    Had a look at the trailer for this 80's sci fi homage, looks like a lot of fun, out later in the year. The style of the movie reminded me of Hobo with a Shotgun and the movies of Astron 6. It stars Michael Ironside as the baddie.

    drterror666 Too Much... for One Movie!

    Released on 05 October

    Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray Turbo Kid (2015), starring Munro Chambers, Laurence Leboeuf, Michael Ironside, Edwin Wright, and Aaron Jeffery.

    Synopsis: Turbo Kid is a celebration of all things that were awesome about the age of movies on VHS. It's packed with nods to 1980s pop culture (even down to Atari-style credits and its synth-tastic score) and riffs on the kids' adventure movies such BMX Bandits, The Monster Squad and The Goonies.

    And for the hardcore fans, there's another staple of the VHS – bucketloads of gore and violence. With its crazy decapitations, disembowelments, and dismembered limbs, Turbo Kid follows in the footsteps of other hyper pastiche movies such as Wolfcop and Hobo With A Shotgun, with director Jason Eisener bringing his grindhouse touch as a producer!

    Also on hand is legendary actor Michael Ironside, who brings some serious genre credentials to the movie and leads a cast of up-and-coming talent.

    The writing-directing team of Anouk Whissell, François Simard, Yoann-Karl Whissell have not only created a love letter to retro movies, but a love letter to the fans, who are sure to go crazy for The Kid.

    So jump on your dirt bike, turn your walkman up to 11, and get turbocharged!

    Special Features:
    • "Bloody Wasteland" - The Making of Turbo Kid (25 min)
    • "T is for Turbo" (5 min)
