Movies TURBO KID Is Coming To Save The Future/Past written by Robert Reineke January 30, 2015 The Sundance film festival isn’t something normally associated with the type of films that make up Modern Myth Media. But the midnight movies program this year featured one that just might qualify. I’ve attached the teaser trailer for TURBO KID below. If you were a child of the 80s, this should bring back memories as the only thing missing seems to be a VHS box for the movie to come in. It’s something of an instant relic, but who can really complain when you see such a loving recreation of a period of time. They even got Michael Ironside to play the villain, which further adds to its authenticity. This seems destined to be a midnight movie at some point in 2015. But, it’s probably going to be fun to see Turbo Kid save the post-apocalyptic world of 1997 (!) with his BMX bike and other artifacts of the 80s. Since we seem to be in a strong patch of 80s nostalgia centered around remakes, an “original” take on that era could be fun. I don’t know if the film actually comments on the era, I hope it does, but nostalgia in small doses isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Let us know your thoughts below.

I doubt it will be as good, as The Guest was retro/modern in its sensibilities and I can’t imagine that there’s a Dan Stevens in the cast, but there’s plenty of room to play in that sandbox. I’m still not sick of retro 80s synth scores.
