Fortress (of course)
Mad Max
The Road Warrior
The Quest (aka The Go Kids)
The Earthling

anyone know of any others?

Since when is SHAKA ZULU an Aussie production?

reply

MAD MAX was actually released in the 70s.

Don't forget VICIOUS(1988), written by P.J. Hogan, who went on to do MURIEL'S WEDDING, MY BEST FRIEND'S WEDDING, and the latest version of PETER PAN. A tight, pulpy thriller.
