Frightfest Preview: Turbo Kid

To begin the countdown to this year’s Frightfest festival, we’re going to be taking a look at some of the films we’re most excited to see.  First up:  Turbo Kid

 

Turbo Kid is written and directed buy Canadian trio François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell.  Set in a post-apocalyptic 1997, the film follows the story of the Kid, a comic book-obsessed orphan who scavenges the wastelands on his BMX looking for items to trade for water.

When his new best friend/love interest is kidnapped by self-proclaimed “King of the Wasteland” Zeus, the Kid embarks on a rescue mission to retrieve her from his maniacal army of doom.

The comparisons to Mad Max are of course obvious, but this promises to be a hit in its own right.  With a sackful of 80’s film tropes and a deliciously over the top amount of gore, this is sure to please the crowd on Frightfest‘s opening night – just as it already has done at Sundance and other festivals this year.
