The plot of the film is fairly [[{{Troperrific}} archetypal]]: it's TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture and Australia is controlled by a fascist totalitarian government. For the slightest percieved offenses, "deviants" are sent to prison camps to be subjected to reformative torture. The new arrivals at Re-Ed Camp 47 are Chris Walters (Olivia Hussey), a shopkeeper accused of helping a rebel; Rita Daniels (Lynda Stoner), a suspected sex worker; and Paul Anders (Steve Railsback), a political dissident who has escaped from several other camps. After suffering brutal treatment at the hands of Camp Master Charles Thatcher (Michael Craig) and his chief enforcer, Ritter (Roger Ward), the prisoners accept a deadly deal. They will be [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame human prey in a 'turkey shoot']] Thatcher has organised for Secretary Mallory (Noel Ferrier), and fellow [=VIPs=] Jennifer (Carmen Duncan) and Tito (Michael Petrovich). If they can evade the heavily armed guests in the surrounding jungle until sundown, Chris, Rita and Paul will be set free, or so Thatcher claims...

* EnforcedMethodActing: Rumor has it that real bullets were fired at the actors in some scenes, though they may have just been BB's (still [[EyeScream capable of causing injury though]]).

The film is a [[NarmCharm charmingly cheesy]], campy, over-the-top BMovie, that can be a lot of fun if you acknowledge it for what it is and [[MST3KMantra don't think too hard about it]]. Recommended for anyone interested in Australian cinema, or who enjoyed ''MadMax''. QuentinTarantino has cited both the film and its director as among his favorites.

* {{Make an Example of Them}}: A scene which impressed even QuentinTarantino is [[TheBrute Ritter]] (played by [[GiantMook 6ft, 3"]] Roger Ward) shadowboxing and then beating to death a tiny female inmate, picked at random as a 'lesson' to the NewMeat.
