The hunted of the year 2000, a cult survival from 1982 is approaching

In the near future, citizens considered deviant or opposed to the government are sent to re-education camps. Ruled with an iron fist by a certain Charles Thatcher (Michael Craig), the place is synonymous with torture and cruel abuse. One day, he decides to release the prisoners who become the prey of a ruthless manhunt.

A UFO of Australian genre cinema, The Hunted of the Year 2000 (Turkey Shoot in original version) is inspired by The Hunts of Count Zaroff (Irving Pichel, Ernest B. Shoedsack, 1932) to denounce the barbarity of totalitarian regimes. Shot in the hostile landscapes of Queensland, Brian Trenchard Smith's survival game is astounding with a crazy outburst of violence laced with gory episodes.
