Win TURBO KID on DVD In Our Competition!


To celebrate the release of Turbo Kid – on digital download 28th September and DVD/Blu-ray 5th October – we have a copy on DVD to giveaway!

Set in a vision of the future, Turbo Kid will be instantly recognisable to anyone who spent a wasted youth in the video store – it’s a retro-adventure for the ages!

It’s packed with nods to 1980s pop culture (even down to Atari-style credits and its synth-tastic score) and riffs on the kids’ adventure movies such The Monster Squad and The Goonies.

With its crazy decapitations, disembowelments, and dismembered limbs, Turbo Kid follows in the footsteps of other hyper pastiche movies such as Wolfcop and Hobo With A Shotgun, with director Jason Eisener bringing his grindhouse touch as a producer!

Also on hand is legendary actor Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Starship Troopers), who brings some serious genre credentials to the movie and leads a cast of up-and-coming talent.

About Bat 7107 Articles
I love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Kingdom Come: Deliverance


  1. While initially it was a toss up Scanners and Total Recall, in the end I have to go with his perfectly straight delivery of “…they sucked his brains out” so the winner is Starship Troopers. Perfect.

  2. It has to be Starship Troopers. Not a starring role for Ironside, but the movie as a whole is a brilliant slab of sci-fi – a real cult classic.

  3. It’s got to be Scanners – mainly because I love Cronenberg but, also, one of his earlier roles and his acting is spot on.

  4. Scanners was his most iconic role but kind of stereotyped him to portraying those type of slightly shady characters. I liked his role in SeaQuest 2032

  5. ironside is one of those great scenery chewers, never out of work. love him.

    i’m gonna go for watchers starring corey haim. it’s a really lame adaption of a koontz novel, and ironside is the bad-guy government agent. he starts off quite subtle for him, but as the film goes on he goes through every gear he has, ending up literally frothing at the mouth as he turns the crazy up to 11 for the finale.

    he probably only did about 3 days filming and he’s the only thing you remember about the film afterwards (the next best thing in the film after him is a guy with a laughably bad english accent). guys like him and jeffrey combs made careers out of making utter crap watchable.

  6. Top Gun – he was as dashing as the lead, smashing as Jester, authoritative and compassionate. Excellent actor with a great voice. I’m a fan!

  7. The Machinist – Although there are many films in which Michael Ironside has had much bigger roles, this is my favourite one featuring him as Christian Bale is engrossing and physically shocking as the guilt-ridden, paranoid insomniac whose life was falling apart.

  8. So many to choose from as he’s a great actor, but for me, the now retro Total Recall as the character Richter, he absolutely owned that role, totally believable performance. His resume is impressive and a testament to the quality of his acting ability.

  9. Though he’s not one of the starring roles X-men first class. Either that or Scanners….. Love an exploding head!

  10. ‘Top Gun’ is my favourite, definitely a cult classic and still as enjoyable to watch now as it was back in the 80s

  11. Scanners – besides being such an iconic slice of cinema, its full of nostalgic memories form watching it a hundred times with my dad.

  12. Has to be The Next Karate Kid for me, particularly for the end scene where Ironside playing the leader of the bully group says he’s going to “punch his [Mr Miyagi’s] lights out”.
