Based on the film of the same name, Turbo Kid is the upcoming gory homage to classic Metroidvanias of the ‘90s (with a few unexpected spins!) by developer Outerminds.
Shortly after Mad Max: Fury Road was released to theaters, an edited version of the original theatrical trailer was uploaded online, stylistically changing the tone of Fury Road to something one would expect to see at the grindhouse.
Since then The Playback Collective have created three more trailers in a similar vein; designed to take you back a few decades into the past.
“Maybe it was those torn cheesy covers of old VHS horror films that were prohibited by mom and dad. It was something about those years, those years that had to be played back.”
Let’s face it, the 1980s were awesome! So it’s expected that nostalgia will run rampant, but few modern films have been able to capture the decade’s idiosyncrasies like Turbo Kid.
