Watch the trailer. Do it. Are you excited yet?!
A dystopian future according to the 80s? Check. Outrageous cyberpunk costumes? Check. Mini bikes, lots of gore, and a killer soundtrack? Check, check, check.This sort of thing is my bag, baby. And just inspired another post I’ll be writing shortly.
So far all we have is a trailer, but that’s all I needed for this to win me over completely. I just found out that this is actually an adaptation/expansion on a short film that was submitted for the first ABCs Of Death anthology titled “T Is For Turbo“. If you’re totally impatient like me and need this right now, you can search for this short film on youtube and find a couple of clips.
