Release Details.

The BMX Bandits meet Mad Max in this hugely entertaining and ultra-violent love letter to the VHS era. Set in a vision of the future, Turbo Kid will be instantly recognisable to anyone who spent a wasted youth in the video store – it’s a retro-adventure for the ages!

Munro Chambers (Godsend, TV’s Degrassi: The Next Generation)
Laurence Leboeuf (The Little Queen, Trauma, TV’s Being Human)
Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Starship Troopers, Top Gun)
Aaron Jeffrey (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, TV’s Wentworth Prison)

Directors & Writers:
Anouk Whissell, Fran├žois Simard, Yoann-Karl Whissell (feature debut)


In a post-apocalyptic future, The Kid (Munro Chambers) lives alone in his underground bunker, scavenging for relics from the old world and obsessing over comic books. But when he meets a girl named Apple (Laurence Leboeuf), it’s not long before The Kid has to face his fears and challenge the sadistic Zeus (Michael Ironside), who has declared himself leader of the “Wasteland” and taken control of water supply.

Armed with his ancient turbocharged weapon, he embarks on an incredible journey to rid the Wasteland of evil – and discovers the true meaning of justice and friendship.

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, Fran├žois 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!
