Brian May - Turkey Shoot OST lp (Dual Planet)


"The notorious 1982 Australian film, Turkey Shoot (Also known as Escape
2000 in the US and Blood Camp Thatcher in the UK) has long been
considered the ultimate of Australian Video Nasties. Set in a dystopian
future where a totalitarian regime imprison a group of ‘deviants’ to a
high security prison destined for rehabilitation and social
re-programming. The story involves the group of inmates fleeing from the
camp controlled by the draconian warden, a sadistic alopecic henchmen
and a bizarrely scripted lycanthropic carnival-mutant…shall we read
Produced by Antony I Ginnane’s F.G films (Patrick, Thirst, Snapshot,
etc…) together with British actor David Hemming (Blow Up, Fragment of
Fear, Deep Red), the film was aesthetically influenced by the brutality
and savagery of Italian sub-genre cinema, (i.e. Umberto Lenzi’s Cannibal
films and Lucio Fulci’s Zombie films), as well as borrowing the central
theme from the 1932 film The Most Dangerous Game. Scored by renowned
Australian film composer Brian May (Mad Max, Patrick, The Day After
Halloween), the predominantly electronic soundtrack hints stylistically
to brooding horror-synth of John Carpenter, the mutant patchbay of Gil
Melle’s soundtrack to The Andromeda Strain as well as some of the sonic
characteristics found in Italian B-cinema (Fabio Frizzi & Goblin).
Pulsing synth oscillations and pounding percussion together with
inspired sound design all encapsulate the confused and claustrophobic
human big-game hunt"
