Director: Brian Trenchard-Smith
"There is topless nudity aplenty - shower shots, dressing shots, undressing shots - anything and everything the hormones of a raging horror/sci-fi fan could long for." - DVD Verdict
Faced with a growing number of unemployed teenagers, the Australian government has started locking them up in a drive-in cinema where they are fed a diet of junk food, beer and all night movies. Cars have been converted into dwellings and a punk suburbia has emerged.
Lauded by Quentin Tarantino as the go-to guy for Aussie action films (and most pointedly homaged in Death Proof), filmmaker Brian Trenchard-Smith (Turkey Shoot, MIFF 08) conjures up a destructive automotive wasteland in this 80s Ozploitation classic. Sparks fly in frenetic high-speed chases, outrageous stunts and explosive shoot-outs.
Based on a short story by Peter Carey.
