not in the hacked up by the BBFC 18cert version that i first viewed, as a teen. So the chance to, after so many years get an unrated in 1.2.35:1 widescreen dvd is great news to me, just pre-ordered mine.
Plus being Anchor Bay they've managed to get the director to do a commentary plus there are interviews with cast and crew. Has to be worth the price of the hunt.....
5 stars isn't enough

"My 1st introduction to escape 2000 was this uncut version and blew my expectations away! this has it all and then some. Anyone with distaste for the government ends up in a nazi style camp, where nothing good happens to them except being turned loose for a chance to escape while being hunted down like animals for sport. Steve Railsback is great as usual up against some nasty Aussie baddies and one half-man half-beast. Special features has director smith disowning the film but his descriptions and stories are hilarious. Prisoners are tortured, babes lose their clothes, a guy gets cut in half, and much more in this freakin' masterpeice! DVD picture is very good WS anamorphic and 5.1 surround sound"
Chaos, violence, nihilism, despair, all set to a pulsing syn

"A/K/A "Turkey Shoot", I discovered this flick thru the great Aussie exploitation documentary, "Not Quite Hollywood". A great find, the film is a bold, shameless women-in-prison / futuristic-death-chase hybrid with virtually nothing but action. After about (literally) one minute of exposition, we are thrown into the scenario: three attractive young people are hauled into a cruel "re-education" camp, where they can either put up with brutal torture or plan their escape. They do the latter. The last half of the film is set up as a "Most Dangerous Game"-style death hunt. As the actors will tell you in the DVD extras, anything that was not an action sequence was cut from the script before shooting. That makes for a lack of motivation but an overabundance of fistfights, shower nudity, eye-gouging, bloody motor vehicle mayhem, etc. My best out-of-nowhere item in the film is the half-man/half-wolf "pet" one of the hunters owns... no explanation for its condition is given whatsoever! It is just dropped into the story without the bat of an eye. Love it. Made around the same time as "Dawn of the Dead", and with a similar vibe... chaos, violence, nihilism, despair, all set to a pulsing synth score. 4/5."
Like watching a 3.2million dollar troma movie

"this was absolutelly amazing. I bought this with out knowing what this was or if it was good. The story is amazing the gore is awesome for the time, the acting is amazing, and lots of big explosions. But one of my favorite things is the soundtrack, its filled with lots of electronic synth, helps pull off the futuristic 1995 aspect. this reminds me if lloyd kaufman made a 3 million dollar 70's movie any troma fan would love or peter jackson fan."
