Sundance Midnight Selection Post-apocalyptic ‘Turbo Kid’ Trailer & Clip

Coming-of-age films as well as dystopian movies are quite popular, but combining those genres into a splatter horror-comedy is a more rare type of project. The Park City at Midnight selection has debuted a couple glimpses at their anticipated film, releasing a teaser for the movie and a pretty gory clip to YouTube. Turbo Kid began as as a short film submission to the horror anthology ABCs of Death, but with the help of producer Ant Timpson, writer-directors François Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell turned their online short into a Sundance feature.

The upcoming movie takes place in a post-apocalyptic parallel future of 1997, where a maniac and self-proclaimed leader of the Wasteland, Zeus, kidnaps the new love of an orphaned teenager called The Kid. The Kid enlists Frederick, the leader of a “legendary Arm-Wrestling Clan,” to help him, “destroy Zeus, avenge his parents’ death and get the girl of his dreams.”
