Turbo Kid

Turbo Kid

Turbo Kid

An unapologetic, violent throwback to everything that made ‘80s junk-food cinema so rad. Set in the post-apocalyptic future of 1997, a comic book-loving kid happens upon a mysterious girl, a turbocharged weapon, and his destiny – to deliver justice to the world by eradicating evil-doers.

The film began life as the five-and-a-half minute short T is for Turbo, a hugely popular entry into the user-submitted ‘26th director’ contest for the 2012 horror anthology The ABCs of Death.

Not bad

After watching Kung Fury this was a must. Has everything you expect.

BMX slash post-apocalyptic future

I love B grade movies especially if they are extra cheesey. This one is definitely bringing the cheese. Splatter movie meets BMX bandits in a post-apocalyptic future. Bad acting, bad make-up, bad special effects. Shot on a budget. This movie is a laugh a minute and makes no attempt at making it hollywood-style. Got to love the bad because it's so good.

A comedically faux mid-80s sci-fi cheapie set in the generic post-apocalyptic wasteland.

An endearingly sincere romp through '80s popcorn-flick tropes.
