Summer of '82


Legendary action director and world-class blower-upper Brian Trenchard-Smith brings you a dark portrait of the future. In the year 1995, everything will fall apart. We'll be herded into re-education camps and forced to wear yellow jumpsuits. Occasionally we'll be turned loose and hunted down by the privileged rich and their completely inexplicable dog-man henchman. Fortunately we'll get some guns and completely blast the shit out of everybody and everyone. Director Trenchard-Smith was promised a large budget with many extras and top-flight sets and special effects but at the last minute the production lost funding and he was forced to improvise. Fortunately he was more than up to the task and if ESCAPE 2000 lacks professional polish, it more than makes up for it in pace, excitement and blood.  Aka TURKEY SHOOT & BLOOD CAMP THATCHER. (Lars)
